On Hip Hop’s emergence in London, Bionic made his way through the ranks of other BBoy’s and Hip Hop artists to make his mark on, primarily, the Covent Garden Hip Hop scene with his trade mark Scorpion BBoy move. Moving from Hip Hop Jams to dancehall reggae sound systems, Bionic familiarized himself with chatting on the mic at dances and gaining new recognition on the dj circuit. After doing an initial show at Hammersmith Palais with Culture Mark, Bionic was invited by the late great Human Beat Box Sipho, to go on tour with Big Audio Dynamite (Mick Jones, Don Letts, Leo Williams, Greg Roberts and Dan Donovan) and appear on stage alongside Sipho and, the then, Roddy Rok later to be known as Rodney P.
That tour, and subsequent trips to New York, launched the London Posse. Bionic then moved his mic skills on from Hip Hop and on to the jungle scene, under the name Mad Dog, with heavy influence from the late great Stevie Hyper D. Bionic’s lyrical skills has influenced many to recognise that speaking to an audience doesn’t have to be veiled under another speech pattern but your own. MC’s were now finding their own voice not pretending to be other than themselves. Slammo gets to shoot the gift with this lyrical legend about his beginnings in the Hip Hop culture. From his experiences in the early days of Covent Garden to his present manifestation as an ambassador to positive thinking.
