Blue Devil Productions is proud to present Guante and Big Cats! with The Tribe. The artists are scheduled to perform at the University of Wisconsin-Stout on Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 8 p.m. in the Underground, located on the lower level of the Memorial Student Center.

Producer, musician, and visual artist Big Cats!, will be performing with Minneapolis emcee/slam poet Guante. Taking advantage of a multitude of instruments and sounds, producer Big Cats! blends his atmospheric hip hop perfectly over whomever he is collaborating with. Drawing upon influences such as RJD2, Prefuse 73, or even Dosh, Big Cats! beats and production tastefully weave through instrumental passages while creating memorable hooks. Guante features insightful, socially conscious lyrics, expanding upon themes of political unrest and personal turmoil. His smooth delivery is not demanding of your attention, but that doesn’t mean that his words should fall on deaf ears.

Minneapolis/Menomonie newcomers The Tribe, featuring members TruthBeTold and DJ Pete, are steadily gaining notoriety for their upbeat and intelligent hip hop. Relying heavily on the use of samples, DJ Pete’s production is a nod back to other eras of hip hop and rap. The equable style of TruthBeTold features lyrics that are both discerning and honest. Still performing off their March EP release, Supply and Demand, the group demonstrates a more polished and though-out effort that will certainly gain more attention in the local hip hop scene. The future of Twin Cities hip hop has worthy disciples in The Tribe.

This event is sponsored by Blue Devil Productions of the University of Wisconsin-Stout and is FREE to all. Go to bdp.uwstout.edu for more information.
