Formed by Chini and Defty in South Manchester, The Mouse Outfit cut their teeth as a live band for a hop hop open mic night called In The Loop. It was at these events that the connections were formed to create 2013’s debut album Escape Music.
A verified UK hip hop classic, this album gained The Mouse Outfit a reputation for nurturing local talent and bringing them to the attention of a wider audience. Tried and tested on the festival circuit, and highly respected as the UK’s premiere live hip hop band, their growing reputation caught the attention of the BBC, who have consistently promoted their music.
Their second album Step Steadier (2015) cemented their stature, making the top ten of ABC News’ albums of the year, whilst on their Remixed album (2016) they collaborated with internationally acclaimed producers, including Dub Phizix, Tall Black Guy and DJ Vadim.
These kind of accolades helped the band reach an international audience which has allowed them to tour in over 14 countries across Europe and Asia over the last three years.
