We have paid our dues in the scene and have supported hip-hop in our community. In 2006 we are aiming higher with the new LP dropping in late spring. Our first single will feature the production of OH NO (Stones Throw Records) on the A side with two B-Side bangers produced by Justin Crates. Lyrically, and production wise these tracks are next level and we are aiming high, as we feel there is no doubt to the dopeness of what we are making. Expect to hear the first single on College Radio across Canada and the US in March 2006. Our fully featured website will be available in Febuary 06 with an online store to purchace our record (

Set List

Our typical setlist revolves about putting together songs that dont let up on the hype factor. We want people to be moving and off thier seats. Get them involved.
Usually we would do a set with these songs:
Desciples of the Dojo
Mad Clients
Mountain People
Learn That
Come to Pass

For the average club/bar show we do a set of about 20-30 minutes long with some freestyles and crowd work in between songs. We do not do covers except for using certain classic beats for interludes and intros.
