Scroobius Pip

Pipped at the post…

Lyricist Scroobius Pip (left) is one half of the chart-topping hip-hop duo dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip. Going back a few years, the duo worked with Hastings film-maker Richard Heslop and local teens to make their ‘Get Better’ video in Lacuna Place and Queensbury House, Hastings. So far, sadly, the nearest they have got to playing a gig in Hastings will be Eastbourne’s Winter Gardens on Wednesday 30 April. Scroobius Pip writes in an honest and direct manner, leaving out the hedonistic and instead aiming for the raw and heavy. Helen Brown interviewed him about his approach to making music in the digital age.
