Peter deGraft-Johnson (PJ) AKA The Repeat Beat Poet is a poet whose work is placed firmly in the culture of Hop Hop.

He says "I capture and extend moments - of time, emotion, realisation - in the same way a deejay captures and extends a breakbeat, and in the same way the beat poets from which I take my name captured and extended single moments of thought in their writing."

He is also a film journalist (with bylines in TimeOut London and blogging regularly for the Prince Charles Cinema), podcaster (co-hosting the British Podcast Award nominates Lunar Poetry Podcast), and assistant director of the Chelmsford Film Festival.
