OLS 8th Birthday Feat: OCEAN WISDOM / CRACKER JON / SPECIAL GUESTS + Support - Hip Hop & Grime in Exeter
Well it’s true time really does fly! It has now been nearly 8 years since our first OneLion event back in November 2008! Over this time we have had the pleasure of bringing a huge amount of amazingly talented djs and mcs to Devon. Over the years we have witnessed new generations come and go, but kept firm our passion for underground UK music and are currently branching of with our own record label and clothing line. For more info on OLS check out our website.
ROOM 1 (Live hip hop & Grime all night)
Born in Camden, now residing in Brighton, 22 year old MC Ocean Wisdom is the new kid everyone is talking about. His underground smash “Walkin’ – propelled him from being one of the many up and coming MC’s in the country, to one of the most exciting prospects at the forefront of a booming UK Hip Hop scene.
Having gathered well over 1 million views on his own YouTube channel with his first video, “Walkin’ spread through the internet like wildfire, leaving everyone with one question on their minds -”Who is Ocean Wisdom?”
He soon agreed a deal with High Focus to release his debut album “Chaos 93’” - 18 months later, in February 2016, Chaos 93’ was released and peaked at 10th position in the UK iTunes album charts eventually finishing the week in 23rd. The album also peaked in 14 different territories throughout the world.
Chaos 93’ featured some the premier league of the UK scene, boasting features from the likes of Foreign Beggars, The Four Owls, Lunar C, Dirty Dike, Remus, Leafdog, Jam Baxter and more.
Ocean is currently touring around the world to promote the album and is already planning his next release, which may well be before the end of 2016.
Yes our main man Cracker will be coming back to Exeter for 1 night only! This guy has graced the stage at OLS more times than once and always brings the unexpected illy vibes ganenteed from this ukhh veteran! This time we will be privileged to hear music from his new album due to drop by the end of the year!
