Linguistics is a South London born and raised MC/recording artist. He began writing lyrics over garage/grime aged 15 after seeing ‘Lord of the Mics’. Inspired by the likes of Jehst, Taskforce and other UK Hip-Hop veterans he began writing and recording his own music.
In 2010, living in Bristol, he became heavily involved in the local D&B scene. He quickly made a name for himself performing across the UK with DJ’s including Nero, Flux Pavilion, Netsky, Kamo & Krooked, Wilkinson, TC, Sigma, Rockwell, Koan Sound, Delta Heavy & many more.
In 2012 Linguistics work and career as an MC took off when he was picked up by Friction, the voice of BBC Radio 1’s Official D&B Show, to be his MC. Later that year he was voted ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Drum&BassArena Awards.
