Jay Electronica is something of a rap myth and legend. Over the years he’s produced for Nas, signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation, and collaborated with the likes of MF DOOM, Travis Scott, Khruangbin and James Blake. 

After more than 13 years and a string of singles and mixtapes, the New Orleans-born rapper finally released his debut full-length record in March 2020, “a mystical, distinctive work that nearly lives up to all the lore surrounding the rapper” (Pitchfork). 

‘A Written Testimony’ distills Jay Electronica’s cerebral lyricism, singular delivery and profound spiritualism into “a biblical album for biblical times, with enough human flaws to make it imperfect” (CLASH), and features appearances from Jay Z, The-Dream and Travis Scott.  

This epochal performance is set to send shockwaves throughout Bristol, an unmissable moment for hip–hop fans across the city. 

We regret that this show has been cancelled. All ticket holders are being contacted and refunds will be issued from the point of purchase.

Goya Gumbani

Born to an English-Jamaican mother and Guyanese-South American father in Brooklyn – NY, Goya’s relocation to South London in his teens opened a new world of possibilities.

Operating within various collectives throughout the city, Goya’s decade-long development as an artist and producer reached a breakthrough when he released his debut self-produced EP ‘Morta & More Doves’; a dedication to his sister who passed away in 2018.

Despite his transatlantic upbringing, the flavour of Goya’s work is rooted in NYC hip-hop storytelling. He was recently named in the NME 100 list of 2021 & ID’s one to watch and also performed two songs in session for COLORS in Berlin.
