Making the breakthrough into the world of a respected d&b MC is no small task - yet SP:MC, aka Stewart Proctor, has managed to firmly establish himself as one of the busiest and most innovative on the circuit.
Acting as MC of choice for all artists pushing intelligent sound, SP frequently represents Shogun Audio thanks to extensive and ever-exciting work with head honcho, Friction.
SP was first recognised at GQ’s London Emcee Monthly Sessions after GQ heard one of his early mix-tapes. Hosting for labels as diverse as Metalheadz, Autonomic, Hospital, Renegade Hardware, Commercial Suicide, Bassbin, Quarantine, Digital Soundboy, Soul:R, Innerground and Valve, SP’s been in remarkably high demand since.
Citing GQ, Dynamite and Conrad as early influences, versatility & quality control are a guarantee when SP's in the building.
Hosting sets on a global scale, SP is coveted internationally - and as if worldwide tours weren’t enough, SP also began producing in 2005. Collaborations with Breakage set the standard, followed by tracks with fellow MC Verse; all receiving heavy rotation from the likes of Friction, Andy C, Goldie, Marky, Grooverider, Fabio, dBridge, Marcus Intalex, Doc Scott & Break.
He featured on Icicle's huge hit ‘Dreadnaught’ – the debut release from Icicle’s first LP for us – SP proves that he can lay down an infectious flow unlike any other.
From collaborating with Youngsta in 2010, to more recent tracks from 2011, such as ‘Hunted’ and ‘Oh My Gosh’ with LX One, SP:MC has truly built a name for himself throughout the years.
Now easily one of underground music’s premier hosts, SP:MC represents a sophisticated lyrical sound that’s hard to find elsewhere. Breaking expressive boundaries, it is no wonder that SP is MC of choice for the most admired and in-demand DJ’s worldwide and Shogun Audio’s number one hype man.
