MC BOMMA or BLU BOMMA is an MC who has been around for a while but is only just starting to come to the forefront of the D’n’B scene, regularly performing at events across the UK and Europe. He has performed alongside various artists during his career and is now firmly establishing himself as a crowd favourite, with his catchy bars and flow. He is a versatile MC, able to chat fast or slow, with different but distinctive and original styles.
A little known fact is that he also co-wrote the legendary Pendulum smash hit, “Tarantula”, working in the studio alongside the likes of Pendulum, DJ Fresh and of course, the Black Tarantula himself.
MC $PYDA is a “legendary” name within the DnB/Jungle scene but started out as a dancehall MC in the early 80’s, which is where he built up his distinctive reggae style of MC’ing.
His first D&B release ‘Mo Fire’ by Bad Company and The Rawhill Crew got him on many people’s radars and soon he was making tracks with the likes of DJ Fresh, Benny Page, Matrix & Futurebound and Aquasky. But it was his guest vocal and the use of his alias ‘Black Tarantula’ that got him noticed by the mainstream when he appeared with Pendulum on their debut album ‘Hold Your Colour’.
Also known as the ‘Black Tarantula’, he has performed at just about every major event, in the UK and the international scene.
