QUANNUM MC's (Blackalicious, Latyrx, Gift of Gab, Lyrics Born, Chief Xcel & Lateef The Truthspeaker) Website
One of the West Coast's most legendary Hip-Hop collectives make their long awaited reunion this December 30th at the Nectar Lounge in Seattle: Quannum. Come celebrate the new year at this not-to-miss show.Both a label (Quannum Projects) and a collaborative concern, Quannum brought together the brightest talents from the former SoleSides label: Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truth Speaker (from Latyrx), Chief Xcel and Gift of Gab (from Blackalicious), and DJ Shadow. An artist-run label, SoleSides was founded in 1992 at KDVS, the college radio station for the University of California-Davis, with most of the above artists involved, plus mentor DJ Zen (Jeff Chang). Its first release, DJ Shadow's 1993 slab "Entropy," gained a worldwide profile after tastemaker James Lavelle released it on his Mo' Wax label. SoleSides hit with further releases like Blackalicious' Melodica EP (also licensed to Mo' Wax) and the self-titled debut single by Latyrx. By 1997, SoleSides had become Quannum Projects, and the label debuted with a masterstroke, the brilliant collaborative Quannum Spectrum, including a bounty of West Coast underground talent -- Jurassic 5, Divine Styler, Souls of Mischief, and Poets of Rhythm. Quannum Projects continued releasing records, including full-lengths for Blackalicious (NIA) and Poets of Rhythm (Discern/Define), a single by Spectrum contributor Joyo Velarde, and most rewarding of all, the two-disc history lesson SoleSides Greatest Bumps. Don't miss your chance to see these legendary MC's, each prominent forces in Hip-Hop in their own right, "form like Voltron" for an unforgettable night of collaborations you won't soon forget.
