1 More Thing Podcast #013: Harry Shotta

A journey into the unique and inspiring life of a world record breaking MC

For our latest deep and meaningful conversation in the world of bass music 1 More Thing welcomes a record breaking barsmith… Harry Shotta.

Renowned for his turbo-charged double-time lyrical craftmanship, and his infectious enthusiasm and positive attitude, Harry has been devouring hip-hop since the age of 6 and describes himself as a lifelong student of rap culture.

Still just as inspired by the music today, Harry has been at the forefront of UK MC culture since he broke through in the mid 2000s. Bringing his hip-hop roots to drum & bass, his CV is a litany of trailblazing projects both as a solo artist and as a key member of iconic outfits such as The Uncontrollablez, SASASAS and his most recent project Road Block.

Wrapping up our trilogy of MC-focused interviews to mark the recent 50 year hip-hop celebrations in NYC last month, Harry sits down with Dave Columbo Jenkins to chat about his roots and upbringing,  his love for collaborations, the legacy and influence of the late, great Skibadee and so much more.

Available on all podcast platforms, and also via YouTube below, this is a super inspiring conversation that provides a rare insight into the life of a disciplined artist who’s devoted their life to their craft and set incredible benchmarks for the scene. Enjoy!
