3oB is a Melbourne-based beat-maker, vocalist and emcee. He is best known for his work in Agency Dub Collective and Organic Intalekt. He is a multi-instrumentalist with a long list of writing credits on over 9 releases from 2003-2013. He has collaborated with The Master, Krisdafari, Lotek, Sine, Ishu and The Bird.
His lyrical style is informed by early 90s US East Coast hip hoppers like KRS-ONE, Guru and Brand Nubian, as well as by the Jamaican dancehall toasting of Yellow Man, Tappa Zukie and Jr Gong.
3oB is a proponent of the rare DubHop style of beat-making that weaves sampled records from reggae, soul and funk with live instruments and dub effects. He has toured the east coast with ADC extensively over the last decade, from Wollongong to Coolum and Tathra to Tenterfield.
He will perform at Folk Rhythm and Life in 2014 in collaboration with long time friend and Agency Dub Engineer Malicine. In a set that incorporates lyrics and remixes of ADC tracks, plus a preview of his new music, 3oB seeks to eke out the common vibe between Dub and Hiphop. All this is brought to you with one mic, one MPC and one Space Echo.
