Pete Rock & CL Smooth w/ Camp Lo, Stay Tuned (Mane Rok & Deejay Tense), Eddie Knolls, uNit(e) and DJ Wesley Wayne

Pete Rock & CL Smooth

Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth the critically acclaimed Hip-Hop duo emerged onto the music scene in 1991 with their debut EP, “All Souled Out” which was followed by their release of the classic “Mecca and the Soul Brother” LP.

As one of Hip-Hop’s most iconic producer’s, Pete Rock utilized obscure soul and jazz records as sample resources, frequently making use of horn-driven hooks. Lead vocalist CL Smooth’s vocal style tended toward the philosophical. Their signature hit “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” has been recognized as one of the most memorable Hip-Hop records of all time. The duo’s “Mecca & the Soul Brother” LP has been acclaimed and praised for the manner in which it’s lyrics, music, and melodies combined to tell soul stirring and honest stories of urban romance and life.

Camp Lo

Legendary Bronx-bred hip-hop duo Camp Lo burst onto the scene in 1997, when their classic debut album Uptown Saturday Night (and it’s anthemic single “Luchini”) introduced fans to the Lo’s intricate flows and cutting-edge slang editorials. Nearly two decades later, Camp Lo emcees Geechi Suede and Sonny Cheeba are back with Ragtime Hightimes, a brand new album produced by longtime collaborator Ski Beatz. Although he’s worked with the likes of Jay-Z, Mos Def, Curren$y, Mac Miller, Freddie Gibbs, and many more, Ski has always shared a special creative connection with Camp Lo. “Ski is the third member of the Lo,” explains Suede. “Ain’t no end to it..only new beginnings.” Ragtime Hightimes finds Camp Lo and Ski Beatz pushing past boundaries while staying true to their creative vision. “This piece is different ‘cause we were in a different space,” says Suede. “It’s always gonna be us, just different versions of ourselves. We’re exploring different dimensions in visual sound texture.” While much of their classic material was sample-based, the group is now experimenting with live instrumentation more than ever before. “The originality remains,” adds Cheeba. “There are differences in sound, mostly due to the live instruments.” Overall, the result is a singular piece of “time traveling art” that is sure to resonate for years to come. “This album just feels good,” explains Suede. “It’s our favorite way to feel.” Videos for ‘Bright Lights”, “Life I Love”, X-Seminar” and “You” are on rotation now from the new album Ragtime Hightimes, which is available now at most physical and digital outlets. The Black Connection EP featuring the Black Connection trilogy and two new songs “Make Me Dance” and TNT aka Dynamite Love is also available at all digital outlets and streaming service providers.

Stay Tuned

In an internet age where information is coming to us at light speed, how does one bridge the gap between real life and our pixelated version? Stay Tuned to find out.
One of the few live acts to successfully marry the concept of Audio and Visual -
and quite possibly the only live Hip-Hop act to do so - Stay Tuned was the most
fitting name for the outfit, based initially on their love for all
"sub-genres" of Hip-Hop and music as a whole, and the influence those
styles have had on them. This was first reflected in the recorded music made,
taking Boom-Bap, Dubstep/Electro, Hardcore, Downtempo...righteously, whatever moved them at the moment, and crafting live sets as such. Boston MC, Akrobatik pointed out to the duo that he admired how they'd bounce around sonically in their live sets, which was also metaphoric for the ups and downs that were faced in the industry itself. The light bulb flashed. MC Mane Rok figured
"Stay Tuned" would perfectly describe the musical path taken-of which
grew when the live set coupled itself with the visual portion, leaving the
group's then DJ-DeeJay Tense- as the program director controlling a live video
feed with his turntables. This continued to grow and began to come full circle,
influencing how overall ideas and themes for albums came to fruition. The first
being the fictional story of a serial killer (with an underlying theme
questioning media practices) in the form of "Murder He Wrote: A Love
Story."
The Stay Tuned moniker would allow the group to have interchangeable parts. Akin to the idea of channel surfing, letting them invite special guest performers,
making each show unique. The channel surfing idea has now come to full bloom in their self titled EP released 1/24/15 (simply take a listen to understand),
which was also the official introduction of the groups new DJ, DJ AWHAT!!
(formerly of The Pirate Signal,) and the change itself begs the listener
to...well...Stay Tuned.
