Breaking onto the music scene in 2006 as the MTV Awarded Los Angeles hip-hop duo U-N-I, rapper/singer Yonas Michael is branching out on his own with the release of the Mixtape Before Blvck Swan Theory featuring unique interpretation remixes over tunes by the likes of Toro Y Moi, N.E.R.D., Brazilian Girls, Kavisnky, Alexander Ebert and Poolside - to precede his 2013 album Blvck Swan Theory.
In hip-hop, as in life, there are few things more important than family. And no one embodies the bonds of brotherhood better than The Lytics, the five-man Winnipeg crew whose bid for genre supremacy has long been a family affair. Quite literally, in fact: Brothers Andrew and Anthony Sannie have been trading rhymes together since childhood — as has cousin Mungala Londe, who moved in with the family as a teen. The beats come courtesy of big brother Alex Sannie, who in the early days handled production duties from his bedroom and basement studios, while newly-“adopted” brother DJ Lonnie Ce has plenty of practice whipping dancefloors into a frenzy.

The son of Sudanese and American parents, Amir Mohamed was born and raised in the United States capital city of Washington DC, spending hot summers in Khartoum learning Arabic and swimming in the Nile. Growing up amidst the sounds of New York hip hop, his father playing Oud, Go-Go, and gospel, Amir took his first steps as an MC producer in the analog basement studio of his legendary neighbor, Garry Shider (Parliament Funkadelic).He now works as both artist and consultant with Mello Music Group, one of the foremost emerging independent labels to take advantage of the digital revolution to build a successful business. Oddisee’s newest album “People Hear What They See” is a culmination of the duality of his life experiences, from DC internal politics to third world struggles, the line between love and selfishness, and the personal conflict between self-sabotage and progress,set to a backdrop of intricate drums, lush instrumentation, and soul-stirring harmonies.
