Bristol trio The Scribes consisting of lyricist/multi instrumentalist Ill Literate, rapper Jonny Steele and beatbox maestro Lacey have today dropped their latest release ‘The Scribes Present Mr Teatime & The End Of The World’.
The talented trio first came to my attention when Aimee introduced me to their music back in our StandUpUK days and we continued to support and be fans of their music when I set up HHLAT and they were one of the first people to kindly appear in a video on our youtube channel.
Since then the guys have moved on to build a solid fan base, earning rave reviews and renowned for delivering breath taking performances full of energy and off the cuff freestyling guaranteed to move any crowd. Known for their award winning live show The Scribes push the limits of hip hop to almost breaking point, both musically and lyrically, to create the group’s trademark sound featuring a seamless blend of live instrumentation and sampling set against a block rocking backdrop of booming bass and hard hitting breaks, with appeal reaching far beyond traditional hip hop fare.
They continue that mantra with this new release, the group are back with a brand new concept, something a little bit different than you may be use to, lets set the scene for you….
The Scribes received this message “My name is Mr Teatime, I am contacting you from the year 2074. The world is now a very different place. After the bomb dropped the robots took control. Please heed my warning. I am so alone.”
