The Scribes are a multi-award winning hip hop act from Bristol whose unique talents have combined to make a trademark sound quite unlike any other, featuring a seamless blend of live instrumentation and sampling set against a backdrop of head nodding boom bap breaks.
Known for critically acclaimed performances full of energy, beatboxing, crowd participation and off the cuff freestyling, The Scribes have become festival favourites across the UK, regularly gracing the stage at Glastonbury, Latitude, Wilderness, Boomtown Fair, Urban In Ibiza, Shambala, Bearded Theory, Leopallooza and many more.
The group’s extensive touring has seen them perform and collaborate with some of the biggest names in the scene including Macklemore, Rudimental, MF Doom, Dizzee Rascal, Lethal Bizzle, Example, De La Soul, Wu Tang Clan, Wiley, KRS One, Four Owls, Goldie, Sugarhill Gang and Chase and Status to name (drop) but a few.
The Scribes were the first UK artist signed with US label Kamikazi Airlines, co-owned by Dizzy Dustin of legendary hip hop act Ugly Duckling, releasing “The Sky Is Falling” LP and “The Scribes Present Ill Literature” LP worldwide to critical acclaim.
This success garnered the group a sponsorship deal with ethical clothing company THTC alongside huge names like Ed Sheeran and Foreign Beggars, before being followed up with the “A Story All About How” LP and the apocalyptic EP “Mr Teatime & The End Of The World” on Reel Me Records, the latter being named winner of the UndergroundHH.com “Concept Album of The Year” award.
Since joining Quill Equipped Records in 2019 The Scribes have released the “Quill Equipped Villainy” LP and “Totem Trilogy Pt 1” EP, featuring an array of talent including Akil the MC from Jurassic 5, Dizzy Dustin from Ugly Duckling, MC Duke, TrueMendous and Leon Rhymes from Too Many T’s, winning the group further acclaim alongside regular air play on BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC Radio 6 Music.
During the 2021 Covid lockdowns The Scribes worked with The Get Down Records for the limited 7” clear vinyl “Stir Crazy/Haunted House Party”, before starting 2022 by signing with huge international agency Stimulus Management.
Joining an incredible roster including Snoop Dogg, Nas, DJ Premier, Redman, Cardi B and Busta Rhymes, the group are currently touring across the UK, becoming known as one of the most talented artists on the scene with a genuinely unique sound backed up by a polished and proven live show that simply has to be seen to be believed.
