So what’s Ushi been up to since he stopped promoting monthly and became a chef? Haven’t seen much of him but he seems to shitpost a lot and doesn’t update as far as often as he should.

Well he’s been working an antiquity, spirituality and mythologically inspired EP The 8th Circle, a hip hop theatre/puppetry collaboration retelling of George and the Dragon with Anzir Boodoo (also featuring the classical compositions of Kenzie Appell: ) and has gone and got a book about overcoming the most difficult year of his life published by Local Gems Poetry Press titled Litany Of Varied Experiences.

So for his 30th birthday he will share snippets from all of these projects while also formally launching Litany Of Varied Experiences.

There’ll also be the following guest performances:

Manchester’s own Camikaze and Cee Rellim bringing positive bars with a touch of da roads and deep concepts.

Halifax’s resident Punk Poet Keiron Higgins and author of The Punk With A Northern Soul will be waxing lyrical with some spoken word as only he can.

From London Town is hip hop heroine Wondr Womn aka Kid Wondr whose breathtaking bars and social entrepreneurship with The RecordShop make her a phenomena.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that from the planet Hixxlyvoom is the interstellar traveller The Captain of the Lost Waves who weaves theatre and music to life in each intricate moment.


So please come along, make merry, and buy the birthday boy a pint ?
