KC & MC Astro drop EP on Weapons Of Choice
This is Dancefloor DnB at it’s finest!! KC and MC Astro are touching down with 4 absolute bangers. Two original tracks and two VIP mixes. Heavy rhymes and rolling beats come together and make a perfect combination.
The DJ and Production force Kevin Cunningham, a.k.a. KC, started his career alongside DJ Tik Tak as part the Baseheads crew in Cleveland, Ohio. Kevin’s precise mixing skills and turntable trickery quickly earned him a reputation of being a commodity to watch. In an effort to gain independence from the local scene which held him, he decided to migrate to Chicago where he had landed a prestigious job in the DJ Mega-store, Supreme Records, located in the downtown Wicker Park area. His placement at Supreme as head of ordering for Drum and Bass served the Chicago community with a dedicated and up to date selection of import jungle music, something unheard of prior to his arrival.
KC, soon after arriving to the windy city, began work on attaining production skills that rivaled most of his continental peers. He found an early outlet for his material on Canvas Recordings, the drum ‘n’ bass outpost of Bad Boy Bill’s Mix Connection Music empire. That was only the beginning. Since then, Kevin has accomplished releases on elite labels such as Human Imprint, Nemesis, Mainframe, Symmetry, and Eatbrain. With no signs of slowing, the future continues to look bright for KC.
Since landing in Dallas from his home state of Minnesota, Denzil Chamblis, aka MC Astro has been tearin’ up mics and rockin’ stages. MC Astro is making noise like never before, though he has been a key player in the Texas underground hip hop and electronic scene for over a decade.
Astro had a humble start, freestyling on the mic alongside Dallas veteran DJ Phooka at the legendary Battletech drum and bass weekly. Since then, he has graced the stage with just about every major drum and bass artist he has crossed paths with, in Dallas, Austin, Miami, and San Francisco. MC Astro’s first major project was with the Dallas based production and promotion company D.A.P. – the Dirty Alien Project, where he learned the basics of studio and stage performances. Though his musical roots are drum and bass, MC Astro is no stranger to crossing boundaries and genres. He has appeared on several releases in the House world, including a feature on Fat Boy Slim‘s world renowned Southern Fried Records, alongside fellow Texans Granite & Phunk.
Now the two artists have joined up for their ‘Night Time Rollin’ EP’. We premiere ‘Night Time Rollin’ VIP’ today which is a steppy roller. The EP is out tomorrow (22nd April) on Weapons Of Choice Recordings. Check it out below and grab a copy from here
