MR FLEX / TIGERMONKEY
Mr. Flex is not your average rapper, don’t expect small talk or club tracks that speak on nothing! Instead expect to be enlightened by some bars of steel and intricate wordplay and inventive use of metaphors and verbs. Mr Flex will be performing tracks of his Underground classic Nothing To Prove alongside DJ Blunote.
New kids on the block, Tigermonkey is comprised of vocalist Madeleine Dunbar and producer/vocalist Guy Katsav. Their high-octane, fun, cross- genre music is a striking combination of bouncy African rhythm, Middle- Eastern percussive beats, electric guitars and catchy vocal hooks.
Additionally, GETME! DJs handle turntable duties between the acts.
Tickets for this show are priced at £9 and go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 6th February from the following links:
