BLACK JOSH - Black Josh, as he's known to his parents and also non-PC individuals who seek to distinguish him from other Josh's, started out life in Manchester in a cliche tough estate where people do their washing in front of the house on a spinning umbrella style contraption. The rapper founded the prestigious Ape Cult at a mere 15 years old after standing apart from his peer group while some one else picked numbers. He is also a member of Cult of The Damned and Levelz. His interests now include string theory, and in particular the age old question: "how long is a piece of one?" He likes to do the raps... He does the raps to new school, old school, 90's-esque boom bap, whatever the backdrop... he does the raps. Josh is currently tragically gripped by a chronic cannabis dependency which he seems to have no intention of battling, so we just let him get on with it.
JOE PUBLIK - The UK MC and producer has spent the last few years carving a niche for himself on a scene that is increasingly populated by soundalikes and dodgy clones.
Rumour has it, people said he didn’t “look like an emcee” so Maybe he chose the name Joe Publik as a way of breaking the general conceptions of how lyricists are viewed in suburban Britain! Or it could just be that Joe is his actual name and he couldn’t think of anything better......
JPDL + Yogi Beats have been working within the south west music scene for the past 10 years. Fast paced, dynamic and overwhelmingly engaging.
