Sadistik
Sadistik
Sadistik is not just another rapper, he's an artist in the deepest sense of the word. Hailing all the way from the scenic gloom of Seattle, Washington, Sadistik has quickly gained the hearts and ears of listeners by opting for a more personal and heartfelt brand of music. By combining caustic honesty, lyrical wit and technical innovation, Sadistik has crafted a sound that he can truly call his own while circumventing the limiting cliches of rap music. His lyrical endeavors are not without the help of some of the most talented producers in the underground scene, however, as he's worked with the likes of Emancipator, Kno (of CunninLynguists), and Blue Sky Black Death.Additionally, some of underground rap's most revered wordsmiths such as Tech N9ne, Eyedea, CunninLynguists and Sage Francis round off an impressive list of artists who have joined him on a track. Add a rigorous international touring schedule, and becoming a hometown favorite in recent years joining larger acts such as Lupe Fiasco and Slaughterhouse, and you have a strong force on the indie rap scene.

The day after Sadistik finished recording his critically acclaimed album Flowers For My Father, he began writing his most recent release, Ultraviolet. With a head full of acid, left field 60s & 70s cinema and palpable frustration with the world around him, Sadistik took an unabashed nose dive into the subconscious mind, releasing a three dimensional portrait painted in hues of psychosis and psychedelia. Drawing on his background in clinical psychology and cinematic predilections, he created a richly layered world of his own and offered the listener a passing glimpse through the keyhole.
Nacho Picasso
Nacho Picasso
Seattle rapper Nacho Picasso found sudden mainstream recognition in 2011 when Pitchfork dubbed his second solo mixtape one of the best rap debuts of the year. Forbes gave last year's Exalted the number four spot on its "100 Best Free Albums of 2012" list and XXL magazine recently included the versatile MC in "The New New – 15 Seattle Rappers You Should Know."
Rafael Vigilantics
Rafael Vigilantics
Rafael Vigilantics has put in the hard work and the hard times and I'll be damned if it doesn't show him come thru the other side to light up for us. His lyrics sound more like a confession then a hip-hop song. His music sounds more like an ominous war-drum than a rap track. His cadence more like a motorcycle ride thru the desert than a steady flow. His tone is fierce yet pleading. Think Iggy Pop forces Roy Orbison to rap at gunpoint while Bukowski watches. If you like P.O.S and Aesop Rock, chances are you'll like Rafael Vigilantics; if you don't like hip-hop at all, chances are it wont change how you feel about him. He doesn't sound like much of anything we've ever heard before, self described as "the noise before the sound" and "SEARCH-AND-DESTROY-HIP-HOP."
Listen to his title track "Unforgiven" from "The Orgasm of a Ghost" for a good taste of murder and the bad life sung to a drunken blues swagger. Listen to the punk-rooted anthem "Still Fighting" from his first record "Bury Me Standing" to hear how he spent his years between the railroad tracks and the wrecking ball. Listen to "The Darkness" from his newest release "The Spade Tapes" and you will find yourself in a circus full of love, drugs and kidnappings in Mexico. Whatever you do just make sure you really listen. There's a lot of story here and its a heartfelt worthwhile ride.
Maulskull
Maulskull
Producer and lyricist Maulskull, best known for founding Denver based hip hop outfit Black Mask, has been making noise in the indie rap scene for more than 6 years. Both solo and with full band backing, he has toured nationally promoting his pirate hip hop. Maulskull has played hundreds of shows, sharing stage space with respected acts like Grieves, Pharoahe Monch, Gza, Mac Lethal, Asher Roth, Slightly Stoopid, Mix Master Mike, RJD2 and even 80's rockstars Warrant just to name a few, as well as full scale national tours in 2012 and 2013 with DJ Abilities (Rhymesayers), Sadistik (Fake Four), The Chicharones (Camobear), Louis Logic (Fake Four), Sleep (Strange Famous) and many more. Fueled by the success of the most recent solo album (2012's "Us & Them") and Maulskull's Death By Thr33s EP series, which offered up a new 3 song EP every week for 19 consecutive weeks, he took his live solo set out for the entire summer on Warped Tour 2012, performing on the "Bring It Back" stage and distributing free music (over 7,000 copies of "Us and Them) hand-to-hand. In 2013, Maulskull has been hard at work producing tracks for his friends Sadistik, The Chicharones, Mane Rok, Prime Element, Verble and his Black Mask partners Aklock and AGFlux. Maulskull is also producing two new records for long time friend and touring buddy, Sleep of Oldominion (SFR) and the first is scheduled for release in the fall of 2013. You can check out Maulskull's amazing body of work for free at blackmask.bandcamp.com and enjoy a roller coaster ride of collaboration with artists like Tha Alkaholiks, Moka Only (Swollen Members) Josh Martinez, Celph Titled, Louis Logic, Verbal Kent (Molemen), Sleep, Verbal, Sole, Sapient and Eternia to name a few. Maulskull is currently in the studio recording his sophomore album "Un-amazing Grace" and working hard to bring his music to your doorstep in the coming year.
