Voss has been rapping for longer than you'd think, about pretty much everything you think about. The "HOW 'BOUT NOW?" EP dropped on your head in April and you don't even know it...yet. You can listen to his releases (including the FREE "It's On Me" mixtape) in their entirety at http://www.voss.bandcamp.com. Oh and you can find him on Facebook too. Anyway, he puts on a live show like no other. Trust me, I'm him. Catch me while you can still afford it.
Kounsel is exactly where Hip Hop should be. Growing up in middle class neighborhoods throughout Long Island and Queens, Kounsel honed his skills on the microphone. Influenced by the greatest MCs the game has to offer, Kounsel has an incredibly raw and emotional spirit to his raps, true to himself and the culture. Kounsel, real name Marshall Wilkinson, was given the name by his friends for being the one in his circle to give guidance and express his thoughts on all matters. This expression drove Kounsel to write and perform raps relentlessly. The name finally stuck and Kounsel became a Chartered Arbitrator only to turn around and pursue his passion for music full time. With a flow on Dreams Money Can Buy that will take you on a journey through his current life in NYC to his verses on Unsigned Hype and Weakers that show his raw power and grit and various recorded freestyles, no question Kounsel is a star on the rise.

BoomBox consists of two versatile producers, DJs, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and longtime friends Russ Randolph and Zion Rock Godchaux. Together they develop an electronic blend of vintage Rock and Blues made to move dance floors while incorporating their signature Backbeat, Psychedelia and Funky House sounds. Applying a multi-track platform, they are free to create their hybrid style on the fly with a rhythm that moves fans and opens them up to Godchaux and Randolph's overall vision. Derived from the rich musical history of Muscle Shoals, AL, to the psychedelic rock and underground electronic scenes of the west coast, their unique approach can only be achieved by the blending of sound and culture.
BoomBox's first release, Visions of Backbeat, contained the breakout song "Stereo" that built the foundation for their rapidly growing fan base. After years of steady touring and honing their sound, they released their sophomore effort, downriverelectric, and was hailed by critics as a progressive follow up effort. BoomBox are continuously working on new releases, using a blend of programming and live instrumentation with both members on drums, Randolph on keys, and Godchaux on guitar, bass and vocals.
Each live show is unique to the venue and the crowd, who are the driving force of the rhythmic BoomBox experience. "It's all natural, it's all in real time, and that's why it's Rock 'n' Roll", says Godchaux. Traditional set lists are never created prior to shows, instead, BoomBox chooses the music based on the atmosphere, to create a one-of-a-kind experience for fans. Randolph adds, "We just want to go out with no game plan. That way it's fresh for us, and we can follow the energy of the crowd. We're down to get down, and we hope that people are down with us."
