Hiphop - Funk

The signature baritone and lyrical dexterity of Cardiff’s premier emcee Skunkadelic is instantly recognisable amidst the ever fertile soundscape of UK Hip-Hop.
Bearing a musical heritage shaped by the golden era of hip hop and rooted in his family domain of Nigeria, he channels raw passion, experience and ingenuity into every rhyme.

Following his debut album release ‘Musically Drifting’ Skunkadelic has racked up an impressive number of accolades including live shows alongside Talib Kweli, Chali 2na, The Pharcyde, Jehst, Rag n Bone Man, Blackalicious, Ugly Duckling, Jungle Brothers, Ocean Wisdom…. As well as collaborations with the likes of The Allergies, Mr Woodnote, Dr Syntax, TY, Sparkz, Truthos Mufasa, Abstract Soundz, Twogood, Unchained XL, Band Pres Llaregubb amongst a host of others. The hunger to create and share is the driving force that influences every move he makes. 2020 has seen is music really gain traction with heavy rotation from Lauren Lauverne (BBC6 music), Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales), Jo Wiley (BBC Radio 2) & Tom Robinson (BBC6 music)

Aside from solo work, Skunkadelic has a resident post at the helm of 9-piece monster funk collective Afro Cluster and has written, recorded and toured extensively with the group over the last decade. They’ve appeared at numerous high profile festivals and events including Glastonbury, Womad, Greenman, Boomtown & Festival Of Voice and toured alongside the likes of Ibibio Sound Machine, Craig Charles, Gilles Peterson and Hot 8 Brass Band.

Consistently sharing his creative journey, he’s honed his networking skills as a booking agent at both Cardiff’s ‘Starving Artists’ promo team and Liverpool’s ‘Fiesta Bombarda’ agency. He is also emerging as an educator, running a series of music/art workshops in schools and within his local community, demonstrating a dedication not only to artistic output but to the burgeoning industry and training that underpins it.

With a new EP in the works and a full album from Afro Cluster out in February, 2021 has been yet another productive year.
