Album of The Month: JAGGED TOOTH CROOK by THE MOUSE OUTFIT
Written by Lucia on January 6, 2019
2018 has seen The Mouse Outfit release their third album ‘Jagged Tooth Crook’, and tour the UK and Europe with a brand new lineup. Part hip hop production team / part live band / part ever growing collective of musicians and vocalists based in Manchester, UK – The Mouse Outfit continue to bring their brand of jazz influenced boom bap to the masses.
Since founding members Chini and Defty met at a rehearsal room in an old warehouse almost a decade ago, they have worked with over 85 musicians, producers and vocalists in the studio and on the stage under The Mouse Outfit banner. To this day they have remained independent and retained their DIY hip hop sensibilities, self releasing three studio albums and an album of remixes over the last five years.
Current members: Chini (keys, production), Defty (bass, production), Deese (drums, vocals, production), Phil Ratcliffe (guitar), Dubbul O (vocals), Ellis Meade (vocals) Berry Blacc (vocals)
With former members Sparkz, Pitch 92 and Dr Syntax currently pursuing solo careers, the new look Mouse Outfit released their new album ‘Jagged Tooth Crook’ in 2018, with Metrodome and Deese joining the production team for the first time and Pitch 92 stamping his signature on two tracks. Featuring standout contributions from rising star IAMDDB alongside a host of Manchester talent.
