The Mouse Outfit are currently writing and recording with UK hip hop legend Dr Syntax, Bedos, Baba Israel, MC Presto and Sparkz. The Mouse Outfit have been dubbed ‘The UK’s Breakestra’ as their live show seamlessly blends original tunes with b-boy funk breaks and classic hip hop.
The Mouse Outfit have recently started guesting UK hip hop legend Dr Syntax on live performances. Having cut his teeth on tracks with Foreign Beggar’s on their debut album ‘Asylum Speakers’, Doc Synners soon gained a reputation as one of the UK’s most talented wordsmiths and charismatic performers.
His 2007 solo album Self Taught received widespread acclaim and was featured in Hip Hop Connection’s Top 100 Albums of the Year. With keen eyed social commentary, contemplative musings on life and straight up cold rhyming, Syntax has showcased his abilities all over the UK and further afield with performances at Glastonbury, Hip Hop Kemp in the Czech Republic and Splash Festival in Germany.
In addition to brand new tracks from forthcoming EPs, The Mouse Outfit and Dr Syntax live shows will feature material from his second album ‘Benny Huge’, available on Dented Records.
