"Hip-Hop that Doesn’t Suck! (re-cap from 4-27-11)"

Last Wed. at Kill City’s Monthly event – “Hip-Hop That Doesn’t Suck”, Kwestro and a couple of the other acts represented nicely. The performers that really caught my attention were: The Kill City Track Gang, Ill-iterate, DJ Shoestrings and Kwestro. The first act I caught was this group called Ill-iterate and they reminded me of Hieroglyphics circa 2007.
I believe this is a new upcoming hip-hop crew from Austin, and they really had a way with their wordplay during their set. Their flow was seamless, entertaining, and funky to describe them in a nutshell. Between the showcases DJ Shoestrings continuously kept dropping classic hip-hop tracks and a lot a new underground hip-hop such as: Atmosphere, Brother Ali and Evidence. It’s always nice to hear DJ’s spin quality hip-hop when I go to these venues. - Boy-Cott Magazine


Read Between The Lines LP



ill iterate consists of two local Austin MC's DKOI and Progress who have both been in the music game for over a decade each. Progress coming from Audio Aesthetics and DKOI from Mutual Trust, the two realized their unique styles completemented each other well. With that in mind, they got together and started work on the Read Between the Lines LP.

Instantly the two could see that their styles were a perfect match. However, they quickly realized there was something missing from the dynamic, that extra edge. This ending up taking the form of a femal vocalist Anna Little joining the group. After performing the Why Be? Entertainment unofficial SXSW ST. Patty's Showcase in 2011, they confirmed through crowd response that this was in fact something they could run with.

Since then the group has performed monthly in many venues throughout Austin, and has been featured in various publications such as Boycott Magazine, and the Austin Chronicle.
