SUPA & Da Kryptonites are a high octane award winning 10 Piece, mad grime/rudy ska band from Scotland. Spending the last few years honing their noise touring the length of the UK With a James B funk flavour, rub a dubbed with Reggae vibes, licks of Drum & Bass…echoes of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Swing & Soul. SuPa create an infectious energy with a second to none stage performance, from crowd favourite..laying down the infamous “Krypto-Hop” for all to stick their arse in its own postcode. Or the call & return chants that would leave the avid Human Traffic viewer scrambling to shout ‘Noice waaaan brother’. Now go pack that in tight, with a bright & tasty horn section, a chameleon of a rhythm section, effortless soulful vocals, a rudeboy emcee and there is no wonder they say ‘Keep It SuPa!’
