The Scribes Boombox is a brand new project born of multi-award winning act The Scribes. Consisting of lyricist/producer Ill Literate and beatbox maestros Pye & Minamus, the group’s unique talents have combined to make a trademark sound unlike any other, featuring a seamless blend of live instrumentation and sampling set against a block rocking backdrop of booming beatboxing.
Known for critically acclaimed performances full of energy, improvisation and off the cuff freestyling, the group have performed together at festivals across the UK, including such legendary stages as Glastonbury, Wireless, Isle Of Wight, WOMAD, Boomtown, Electric Picnic (Ireland), Urban In Ibiza, Latitude and Wilderness.
Having shared the stage with legends like MF DOOM, The Pharcyde, Pharoahe Monch, and GZA, the group’s roots are firmly planted in golden age hip hop sound. These boom bap sensibilities are blended flawlessly with some of the finest live beatboxing you’re ever likely to witness, resulting in a completely unforgettable live show that simply has to be seen to be believed.
The Scribes Boombox is a showcase of some of the most talented artists on the scene, with a genuinely unique sound backed up by a polished and proven live show, and proves yet again why the group are one of the most in demand touring acts in the UK today.
