Kool Keith
Kool Keith
Kool Keith seems unstuck in time, oblivious to geography, brilliantly mixed unflinchingly grim details with surreal, fantastical tangents. He was an original member of the Ultramagnetic MCs, appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (2015) and is well-known for the classic album "Dr. Octagon" created with friend, Dan The Automator. He's from the Bronx, but belongs to far-reaching astral dimensions and where many of his contemporaries have become legacy acts or revivalists, Keith continues to originate and perfect his wild style. He drinks with MF DOOM in dusty London basement and recruits legendary squadrons of fellow travelers including Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Bumpy Knuckles, Boston pioneer Ed O.G., Slug from Atmosphere, and Vallejo legend Mac Mall to appear on his new album "Feature Magnetic," released September 16, 2016.

About the Album: Feature Magnetic
Kool Keith's new album "Feature Magnetic," released Sept. 16 on Mello Music Group, is the latest bizarre transformative hip hop odyssey. In a world filled with Cheesecake rappers, one man, Kool Keith, has assembled a phenomenal team to bring you madness. Critics are calling it sensational. Free association, sci-fi, sextastic, horrorcore, Kool Keith invented it all. His newest excursion into rhyme finds a who's who of rappers holding it down alongside Keith. From Dirt Nasty to Slug, MF Doom to Bumpy Knuckles, Mac Mall to Ras Kass - the best to have ever done it spit hotter fire than even Dylan. Like butterscotch ice cream on your crotch or eating dead bok choy with Soldier Boy, you've got to think about it. Get cozy and sit inside the paragraph. This is "Feature Magnetic" Kool Keith's newest reality breaker.
Deca is a New York based rapper, producer and visual artist originally from Denver, CO. He has self-released five albums, and has gained a reputation for his meditative production, introspective lyricism, and raw, emotionally evocative themes.

Deca’s lyrics touch on universal truths that take us on an introspective journey through vivid physical and psychological landscapes. Dabbling in the spiritual and ephemeral, he navigates easily through classical literary tropes and mystical parables, presenting an allegory of our struggles with human existence. He lassos these otherworldly themes and drags them down to earth making them both transcendent and temporal.

As a true student of his genre and master of his craft, Deca produces beautiful harmonies, melodies and grooves, over which his lyrics soar in a self-contained dreamscape. Deeply personal and relatable, he delivers an autobiography hidden in his carefully crafted similes and metaphors giving a glimpse into the mind of a true artist.
Sudo Williams
Sudo Williams
Sudo is an out of left field, tongue in cheek, melody having cat that you wouldn't expect to have the kind of range he does, voice or content wise. there's songs vying for the attention of Tia & Tamara, to cats, to the not so black and white lives of those in the jim crow era and all the non sequitur's in between. through it all he keeps the same mantra 'live slow die old'
