Instinct the Lyricist

(MC Vocals / Percussion / DJ)

First experience creating music yourself?

Instinct = Dusting off old 45 7inch records from Play, Spin, Turn The Page & Read Along kid books & lightin' up a baby scratch groove routine on my portable turntable at the end of my bed before I hit the double digits, then progressing to rippin' up all my mum & dads Aretha Franklin, Toots & The Maytals & Bob Marley & Peter Tosh records & told don't you'll wreck the needle, but the itch was just too strong not to scratch.

That song that will always lift you up?

Che Fu - Lightwork Resonates through the bellybutton into the soul earthing the flow in the toes like the wind blowing gently at your back and the sun shining warmly embracing your face, timeless

Musical goals?

To embrace the static of noise & then turn up the lyrical melodic juxtapositional flow of the most epic lit flux on a multidimensional plane where all existence resonates into the 13th harmonic shifting our vibe to an all time wayward shine intertwined with sounds seen by the inner eye woah next album here we come 😊
