Technically, Syrup are a hip-hop group with unmistakable leanings towards soul and jazz. The group consists of an MC (Turt), a pianist/singer (C.Tappin) and a beatmaker (Twit One). Their music is rooted in the tradition of collectives like Native Tongues and Soulquarians, and they have come up with a pretty appropriate term to describe their sound, which is “cool bap”.
Twit, Turt and Tappin first met at a club in Bristol some years ago, where Twit played a DJ gig. They quickly became friends and have been working on music together ever since. In 2017 Twit brought Turt and Tappin over to Cologne to perform at the legendary Radio Love Love boat party. In the same year Summers Sons released “Undertones”, their first EP for Melting Pot Music, followed by “Uhuru” (2018) and “The Rain” (2019) and C.Tappin’s debut E“Ashes To Ashes” (2019).
