Funny Biz & TopiQ are Glitta Kings, two incredibly dynamic emcees based in Boulder, Colorado. They craft tuneful hip hop music to be enjoyed by listeners of any age or affiliation, as simultaneously, intend on making booties shake as they are unconcerned with confining genre labels. Raised on rhythm and melody, the two reveal developed understandings of their web of musical influences, and more importantly, how to present them with cohesion. Their debut EP, Got Panache, find the duo exploring jazz, soul, and golden age hip hop soundscapes in a fun loving romp through themes of love, adventure, inspiration, introspect, relationships, and of course, yoga pants and laundry. Not to be pigeonholed, the two showcase instrumental talent on bass, cello, and flute, and fully display their well practiced vocal harmony abilities in such singles as the nostalgic, horn laden "On My Way Out", and the dark, mysterious, and provocative "Bed of Nails", featuring Progress, one of their very talented rapper friends.
As members of established hip hop acts Whiskey Blanket and Audible Audities, Glitta Kings are taking the chance to create new and exciting music apart from there longstanding projects, respectively.
Capitalizing on the increasingly multimedia driven music experience, the twosome is developing an online presence that features a multitude of format types and allows users to access content on the go.
TopiQ, born Quinn Lynch, Heads up production duties for the record, all while being the recording and mixing engineer and shouldering his half of the vocals. Born in Detroit, and raised in Atlanta and a slew of places, Lynch Mixes his smooth, drawled charm of a southern boy with the unique sound only possessed by a Colorado emcee. His early affection for bass, keyboards and vocals spawned a musical mind capable of crafting complex instrumentals from scratch, where most hip hop producers rely largely on pre recorded samples.
Funny Biz, born Jordan Polovina, Brings a highly energetic, spontaneous personality to the pair's music. A Coloradan transplant from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Polovina exhibits the outspoken nature of an east coaster and the unbridaled musical inclination of one who started on cello at age 9. Polovina is a towering figure who can croon and rap with equal facility, only beginning to reveal his beatboxing abilities on cuts like the bubbly "Gimme A Sip".
After more than 6 years working with their full time projects, the 2 jumped at the chance to make a fun filled departure from the norm. " This EP allowed us to make a collection of catchy, melodic 3 minute songs," said Lynch, Explaining that has group Audible Audities' songs often surpass the 5 minute mark. "With So many people, (AA Has for emcees and a dj) You are limited in your ability to complete a thought sometimes," he continued. " This gave us the opportunity to be thorough without being long winded."
For Polovina, The collaboration with TopiQ was a therapeutic change of pace. " Whiskey blanket is more serious and political subject matter wise, whereas Got Panache is basically a sing song party record, but shares its serious tracks as well," Polovina offered," It's been really fun leaving the message heavy thing and just a writing simple, melodic pop hooks," he noted, adding that he believes the twosome created more accessible music to mass audiences than either of their respective groups have to date.
With a plan of action as multifaceted as the musicians themselves, Glitta Kings, Got Panache EP, is poised to end the recession, or at least it'll cheer up the financially unfortunate. Now that's their debut album is released ( download it for free online at funnybiztopiqareglittakings.bandcamp.com), they are delving right into their next project, Boys From Home, which is the duo plus there long time partner in rhyme and music, Progress, and is sure to catch the eye of the public and certain media.
