Biography

Brought up in Warwickshire and sustained by music from his youth, its plain to see why MC Trafic has created such an established style, recreating human experience and imagery with his well-timed lyrics. Originally audibly affected by rappers like Eminem and Plan B, it took Trafic only 15 years of existence before he scrawled down his first full Hip-hop track “Split Personality”. The unknowingly given motivation and drive from those first few years absorbed in Hip-hop still exude from Mr Trafic today, he is energetic, enthusiastic and a little bit enigmatic in his performance, and has been since his first time jumping on a mic.

Moving to Bristol in 2010 and seeing other home-grown MCs (you know who you are!) do their thing across the Bristol scene, working alongside the original DJ Cantle, gave Trafic more reason than salt and pepper to “push it”. He adjusted his working, living and social situations to accommodate more free time to do what he loved: making music and creating good vibes all around.

Playing at any chance he got, from acoustic sets at open mic nights, to booked gigs and impromptu fill-ins. Eternally grateful for the opportunity, experience and support his was gaining, MC Trafic was already building ideas of collaborating with or mentoring other acts into the scene. Little did he know a like-minded Modify Perspective was thinking the same (about Trafic), and in Jan 2013 Trafic was brought into the Liquifyah collaboration. After displaying his effervescent personality, compelling and timely lyrics, and ability to make a crowd get involved in the atmosphere he creates, Trafic was dubbed the newest resident MC for Liquifyah.

The pinnacle of Trafic’s career to date has been his weekend at Nozstock 2013. “Talk about right place right time…” he says, and he was right. Initially a 2 hour set with Octo-Pi, Trafic found himself spitting over the finely played sets of 3 DJs in total, including playing for a 2,500 strong crowd on the Sunday, immersing himself. Since then, he has continued working with Octo-Pi, Modify Perspective, Despicable Youth, Range & Kable and Twitchee Cordz creating albums, eps, radio shows (thanks to Bristol Sounds), and original productions which plainly showcase the collective talents of these guys. Adding to that Trafic has now performed with underground D’n’B legends like Nicky Blackmarket, Hybrid Minds, Jakes & LoKo bringing only a style he can to the mix, all the time appreciating the underground scene.

One to definitely watch, Trafic is literally bubbling under the surface: a human dynamo, with a scholar’s vocabulary and the audacity of a school-boy. Guaranteed to get one and all (including your nan!) up on their feet and skanking the night (and morning) away. Consistently appreciative and urging more from the DJs he plays with, signature lines like “drop the drum and bass and let the place get manic”; “Naughty” and “I’m the best of the best, with an ‘s’ on my chest!” make it easy to see how much fun and frolicking there is to grab at any night he’s musically involved with. Plus, he’s a real nice guy ☺
