Travellers Music (Album Release) / Blueprint / Chenay / Maulskull
Add to Calendar
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.
With his fourth studio album, King No Crown, critically acclaimed mc/producer Blueprint has continued his constant evolution by combining the boom-bap chops of his 2014 project Respect the Architect (Weightless Recordings) with the genre-defying aesthetic of his 2011 album Adventures in Counter-Culture (Rhymesayers Entertainment). The end result is 60-minutes of uninterrupted music that effortlessly transitions from song to song without a single moment of pause or silence, a meticulous production effort handled entirely by Blueprint. Lyrically, Blueprint provides his trademark honesty–paying tribute to hip-hop, lost loved ones, and the legacy of fallen artists Eyedea and J. Dilla–making King No Crown his most personal and conceptual project to date.
