BRAND NEW MUSIC FROM SOUTH COAST UK EMCEE – JOE PUBLIK
Rumour has it they said he didn’t “look like an emcee” for so long he chose the name Joe Publik…. Or it could be that Joe is his actual name and he couldn’t think of anything better.Joe Publik is an upcoming artist from the South Coast, UK. In recent years, he’s made a name for himself as part of various outfits playing more UK shows than we care to mention; Boomtown and Beatherder festival in Clitheroe being a couple, along with bookings at Hootananny’s and Brixton Jamm.Now finishing up his debut LP: Stubborn Vectis, he is aiming to combine his musical influences with the humble yet hectic heritage he comes from.
During the years of performing, he’s been going back to what got him into making music in the first place HIP HOP. Sticking to the essence of sampled chops and dirty drums he can vent his thoughts, frustrations and love of music to.Raised on Doggystyle, Black Sunday and The Score; he thought Hip Hop was exclusively American until he discovered Countryman by Skitz at the age of eighteen and started writing bars. Some of his main influences include Guru, Tribe, Mos Def, Dilla, J5, Abdominal, Common, Pharcyde, Dabbla, Phi Life Cypher, Chester P and Jehst. His debut LP is due for release this year on Rustik Records. The album features a host of artists and musicians from Hip Hop’s thriving community here in the UK! Mostly people he’s met along the way, with the likes of Verb T, Res One (Split Prophets) Scorzayzee, Chillman and Lazy Habits to name a few.
