The best thing to come out of Cornwall since... Tin

Edinburgh 2013, two rather glum looking Cornish men handed a flyer to Rhys Darby. They were serious rappers, but someone put them in the comedy festival! Intrigued, Rhys went to see their show...4 times. What he had discovered was a duo of talented musicians creating music on a casiotone and a show that has you dancing in the aisles.

"the skill with which this pair manage to wring every speck of musicality from their Casiotone keyboard. Combine that with an ipod nano and a drum machine and the result is pure genius.They are incomparable to any other act I have seen. They are weird, wonderful, and make you wish you could go dancing with them." *****(Edinburgh Spotlight)

Hedluv + Passman are the originators of casio rap, a genre where lyrics are laid over simple homemade beats. They have wowed crowds at Glastonbury and Edinburgh festivals with their witty observations and insane dance moves. They were also surprised to discover that they had become massive in Brazil. Now it’s New Zealand’s turn.

"I haven't seen this much talent since The Conchords and even then I never saw that much talent." - Murray Hewitt.
