The countdown is officially on for the return of live, current music at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne with the acclaimed duo Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip! on Wednesday, April 30.
Both respected solo artists in their own right, the duo originally teamed up after getting to know each other better while working a Christmas season at a HMV in Essex.
Through the sharing of Myspace links and remixes, they decided to collaborate, resulting in the acclaimed political dance track Thou Shalt Always Kill.
The success of the single continued the partnership and creation of successful albums: Angles and The Logic of Chance.
Both albums entered the top 40 with huge critical acclaim, whilst still shunning any of the major label overtures that continued to follow and instead releasing on the independent Sunday Best Recordings.
With a sound that has never attempted to ‘fit in,’ Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip continue to receive a huge amount of radio play and attention.
With their latest album, Repent Replenish Repeat, the duo continue to create their own unique blend of hip-hop and electronic beats with a mixture of spoken, sung and rapped lyrics.
As a socially and politically aware team, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip create music that echo the brilliance of Gil Scott-Heron’s writing. Uncut magazine called their latest album ‘powerful as it is invigorating,’ and their live shows are just as stunning.
This event marks the first of the Eastbourne Goes Live initiative which is presented in conjunction with Brighton based promoters Melting Vinyl.
