“The human race is fighting a losing battle. There is too much that has gone on before. There is so many evils in the world that are constant and that are resonated so much, there is no way in hell we are going to make it all change... However, I would rather fight the battle!” Tapestry’s vocal tapestry’s make him a must have for a British Hip Hop stylee Q and A.
The top thing that Brutal Artistry does is stay true to the roots. So there was none of this, 'lets just sell out to students and pissheads'… It was a hip hop night. They wanted a hip hop crowd. And man did they get one. It seems nowadays the common acceptance is that real hip hop doesn't sell. Many DJs are forced to put on R&B or house nights in order to really make some money.
After a complete pisstake of a train journey (the conductor was kind enough as to make us feel like we were on a fucking Blackpool tour bus - ‘If you look to your left you will see the overflowing riverbank with the waves steadily rising towards us’). The perfect distraction from my frustration was a reet ol’ chinwag with Huddersfield born ‘n’ bred (should be a Sir…) Spida Lee.
Spida Lee boasts on his MySpace profile that he's "got that mad old skool 94-96 sound" and it's with a deep sense of ambivalence that I report that he's telling the gospel truth. Hailing from Huddersfield, Spida's take on the street experience is so deeply influenced by his heroes - Black Moon and the Wu being obvious reference points - that it threatens to overwhelm his own perspective.
Fresh on the back of Asaviour letting us know that Huddersfield can kick it as hard as the rest of the country we now see the talents of Spida Lee emerging from the Northern city. He’s been doing his things for ten years now and is part of the Practical Headz crew.
