TOO MANY T’S+ RUANE MAURICE

One of the hottest acts on the UK circuit today will be shooting around the country with their ever-faithful DJ, Savage Henry, throughout October and November. Too Many T’s describe their sound as Golden Era Hip Hop… but now, which sums up their unique approach to the genre to a T!

Standaloft and Rhymes have been creating waves throughout the music world since the day they set up shop in late 2011. Since then, then have toured the UK twice and supported the likes of Wu Tang Clan, Ugly Duckling and Big Daddy Kane. The London based duo is set to cause a huge stir on the South Coast when they open up for De La Soul at Camp Bestival. The T’s have wowed crowds and gained fans at Secret Garden Party, V Festival, Glastonbury (where they played EIGHT times this year), Bestival, Shambala, Beat-Herder and many, many more.

October will see the release of Too Many T’s latest musical output, Running Wild EP. The 9-track record is to be given away completely free and will feature some extremely special guests, all of which will be revealed in the coming months. The first track from the record, ’1992 Pt.II’ was released in June and picked up by both BBC 6Music and XFM. Another future classic will see the light of day in August with the title track and HUGE music video being released along with the full EP.

Too Many T’s do nothing but amaze crowds with their quick fire, back-to-back flows, big hooks and on-stage charisma. Come and witness what is taking the music industry by storm.

Plus opening support from RUANE MAURICE

Talk to Ruane Maurice about growing up in Birmingham, England, and you’ll get everyday teenage exploits about 5am car rides or falling into manholes. Talk to them about contemporary hip-hop and electronic music, and it quickly becomes clear that Chris Caedus, Matthew Forbes, and Sam Lewis are something altogether unexpected. Mixing early-90s slow jam melodies with the sonic adventurism of musique concrète, and then infusing it with the sultry darkness of early industrial bands like This Heat and Throbbing Gristle, Ruane Maurice expertly package juxtaposition and abstraction. But when they take that sonic experimentation and overlay with rapid-fire rap lyricism, that’s when their particular brand of music becomes visionary.

Together for little over a year, Ruane Maurice have already played some of the UK’s most respected venues (Motion, Corsica, Kraak Event Space), garnering attention for both their live shows and DJ sets. Future events include performances with some of electronic music’s heavy weights—Mount Kimbie, Pariah, Todd Edwards, and many more. Their self-titled debut album Ruane Maurice is due for release on 9th September 2014 via Brooklyn label, Stars & Letters Records.
