Detroit’s PHAT KAT with SF’s own DJ DESIGN

Featuring the conscious hip hop and distinct musical sound Sweatshop Union is rapidly becoming known for, their fourth album Water Street is unleashed. The critically acclaimed crew, made up of Kyprios, Dirty Circus, Pigeon Hole, and Innocent Bystanders, have laid a solid foundation selling tens of thousands of copies of their previous albums. With a live show far beyond the average rap concert, they have toured relentlessly and performed with the likes of the Roots, Black Eyed Peas, Jurassic 5, Blackalicious, De La Soul, Swollen Members, and the Living Legends. Sweatshop Union are on the rise.

Legendary Detroit emcee and original J Dilla collaborator Phat Kat brought the Detroit underground hip-hop sound to the forefront last year with Carte Blanche. Phat Kat will be in the Bay Area recording his new album Katakombz in September for Look Records and has agreed to bless the mic on this night. The Bay Area’s own DJ Design will be backing Phat Kat on the turntables. Design produced the first two Foreign Legion albums and also remixed a track from the Beastie Boys album Hello Nasty called “Negotiation Limerick File.” DJ Design’s new album Jetlag hits stores this month.

Celsius 7, one half of the veteran Bay Area hip-hop group Psychokinetics, has released his first solo project entitled WANDERLUST. Witness live why Celsius’ writings have earned him a John Lennon Songwriting Award and also runner-up in the Independent Music Awards. By crafting intelligent, fun and heartfelt rhymes backed by the bangin’ beats of some of the world’s best producers, Celsius 7 and Psychokinetics have gained a loyal following from the U.S. to Europe to Japan and beyond.

CAMBO of The Instant Messengers
Unpretentious hip-hop that bleeps out testosteroned narcissism and puts a positive message in its place. Every song is a “slammer” with “break your neck” beats and jaw dropping rhymes designed to make the ladies move, and the fellas to raise a fist.
