From San Francisco's favorite underground innovator Defeye and one of Chicago's dirtiest producers DJ Rise, comes Prescience, a combination of West Coast grit and Chi-town grime. A first of its kind Dubstep/Hip Hop collaboration, Prescience fearlessly offers the best of both worlds. Poignant rugged lyricism and ruthlessly brutal bass driven beats. Debuting to the European radio audience in August and currently touring the United States Prescience has established the Rogue State Collective as one of the fastest up and coming crews worldwide.
As the voice of Prescience Defeye brings his trademarked brand of raw lyrical relevance over Rise's signature Dubstep rhythms with a fresh perspective on life, music, and the struggle for progress. Unsympathetic to the death of Hip Hop, the stanch veteran who has shared stages with Pete Rock, Planet Asia, Andre Nickatina, and Mickey Avalon demonstrates his range on Prescience providing an unprecedented honesty in a genre dominated by image. Running the gamut with revolutionary anthems like "Coup D’etat in a Coup DeVille" and "Clownsuits," satirical crowd pleasers like "Make Me" and "Mechanical Instrumentals," and lyrical bangers like "DJ" and "Big Boy" Prescience offers a well rounded listening experience for listeners who have grown tired of tritely conscious cookie cutter Hip Hop.
On the other side of the console DJ Rise provides a patented brand of production that only comes from a decade of experience as the heartbeat of the party behind the tables. Creating all original rhythms from scratch DJ Rise beats are unmistakable. A student of Drum 'n' Bass, Jungle, and House music throughout the international rave scene Rise has been all over the world as a DJ on the way to his first album as a producer.
With machine gun lyricism, heat seeking scratches, and atomic bass Prescience should be loaded with caution. Damaging subwoofers and sucka emcees alike, the RS crew has given the entire industry a sweet new style to bite. Just remember...We did it first.
