Born Ina Barn was formed in the deepest depths of Britain’s south coast in 2006. Their unorthodox style of Hip-Hop crossed with Reggae, Ska, Swing, soul and pretty much any other genre to tickle the tonal taste buds makes them almost impossible to pigeonhole.
With their combination of drum breaks, clever sampling, heavyweight bass lines and purring guitar riffs, Born Ina Barn pumps energy into crowds of all ages. This sound effortlessly compliments the three MC’s who move between harmonic hooks, wordplay, rapid syllable flows and sometimes-edgy subject matter. The only rule with these boys is ‘If it feels right, PLAY IT!’
This free flowing attitude has earned Born Ina Barn support slots for the likes of The Dub Pistols, Fun Loving Criminals, Goldie Looking Chain and Aloe Blacc among others.
Along with performing in venues across the country, they have hit festivals such as The Boomtown Fair, Beach Break Festival and The Isle of Wight festival. They also hold down regular slots at Camp Bestival and The Bestival where this year (2012) they performed on the main stage between Roots Manuva & Rizzle kicks.
Considered a breath of fresh air it’s safe to say the future is looking bright for these emerging musical menaces. If you see them on a line up go check them out and you wont be disappointed.
