Dr Syntax is an MC who has been obsessively writing rhymes since his teenage years.
At eighteen, he left his home town of Banbury, Oxfordshire, and spent about a decade moving around England, including stints in Brighton, London and Manchester.
As a hungry young MC, he hit every open mic and battle he could, eventually becoming an established and renowned artist in the UK hip hop scene.
In 2003, he featured on Foreign Beggars’ debut album, ‘Asylum Speakers’, and toured with them extensively over the next few years.
He then released his own acclaimed solo debut, ‘Self Taught’, and has remained prolific ever since.
In 2012, he teamed up with Mancunian hip hop band The Mouse Outfit, appearing on all of their albums and performing with them at countless venues and festivals across Europe.
Nowadays, he is most closely associated with producer Pete Cannon, with whom he has a string of collaborative releases including 2014’s ‘Killer Combo’, which featured guest appearances from UK rap luminaries Dirty Dike and Lunar C, and legendary Heiroglyphics member Del The Funky Homosapien.
