The group’s extensive touring has seen them perform and collaborate with some of the biggest names in the scene including Macklemore, Rudimental, MF Doom, Dizzee Rascal, Lethal Bizzle, Example, De La Soul, Wu Tang Clan, Wiley, KRS One, Four Owls, Goldie, Sugarhill Gang and Chase and Status to name (drop) but a few.
During the 2021 Covid lockdowns The Scribes worked with The Get Down Records for the limited 7” clear vinyl “Stir Crazy/Haunted House Party”, before starting 2022 by signing with huge international agency Stimulus Management.
Joining an incredible roster including Snoop Dogg, Nas, DJ Premier, Redman, Cardi B and Busta Rhymes, the group are currently touring across the UK, becoming known as one of the most talented artists on the scene with a genuinely unique sound backed up by a polished and proven live show that simply has to be seen to be believed.
