Church Street Hip Hop night comes back to Mad Hatters on the 14th of March.

Previous nights have included the likes of Kobi Onyame, Loki (whose interview was on of the most interesting on the site in 2013) and Damaged Goodz. The first run out of the Hip Hop night for 2014 sees a particularly strong line-up of established acts.

The bill includes Bigg Taj whose impressive array of support slots include GZA, Methodman & Redman, Immortal Technique and Grandmaster Flash. His approach is “rapid fire [with] off the wall rhythmic delivery and ability to produce more noises than a fully loaded Akai sampler”. Runner up in the 2009 UK beatbox championships, he joined with Louie (of Hector Bizerk)on the 2011 release ‘Paranoise’.

Bigg Taj is joined on the night by long standing collaborator, Spee Six Nine who has been on the scene for over ten years. His debut album ‘Army of Oneir?t=wwwinvernessg 21&l=as2&o=2&a=B00DQK5WI6 - Church Street Hip Hop returns‘ was followed up by EP ‘Verses’  with view to the duo releasing a long player this year.

Another couple of long term collaborators in Steg-G and The Freestyle Master also take to the stage alongside Def Concerto, with proceedings hosted by Brian Jamieson.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me via our Facebook page.
