ElevtrTrax Of The Day – Swet Shop Boys – T5
“Do you always get a random check when you rock the stubble? Than step up and take a listen! Hell if you’ve got the privilege of not having a target on your back, pull up a chair. Swet Shop Boys made a recent appearance at Function, a South Asian Diaspora event held at Baby’s All Right, and features two of the MC’s holding a beacon for diaspora art, a key revolution of the movement happening right now in New York City.
We’re honored to stand next to these guys and all of the brilliance pouring out of the brown community; from the sustenance Queens gave hip hop MC Heems of Das Racist, the sparkling ambient interwoven guitars of Humeysha, the indie media folk like us at ElevtrTrax, via founder Nadeem Gibran Salaam, and HYFN (a diaspora focused media blog run by Atif Ateeq), to the cold London streets by way of actor/MC Riz Ahmed as Riz MC. “T5″ is the latest from the teams paring.”
