Pete Rock
Pete Rock
Peter Phillips (born June 21, 1970 in Bronx, New York), better known by his stage name Pete Rock, is an American record producer, DJ and rapper. He rose to prominence in the early 1990s as one half of the critically acclaimed group Pete Rock & CL Smooth. After the duo went their separate ways, Rock continued with a solo career that has garnered him worldwide respect, though little in the way of mainstream success. Along with groups such as Stetsasonic, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr, Rock played a major role in the merging of elements from jazz into hip hop music (also known as jazz rap). He is widely recognized as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time, and is often mentioned alongside DJ Premier and RZA as one of the mainstays of 1990s East Coast hip hop production. Pete Rock is also the older brother and younger cousin, respectively, of rappers Grap Luva and Heavy D.

Editors from About.com ranked him as #2 in their "Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers" list.
Fresh Breath Committee
Fresh Breath Committee
Fresh Breath Committee; music imbued with a classic feel and brimming with fluid grooves and compelling beats. Featuring a stable of stellar MCs who could easily turn heads on their own, the group manages to shine individually without stepping all over one another. Lyrically, the Committee has substance; whether they're grappling with matters of the heart or simply reflecting on life, the wordplay is always thoughtful. And the hooks, propped up by the soul-kissed pipes of Crystal, make the platter even more memorable. Fresh Breath Committee is a Denver hip-hop group driven to create substantial music.

There are eight members in the group: Flawless (MC/Singer/Producer), Purpose (MC/Singer), Fo Chief (MC), Kontrast (MC), Catch Lungs (MC), Crystal (Female Singer), Hi-Res (Producer) and DJ Skip Ripkin. They share a bond between all of them that is fueled by respect. Each with a passion for music and an enthusiasm to create music that is different from the norm.

The ideology behind their debut album, CPR, is that hip-hop is not dead, but its heartbeat is faint. Fresh Breath Committee is here to revive the music. The Committee is here to force life back into the hip-hop culture by putting out an album that tells a story. The goal is to be heard. Fresh Breath Committee has been touring the state of Colorado for over a year now. It is a Denver grown group that wants to put Colorado on the map of hip-hop so that Colorado can be known for intelligent music with a vision.
