Lowkey @ RICHMIX Shoreditch East London!~* 

Lowkey performs at Rich Mix

“One of the best lyricists in the Western Hemisphere”
Benjamin Zephaniah

On December 12th Rich Mix will finally play host to UK rapper, musician, poet, playwright Lowkey.

Rising to prominence at the age of 17 after proving victorious at a series of weekly open mic sessions in London’s Carnaby Street, the 23 year old (born Kareem Dennis) is proving himself to be a force within the UK Hip Hop battleground.

Intelligent, intricate rhymes with a political slant elevate the half English/Iraqi above his peers – his mixtape CD series ‘Key to the Game’ attracted much critical acclaim and a large dedicated fanbase. Using his versatility as a weapon he is a proud member of rap group Poisonous Poets – Lowkey states “On a skills basis, I feel they are the five best rappers in the country…and I’m another one in my view.” He also features within the lineup of indie supergroup Mongrel – alongside member s and ex-members of the Arctic Monkeys and Babyshambles.

With huge appearances at the Electric Proms, T in the Park, Glastonbury and the Sunrise Poetry Slam 2008 (where Lowkey was named the winner against 16 other poets) and with followers like Ms Dynamite, Benjamin Zephaniah, DJ Semtex and Latin-American underground lyricist and demigod Immortal Technique (with whom Lowkey collaborated with on this years’ ‘Voices of the Voiceless’)…Rich Mix is proud and excited to present Lowkey.
