We're just a Tribe in a field of Traps! ... But mainly TRIBE because we want to join together to start a new revolution in music (which we hope others will feel a part of too) ? TRAPFIELD TRIBE !
Were there other names you toyed with?
No, and it?s here to stay. TFT on the dot.
Which artists in the scene inspire you?
This question is a hard one because we all have many different artists that we look up to and are inspired by daily. We enjoy many styles of music so it?s hard to narrow down ? but.. our favourite mainstream artists are:
Stormzy, Skepta, Eminem, Nadia Rose, Lady Leshurr and JME.
We have been particularly inspired by some of the northern based grime artists over the past year.
How would you describe your sound?
Funky Rap Dance Grime. H-Y-P-E.
The Tribe know how to take the audience on a musical adventure by using different styles of tracks, with different BPM. The Tribe have a great connection on stage and are full of excitement and passion. Their gigs have been described as ?Slick and Controlled Madness?.
Meister brings energy and hype, he use his powerful voice to add drama and character to the Tribe?s music. Trapz, the ?sinister grime kid?, uses his bassy lows to add depth and he keeps the Tribe grounded. Trickz completes the trio, sharp and feisty she holds her own, using her voice to entice the audience, reeling them in and creating suspense to then drop flows on some next level beats.
We rap about things that have happened in our lives that have inspired us, we create stories, we are artists. We?ve all been through bad times and experiences but we need to celebrate getting out of those situations and not glorify having to go through it. We hope that other people will relate to some of it and that it might give them confidence and encouragement to get out of their own ?bad place?.
What is the group?s greatest achievement so far?
Performing at festivals for the first time, getting over 200k views on YouTube after only a few months and the first time we heard our music being played on national radio have all been great but we all agree our greatest achievement was performing our tracks live the very FIRST time and actually seeing people dance and bop their heads to music that we had written having started from nothing.
The Tribe are proud of what we have achieved on our own in under a year . Amazeballs really!
If you could live one day as another artist who would it be and why?
