Woodburner is proud to present:
THE LUNAR WAVES
The Lunar Waves are a live Scottish hip hop group, formed by Mikel Krumins (Abdominal Showmen, Kyon and Dyems), Thomas MacGregor (Abdominal Showmen, AGM, parlé ), DJ Lyley (Scratch / B Sides), Joseph Croft (BearDriver, parlé), Sean Monro (The B.B.B.B) and Ashley Glynne (The Vivos).
Following Krumin’s first independent release “Overnight” with Kyon and Dyems, recorded by The Co-Optimists (Parc en Ciel) and released on Crystal Wish Records, Krumins began work on his first solo L.P. Set for release in 2018. When Mikel returned to London a live band was required to perform the tracks and The Lunar Waves were born.
Krumins and MacGregor have performed in various guises, outfits and countries over the past 12 years. Primarily as part of The Abdominal Showmen where they won the PRS Unsigned and U.K. Touring Act awards which lead to releases with FOPP records and London label Breaking Bread.
Other featured releases include an appearance on Capitol 1212’s Raw and Disorder EP alongside Donald D, Grandmaster Caz and Profisee.
Performance highlights include sold out shows at London’s Borderline, De La Soul’s after party at Edinburgh’s Bongo Club, Highlight Arts Festival in Beirut, Lebanon, Mostar Arts and Music Festival at Abrasevic, Bosnia Herzegovina (in the middle of a humungous lighting storm), appearances on KCSS Radio in Turlock, California + many many more.
On the 29th of June The Lunar Waves will present their debut 7” vinyl recorded at Love Buzz Productions in Bermondsey and will be joined on the Woodburner stage by some very special guests.
“...would put most major label hip hop acts to shame.” “White boy Parliament, fresh off the Lothian Mothership, buzzing on soap bar and fronted by a gangly Snoop Dogg alike" The List
"......a sense of old-timey melancholy." JUMBO RECORDS
"These guys are actually really good." NORMAN RECORDS
"This isn’t really like anything I’ve heard before and I’m guessing the same will go for you... This record sounds a bit to me like what I’d imagine sitting between a fruit machine, a radio and some Scottish lads doing rap karaoke while fucked on Strongbow” N.M.E
