Dangerflow

Take one part hip-hop, one part soul, add a dash of Afro-Cuban drum rhythms, shake well and enjoy. These carefully-blended ingredients make up the sound of South Florida's most exciting & refreshing hip-hop band, Dangerflow.

Dangerflow brings its hip-hop beat to the crowd with a cocktail of live drums, funky guitars, and jazzy horns. Led by both a conscious wordsmith and soulful vocalist, the danceable sound doesn't come without substance. With influences that range from Gym Class Heroes to a Miami version of The Roots, the group makes sure to include an inspiring message in nearly every song but also incorporate humor and clever wordplay. Dangerflow has been perfecting its signature sound since 2007 and released it's debut album, "Win, Lose Or Die" in Fall 2011.

While the band has been busy rocking crowds and creating new music, they’ve also been using their music to affect social change. In 2009 they performed at the United States Conference on HIV/AIDS and have since been collaborating with Miami’s urban youth agencies to inspire young artists and activists. Dangerflow’s accomplishments were formally recognized when they received the Miami New Times 2009 Best Caribbean Band award in addition to the Miami New Times Readers’ Poll Best Band Award in 2011.

Most recently, Dangerflow's hit single, "The Crown" was featured in the Miami Heat documentary "Into The Fire", NBA Countdown on ABC, ESPN Sportscenter, in a Monster Energy video for X Games 18 & in a commercial for the 2012 Australian Open Tennis Championship. Miami Heat fans have also been able to see an NBA announcement video featuring Dangerflow at the American Airlines Arena during every home game of the 2009-2012 NBA regular seasons & NBA Finals.
