Jukebox – Jay Simian and The Midnight Society & BYG & Legitimate Anarchy
Jay Simian and The Midnight Society
Jay Simian is originally from Manchester but now lives in North Shields. His band is called The Midnight Society and features Chris Kinevil (guitarist) and Victor Baddoo (Baddz Beatz). Inspired by a wide range of sounds, they have been compared to the Stone Roses and N.W.A. and have previously featured on BBC Newcastle Introducing andLinkuptv.com. Their debut album was released Simian Child Vol 1 which is available on Itunes and Amazon. This year they blew people away with their live performance at Evo Emerging festival, expect the same at this event.
From Old School Hip Hop to a modern day Grime sound and inspired by the likes of Machine Gun Kelly, Tupac, Devlin, Mic Righteous and Skepta. Bishop Auckland’s BYG has performed at events around the UK and has a chilled but gritty style that really amplify his deep and meaningful lyrics.
A Darlington based rap/hip hop/trap/grime collective who are making waves in the North-East scene. Their frenetic performances of superbly produced and expertly crafted tunes are something that need to be seen to be believed.
