Infinite Livez (born 1972 in Bethnal Green, East London) is an MC and musician who studied at Chelsea Art College. His wide range of influences comes from such diverse sources as P-Funk, Surrealism and continental philosophy. His first album Bush Meat was released on Big Dada Records in 2004 to immediate critical acclaim in the UK and abroad. 2007 saw the release of his second album Art Brut fe de Yoot, also on Big Dada, and a collaborative project with the Swiss electro-jazz outfit, Stade. Recorded over a series of improvised sessions, it has been recognized as a unique achievement in both experimental hip-hop and wacky humor. The follow-up album to Art Brut fe de Yoot, entitled Morgan Freeman's Psychedelic Semen, was released in 2008. At the beginning of 2009, the live album Live at La Guinguette, again recorded with Stade and guest vocalist Joy Frempong, came out of a residency in Geneva. Infinite Livez has performed in the UK and all over Europe, including events such as Montreux Jazz, the North Sea Jazz Festival and The Sonar Festival. Besides Stade and Joy Frempong, Infinite has worked with a wide range of other producers and musicians including David Murray, Jahcoozi, Nils Petter Molvar, Elliott Sharp and Kid Acne. He has supported artists such as Kool Keith, Anti Pop Consortium, MF Doom and Mulatu Astatke. As a visual artist, Infinite Livez has also worked on a variety of other projects, like making comic books, animations, prints and illustrations (for magazines such as Hip Hop Connection and The Wire). In July 2009, Infinite had his first solo exhibition, Salvador Dali Was Half Bengali at Pebbledash Gallery in London where he presented a series of madly surrealist silkscreens referencing the aesthetics of old-school comics, Japanese woodcuts and Hans Bellmer. In September 2009, he took part in the group show 7 Styles for 7 Brothers at Archipelago Art, Sheffield. Recently, Infinite launched Glorious Mono, his own weekly 1 hour radio show on Herbstradio 99.1 FM in Berlin.
