About The Bands

Deltron 3030

Deltron 3030 is composed of a trinity of alt-rap all-stars: Master lyricist Del The Funky Homosapien, virtuoso turntablist DJ Kid Koala, and super producer Dan "The Automator" Nakamura. Individually, they stand at the top of their respective musical disciplines; together, on the eponymous Deltron 3030, they warped space, bent time, transcended genre, and blew minds, creating an album that still stands today as one of the most important records in the annals of underground hip-hop. In September 2013, the group released its follow-up album, Deltron 3030: Event II.

RA Scion

Ra Scion

Since his emergence in Seattle’s hiphop hotbed as one half of Common Market, RA Scion has consistently delivered dense lyrical subject matter over a wide variety of beats. Whether rapping under the superhero pseudonym Victor Shade, going raw, no frills on BEGXBORROWXSTEAL or riding Todd Sykes’ Dilla-esque production on Adding To The Extra, the emcee is steadily expanding an already impressive catalog of pointed socio-political commentary. Last year Scion collaborated with local EDM wizard Vox Mod for the project Sharper Tool; Bigger Weapon, a 14-track warrior-style epic featuring guests Daniel Blue (Motopony), Blake Lewis, Romaro Franceswa and more. The album is lush and rich in texture, expansive and purposeful in its scope; an honest, impassioned reflection on the nature of the human condition and a bold declaration for the enduring spirit of man. He is currently working on an exciting new album set to release Fall/Winter of this year.

Fox and the Law

When asked about what type of music they play, Fox and the Law responded "stoner glam." While it's perhaps hard to explain what that means, we do know that their music combines catchy 70's style rock guitar riffs, an attitude heavy sound with wise and playful lyrics. www.foxandthelaw.com
