As a new photographer around Hy-Tekk I wasn’t sure what to expect at these shows, but I have yet to leave one anything less than elated. WE HAD A BLAST! Just another baller night at the Granada in great company with great music.
KC natives Aplsoz and Gee Watts teamed up for an epic collaboration of the minds on their new single called “In the Music”. Where sonic force meets crisp, vibrant verses you can find these two forging fully captivating, bass soaked raptronica. Coming off of his last release “Watts Up,” that featured Kendrick Lamar Gee Watts is showing more and more promise to be one of the top emcees around. Keep an ear out for more tunes from Aplsoz & Gee Watts!!

Noisia and Foreign Beggars fans plug in; I Am Legion, the union of these heavy hitting producers have unleashed their self-titled, 16 track, debut album. Released on Division Recording and Par Excellence (OWSLA in the United States) these guys are getting a lot of support in the music industry. Single ‘Make Those Move’ streamed 330,000 plays in the first three weeks and a music video on the way for single ‘Choosing for You’.
“I Am Legion nods to rap’s erstwhile forays into electronica, absorbing elements of its present whilst laying out a reassuringly disturbed vision of what’s to come. Miss this collaboration at your own peril.”
I Am Legion is Orifice Vulgatron, Nik Roos, Metropolis, Thijs de Vlieger, and Martijn van Sonderen.
