REP: Paper TigerBio
Much like the output of the band, the show will be a diverse selection of the best hip-hop, electronic and uncategorisable beat music from the past, present and future – think genre-bending radio in the vein of Mary Anne Hobbs, John Peel and Gilles Peterson. There’ll be guest mixes from some of the scene’s finest up and comers, plus music from some of Leeds’ best bands and beatmakers.
