The Mouse Outfit are a live eight piece eclectic hip hop act from Manchester who produce a slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats. Influenced by a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk, reggae and classic hip hop breaks, and laced with lyrics from some of Britain’s most promising emcees, this is conscious British hip hop at its very best.
Their live show features various guest emcee’s but is glued together by Dr Syntax, an emcee famed in his own right as a solo artist as well as a peripheral member of the mighty Foreign Beggars. It is an epic journey that continually builds in tempo and momentum fusing classic jump up themes and hip hop medleys with thumping funk basslines and classic breaks.
Having previously supported the likes of Cinematic Orchestra, Chali 2na and Souls of Mischief, the last few years have seen the outfit take their new live set to many of the UK’s leading festivals including Boomtown, Greenman, Shambala, Bestival, Glastonbury, Soundwave and Outlook where they were received with critical acclaim and hailed as the exciting future of UK hip hop.
