It wasn’t too long ago that Hypeman Sage and producer Subculture Sounds teamed up to create the hip-hop duo that are creeping their way into everyone’s soundcloud favourite lists today.

You’ve been described in the past as being ‘The Streets with better rhyming skills.’ Do you think this is a fair description of your music?
We’re a big fan of The Streets and flattered for the comparison but no, we don’t.
You seem very excited about your new video for your up-and-coming EP. Do you think music videos still have a place in the industry?

What sort of year do you have lined up? Festivals? More EP releases?
Very exciting year with the EP coming out, new releases from the EP will be starting from July, loads of shows over summer all over the UK and we’ll be at Boomtown and Bestival

Our debut live PA show! Raw hip-hop, percussion and mic
So there we have it, and here are a couple of tracks to have a listen to before you see these guys on the 30th May.
