The last time GMF was in Devon was when he played at Hannah's which is part of the Seale Hayne University complex in Newton Abbot in 2010. If you missed him then, well you are in luck as he has been booked to play at the Exeter Phoenix Arts Centre on Sunday December 7th.
For those of you who DON'T know who this Hip Hop legend is, here's a brief overview....
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five fomented the musical revolution known as hip-hop. Theirs was a pioneering union between one DJ and five rapping MCs. Grandmaster Flash not only devised various techniques but also designed turntable and mixing equipment. Formed in the South Bronx, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five were one of the first rap posses, responsible for such masterpieces as ‘The Message’, ‘Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels of Steel’, and ‘White Lines’.
The combination of Grandmaster Flash’s turntable mastery and the Furious Five’s raps, which ranged from socially conscious to frivolously fun, made for a series of 12-inch records that forever altered the musical landscape.
For the mere sum of just £15 you can be in the same room as one of THE founders of the Hip Hop movement, imagine telling your grandkids that in 40 years time!
