Biography

PERFECK STRANGERS

Chemicals, nitro glycerine and gas will explode when mixed together. The same is said about Hip Hop's newest dynamic duo, Perfeck Strangers! Joining forces after years of blessing eardrums as impeccably brilliant soloists, veteran Toronto emcees Dan-e-o and Promise are now tackling the world of music as a tandem.

Dan-e-o first came into prominence with his debut single, “Dear Hip Hop”. Released through EMI on Beat Factory's RapEssentials Volume One in 1996, the track is documented as a “Canadian Hip Hop classic”! Even without major mainstream notoriety, Dan-e-o's subsequent solo albums, The Book of Daniel (2000) and See No Evil, Hear No Evil (2004) have cemented his reputation as one of the world's most elite emcees.

Known for his potent lyrical content, Promise focuses primarily on life, love and the
consciousness of mankind. He’s certainly no stranger to the microphone.
His debut solo album, More Than Music (2008), boasts guest appearances by Montell Jordan, Elzhi of Slum Village, Royce Da 5'9” and more. Promise's sophomore effort, Awakening (2011), further highlights his incredible prowess as a rap artist and songwriter.

It’s easy to say that Perfeck Strangers are an unlikely pair, but when listening to their music you would think they have been rhyming together for years. Both accomplished rappers in their own rights, their union presents a “perfeck” melding of talent in the vein of Hip Hop's most heralded duos, such as Black Star, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Little Brother. Dan-e-o and Promise have even been compared to legendary tag-teams like EPMD, Das EFX and most recently the Jay Z and Kanye West partnering for the way they effortlessly flip lines back and forth with each other.

In the summer of 2010, Dan-e-o and Promise's first single as Perfeck Strangers was leaked to the internet. Entitled “Work To Do”, the Isley Brothers-inspired track takes a comical approach to discussing the duo's struggles in the rap game. The release also includes an appearance by Hip Hop heavyweight, Drake and the song's YouTube post garnered thousands of plays within days of it being leaked.

The imPerfeck spelling of the word “perfect” in the group's name speaks to their admittance that the two are mortals, not without their shortcomings. Acknowledging a higher power as both their life source and primary inspiration,
the duo has set out on a mission to provide the world with what they consider a much needed resurgence of substance-heavy music.

In March 2012 they made their Series Premiere LP available as a free download thru Urbnet Records. In May of 2012, Series Premiere made it to #1 on EarShots National Hip Hop chart. Videos for their hit singles “Ghetto” and the documentary style “Stay Me” can be found on online. With more on the way, Perfeck Stranger is also featured on Urbnet’s Underground Hip-Hop Volume 7. and Certified vol. 2. So Stay alert and keep your ears to the street for the perfect Hip Hop group, Perfeck Strangers!
