For those of you who maybe unfamiliar with the name Blasfima Sinna, let us introduce you to one of Edinburgh’s leading emcee’s who has just released his brand new EP ‘Capital Letters 2‘. He has a talent which can’t be denied and creativity which is extremely hard to find, as well as being a diverse and focused artist. He has been active in the Scottish Hip-Hop scene since 1997 and as a turntablist under the name DJ U-Turn qualified for numerous DMC Championships and even winning the Scottish DMC Championships in 2005. He went on to deejay on the same bill as numerous acts including DJ Premier, People Under The Stairs, DJ Cash Money, Lord Finesse, Lord Jazz and DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest.
In 2004 he adopted the name Blasfima Sinna and started to pen rhymes and eventually recorded a demo tape that ended up with him working with Dark Rumours aka Madhat and Riddlah. This is where the tempo changed and before long everyone was recognizing his skill and ability, as he even took to making beats. In 2006 Madhat, Riddlah and Blasfima Sinna created a new act called The Evil Residents where he started doing a string live shows and eventually signed with Edinburgh label MCF Records. In 2009 he released two projects ‘The Capital Letters EP‘ and the ‘Quarantine‘ album, before leaving the label in 2010 and independently releasing ‘The Medici Project‘ produced by Nasty P.
Last year saw Blasfima Sinna set up his own label You Sonix Records and released the album ‘12 Time 4 Mind‘ which was well received by real rap fans. Known for creating unique styles to his rhymes and experimenting in different genres, this open minded artist has cemented himself in Scottish Rap history.
