2010 is looking better by the minute. With Hit Club putting out both bands debut singles and the two likely sharing similar fanbases, Is Tropical and Egyptian Hip Hop have teamed up to create one of the most exciting looking line-ups of the new year. They’re doing some dates by themselves too, which means that Glasgow is pretty much the last stop where you can catch this unique two-for-the-price-of-one offer.
What’s more, they’ve even managed to give you a reason to get down to the venue early, with a promise for the first 20 people to each venue to recieve a free tour only CD featuring rarities and unheard tracks. Anyway, here are the dates:
