Consensus came to fruition in 2011 with a vested interest in music and all things related. Boombap hip-hop, grime, spoken word and live band freestyle are just some of his favourites! He has been making beats with an edge, performing live shows across Europe, NY, Canada and Africa, and has also had the chance to perform with UK hip hop verterans like Mystro and Ty, and Moses Boyd and Theon Cross of the UK Jazz scene. In addition he has opened for the likes of Mos Def, Obie Trice, Jedi Mind Tricks, Necro, El da Sensei, Jeru the Damaja and Big Daddy Kane (with C.O.T.I. in Switzerland).
Consensus and his 2017 album ConCERNed bridges the gap between music and particle physics and has been covered in the media on London Live Television, BBC Radio, Ethiopia’s EBC, The Voice Newspaper and Influential blogs. Through this project he has also given talks & shows at the world famous Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, Fermilab, Ontario Science Centre and prestigious institutes such as John Hopkin’s University (US), Cambridge and Oxford University in the UK.
Most recently Consensus embarked on a US Tour at the end of 2018 to promote ConCERNed, as well as his most recent project, 2018 EP Total ReCon. Following on from the success of ConCERNed, Consensus has been featured on FT.com, BBC World Service and BBC Radio 1 Xtra performing and talking about the project and how particle physics can teach lessons through hip hop.
