The Mouse Outfit
The Mouse Outfit are a live eight piece eclectic hip-hop act from Manchester who produce a slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats. Influenced by a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk, reggae and classic hip-hop breaks and laced with lyrics from some of Britain’s most promising emcees, this is conscious British hip-hop at its very best.
2013 saw the self release of their début album "Escape music" and a series of high quality music videos which not only showcases their promise as some of the UK’s leading hip hop producers, but also their skills as highly talented film-makers.
Their live show features various guest MCs but is glued together by Dr Syntax, an emcee famed in his own right as a solo artist as well as a peripheral member of the mighty Foreign Beggars. It is an epic journey that continually builds in tempo and momentum fusing classic jump up themes and hip hop medleys with thumping funk bass lines and classic breaks.
Having previously supported the likes of Cinematic Orchestra, Chali 2na and Souls of Mischief, the summer of 2013 saw the Outfit take their new live set to many of the UK’s leading festivals including Boomtown, Greenman, Shambala, Bestival and Glastonbury where they were received with critical acclaim and hailed as the exciting future of UK hip hop.
