Spirits High

Meant to share this a loooong while ago...but here it is, the message and the music still hold true:

One of the groups that I became aware of by hosting Pitch Control each week quickly became a favorite of mine and I wanted to take a moment to share a little bit from them..out of Utrecht, Holland: C-Mon & Kypski. These guys are on some other isht. Hip-hop, electronic, bollywood, you name it, there are so many different styles and sounds present in what they do. And believe me when I say it, these cats can rock a party. From what I understand, they are quite popular in their native Holland, and their US fanbase is certainly growing.

The guys have a record out now (2010) called "We Are Square" and they'll be in the US (NY, Boston, PA) in the coming months. Check their site for details and keep in touch with them via Twitter.

If you're not familiar with their music and you wanna check these cats out, of course you could go to their sites (and I encourage you to do so,) but what purpose would I be serving if all I did was point you elsewhere??, peep what I've got for ya here...a little exclusive bit from Pitch Control back when it used to air on XM 80 The Move (RIP.)
