This morning I'd like to introduce you to two of the best guys you haven't met. DJ Lee and Jason Hamlin have themselves an awesome band called Scratch Track and I highly suggest you check them out.
Taken from their website:
Some might label it acoustic hip-hop soul, others could call it a deft blend of beats and unplugged instrumentation, The Chicago Sun Times christened the band a slick cross section between “Digable Planets and Jack Johnson,” while On Tap attempted to identity them as “Outkast or the Neptunes…throw in a guitar and more beat boxing, and you might come close.” But no matter what adjectives are put in place, Tennessee-bred/Kansas City-based Scratch Track is an anomaly to the most ambitiously extreme degrees, that is perhaps best left to the words of a New York University reporter who praised the pair as “mind-bending, style-bending and undeniably original.”
If you are anywhere near Atlanta tonight (3/14), come out to Smith's Olde Bar on Piedmont Ave. They're rocking the Atlanta Room at 8pm. Tickets are $10 at the door. And.. if you're nowhere near the ATL, feel free to check out their website. I'll post a link to their music page below.
