Interview: On The Q&A Tip with The Remarkable 1

Psykhomantus: Before we start. Can you tell us who you are, what you do and tell us what you do?

The Remarkable 1: I call myself The Remarkable 1. I’ve been rockin’ the mic since the late 80’s with a Brighton crew called Deliverance… onto Hundredth Monkey & the Monkey Sons in the 2000’s…

I now MC alongside producer Crespo, the Fireball Flingaz & Sublime Wizardry.

Psykhomantus: When and how did you fall in love with Hip Hop?

The Remarkable 1: I fell in love with Hip Hop when I first heard Planet Rock blasting from a boombox in the school yard back in 1984, that spurred me on to be a B.Boy.

Psykhomantus: What inspires you to write your rhymes?

The Remarkable 1: I write when I feel I’ve got something to say… the breaks / music dictates the feel / pace of the content. Hip Hop has always been about self-expression for me, life changes & an artist changes with it!

Psykhomantus: Can you break it down for us, with who & what projects you’ve got going on at the moment?

The Remarkable 1: I’ve just released a limited edition 5 Track EP CD with Crespo :

A new video / single with the Fireball Flingaz called Survival is Key :


& a new 7” Vinyl single / video with Sublime Wizardry called Keep Livin’ featuring Exile @

Psykhomantus: What top 5 all time MC’s do you rate, US & UK?

The Remarkable 1: My top 5 US MC’s have got to be The Architects :

Grandmaster Caz

Melle Mel



Chuck D

My top 5 UK MC’s from the underground have got to be :


MC Mello’

Rage (Deliverance)

Bohze (II Tone Committee)

Gemini (Hardnoise) R.I.P

Psykhomantus: How has the rap game in the UK changed since you first started?

The Remarkable 1: Back in the day a crew would just have a white label 12” vinyl to promote to DJ’s to get heard.. then you’d put your own money into funding the release & perform all over Europe to fans of the UK sound.

It’s a different world nowadays, it’s all about MP3’s, social media, video’s, hits / likes & websites, networking to people on a global scale at the bush of a button.

I kinda prefer the old school in a way!

Psykhomantus: What’s been your most memorable performances & why?

The Remarkable 1: Supporting KRS1 with my crew Sublime Wizardry last year in Brighton & Public Enemy the year before were the biggest nights of my career. I’ve been a mad fan most of my life, so to get to open for them & hang out after with my heroes was a surreal & humble experience. I was blessed to get those gigs.

Psykhomantus: Can you name one song you wish you’d of written?

The Remarkable 1: Roots manuva’s Witness

Psykhomantus: Is there a rapper you feel should put the mic down?

The Remarkable 1: There are many MC’s I feel should put the mic down… but it’s live & let live in this world.. & the wackness just makes for better, stronger Hip Hop music!

Psykhomantus: Last question, what will we expect from you in the future?

The Remarkable 1: Fireball Flingaz are working on a new video / single & are gonna be dropping an independent 12” Vinyl / CD EP on Raging Beast Records in Jan 2015 :

Sublime Wizardry are working on a new video / single available Jan 2015 @
