SIMS
SIMS
Life and loss and dance parties. Sex and love and fractal math. Sims wrote More Than Ever last winter in the wake of some personally trying times: death and sickness in his immediate circle of friends and family. And he decided that the only acceptable answer to big loss is big joy—urgent, defiant, unapologetic joy. The thirteen tracks on More Than Ever capture Sims coming to, and living out, that conclusion.

Sims grew up in Minnesota, an active part of the busy and fiercely independent Minneapolis hip-­‐hop scene. In high school, he made friends with the classmates that would eventually become his cohorts in Doomtree—the seven-­‐member rap collective now responsible for some of this era’s most interesting, genre-­‐defying releases. Over the past decade Sims has released a host of projects, both as a solo artist (Lights Out Paris, Bad Time Zoo, Wild Life EP, Field Notes) and as a member of Doomtree (No Kings, All Hands, and many others.) He’s toured the world from Pittsburgh to Prague, playing festivals like Glastonbury, Riot Fest, and SXSW. He’s earned and re-­‐earned his reputation as a thoughtful artist with an unstoppable live show. (When he calls “both hands up-­‐-­‐now both feet up” rooms around the world have felt their floorboards flex as the entire crowd goes airborne.)

To create More Than Ever, Sims enlisted the unrelenting and adventurous production of Lazerbeak, Paper Tiger, and ICETEP. Sometimes take-­‐no-­‐prisoners, sometimes take-­‐the-­‐slow-­‐road, the drums are crushing and the soundscapes are expansive. After many long days and nights sequestered in his South Minneapolis basement, Sims emerged with the most honest first-­‐person account he’s ever recorded-­‐-­‐he wrestles with some demons, faces down his doubts, and allows us in on the dirty work of change and growth and revelation. But, true to form, he does it with swagger, wit, and bar-­‐crushing style. Huge ideas, concisely delivered over epic bangers without ever feeling overwrought. On songs like “Brutal Dance” and “OneHundred” Sims crafts an earnest mission statement while the razor sharp wordplay, insight, and quick quips prevent him from ever taking himself too seriously. The result is a 45-­‐minute rollercoaster through the highest highs, the lowest lows, and all of the love and hope between them.

Air Credits
AIR CREDITS is music from the not too distant future, when the planet’s water supply has all but ceased, the landscape turning to desert, the desert turning to wasteland. Radio stations worldwide have been transformed into climate controlled compounds, guarded heavily by their surrounding communities not only to maintain communique with the declining population, but to preserve music new and old— lest it expire with the planet.
Sean Anonymous
Sean Anonymous
Sean Anonymous has been hailed by critics and audiences for his relentless energy and enigmatic style. His crafty word play and humble honesty are a breath of fresh air in an industry clamoring for authentic messaging. In 2012 Sean released his first solo debut, the Anonymo E.P. Anonymo displayed his full range of talent, quickly gaining attention from college radio and hip-hop fans nationwide. It rose to #5 on the CMJ charts and remained there for twelve straight weeks, leading to a highlight slot at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York. The momentum hasn't stopped since. He's achieved everything from a strictly DIY standpoint, building success off pure passion, drive, and raw ability.
Travellers Music
Travellers Music
Travellers Music is a diverse independent hip-hop collective known for attacking a wide variety of subject matter, while maintaining a high-energy, action packed show. Incorporating carefully placed rhyme schemes ranging from aggressive and outspoken to heartfelt and soulful, they strive to embody all aspects of conscious thought. Straying away from being consumed by the shallow and generic hip-hop has allowed them to foster unbridled creativity and continue to grow as a collective and explore new ground. Inspiration drawn from underground roots and the Golden Age era has heavily influenced their sound, although they remain to keep an up-to-date, introspective portfolio. Travellers Music live show is accompanied by original, handcrafted beats all produced in house. Old school sampling techniques are generally relied on and while each artist’s style remains distinct & unique, they all exemplify that classic Boom Bap standard. When Travellers Music hits the stage, multiple styles unite and integrate into a cohesive, engaging performance that has harbored significant local and national recognition, which has provided them with opportunities to perform across the Midwest and at various music festivals including SXSW.

Joining forces in 2011, Travellers Music was the end result of abstract artistic personalities being brought together in order to create a new distinctive sound. 4th Eye leads the live show from behind the decks, providing carefully placed cuts. Just Enough Food and Alltrueistic keep the crowd moving exchanging rapid-fire rhyme schemes and infectious, relevant lyrical content. All members incorporate the proper use of analog drum machine and synthesizer into the set, providing an interactive live element that is exhilarating and improvisational.

Travellers Music has performed alongside hip-hop legends Rakim and Grand Master Caz and shared the stage alongside many national acts including Grouch and Eligh, Amp Live, Toki Wright (Rhymesayers), Cage, The ReMINDERS, Illogic, Kristoff Krane, Psalm One, Sadistik, Carnage the Executioner, Sole & Louis Logic. Travellers music track "My Complex" was featured on the Rapfam Vol. 5 Mixtape in 2012, which included appearances from underground heavy-hitters Louis Logic and Sadistik. In addition, they went on the Short Circuit Tour with Toki Wright (Rhymesayers) Carnage the Executioner and Kristoff Krane. In 2013 Travellers Music qualified for the Westword Best of the West contest as Semi finalists. They also joined Denver local Rhyme Progression for the Summer Solstice midwest tour.

In 2014, Travellers Music released their debut album for a nearly sold out sold crowd at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado. Travellers Music self-titled debut album is independently distributed on I-tunes and Amazon Music. In addition, the album is currently streaming on Pandora and Spotify. In 2014 Travellers Music also teamed up with Blurred Pictures who filmed two extraordinary music videos for the album including “Story of a Junkie” and “My Complex”. In 2015 Travellers Music gained national recognition being selected by SpokesBUZZ to perform at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Travellers Music also went on two successful independent tours in 2015. A tour to SXSW in March was followed by a sold out headlining homecoming show in Denver. The collective also joined Whiskey Blanket on the Summer Sampler Tour, which ended with a performance alongside the God Emcee himself- Rakim. Travellers Music performed many other festivals in 2015 including FoCoMX7, Shredded Beats Music festival & The Munchie Cup.

Travellers Music is set to release Judgment Day, their sophomore crew album early 2018. Fans can expect an official vinyl release and new music videos to match. Travellers Music will also be returning to SXSW and touring extensively throughout the year. Judgment Day will be the 20th independent release from the collective.
