The Mouse Outfit
The Reading Rooms, Friday 17 November, 20:00, 18+
Fronted by UK hip-hop legend Dr Syntax and verbal acrobat Sparkz, this 9–piece band’s horn heavy and funk driven live show combines original grooves with medleys of classic hip-hop, b-boy and funk breaks spiced with jaw-dropping lyrical acrobatics. Their music combine lost classic sounds from the golden age of hip-hop, with soul, jazz and reggae influences. The Mouse Outfit’s eclectic style is tinged with some extremely tight jazz musicianship from an extremely talented band, giving their hip-hop a very old-school yet fresh vibe, making this collective a favourite of festivals and clubs throughout the UK.
“A slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats. The smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk and reggae influences… some of Britain’s most promising emcees” (UK Hip Hop).
