20 YEARS OF HARDCORE HIP HOP
In 1993, years before anyone told ya’ to “get up off them goddamn diamonds”, South Jamaica, Queens, craziest Bal-Hed sons, ONYX, were already busy takin’ some of the Golden Era’s loot and running with it to new heights, stamping the term “hardcore” in its darkest terms upside hip hop’s head with their seminal, trailblazing platinum debut, Bacdafucup.
The iconic cover image of four bald, angry-lookin’ niggas, their legendary “MadFace” logo, a shoulder-strapped automatic and a menacing boot-tread took rap to a world that could “Slam” in an era where even looking at someone wrong at a rap show could get you gone. Fredro Starr, Sticky Fingaz, SonSee and the late brother Big DS didn’t break the rules: they scared them the fuck away.
Twenty years and several full-length underground classics later, there is still nothing so raw in live rap as getting tossed into the barrier by the smiling, sweating, maniacal fans swarming the pit, to find yourself face-to-face with the ever-Mad Faced, ever Bal-Heded ‘Dro and Sticky.
Face to face with loud, abrasive greatness, you might just find yourself lucky enough to embrace a boot to the temple when Sticky stage-dives, or swimming with the sharks to make waves for the crowd surfers while you “Throw Ya Gunz”.
ONYX made boom bap gangsta, gave metal street cred, and exposed the kinship of hip hop and punk rock cultures to a wider global audience on the strength of their delivery and the look in their eye that said this was no gimmick, motherfucker – all under the guidance of their mentor and producer, the departed architect Jam Master Jay.
With the Snowgoons-produced Cuzo LP hot on the way and the custom-built hybrid project Black Rock in the aisles and their newly-minted international “100Mad” click growing stronger, 2013 sees ONYX bring it back-da-fuck up in your mad face. Watch out, ‘cuz they’re coming for head-blood.
Richard Denton, better known by his stage name HMAN, is a Canadian rapper from Montreal. As an independent artist HMAN recently released two projects, R.A.W (Rolling And Winning) in 2013 and Cloud Surfing in 2014, featuring collabs with Fiend, Sticky Fingaz, and orginal ROC member Freeway. On tour, HMAN has been on the ticket with artists including Raekwon, Waka Flocka Flame, D-Block, ONYX and The Beatnuts.
Mostly known as the front-man in No Assembly Required from the last 15 years.
Luca Mele has released 7 albums with No Assembly Required since 1999. Luca Mele's debut solo album featured Luca singing and playing acoustic guitar with some hand drums and other instruments.
This 1st CD is experimental, acoustic rock with elements of tribal and monk sounds.
Luca says "This is a concept album, about coming out of dark times and into the light through love. The feeling of coming out of the dark was very euphoric, it was like coming back to life after a very bad near death experience with hell."
This concept is found through out the songs, even in the name of the songs it self. 4 of the 10 songs are named in Sanskrit.
The 2nd Album is a concept album based on a recurring dream Luca has had since he was a child to this day. The music on this album will feature influences from Rock, Hip Hop and Pop Music from the 80s and 90s era as well as new and modern influences too. Luca is working along side co producer Voodoo Drew. This 2nd album will also have features by Jay-R and Twiisted.
