"Check out Boston’s freshest Hip Hop act Laz and Cat with their new single Swagger Dance"

Laz and Cat, self-proclaimed Hip-Hop Dynamic-Duo, from Boston are releasing their third single off their debut album – TRICITY VOL. 1, entitled “SWAGGER DANCE,” a bass-booming, vibration-moving, dirty-south inspired hip-hop song that encourages people to make your own dance move no matter how crazy or ridiculous it may be. You can listen to and download “Swagger Dance” here: bit.ly/SwaggerDance.

Laz and Cat are “two minds” from different lifestyles who have come together to make “one sound” in current Hip-Hop styles with a mild fusion in Pop & R&B styles. You can describe this duo as exciting, entertaining, engaging, and a “production force” able to produce music & film all in-house.

If you like New Boyz’ Jerk and Cali Swag District’s Teach Me How to Dougie, listen to Laz and Cat’s new single “SWAGGER DANCE”. You can copy the Jerk or the do the Dougie, but if you got your own swagger you can make your own dance.

"This song (Swagger Dance) is definitely a different, energetic, and fresh concept that Laz & I put together in the studio, and personally I think will catch on like wildfire once people hear it" says Cat. "If you got yourself a little Swag, meaning confidence, that innate quality that makes you a very special person, and you can do whatever dance you can do fluently, and you put a little swag on it, then you got yourself a dance."

Swagger Dance is off of Laz & Cat's debut album, "Tricity Vol. 1" which is available on iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster, Sprint & Verizon VCAST, among many other online retail websites worldwide.

Two minds, from different lifestyles, come together with one common goal in mindto give music and entertainment a different flavor. These are words that would greatly describe the newest sensation to come out of Triceptus Studios. Lazurus and Catipus a.k.a. LAZ & CAT are the first music group created under the newly formed Music Division of Triceptus Studios.

Since their first meeting in College at The New England Institute of Art, Laz & Cat have both excelled in their respective fields, with Laz in audio recording and beatmaking, and Cat, with film & television producing, directing and screenwriting. In 2003 while at The New England Institute of Art, Laz & Cat created a music televisions series called The Beantown Block, spotlighting musical artists in a live setting in the Boston area. The series won numerous awards including a Best Audio award for Laz, and the Most Outstanding Broadcaster award for Cat along with his Associates Degree in Television Broadcasting. In 2005, Laz & Cat created Triceptus Studios as a Film, Television, and Entertainment Production Company, creating various television series such as DA Block Presents, & All 4our One, along with a number of short films that have each appeared at various film festivals in the New England Area. In May of 2009, Triceptus Studios made the decision to create a music division that would help give the opportunity to launch the careers of many promising musical artists, while creating & producing music for artists and clients around the world. Along with Laz & Cat, singers Ms. Smith, and NV join the two bringing together a dynamic blend of strong lyrics and sweet sounds that has resulted in the duos first single FEEL.
