  • 3. BIOGRAPHY RAW CALIBRE Over the past 30 years Manchester (UK) has gained a notorious reputation for contributing controversial artists to the world of Music, from The Smiths and Oasis to Joy Division and The Happy Mondays. A city famed for it’s industrial roots and rich musical heritage but plagued with gangland violence and criminality, the “no nonsense” attitude of Manchester has always managed to keep audiences intrigued and captivated. Fast forward to 2015 and Manchester is still firmly on the musical map and widely respected as a city known for spawning genre defining acts to the world of bass music and hip-hop with internationally renowned artists such as Zed Bias, Dub Phizix, Virus Syndicate, DRS and Shotty Horroh. Enter Raw Calibre, the newest edition to Manchester’s under- ground Hip-hop and bass legacy. Made up of MC’s Guillotine Mack, Mic Beef and Christov, the trio have firm sights on making their mark on the world stage. The group were born in north of the city, in the underbelly of Manchester in 2013, after Guillotine Mack was released from jail. It was during Mack’s time in jail that he was inspired to write music and vent his frustrations through creative, thought provoking lyrics in the imitable style of a true Mancunian. Firm friends and fellow MC’s Mic Beef and Christov reconnected with Mack upon his release from jail and the trio began to work relentlessly in the studio, day and night, perfecting their craft and bringing their stories of social commentary and street struggle to life. Raw Calibre was born. Their debut release The Hierarchy EP was inspired by the conviction of Guillotine Mack and the helpless situation he found himself in. “During my time in jail I finally realised where someone like me sits in the hierarchy of society”. Following this ‘Surrender to the Outcome’, the trios recently released debut album, combines the group’s tenacity with ubiquitous undertones of their trademark bassy beats. From rock to hip-hop, grime to dance, the album hosts a dynamic paradigm of musical tricks and treats. Production comes from notorious bass music producer MRK1 whose heart thumping bass and infectious melodies pave a platform for Raw Calibre to unleash on the music industry. 1

  • 16. PRESS PRESS RELEASE For immediate release RAW CALIBRE’S DEBUT ALBUM WILL MAKE YOU ‘SURRENDER TO THE OUTCOME’ Manchester, UK: The highly anticipated debut album from Manchester grime trio Raw Calibre was released on Friday 29th January 2016, titled ‘Surrender to the Outcome’. A list of 17 songs completes the album, all of which have been produced by some of the industry’s biggest talents, such as dubstep/bass producer MRK1 as well as Liam Tempest Hawkins, to add high quality sounds to the Manchester group’s lyrical creations. ‘Do The Dance’, released as a teaser single for the album, features as one of the first tracks and builds the mood for the multitude of musical treats that follow. Packed with songs in a concoction of genres, the album is a mixed bag of personalities; combine this with a ubiquitous undertone of grimy beats that span the entire album and anyone looking for a fresh soundtrack for 2016 will be pleasantly surprised. The Raw Calibre threesome, MCs Guillotine Mack, Mic Beef and Christov, formed in 2013 through their friendship and a shared love for UK grime, and were signed to the Waxman Music label in November 2014. The group has since released EP ‘The Hierarchy’ and forged a fan base throughout the UK and US, with industry critics labelling them “The newest edition to Manchester’s underground Hip-Hop and bass legacy”. Following cult hit ‘Madman’ from their ‘The Hierarchy’ EP, Raw Calibre’s hard hitting lyrics and catchy riffs are an emerging signature sound - making ‘Surrender to the Outcome’ irresistible, with tracks unlike any that have been heard before. Effortlessly switching from rock to hip-hop, dance to grime, the Raw Calibre chaps are certainly proving that they’ve got plenty to offer and, if the supporting videos for each single are anything like the cheeky ‘Do the Dance’ ditty, there’s plenty to watch out for in 2016. The album is currently available for pre-order on iTunes and will be released for general download on various music sharing sites from 29th January 2016.
