Almatic are a Hip Hop 5 piece based in Bristol, although the term Hip Hop is too simple. Effortlessly melding styles including Neo Soul, Folk and Breakbeat to create a truly captivating high-energy show with moments of intimacy crafted into each performance. Fronted by rapper Olly Hobaps who’s formidable skills as a conscious wordsmith create a perfect balance to the hauntingly beautiful tones of singer Katie Riddle. Combine these two with next-level percussion, intelligent keys and infectious bass lines and you have an innovate live-outfit pushing the envelope and creating banging tunes.
Excelling in their first year, from their debut headlining the Attic in Bristol to packed out festival shows including Boomtown, Shambala and Beatherder; which helped grab the attention of Diplomats of Sound who now have Almatic on their roster. Almatic are continuing to raise the bar in 2018.
"At Shambala Festival at The Phantom Laundry we’re always looking for the freshest word-led music around and Almatic bring us the depth and energy we need in our venue. We can’t wait to have them back! Having years of live experience as individual musicians, Almatic is the culmination of some of Bristol’s favorite live acts. This is a band with enough energy and charisma to sit alongside the best of them" - Ben Capp (Area Manager - Phantom Laundry)
Binbag Wisdom make golden-era Hip Hop that is transformed into clever modern-day observations on society, simultaneously abstract and astute. Driven by the towering delivery of MC Binbags these guys never fail to get the crowd jumping, and yet there music enters realms much deeper than purely party music.
With intelligent rhymes and a rare knack of being both self assured and self-deprecating their music is equally as powerful when kicking back in the armchair and absorbing their witty realism. Essentially BinBag wisdom achieve what so much modern rap doesn't – original, insightful, playful and banging!
