• ‘One of the UK’s best festivals’

  • Kryptik (Scotland)

    Paisley-based emcee, Kryptik, started out as a beatboxer and graffiti artist, performing at local events in his early teens. This naturally transitioned into production in 2006, before heading on to study Sound Engineering and carving out a reputation as a Drum ‘n’ Bass DJ and events manager in Glasgow.

    His focus turned to rap in 2011 and within his first year, was booked to perform at the Solar Eclipse festival in Australia. He released his debut album, ‘Necessary Evil’, in 2015 and went on to form the group Delivery Room, who supported a range of high profile acts including The Four Owls, Ocean Wisdom, Skinnyman and even The Sugarhill Gang.

    In 2019 he was nominated for a Scottish Alternative Music Award and since then, has accrued many more accolades and airplay globally. The covid hiatus seen him re-emerge hungrier than ever; performing alongside the likes of Fly Anakin, Marlowe and RA the Ruggedman.

    Attracting critical acclaim with recent singles, ‘Ayahuasca’ and ‘Sinner’; Kryptik kicked off 2024 with his latest release, ‘Roses N Daisies’. A deeply emotive track which has seen support from The National, BBC Introducing, SAMA Top 10, Resonate “Artist of the Week “ and British Airways in-flight entertainment playlist, “Next Big Thing” by Tina Edwards.

    Now counting Public Enemy’s Chuck D among his supporters; Kryptik continues to turn heads within the music industry, with regular appearances on national radio and showcasing Scottish rap internationally at festivals such as New Skool Rules (NL), Future Echoes (SE) and Focus Wales.

    With a wide range of influences, his sound is diverse and energetic with passionate and authentic lyrics. He is a natural performing artist and leaves a memorable impression wherever he goes.
