SPACE CAMP Death Squad

BandHip HopPunk

Combining the unbridled aggression of anarcho-punk with slick sociopolitically aware lyricism, SPACE CAMP delivers a ruthless performance full of satire, razor rhymes, and sweat. MCs Doc Brown, Secret Levels, and p-teK & DJ Murk Jones rock mics like Odd Future doing Beastie Boys karaoke drunk.

Biography

Armed with the sociopolitical aggression of anarcho-punk and the acerbic wit of a dad joke, SPACE CAMP Death Squad is an Austin based hip hop group dedicated to intense live performances and a post-modern deconstruction of the rap genre (i.e. we make references to the 90's).

SPACE CAMP was formed by local emcees Doc Brown and Noah Swords in October 2011. The two shared a love of black metal, French new wave cinema and a desire to create self-aware, intelligent music. In August 2012, the group dropped their "Racism" EP garnering acclaim from the local hip hop and indie communities alike.

After several months of hard work, and playing any gig thrown at them, the duo quickly gained traction. Since 2011 they've opened for high profile acts such as Fat Tony, Antwon, Flobots, Astronautalis and hometown legends A Giant Dog. In addition, SPACE CAMP performed at a Fun Fun Fun Fest showcase (sponsored by Vice).

In March 2013 Noah Swords retired from the group and Austin emcees p-teK and Colton Ferguson (Secret Levels) were asked to join to fill the gap. After a critically-acclaimed debut performance with Fat Tony and -topic at 35-Denton, SPACE CAMP secured the new 3-emcee line-up with a series of powerhouse performances over the next few months.

SPACE CAMP Death Squad strives to help nurture and cultivate a unified music scene in Austin, TX by playing shows that feature an eclectic mix of bands. Currently, the group is working on a follow up LP called "Fascism".
