2000 Trees 2014: Dan Le Sac -v- Scroobius Pip

Dan Le Sac -v- Scroobius Pip

“Scroobius Pip’s most noted for his brilliant, brilliant opus “thou shalt always kill” but truth is his body of spoken word and written work is as impressive as anybody’s.” 

~ Outroversion 2011

Give Scroobius Pip a platform and he will make you think. Stick him on stage with Dan Le Sac and they’ll stir something in the very core of your being rendering you helpless against their war on repetitive generic music.

Last time DLCvSP were at 2000 Trees, they headlined the Friday night and it was mammoth. The atmosphere was as good as any i’d seen at any festival, now I don’t do dancing but I’ll be f-d if me and everyone in that field wasn’t getting down to every beat for their entire set.

That was in 2011. At the time they’d taken some time off from recording and touring and Scroob was gearing up for the release of his solo album “distraction pieceswhich turned out to be a masterpiece, he toured relentlessly with that playing anywhere you can imagine with dj sets thrown in anywhere that needed one for the night.

Towards the end of last year saw the duo return with their most “commercially successful” release to date “Repent, Replenish, Repeat“. The album is bookended by two standout tracks STUNNER and You Will See Me and inbetween is the form you come to expect- inspirational words, I can’t use words like ‘banging’ so will say intelligent and electic beatary.

Only a fool would miss this.
