Andromeda is Hip-Hop at its best. Combining the basic elements of Hip-Hop Music - namely a DJ and an emcee - with the desire to see where the artform can progress without contradicting its own rules, DJ Polaris and Brainstorm draw from the same source which has made rap culture one of the leading influences in the world today.
Having formed in 1993 primarily as a production team and duo (known then as "Original School"), the 2 member crew have taken their family ties, life experiences, and musical backgrounds to craft a sound that is purely their own. With a style reminiscent of the so-called "Golden Era" of rap music, Andromeda uses hard beats, crisp melodies, and inciteful subject matter to draw their audience into a world of relentless lyricism and turntable mastery that is innovative without breaking the spoken rules of Hip-Hop Culture. They will tell you themselves that "originality and fun" are at the core of "The Andromeda Sound", along with addressing social issues that affect masses of people today and generations to come.
Having themselves witnessed and experienced nearly every era of rap, DJ Polaris and Brainstorm choose to be different in this current mix of "cookie-cutter" mainstream acts and underground cult followings by simply making the music they want to make - a simple formula which has gained them not only a core audience of fans, but also the respect of musicians from numerous genres of music. Whether in their high-energy live show or on any of their various releases, Andromeda strives to achieve their goal of producing "timeless" Hip-Hop Music that you can feel.
"The Need" - A musical conversation with Andromeda about the state of Hip-Hop amongst global affairs today. With Brainstorm on the mic, superb production from DJ Polaris sets the landscape for clean, socially-conscious lyrics that not only move heads, but also stimulate minds.

The result is pure Hip-Hop satisfaction. Once you've experienced it for yourself, you will agree... Andromeda has what you need.
