Cadence Weapon is Rollie Pemerton's indie hip hop dream collage.Having toured with Liars and Japandroids on sold out tours already this year, Rollie's live show is a hypercharged, utterly captivating performance. Cadence Weapon's influences, while rooted in hip-hop, push traditional genre boundaries by incorporating elements of IDM, soul, disco and old school rap. The compositional complexity of his music combined with Pemberton's intelligent, thought-provoking lyrical prowess translates into one of the most memorable live shows around.
Pemberton has performed with Public Enemy, De La Soul, Mos Def, Questlove, Kool Keith and Lupe Fiasco and touredextensively with acts as diverse as Jurassic 5, Final Fantasy, Islands and Buck 65. He's played internationally renowned festivals such as Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Roskilde, Pitchfork Music Festival, Incubate and Germany's Splash! Festival. He's remixed Grimes, Roots Manuva, Chad VanGaalen, Kid Sister, Busdriver, Disco D and Stars and made acclaimed bootleg mixesof tracks by Ciara ("Oh") and Rick Ross/Simian Mobile Disco ("Hustlin' Hustler"). He inked deals with labels Epitaph and Big Dada. Most impressively, this was before he reached age of majority.
