A State of Mind Intro:
ASM are one of Europe's fastest up and coming Hip Hop acts who are rapidly making their mark on the scene through their "original and boundary-pushing" live shows and have been deemed "leaders of the new school" by Dj Vadim
(BBE). The Live showcase is rooted in a unique form of beat production by Fade, DJ Sativo and Lando who work together on stage with an Akai MPC, Roland SP-404, MicroKorg Keyboard, Flute, Melodica, Korg Kaos Pad, Theremin, a Technics Turntable and a Scratch mixer to create Soul, Reggae and Funk infused Hip Hop soundscapes live on stage. The music they create forms the perfect backdrop for the talented lyricists, FP the Funky Poet and Green-T, to get busy and experiment with rhymes and back and forth flows in ways that are surely unique in the world of underground hip hop today.
ASM recently featured on the single 'Positively Inclined' from French producer Wax Tailor's album 'Hope & Sorrow' which has already sold over 40,000 copies worldwide. Their music video for Positively Inclined was also been taken by MTV France and they are held 6 weeks in the top 40 French national airplay charts, which is a rare achievement as an underground conscious hip hop group. They are also releasing a Japan Only version of their EP 'Cosmic Flavour' in March.
They are currently working on their debut album 'Platypus Funk' which is set to feature Dj Vadim
(BBE Music), Sadat X (Brand Nubian) Wax Tailor (decon), Wildchild (stones throw), Kid Kanevil (first word) and Bonobo
ASM have toured extensively over the past 2 years throughout Germany, the UK, France, Switzerland, Holland, The Czech Republic, Poland and Lithuania to promote their vision of live hip hop sound. ASM have performed with the likes of Pharaoh Monch, J-Live, Wax Tailor, DJ Format, Masta Ace, Dj Vadim
