Space Dolphin are a hip hop, improvisation outfit from Leeds UK, with aims to unite people together through a shared love of live music.
Born from an appreciation of groove and improvisation, Space Dolphin have been playing up and down the UK, collaborating with a plethora of talented musicians and MC's expanding their sound, ensuring each performance is as unique and bespoke as the tastes of each collaborative member. Think 90’s boombap beats, jive ass bass, Tom Waits-esque guitar noodling with a sprinkling of Herbie Hancock for good measure.
Space Dolphin are a band for stages of all sizes, from small personal gigs hosted in their homes to playing the main stage at Eden Festival 2019. If you go to see them, expect positive energy, good vibrations and an abundance of pocket.
