Biography

Created through the partnership of Bristol producer DJ Bunjy and MC Joe Peng, these two veterans of the jungle scene earned their stripes rocking the biggest sessions through the 90’s rave scene. As they’ve grown, their musical direction took a course that led them to seek out some of Bristol’s finest musicians. What started as a studio project became the acclaimed live act - Laid Blak.

MC Joe Peng shares front of stage with the vocal rocket launcher that is Flex.He has the voice and stage presence to grab any audience and devour them. The live set is centred in urban reggae, but touches on jazz, funk, soul and hip-hop. No one ever forgets a Laid Blak performance; the charisma of the vocalists and the musical dexterity of the band leave a lasting impression. This is dance music aimed at getting you moving. The ‘good vibes’ shine through all the songs and they always steal the show at festivals, one review noting them as ‘the essential festival band’.

In Laid Blak’s journey so far they have supported heavyweights like Desmond Dekker, Nitin Sawhney, Julian Marley, John Legend and Luciano. They have lit up Glastonbury, Ashton Court Festival, In The City Urban events nationally and set the people dancing at Carnivals all over the UK.

    Cuidá dum pé de milho, Que demora na semente Meu pai disse meu filho, Noite fria, tempo quente Lambada de serpente A traição me enfeitiçou Quem tem amor ausente Já viveu a minha dor No chão da minha terra, Um lamento de corrente Um grão de pé de guerra, Pra colher dente por dente. Lambada de serpente A traição me enfeitiçou Quem tem amor ausente Já viveu a minha dor. Cuidá dum pé de milho, Que demora na semente Meu pai disse meu filho, Noite fria, tempo quente Lambada de serpente A traição me enfeitiçou Quem tem amor ausente Já viveu a minha dor No chão da minha terra, Um lamento de corrente Um grão de pé de guerra, Pra colher dente por dente.

    Seriously underrated. The Chasing Shadows remix doesn't really deserve the credit it gets, original's top notch.
