Bisc1We'd like to introduce you to Queens-based emcee & graphic artist Bisc1. A native of Massachusetts by way of Connecticut, Bisc1 moved to NYC 10 years ago and quickly made a name for himself DJ'ing at clubs, distributing mixtapes, and in graffiti circles. Besides being an emcee about to drop his debut album, Bisc1 is also an accomplished graphic artist.

He's done cover art, designed promotional materials and spearheaded art direction for artists such as Aesop Rock, The Perceptionists, C-Rayz-Walz, Murs, El-P, and others. His art has been featured in several magazines and art house coffee table books and in galleries, such as Danny Simmon's Rush Arts Gallery.

Bisc1 will be dropping his debut album, When Electric Night Falls, on Embedded Music in March. A true night owl, Bisc1 recorded the majority of WENF in the evening hours, not only because of the demands of his day job as a graphic artist but also because this is when his creativity thrives. Check out the single "Turbulence" as well as the little YouTube clip.
