Event description
Legend of UK Hip Hop Rodney P is coming to Guernsey

About this Event

St James presents a Hip Hop night of epic proportions, featuring legendary Rodney P, with Hip Hop Producer Skitz and Dr Syntax, already known to Guernsey audiences from his performances with The Mouse Outfit at the Vale Earth Fair a few years ago. Performing with Dr Syntax is producer Pete Cannon, together the two will bring their own brand of irreverent, often comedic hip hop (with a touch of bass music and jungle for good measure). Support by local outfit Asylum Seekas.

RODNEY P & SKITZ

Rodney P is widely acknowledged as the Godfather of UK Rap. Inspiring a whole generation of British emcees and producers by being the first to rap in his authentic London accent and produce a home-grown Hip Hop reggae vibe that is distinctly rooted in the UK. Following the international success of London Posse, Rodney P has enjoyed one of the most esteemed and perpetual careers in UK hip hop to date. Recognised as Britain's most eligible candidate for Hip-Hop ambassador; indeed for many his name is synonymous with UK Hip-Hop.Skitz gained recognition as a homegrown Hip Hop producer fusing the rawness of UK emcees with solid production and distinctively jamaican influenced basslines. His first album Countryman won Hip Hop album of the year and catapaulted rappers such as Est’elle, Roots Manuva and Skinnyman into the limelight.

DR SYNTAX & PETE CANNON

UK hip hop legends Dr Syntax & Pete Cannon are back with a new album, 'Wallop'. After a decade of touring together, the duo's renowned live show is a riotous mash-up of styles and genres, and 'Wallop' reflects this eclectic approach to a T.

Fresh from providing certified bangers for the likes of Ocean Wisdom, Dirty Dike and Inja, Pete Cannon continues the trend here with touches of jungle, breakbeat and grime, as well as his trademark hip hop sound.

Syntax and Pete have carved themselves a niche with their irreverent, often comedic take on rap; witty, relatable rhymes are paired with hard-hitting beats showcasing a variety of styles and influences.

On vocal duties, Syntax shows his versatility and well-honed skills, supplying the perfect compliment to Pete's heavyweight production.

Until 2017 he fronted Manchester-based band The Mouse Outfit, appearing on all their albums to date and rocking hundreds of crowds in venues and festivals all over Europe.

Pete Cannon is a one-man production powerhouse, having worked with US rappers such as Action Bronson and Guilty Simpson, as well as a who's who of UK hip hop talent, notably most of the ever-growing High Focus roster.

He produced ‘Lost Generation’, a UK top 5 hit for Rizzle Kicks, and Ocean Wisdom’s single ‘Don’, from his Top 40-charting album ‘Wizville’. The track was used internationally for the advert for EA Sports' 'FIFA 19' game.

In March 2018, his solo single ‘Bang Bang’ was used on an advert for Apple’s iPhone X, bringing his music to an international audience of millions.
