3Peat (Manitoba, Canada)

3Peat are an exciting Hip-Hop project out of Manitoba, Canada, and are showcasing at FOCUS Wales 2018 as one of the BreakOut West festival’s seven selections this year, identifying 3Peat as one of the most exciting emerging acts in Western Canada. 3PEAT's Steve, E.GG and Dill The Giant form a triangle offence of rap styles and influences. The trio grew up in Winnipeg. With Steve’s background as a DJ, E.GG’s roots in breakdancing and Dill’s work with the Prestigious Deviants, the group naturally came together at hip hop events and became fast friends. There is a strong sense of East Coast legends like Pete Rock and Nas felt in the production and content produced by 3PEAT, mixed with a bounce reminiscent of Southern hip hop. The group recorded a song together and quickly blossomed into writing enough music to perform a short live set. After their first show the eclectic nature of the Winnipeg music scene stepped in. From opening for rap acts like Blackalicious and T.I, to sharing the bill with hardcore bands the group began to attract an organic following. With 30+ live shows under their belt and no presence online, 3PEAT rented a studio space, bought the necessary equipment with the money saved from gigs and self-recorded their debut EP, 3PEAT. That project was debuted to a sold-out crowd at The Goodwill Social Club and earned them Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Best Hip Hop Artist >>>>> 3Peat are showcasing at 9:40pm on Friday 11th May at Set The Bar, and 7:30pm on Saturday 12th May at Atomic (formerly Rewind).
