Laid Blak represent the quintessential Bristol music story, formed from the partnership of Bristol producer DJ Bunjy and MC Joe Peng, two legends of the Jungle scene, the pair spent the 90s performing for the era defining party brands and popping up on all the essential tape packs.
Building on their successful partnership, the pair began to look for a new musical direction and like many of Bristol’s most loved musical exports, they drew inspiration from the city, which of course has Reggae and Soundsystem culture at its core. What began as a studio project, found them seeking out some of the most impressive musicians the city has to offer and Laid Blak was formed.
On their journey to becoming one of Bristol’s most exciting and loved live bands, the duo brought in an array of talented musicians to complement and augment their ideas. Including Lupo on bass, Stacy on drums, Scotty on the guitar, Ras on keys and Tita on supporting vocals.
