FRIDAY DECEMBER 14TH, 2012
Dilated Peoples is an underground hip hop group that resides in California. They've achieved great fame in the underground hip hop community, although having had little mainstream success in the US, with the exception of the song "This Way," a 2004 collaboration with Kanye West. It reached the Top 40 of the UK Singles Chart with two tracks, "This Way" and "Worst Comes to Worst." Their members include DJ Babu (producer/DJ), Evidence (emcee-producer) and Rakaa Iriscience (emcee).
Dilated Peoples are affiliated with fellow West Coast hip hop group tha Alkaholiks. The Liks appear on The Platform on the track "Right On" and Expansion Team on "Heavy Rotation." The group also collaborated frequently with west coast emcees Defari and Amad Jamal (an Urban Umpires member) and helped to launch their careers. Defari made one appearance on each Dilated Peoples' album: "Ear Drums Pop (Remix)" on The Platform; "Defari Interlude" on Expansion Team; "Closed Session" on Neighborhood Watch; and "Olde English" on 20/20. Dilated Peoples also made multiple appearances on Defari's album Odds & Evens. Another Dilated associate is their long-time producer, the Alchemist, who produced five songs on The Platform, three songs on Expansion Team, four songs on Neighborhood Watch, and two songs on 20/20. Dilated Peoples was featured on a song on the Alchemists' 1st Infantry. Rakaa also made a guest appearance on the song "Trance Fat" on Looptroop's new album, Good Things.
GRiZ is a talented young DJ / producer from Michigan. A former member of LEAK, he now travels all across the USA and plays at festivals and collaborates with other upcoming DJ's such as Gramatik. His tracks include "Ill Type Moves", "Rock n' Roll" , "P B & J (Pretty Busted and Jank)" and a killer remix of Aerosmith's "Dream On".
Clockwork’s distinctive bass-heavy, big room sound has helped him gain support from the likes of Tiesto, Steve Angello, Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, and everyone in between. His DJ sets are always as high energy and innovative as his productions, helping earn him an upcoming international tour as well as a spot on the line-up at the 2011 Hard Haunted Mansion Festival. With 2011 emerged the unique, big-room sounds that define Clockwork, but it truly is just the beginning. With a prolific propensity to create, a progressive production style, and a genuine love for the performance, Clockwork’s future is looking bright.
Since the release of his 3rd Ep plus multiple remixes in less than a year, Nico Luminous has solidified himself as a rapidly up and coming name in the West Coast Bass music scene. Based in Los Angeles, his unique brand of "Glitch-a-delic Soul Whomp" melds sexy melodic Dubstep and bouncy Glitch Hop with organic elements holding down dance floors in a sensual pulse. An MC/Beatboxer as well as a Producer/DJ, Nico is the only artist today performing with a wireless effects and looper pedal belt that seamlessly incorporates into his DJ sets. Influences of Hip Hop,Dub, and Dancehall are laden throughout and the music has an overall positive uplifting vibe.
Debut album forthcoming on Alpha Pup Records.
