Prepare for The Reformation

One of the other groups to perform at Swn is North Waleian rappers Y Diwygiad (The Reformation). One of my favourite groups out of the Welsh speaking crew, although they also flip it and rap in English too. They’ve just sent over a copy of their new album but I’m currently kicking myself cos it arrived the day I moved house and now I can’t find the damned thing. Still I have heard a few tracks off it and I’m pretty confident it’s a killer. Below is a link to a programme that went out the other night on S4C (co-hosted by BBC Radio 1 presenter and Swn curator Huw Stephens) which follows them on a recent trip to LA where they recorded with Daedelus, who seems to have something of a Welsh fetish (and who can blame him). The new album drops this month so make sure you check that out.

They also performed at Daedalus’ album launch party alongside the likes of Flying Lotus and Gaslamp Killer. You can catch them at Swn Festival here in the Welsh capital alongside Metabeats, Chipmunk, Beatbox Fozzy and High Contrast on Saturday night at The Point in Cardiff Bay. Free to Swn wristband holders or £10 without.

The programme is all in Welsh but if you don’t speak the language, click on the owl symbol and it brings up English subtitles.
