Athenian artist and producer Minas is the project of Cardiff-based James Minas. Raised in the NoFitState Circus by parents that were heavily involved in the 1980’s punk scene, Minas settled in Wales as a teenager and attended secondary school in the South Wales Valleys. The influence that his upbringing has had on the music he produces, as well as his interactive live performances is palpable. Mixing heavy punk elements with components of hip-hop and grime, Minas aims to create music that whips a crowd into a rage before concluding with an empowering sensation of hope, saturated in unapologetic brutal honesty.
