TASKFORCE (MFTC 5 album tour)

Taskforce are one of the founding fathers of the UK Hip Hop movement. The group consists of Chester P, Farma G and Reemus and they’ve put out some of the finest UK Hip Hop releases to date, from Mark B produced New Mic Order, to their own series of Music From The Corner albums. They’re a group we’ve wanted to book for a long long time and we’re ecstatic to have them for our open SYR night.

One of the new breed of UK rappers, Dirty Dike has been making huge waves in the last couple of years with solid releases on High Focus records, garnering millions of YouTube plays and sold out shows all over the world.
