What’s the point of keeping it real when alternate realities are so much more fun? For new hip-hop super-group, The Mighty Underdogs, our world is one of hyper-reality where vacationing monsters have gunfights. Nothing’s harder than that, man.
Alternative hip hop trio The Mighty Underdogs play their first UK date in support of their forthcoming debut album release ‘Droppin Science Fiction’. The Mighty Underdogs are Blackalicious’s Gift of Gab, fellow Quannum compatriot Lateef the Truth Speaker and Bay Area producer Headnodic. They are signed to the critically acclaimed Def Jux label home to Aesop Rock, Mr Lif, El-P and more!
Fresh off the October release of Junk Science's "Gran'dad's Nerve Tonic", Embedded Music and Definitive Jux present Baje One's "The Weightless EP". The six track solo effort will be distributed digitally, and will be available for FREE download via definitivejux.net.
2007 saw Aesop Rock (aka Ian Bavitz) deliver his full-length album ‘None Shall Pass’ on Definitive Jux to great critical acclaim. Now, the man Q Magazine noted as being “Lauded in alternative rap circles”, is back touring on UK soil for the first time in 3 years taking in dates in Brighton (29th January), London (30th January), Nottingham (31st January), Dublin (2nd February) and Edinburgh (4th February) respectively.
Out of the wreckage of a broken junk-bot, emerges unscathed, Cool Calm Pete. One third of the underground outfit Babbletron, Calm Pete is the one whose words come slower. The precision of slow flow may be lost on some, but to the big brain females out there, here comes trouble. His new album, ‘Lost’ is going to ring bells like Bob James on the first four bars of ‘Mardi Gras’.
