Proximity
Proximity
Proximity, the hip-hop conglomerate from Denver Colorado is a group driven from life experiences and a strong passion for music. This Colorado based collaborative movement consists of two innovative MC’s and a classic hip-hop DJ. Provoke and Grafik craft positive yet conscious lyrics that everyone can relate with while J Steele applies the backbone to their live performance implemented with classic vinyl samples, and the cuts with hand speed that wink to the old school era.

In 2003 Provoke and Grafik pulled their talents together to create “Proximity Minds” an 18 track self-titled album that sold over 500 copies locally in its 2005 release. It wasn’t long before this trio was added as main support for national acts such as Jurassic 5, Swollen Members, and Nas. In 2006 Proximity took their show on the road performing throughout Colorado and the Midwest region. After creating a buzz on tour Proximity moved forward with their sophomore album “When Push Comes to Shove” in 2007.

Shortly after the group took a hiatus from the road and studio to restructure their personal lives and focus on the future planning of the next album. This ground-breaking project declared the arrival of a significant new force in Colorado hip-hop. In March of 2014 Lead by Example took their loyal fans by storm and raised flags from national media outlets such as LyricallyFit.com. Bursting out of their scene Proximity signed the dotted line and joined forces with Universal Language. An independent record label with similar sounding artists such as world renowned Windchill and Nieve. This was a perfect fit and a building block for the group’s future success.

A few months later under the new regime of Universal Language, Proximity released “The Shock Therapy EP.” Electronically infused beats with a classic hard core hip-hop vibe, this masterpiece caught the attention of a whole new group of listeners and broke them onto the world wide scale. With all these exceptional accolades, Proximity has not only risen to the top of Colorado hip-hop, but has cemented themselves a place at the very forefront of the music industry.
SKAM2?
SKAM2?
SKAM2? is a double-threat of musical and visual artistry, not to mention a seasoned vet, having recorded with such influential lyricists as, Eminem, Raekwon The Chef (Wu-Tang Clan), Ill Bill (La Coka Nostra) and Talib Kweli. He's also played an integral role in the artwork for such albums as Eminem's "Slim Shady LP", D-12′s, "Devil's Night" and A Tribe Called Quest's "Beat's Rhymes and Life", (to name a few). Known world-wide for his classically, sinister illustrations, his music is the perfect counterpart. SKAM2? is truly is an artist in every sense of the word, with the unique ability to sonically paint the most vivid or darkest of scenes and then turn around and show it to you.

"I even got the underground shit that you did with SKAM2?" – Eminem, from the song "Stan"
