UK artist, MC and rapper Linguistics has built a name for himself by combining hip hop lyricism and skillful wordplay with boundless bass music energy.
Starting out as an MC back in Bristol in 2010, Linguistics became heavily involved with the drum & bass scene. His career took a sudden twist in 2012 when he started working with DJ and producer, Friction. The duo hit up some of the most prestigious festivals around the globe, including Glastonbury, GlobalGathering, Tomorrowland, Pukkelpop and South West Four.
Inspired by the likes of Jehst, Taskforce, Braintax and other key figures in the UK Hip-Hop scene, Linguistics was also writing and recording his own independently-released hip hop as well as lending his bars to D&B tunes by the likes of Spor, Icicle, Fourward & Joe Ford, receiving support from BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and UKF.
Linguistics released his solo EP project entitled Self-Medicated in 2018 which showed a new, more reflective direction for the young artist. Co-produced with childhood friend Charlie P (known for producing beats for Jorja Smith and Maverick Sabre amongst others), the EP saw Linguistics reveal a frank and honest personal insight into his life. This was followed up with a series of heavy-hitting releases across 2020 / 2021 with the legendary Shogun Audio, showcasing collaborations with the likes of Friction, Document One and GLXY.
