The Heat and Heat TV put together this 2011-2012 season recap that they played during the Championship celebration event at the era this past Monday. And for the soundbed to the video they used the very fitting track by Dangerflow called “The Crown”. A Great look for the band, and again, a great fit. Press play to relive the season. - the305.com


Why “watch the throne” when you can “wear the crown”? That’s precisely what Dangerflow would like their listeners to do. In anticipation of their full-length album release for “Win, Lose Or Die” they’re offering a free download of their second single. The vivid imagery and inspiring lyricism of “The Crown” will battle for your attention along with the dueling violin solos.

If your name’s Pimp C I’m going to expect you to rhyme about pimping, if your name’s C Murder I’m going to expect you to rhyme about murder, and if your name’s Dangerflow I’m going to expect you to, you know, flow dangerously. Thankfully the Miami crew, making their The DJBooth debut today, live up to their name and then some with new release The Crown. Producers Low Key and Miami Beat Wave (whom we know well) build a cinematically royal beat on Crown that begins with a sparse piano line and by the end has climaxed into a violin battle, all backed by Dangerflow’s diverse blend of live instrumentation. Vocally the group flip Jay-Z and Kanye’s command for the world to watch their throne, instead urging listeners to get up and do everything they can to grab that crown for themselves. It’s an attitude that also pervades the title of their upcoming album, Win, Lose or Die, set to hit our collective ear drums on November 15. Until then, I think we could all afford to live a little more dangerously (musically speaking of course).

In a city where mainstream hip-hop culture rules the airways, the guys in Dangerflow are striving to create a different type of vibe. This new local six-piece specializes in fashioning soulful, dance-oriented hip-hop grooves mixed with a dash of old-school Seventies free funk. Think of them as the Roots meet Ozomatli.

In less than a year, the group has built a loyal local following, and the hard work has paid off: Monday marks the beginning of their new weekly residency at Jazid. At the same time, the band is in the midst of recording its first EP and expanding its live appearances in Broward County. Their early success must be due, at least in part, to their relentless work ethic. The members meet for practice three nights a week at bohemian hangout Basil Restaurant in Coconut Grove.

The band, like many other local favorites, boasts a multicultural lineup. At the front are vocalists Eric Stinnett and MC Angel Ocean; the other four members are bassist Nate Stanford, guitarist Kevin Callol, percussionist Mauricio Estrada, and drummer Jermaine D. Dukes. Still, the group knows it is going against the city's grain.

"We do recognize the fact that South Beach and downtown use DJs so much, that fans have been trained to hear the same songs they hear on the radio," Ocean says. "But that is also a plus for us, because we are here to give people something from a different perspective than the hip-hop on the radio. We think Miami would be proud of its homegrown talent if it was more aware of what's out there."

Although the live jamming style of the band is similar to local stalwarts such as the Spam Allstars and Locos por Juana, Dangerflow doesn't see these groups as direct competition. "Spam's music is mostly [about] Latin culture," Callol says. "We are more mainstream because we incorporate hip-hop ... and we also have a singer playing hooks."

Now with the Jazid residency, the guys are hoping to boost their profile and book even more gigs. "We all want to quit our day jobs," Ocean says. "We like this to be not just a career but a way of life."

There's something to be said about a killer rhythm section. A great drummer combined with a gifted bassist can make or break any band. Luckily, the stunning boys of Dangerflow know very well how to get down and dirty with thick-ass bass lines that will make you jump to the nearest dance floor. Formed in late 2007, Dangerflow is that rare Miami group that knows how to mix funky reggae with hip-hop and Latin. The band's multicultural lineup — with percussionist Mauricio Estrada and drummer Jermaine D. Dukes — excels at keeping a cool and loose island vibe. Dangerflow also uniquely mixes the sweet, dancehall-tinged vocals of singer Eric Stinnett with energetic raps by MC Ocean. Like other great Miami groups (Locos por Juana and Spam Allstars) Dangerflow knows how to bring out the finest musical elements of its members' respective cultures and then transform that sound into something distinctively Miami.

Bio

Take one part hip-hop, one part soul, add a dash of Afro-Cuban drum rhythms, shake well and enjoy. These carefully-blended ingredients make up the sound of South Florida's most exciting & refreshing hip-hop band, Dangerflow.

Dangerflow brings its hip-hop beat to the crowd with a cocktail of live drums, funky guitars, and jazzy horns. Led by both a conscious wordsmith and soulful vocalist, the danceable sound doesn't come without substance. With influences that range from Gym Class Heroes to a Miami version of The Roots, the group makes sure to include an inspiring message in nearly every song but also incorporates humor and clever wordplay. Dangerflow has been perfecting its signature sound since 2007 and released it's debut album, "Win, Lose Or Die" in Fall 2011.

While the band has been busy rocking crowds and creating new music, theyve also been using their music to affect social change. They recently performed at the United States Conference on HIV/AIDS and have since been collaborating with Miamis urban youth agencies to inspire young artists and activists. In 2011, Dangerflow received both the Miami New Times & the305.com's Best Band Award.

Most recently, Dangerflow's hit single, "The Crown" was featured in MTV's docu-reality reality series Washington Heights, on ESPN Sportscenter, in the Miami Heat documentary "Into The Fire", a Monster Energy video for X Games 18 & in a commercial for the 2012 Australian Open Tennis Championship. Miami Heat fans have also been able to see an NBA announcement video featuring Dangerflow at the American Airlines Arena during every home game of the 2012-2013 NBA regular season & last year's NBA Finals.
