Hector Bizerk is an experimental hip-hop group from Scotland comprising drummer Audrey Tait and rapper Louie. The duo have built a solid reputation and growing fan base in Britain's live music circuit since they formed in 2011. Initially, Hector Bizerk's live show consisted of merely drums and vocals and worked as a unique selling point in garnering support for their syncopated rhythmic rap combination.
In 2012 Hector Bizerk first entered the festival circuit and bolstered their sound for outdoor shows. Fraser Sneddon (of Rio Callahan) joined the band as bassist and Jennifer Muir (of The Miss's) on synth and additional percussion. That summer saw the newly expanded quartet play at BBC Introducing stage at T In The Park and The Solus Tent at The Wickerman Festival among other Scottish festival appearances. Coverage of their first performance at T In The Park was broadcast on BBC television's festival highlights of 2012.
In 2013 Hector had established a reputation as an accomplished festival band and were invited to play at almost every Scottish festival including unprecedented return to T In The Park, this time they were selected to play on Tennents T-Break Stage. That summer also saw Hector appear at Wickerman Festival, Insider Festival, Go North, Eden, Doune The Rabbit Hole, Audio Soup, Live at Troon as well as headlining Oran Mor as part of Glasgow's West End Festival.
In 2013 front man Louie became the first Scottish emcee to play at T In The Park twice and extended his unblemished rap battle record to twelve victories with a win over England's Chris Leese. He now has a record of 14 victories and no defeats.
Hector Bizerk have since shared the stage with Wu Tang Clan, Alt-J, MF DOOM, EPMD, Immortal Technique and Jurassic 5 among other support slots.Continue reading at Wikipedia... Wikipedia content provided under the terms of the Creative Commons BY-SA license
