As a live Entity, the five strong Revolutionary Minds expertly provide rich, upbeat, hypnotic dub rhythms behind Benjamin’s beloved vocal and lyrical mastery. Amongst these backing vocals are supplied by Amy True, an artist in her own right she is fast becoming one of the most influential and talked about personalities in the UK Hip Hop scene, being equally formidable in both her ability to sing, and her ability to deliver fast paced gritty lyricism. Revolutionary Minds as a body of work tackles the indigestible topic of the world we live in today, political & economic corruption, global warming, rampant racism, fascist patriarchy…unfortunately we could go on & on.
Amid this chaos though Revolutionary Minds, both band and album, are the soundtrack for the modern revolutionist; it will make you feel empowered, hopeful, galvanised to make a difference and make you dance; it’s a dub thing.
