And now dear listeners brace yourselves for the full on verbal assault of Razorrawks

About

 

Self proclaimed electronic punk rapper Razorrawks is unmistakably identified through his original delivery, regional dialect and Northern pride. With his machine gun flow, the Preston based lyricist combines inspired lyrics over well produced beats whilst drawing influence from all that surrounds him. Due to his eclectic approach comparisons have been made with the likes of John Cooper Clarke, Jamie T, Mark E Smith, Sleaford Mods and more.

The dissolution of his first group Residential (Boxer Records) in 2002 along with the death of his close friend resulted in a musical hiatus of several years - a time he spent furthering his music and creative approach. After falling further through the cracks of electronic music, songwriting and mediocre guitar skills, he landed slightly off centre of hip hop and punk and won't stop ranting.

As well as regular performances at his own Vocal Harem nights, 2016 and beyond has seen him supporting KRS One, Chali 2na, Krafty Kuts, B. Dolan, Dr Syntax & Pete Cannon, MC Tunes, Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling) & DJ Moneyshot, DJ Woody, John Power and more, as well as making his debut appearance at the Beatherder festival.

Unable to dilute certain facets of character alongside a refusal to deny his place within the world results in a welcome break within a genre where style over substance is often par for the course.

2016 saw the release of his well received debut album 'Rip Eat Prescription' - 2017/18 sees him back on the road and in the studio working on his next. Keep an ear out.

Razorrawks could happily be calling out the pretentious and the bullshit on a national level
