    About Signkid

    I’m Signkid. I’m the UK’s first and only deaf music producer, writer and performer to have pioneered and developed a unique aesthetic by integrating and adapting British Sign language (BSL) signing into a visually based language suited specifically for live hip-hop music performance. I have subsequently evolved this approach into music video production by simultaneously overlays a hearing rapper onto my distinctive BSL performance.

    I released my first 7-track EP “Music Is The Message” in August 2017. This had been in development since November 2015, prompted by my first solo live performance as part of a Deaf Rave event at Fabric Nightclub. One of the videos for the EP – “Newsflash” (feat Mr Off Key) was nominated for Best Artistic Short Film by Deaffest 2017, the UK’s leading LADbible x Smirnoff documentary, BBC Breakfast News, Deaf-led film and arts festival.

    The EP, music videos, and many live performances over the past two years, including Shuffle, Liberty, Amersham Arms, Greenwich & Docklands International Festival, Cinema 888, Deaf Rave, Wireless and the DH Ensemble’s “Freshly Scratched” event at BAC. BBC coverage and featured blogs “Hearing Like Me”, “PRS Magazine” and “LADbible.
