Return of the Bastards, also known as ROTB, is an up-and-coming hip hop collective from Singapore on a mission to demonstrate what happens when heart and soul are at the core of rap music.
The group, comprising 10 rappers, singers and producers, got their start on an Instagram series called Freeverse Wednesday—a competition among themselves to write and deliver their best bars over popular melodies. Going beyond simply developing their musical talent, ROTB also conceptualises and executes their own music videos.
What sets ROTB apart in the Singapore rap scene is the collective’s impeccable chemistry. This allows the group to push their creativity to its limits. By being their own worst critiques, the group constantly strives towards improvement and never lets themselves grow complacent.
Through their thoughtful lyrics, versatility and group cohesion, the boys manage to seamlessly blend the sounds of two eras of hip hop. ROTB is a group with immense potential to blaze a trail for the new age of homegrown music by going completely against the grain.
The Cosmic Owls
The Cosmic Owls is a group of friends and musicians alike who share a deep passion for music and spreading good vibes. All well versed in their instruments, this gathering of birds (or rather, friends) is sure to have you swaying with the music and singing their praises throughout the night.
