Stereo MCs at Epic Studios
Stereo MC’s bring their eclectic mix of electronica / indie / hip-hop to the Epic Studios stage on Thursday 24th October. And Grapevine have discounted tickets on offer… read on!
Formed in the mid 80’s inspired by electronic music and early hip-hop, and the original trendsetters of rave and indie fusion such as The Happy Mondays and Primal Scream, Stereo MC’s are seasoned veterans of the British dance music scene that still wow crowds with their hypnotic stage presence and energetic live sets. The band are renowned for their iconic indie-rave electronica with a sprinkle of hip-hop flow by way of trademark UK-style rhymes provided by lead vocalist Rob Birch.
Stereo MC’s began their musical journey through the establishment of independent record label called G Street Records which released many UK hip hop artists and signed US acts such as Jungle Brothers .
Shortly after, Stereo MC’s signed to Island/4th & Broadway records, released their first LP and toured extensively as a live act garnering a reputation on multi-tours and festivals. Their 3rd LP ‘Connected’, released in 1992, became a worldwide hit and the song ‘Connected’ is widely regarded as a classic. In 2015, growing tired of the major record label bubble, they decided to go back to their roots and embark on a new project and the label ‘Connected’ was born.
Born out of their never-faltering love of dance music, Connected first acted as a vehicle for themselves to release new music of their own as well as other artists, encompassing Afro House, Deep House, Techno and all variations of those genres. With distribution through Kompakt Records in Cologne, the label has grown extensively in the last few years and is now on its 40th release.
Apart from still touring as a live band, and with numerous releases (including collaborations with Adam Port, Anja Schneider and Terranova amongst others) Rob Birch and Nick Hallam also continue their love of DJing with seminal club nights. An essential part of the Connected label, special Connected club nights are a regular occurrence featuring a variety of acts who release on the label; including David Mayer, Florian Busse, Nandu and Aaaron.
Don’t miss the chance to catch them live as they stop off at Norwich’s own Epic Studios for what is sure to be a night to remember!
Stereo MC’s are supported by local hip-hop outfit Chrome.
