Triptych 06: Kool Keith & Kutmasta Kurt + guests

Wednesday 26th April

The Lemon Tree

12 + 1.50 b/fee

Doors Open: 8pm

One of hip-hops most prolific and innovative talents, erudite rapid-fire rapper Kool Keiths resum reads like a historic account of the genre: hes a founder member of legendary mid-80s Bronx trailblazers Ultramagnetic MCs; hes the man whose pseudonyms include Dr Octagon, Black Elvis, Dr Dooom (and about a dozen others); hes the man whose celebrated collaborations include Beck, the Prodigy, DJ Shadow and Dan the Automator (Gorillaz).

Proliferant West Coast hip-hop hero and ardent midas Kutmasta Kurt has cast his platinum, wax scratching magic on the Beastie Boys, Dilated Peoples, Blackalicious and Mos Def.

But it's his abiding alliance with incalculable rap star Kool Keith for which he's most acclaimed. It's a cardinal partnership that has proved ceaselessly inventive since their first collaborations over ten years ago: they worked together on Keith's Dr Octagon, Black Elvis and Dr Dooom projects amongst others, and it's with Keith that Kurt is set to ignite Triptych.

Also a daredevil remixer, DJ and solo producer, Kurt released the ace Redneck Games epistle last year. His striking armory of livid beats and clamorous samples and resilient rhythms continue to define him as one of the underground's most incredible, insightful and in-demand figures.
