POPULATION:7+ LADY SANITY + ED GEATER + VIDORRA (DJ SET)

One of the most interesting and vibrant acts currently performing – evolving from a beat based experiment into a live, organic organism that wield an obvious love of hip-hop, funk and soul with blasts of alternative rock or laid-back jazz, a unique and engaging sound.

‘Fiero’ is the bands latest album, following on from last years ‘WHYP7’ disc, and continues to see the band evolve and move, pushing new boundaries and expanding their ever widening, cinematic take on the hip-hop genre and beyond.

Hailing from Birmingham, England, Lady Sanity is female emcee with a message. Her musical interests developed in her teenage years, when she began teaching herself how to play the guitar, exploring music technology and song writing.

The desire to become an empowering female emcee led Robbins to network worldwide with producers, rappers and singers over the internet. In 2014, positive responses to her debut mix-tape, Construction, and support from the BBC, encouraged the rapper to establish herself further in the music industry. With musical interest originating from multiple genre’s, her inspiration is never ending; with influences from the greats like Lauryn Hill, MC Lyte and Missy Elliot.

The new era of real female emcee’s are back; and Lady Sanity is one to watch for, rising on the rap scene.
