Editorial Review

This is the story of two lifelong French Canadian buddies -- one of whom is a PhD student at Columbia University -- who began producing underground hip-hop in the late '90s and then discovered a formula for success. Their cheeky, infectiously fun dance music is plucked out of the jheri-curl funk era and served to a youthful audience grown accustomed to hearing drum machines and retro synths merged into their indie pop.
