Xiuhtezcatl
Xiuhtezcatl
Xiuhtezcatl (pronounced ‘Shoe-Tez-Caht’) is a multifaceted recording artist, bilingual rapper, songwriter, producer, and composer. He has performed on stages across the globe using his art as a tool for resistance and a medium to communicate his story. Using his music to reflect the world around him, Xiuhtezcatl writes to bring people together, inspire his generation, and change the face of hip-hop. Collaborating and performing with a diverse array of influential artists has offered an amazing platform from which Xiuhtezcatl’s musical progress has evolved. Since releasing the album Generation Ryse with Earth Guardians in 2014, his style has emerged as he refines his skills onstage and on the mic.

Xiuhtezcatl is working with a team of world-class producers and instrumentalists including multi-gold record producer Brian Hard into release his debut hip-hop record Break Free. Here, Xiuhtezcatl begins to tell his stories from the frontlines of oppression and injustice. Preparing for an early 2018 release, Xiuhtezcatl sees Break Free making waves. As a young indigenous person of color, Xiuhtezcatl is showing his generation the power of using our passions to tell our stories and create change.

From rapping at protests without a sound system before his voice dropped to performing at the Standing Rock encampment with Immortal Technique and Nahko, Xiuhtezcatl is waking people up with his art. His message reminds the world that hip-hop has always been a voice for the oppressed and a tool for liberation.
Lily Fangz
Lily Fangz
Lily Fangz is about fully engaging in the creative explorations of life, biting down, infecting those around with passion, perspective, and perhaps asking the questions that aren't posed enough. Wordplay started way back- writing since she could hold a pencil, that process evolved into stories, sketches, poetry, rhymes. Her memory is capacious and flow sick like contagious- so she began to share her words and release them free from their pages. Gravitated towards performance poetry, a lot of slams, jams, and cyphers. Realizing making music and art is the only thing that can quench her thirst LFangz is here to Chomp.The.Fuck.Down sink her teeth in and invites all to join the feast of engaging with this human experience C.T.F.D!
Write Minded
Write Minded
Based out of the Foothills of Colorado, Write Minded is a fresh and tasteful addition to the National music scene. With a unique mixture of hip-hop, rock, funk, reggae, and soul, Write Minded pushes the confining boundaries of genre to bring you something brand-new.

The group materialized when Sam and Jesse branched from a local collective and began focusing on an acoustic hip-hop set with added percussion from Jonah. In preparation for a larger gig, TurtleBear, Fofo, and Willy slid right in bringing flavors of psychedelic rock, true funk, electronic hip hop, and so many other tasty sounds that added a multitude of dynamics. What formed out of the experience was an exclusive blend of music that ultimately developed into Write Minded.

Things took off after the release of the Write Minded Demo, and just one year later, Write Minded released their debut album, "Eye Above".
