St James presents a Hip Hop night of epic proportions, featuring legendary Rodney P, with Hip Hop Producer Skitz and Dr Syntax, already known to Guernsey audiences from his performances with The Mouse Outfit at the Vale Earth Fair a few years ago. Performing with Dr Syntax is producer Pete Cannon, together the two will bring their own brand of irreverent, often comedic hip hop (with a touch of bass music and jungle for good measure). Support by local outfit Asylum Seekas.
RODNEY P & SKITZ
Rodney P is widely acknowledged as the Godfather of UK Rap.

Following the international success of London Posse, Rodney P has enjoyed one of the most esteemed and perpetual careers in UK hip hop to date. Recognised as Britain’s most eligible candidate for Hip-Hop ambassador; indeed for many his name is synonymous with UK Hip-Hop.Skitz gained recognition as a homegrown Hip Hop producer fusing the rawness of UK emcees with solid production and distinctively jamaican influenced basslines. His first album Countryman won Hip Hop album of the year and catapaulted rappers such as Est’elle, Roots Manuva and Skinnyman into the limelight.
DR SYNTAX & PETE CANNON
Dr Syntax first appeared as a regular collaborator and guest with the legendary Foreign Beggars crew, featuring on their first three albums and performing with them at countless live shows worldwide. He embarked on a solo path in 2007, releasing his acclaimed debut ‘Self Taught’, beginning a prolific run of releases over the next decade.
