Rupert has been on our radars for some time now and is an artist that we have always wanted to see perform in Manchester, so we gone got him for Go Dumb! An independent Hip Hop MC hailing from London with incredible flow & lyricism, initially known to us as Rup (pronounced Roop), he released the classic debut ‘Rup on Zebra’ in 2007 on the Zebra Traffic label. For his second seriously dope album ‘Just Woke Up’, released in 2009, he changed his rap name to Rupert which also happens to be his real name. He has a brand new project due to drop this Spring and we can’t wait for Rupert and Steve Clear to bring their heavy live show to Kraak Gallery!

Up next, two of Manchester’s finest turntablist DJ’s bring their four deck extravaganza to the party – Hot Vimto. DJ’s g-kut and Danny Drive Thru are making huge waves as producers right now, having both released records on the brilliant Mind on Fire label in the past year or so. Hot Vimto is an opportunity for these two Jedi minds to combine and create a deadly musical concoction using their own beats, samples and scratches and mixing with well known and obscure Hip Hop dance floor bubblers. This collab was made for the Go Dumb! Sound system fo’ sho’.

Another DJ pairing from Manchester, JGB (Just Good Beats) features Jim ‘Bane’ Spratling and Jez Cowley, two DJ’s of the highest calibre who know exactly how to turn a party out. With a heavy focus on Hip Hop but eclectic tastes and a depth of music knowledge, we know that we can expect a monumental debut from this duo.

Plus the Go Dumb! residents will be on hand with everyone’s favourite host Dr Syntax to keep the vibe right all night.

If all that isn’t enough, we have a VERY SPECIAL SECRET GUEST who will be making an appearance. It all somewhat depends on circumstances, but we might be able to drop this info on Twitter or Facebook – keep your eyes peeled. Alternatively, it may just happen unannounced. Either way, don’t sleep on this months Go Dumb!
