"What a totally fantastic noise – Paradigm is my personal record of the week by a country mile” – Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music
Major Ruse are a hip hop influenced jazz trio with a rocky, punk edge, described by Tom Robinson as ‘a totally fantastic f***ing noise’. Armed with just a sax, a guitar and a drum kit, Major Ruse makes music that takes risks, pulls on heartstrings and makes you want to shake a leg! They take in everything from math rock to hip-hop, blend it up in jazz and fire it back out with groove and feeling.
Along the way they have played many festivals including Love Supreme, We Out Here and Manchester Jazz Festival and supported the likes of Oscar Jerome, The Blackbyrds and Blue Lab Beats as well as having their latest single played on BBC 6 Music and being invited to play live on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music show.
