VisionobiVisionobi is one of the scene’s brightest talents. Immersed in drum and bass from an early age, it is no surprise that this Rogue Jedi's expressive and dynamic approach has gained him the respect of many of his peers and enabled him to tour Europe extensively.
Since first picking up a microphone, he has hosted for the likes of Metalheadz, Hospital, Ram, Dispatch, Critical, Shogun, Spearhead, Symmetry, UKF, Drum&BassArena, Exit, Soul:ution, CIA, FabricLive, Soul:vent, as well as a plethora of festival brands and established promoters, whilst regularly hosting shows on the prestigious Rinse FM and internationally renowned D&BTV.
2015 saw his first official release on Dispatch Recordings, whilst 2016 has seen his vocals showcased on Metalheadz & Siren Audio. The future looks bright with releases on Metalheadz, Dispatch & Horizons imminent and Cyberfunk & Shogun potentially coming to fruition.
A man of many concepts, Visionobi’s most talked about project to date is his “Under The Influence” track and video. With the array of track names making up a 64-bar verse, Visionobi managed to create something personal but relevant to the whole scene, whilst highlighting his dexterity as a lyrics man.
Moving on from this, the conceptually obsessed MC started “Picturesque Music”. The idea of the “label” was to push vocal artists from the D&B & Hip Hop scenes to new realms within their creativity; challenging them to craft a piece of music from a simple image. So far all the music has been put out via youtube and facebook for free, but the future of Picturesque will be to move forward as an official label.
Since launching Picturesque, Visionobi has been itching to get back in to the promotional game. Partnering up with Andy from Sine, together they crafted the brand "Rogue Elements". Two forces collide, taking you on an intergalactic journey through the organic realms of Drum & Bass. Bound by a mutual respect and love for the culture, Rogue Elements promises to deliver a vibrant and unique evening of all things Drum & Bass. The launch night is on the 26th May 2017 at Brixton Jamm and promises to be something quite special.
Visionobi established himself during his time as a student in Southampton, quickly becoming the MC of choice for the most distinguished promoters within the city. He also promoted events such as Wax, Raygun Youth and Release, helping to establish a very credible scene on the South Coast for a number of years.
Born in London, Visionobi has since returned to the capital, where his intelligent and spirited approach to writing shows how he is one of the most unique MC’s in Drum & Bass. Incorporating Jungle, Hip Hop and Garage influences into his sets, expect high energy and honest lyrical content.
Since hosting for Wilkinson through 2013 & 2014 and winning ‘Best Newcomer MC’ at the 2013 Drum&BassArena Awards, Visionobi has established himself as one of the respected MC’s within the deeper realms of Drum & Bass. His versatility and hardworking ethic has seen demand for bookings increase as he continues to hone his technique.
