dark's underground group of the moment...

http://www.bluescholars.com/

they're a hip hop duo based in seattle, put out a cd in 2003 without major backing, recently re-released the cd in 2005 along the west coast, with a national distribution to follow this fall, and a second lp to be released in summer of 2006

emcee geologic and dj sabzi have been working toward their release for years now, and their cd touches on many things; from spirituality, the state of the music industry, the war overseas, domestic low and middle class living. things that i find i can identify with

emcee geologic's rhymes are exquisite, well constructed pieces of internal and multisyllable rhyme; excellent flow, worldplay, emotion, and content appear consistantly throughout the 11 track debut cd

dj sabzi is a turntablist with a rare style. he uses samples, and yet manages to construct beats that sound like an organic whole. his beats feature full melodies, lots of strings, piano, sometimes asian themed, all soulful



so, if you'd like to listen to some underground hip hop, nothing too risque, with a positive message and excellent execution, feel free to message me on aim, and i will send you a my 4 favorite songs from their debut cd

I like them a lot. I'm going to have to agree with everything Dark said.

It's not my usual music, but I will be listening to these guys for a while.

more like "support the label". you do realize that around 3% of the albums sales actually ever go to the artists. total ****ing ripoff. however, they do make most of their money by touring and merchandising.

this band i met once had a record deal, they said they got 50k sign on bonus(big whoopteedoo) which they used to buy a excursion and a trailer. but they got 500k to go out on a US tour. 100k for gear and the rest for them. smartly enough, they said each and every one of them only put 10k into stuff they wanted, and the rest into a savings account. last i heard they were going to use their combined money and purchase a nice sized house and what not.

so think twice when you say "support the artist" you want to support them? go see them live you assphony.

well,

1) they're not a signed group. hence my use of the word underground. the only way to get their cd is from their website, one of their shows, local shops and the occasion underground online store. in short, there is no label support, no advertising, and no publicity, beyond word of mouth

2)if you had read the link in my post you'd know that this is there first release, and that they made their cd on a desktop computer, not in a studio, and their "tours" consist of 4 car road trips up and down i-6 in washington, playing in small clubs and open mics in various towns, so i really can't catch one of there shows, can i?

3) small underground acts like this don't make a lot of money, they manage to pay their bills, and budget enough to press more cds to sell. they don't get played on any radio stations other than a few local channels, so the only way they get support is from word of mouth

so don't call me a phony if you don't read the information i provide. if you want to hate, then at least present an argument that isn't based on you being a dick

*CLIFF NOTES - read the information i give before you open your mouth with some hating bull*****

Re: dark's underground group of the moment...

and furthermore, this isn't some bass-drowned mtv ubertrash. this is significant, well written, well constructed rhyme. mainstream rappers don't have enough intelligence to make something like this, so shut the hell up

I'm with everything Dark said. Research a little or at least think some before you try to slam somebody.
