Who’s playing at Breakout Thursday, November 15th:


Dot Rotten is back. One of the most-tipped artists at the turn of the year, Karmageddon is the awesome return, delivering on the promise he showed on earlier releases such as Overload and Normal Human Being. A four-minute track that bursts through with a classic jungle beat, melded onto one of Dot’s most affecting vocals. Already a Hottest Record In The World on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show, it is set to re-establish Dot’s position in the vanguard of adventurous, mainstream music. Since the release of “Overload”, an A List record at Radio 1 and and a Top 20 hit, Dot has been fine tuning his album, now slated for early 2013. Always opinionated, Dot Rotten works at the edge of the mainstream, keeping a foot firmly planted in the worlds of originality and mainstream appeal.

Growing up in legendary Bow, east London’s musical melting pot and surrounded by grime luminaries, Rascals have emerged from the underground in the only way they know how; shining like uncut diamonds in chasm of MCs. They got their first slice of street success when they were just 12 and 13 with the debut smash New Era. With grime still in its infancy, Rascals had to earn their stripes like any other fledgling crew but since they linked with fellow east London native Ryan De La Cruz to unleash the gritty Jay-Z sampling Re-Introduce (which was taken from the download frenzy that was the Launch Mixtape), they signed to EMI & signed up the team’s newest member, singer/ MC 20 year-old Kay Willz. Like a robust fine wine, a vintage cheese or in terms more befitting to the camp, a sick pair of Jordans, RASCALS have matured over time and with hype still on their side they’re more than ready.

At just 19 years old singer/songwriter Tom Prior is fast becoming recognized as one of the UK’s up and coming musical talents with a zeal and tenacity to engage audiences from a variety of backgrounds. He would describe his influences, to be a mixture between Cold Play, Wretch 32, Plan B, and The Streets, with a combination as dynamic as that you know this guy is set to take the music industry by storm. Signed with SNR MANAGEMENT, The musical journey has progressed from strength to strength allowing him to perform at the Royal Albert Hall as well as Playing “Somerset House” supporting Katy B, Devlin, & Ms Dynamite In July.
