THE MOUSE OUTFIT : ’STEP STEADIER’ ALBUM LAUNCH
feat. SPARKZ, DR SYNTAX, TRUTHOS MUFASA, FOX, DUBBUL O, BLACK JOSH plus PETE CANNON DJ set.
UK based collective The Mouse Outfit are a Hip Hop production team and live band
from Manchester run by Chini, Pitch + Defty.
Their acclaimed debut album won UK hip hop album of the year 2013 (Wordplay Magazine) and was ranked in ABC News’ top 50 albums of 2013. Since the release of ‘Escape Music’ (which is now available on double vinyl) their profile has increased significantly, both within the UK and internationally. The album featured many of Manchester’s most talented MCs including Sparkz, Dr Syntax, Truthos Mufasa, Fox, Dubbul O and Black Josh. These MCs have been instrumental in the cities current hip hop resurgence, and will all be performing onstage in April. Their much anticipated follow up album, ‘Step Steadier’ is due for release in March 2015.
The Mouse Outfit is a 9 piece live band and production team centred around Chini (keys), Pitch (production/MPC) and Defty (bass). That originally started playing out in manchester years ago, you could fins them a night like Hit&Run and Intheloop, over the years they have worked with various MC's in the manchester scene, laying the beats for lyricists to flow over the top, eventually turning the impromptu live sets into extremely tight stage show. We recently caught up with the Mouse Outfit at there show in Brighton, and were massively impressed by the performance. The Mouse Outfit are the kind of band you can sing to in the shower, party to on a friday night, and kick back to on sunday morning, and we can't wait to see what they have in store for the new album.
