Juice Aleem
Long regarded as one of the UKs finest and most distinctive MCs, this Birmingham native has been responsible for laying some of the scene’s foundations whilst continuing to create music which pushes the art form light years ahead of the curve. Rocking stages since the early 90s, Juice first came to public attention as the original MC to sign to legendary UK hip hop imprint Big Dada, cutting the Luke Vibert produced 12” Misanthropic  in 1997 under the moniker AlphaPrhyme. Over the next ten years this would be followed by a string of LPs released on the label including the album Permanament(2000) with the group Gamma as well as Equilibrium (1999), Understanding (2002) and Universally Dirty (2006) with the group New Flesh. Boasting collaborations with Roots Manuva, Beans of Anti Pop Consortium and Gift of Gab from Blackalicious, New Flesh would achieve high critical acclaim for the unique blend of Hip Hop, Dance hall, Soca and 2 step infused in their experimental sonic voyages.
