Jam Packed Presents: Paper Tiger & Almatic

— The Kuumba Centre
Cosmic Hip Hop & Space Jazz
price: Headfirst Tickets


Back from a lengthy summer Jam Packed return this Autumn for another juicy run of events.

Paper Tiger began in a bedroom in suburban Wolverhampton: music-obsessed teenagers comparing notes on African funk compilations, Japanese animation, soundsystem culture, apocalyptic space-rap and Miles Davis’ little-known collaboration with Sting.

Now based in Leeds, between them they have heaps of musical experience and knowledge from which to draw – a seamless blend of electronic wizardry and good old-fashioned jazz chops; squiggly space-synths and fidgety funk; Beats, Rhymes And Life. Their live shows have garnered praise from people across the high-low art spectrum (from Mary-Anne Hobbs to the Daily Star) and seen them share stages with Amon Tobin, Quantic, The Bug, Jaga Jazzist, Nightmares On Wax, Bonobo, Alice Russell, Rustie, Dam Funk, Daedelus and Gaslamp Killer to name a few.

Almatic is the latest incarnation of some of Bristol's finest musicians getting together and creating some incredibly juicy hip hop.

With members from The Inexplicables, Solana and The Carny Villains to name but a few, they have a tight sound and even tighter rhymes and we're very excited to see what they can do with us.
