Killing Time - This Dance Dance Revolution Will Not Be Televised -
This is was one of the nicest surprises of 2007. It is a lyrical whiplash from start to finish however it remains light and easy and fun from start to finish. The raps are sure fire heat and the beats keep you nodding your head all day long. One of my favourite discman albums! Vancity what!

How did an X-Box game find its way into my review pile? It’s not a game, actually, it’s the cunningly packaged and marketed new instalment from Vancity’s Imagination’s Treetrunk. Chadio, Shay Faded, Azrael, Cons, Zach and Kevarnold (and a sweetly voiced Japanese girl named Yummy on the interludes) make up the rapidly paced and verbosely named This Dance Dance Revolution Will Not Be Televised. Every member brings something unique to the table, but together they blend with their speedy raps and more double-timing than Bobby on Whitney. TDDRWNBT’s debut has a very basic objective: make you bounce. And it launches appropriately with “Bounce.” “Cigarette,” which samples a hypnotic East Asian incantation, has circulated through the scene for over a year now and like the cigarette brand, it’s a Canadian classic, and addictive too. This is a CD to insert at the party, walk away and watch the groove unfold. (Imagination's Treetrunk)

Bio

In 2004, Killing Time and Imagination's Treetrunk, two unrelated, high energy collectives out of Vancouver stumbled upon a project that would set them apart from other acts in their genre. After being put on the same opening lineups several times and proceding to blow away audiences, leaving them tired for the headlining acts, they decided to combine their energy and quite opposite styles to create a truly unique collaboration.

With production ranging from electronic dance beats to hard hitting rock instrumentals, using everything from synthesizers to cellos, the music keeps the listener at full attention from beginning to end. The four dynamic emcees deliver their own unique styles together over the multitude of rhythms, sometimes using fast, high energy choppy raps, while other times using strategically laid out contentual lyrics.

DDR has shared the stage with acts such as: Raekwon the Chef(Wu-Tang Clan), Devin the Dude, Tonedeff, Cunninlynguists, and local acts like Moka Only, Josh Martinez, Emotionz and Kaboom. In the Summer of 2007 they headlined the Vancouver stage of Al Gore's "Live Earth" celebration, and have played the Mobilization Against War Overseas festival two years in a row. Their debut album has received praise in the local music magazine "Exclaim!" and made Third Verse's top 21 albums of 2007 in ugsmag.com as well as making an appearance in the highly circulated "24" newspaper.

With the solid fan base they've collected in the short period of time they've existed, DDR is sure to snowball fans once they step outside the city that created them... The revolution has begun, are you ready?
