For DEAF this year, SweeTalk bring you the hiphop legend Steinski. Probably best known to a younger audience for his informed and engaging appearance on the outstanding documentary history of turntablism Scratch, Steinski first made his name in the early ’80s, dropping a highly influential series of cut ’n’ paste mixtapes alongside partner Double Dee. A massive influence on the likes of DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, Steinski has remained a constant presence in music since then, further cultivating a new audience by his association with Ninjatune, and through his wilful employment of hiphop to craft satirical politically-inspired pieces that issue a deft commentary on everything from the Gulf War to the assassination of JFK.
Maser has been a graffiti artist for over ten years working both home and abroad. He has worked in New York, Copenhagen, London, Holland, Belgium, Spain and Sweden. More recently Maser has focused on promoting the positive aspects of the graffiti culture to the Irish society. He is a member of Ireland’s premier graffiti crew the TDA Klann who are widely known for their unique and innovative style of writing.
