NICK WIZ

The mastermind behind the beats. Well, to know him is to respect him, both for his talent and extremely strong work ethic and any artist who has had the opportunity to work with him, knows this. He began his career as a teenager in Teaneck, New Jersey, working on EckoUnlimited’s “Underground Airplay” cassette series, followed by CellaDwellas album “Realms and Reality,” and subsequently working with artists such as Mad Skillz, Miilkbone, Chubb Rock, Chino XL and Rakim. The Nick Wiz legacy continues to be, living and breathing within his ever expanding, body of work. The only question still yet to be answered is, “Will you be a part of that legacy?”

LEWIS PARKER

Rapper Lewis Parker was born in London but grew up in Canterbury with fellow producer DJ Bias. While still only a teenager Lewis released “B Boy Antiks” and “Rise” through Trevor Jackson’s Bite It! label. The EP and 12″ featured some of the finest production to come out of the UK hiphop scene, more reminiscent of Pete Rock and DITC than Hijack or Gunshot. It took a long time for him to sign an album deal, eventually going with Massive Attack’s Virgin imprint “Melankolic” where he released “Masquerades & Silhouettes” in 1998. The brief album captured much of the promise shown on his early 12″s and the Massive Attack connection and resultant tour gained him a large audience around the world. His more recent work has been less consistent but his best work remains amongst the most musical Hiphop in the world. Has now moved from the UK to live in New York.

ARSONISTS

The group formed with five members in 1993 in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York with the name Bushwick Bomb Squad. The main members were Q-Unique, D-Stroy, Freestyle, Swel Boogie and Jise One, although the number of members eventually grew to eight. Q-Unique was a member of New York City’s well-known breakdancing crew, the Rock Steady Crew.[3] The group released the single, “The Session”, in 1996, which found airplay on New York radio stations and brought offers from record labels.[4] They signed with the independent label Fondle ‘Em Records and changed their name to the Arsonists. They released their debut album, As the World Burns, in 1999 on Matador Records, an indie rock label that ventured into hip hop music for the release.[5] The album received critical acclaim, but didn’t achieve mainstream commercial success. The group went from five members, down to three: Q-Unique, Jise One and Swel Boogie, for their follow-up album, Date of Birth (2001).[4] With their live performances, the group is known to be very varied in their rap style, drawing on many old school hip hop and east coast hip hop influences. August 2011, Freestyle came back and joined the Arsonists and played the first show in 11 years that had all four members on stage at Hip Hop Kemp, Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic.
