GRIEVES & BUDO (US)
Friday 06.07.12 - 15:45 - Cosmopol
Grieves have recently become part of the alternative hip hop label Rhymesayers, which Slug from Atmosphere was part of founding.
Listening to the 2011album Together/Apart, it is obvious that Grieves belongs in this company. Here you find social-realist hip hop, filled with substance abuse, domestic violence and sorry fates.
Budo’s organic production casts a pleasant light over this dark backdrop. The result is a humanistic hip hop sound filled with the pungent flavour of lived life.
Hip hop from a scarred soul with a story to tell – and a must for everyone who witnessed Atmosphere win over Roskilde Festival in 2011.
Label: Rhymesayers / Target Distribution
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
