The Artifacts
The Artifacts
The Artifacts is a hip hop group consisting of El Da Sensei, Tame One and DJ Kaos. They hail from Newark, New Jersey and made underground music that paid homage to the four elements of hip hop. The Artifacts' most popular single "Wrong Side of Da Tracks" paid special homage to graffiti art, as they were graffiti artists themselves.
Also known as "The Brick City Kids", the Artifacts released their first album, Between a Rock and a Hard Place on October 27, 1994. Well received by underground hip hop audiences, it featured b-boy and graffiti themes. The album's beats were produced by Buckwild (from the DITC crew) and T-Ray (from the Soul Assassins crew). The Artifacts' second album, That's Them was released on April 15, 1997. It featured similar material, but it did not receive as much recognition as their debut effort. The Artifacts split soon after the release of this second album.
Tame One and El Da Sensei have both continued to release music as solo artists. In 2003, Tame One joined the Weathermen, an underground rap group including Cage Kennylz, Camu Tao, Aesop Rock, and El-P. Soon after joining the Weathermen, Tame One and Cage released the album Waterworld under the name Leak Bros. In 2009, Tame ONe collaborated with another member of the Definitive Jux label, releasing the album Parallel Uni-Verses with Del the Funky Homosapien. El Da Sensei has released a number of solo albums and collaborated with the Polish rap group The Returners in 2008, as well as East Coast-based group, The Immortals Project in 2009.
MC Ducer
MC Ducer
Born on February 23rd 1987 in East Los Angeles, Josh (MC DUCER) Rodriguez was brought into the world to a family with strong morals and a religious backround. Of Salvadorean descent and raised in Pasadena ca, Ducer brings an important element and talent to the Urban Underground family that makes coming to a show more eventful and entertaining. After falliing in love to Hip-Hop at the age of twelve, and listening to such acts as..the Wu, Big L, A tribe called quest, Freestyle Fellowship, and Big Daddy Kane, Ducer already had it inplanted in his head what he wanted to pursue for the rest of his life. With his smooth yet witty and ridiculious freestyles, he is able to wow a crowd and hold his own on any open mic event, rap cypers, and battles..DUDE IS A BEAST!!!! For many years you could catch MC DUCER destroying cats and murdering cypers at the legendary open mic spot Project Blowed at Leimert Park. Countless Thursday after Thursday for many years showing dedication and unique skill and hardwork put him in the category of officially becoming a Project Blowedian. After gaining recognition and respect from his peers, Ducer started participating in local battle competitions and showing up at any and every single hip hop event he can get to, to jump in cyphers and enjoy the atmosphere as well. After making a name for himself in the battle scene Ducer decided it was time to be forever immortalized by making music. INFINATE WISHES, is the name of his highly anticipated debut album which features legendary mc’s as well as other mc’s holding it down in the LA underground scene.
