Two life long best friends and college roommates at their finest create the dynamic Hip-Hop band, Anti-Crew.
The founding members, FlareThaRebel and DJ Eternal, came together at an early age in Kansas City, MO with a passion for reckless behavior, video games, and of course, music. After making a dent in their home scene, being noted as one of the "Top 30 artist under the age of 30" by the Kansas City Star, the duo decided to expand their career and move to Chicago, IL to attend Columbia College.
College dorm life would unfold a cascade of wild stories to tell, but most importantly it paired Pat Attack with DJ Eternal and Cambo with FlareThaRebel. Soon after, Archangel, also a student at Columbia College, hooked up with Anti-Crew as well. Friendship was natural for the five members as they developed a chemistry that revolved around each other's diverse musical backgrounds-a staple which is reflected in the band's cross-genre sound.
Pat Attack, the shredding and melodic guitarist, Archangel, the versatile and proficient drummer, and DJ Eternal, are all sons of professional musicians, ranging from Classical, to Rock, to Jazz. DJ Eternal, known as the multi-tasking machine, contributes vocals (rapping and singing), turntablism, and guitar on record as well as during live performances. Lead vocalist/MC FlareThaRebel, born with a culturally enriched Hip-Hop spirit in Brooklyn, NY has a rhyming method both socially stimulating and entertaining enough to make heads nod. And bassist Cambo, is a "funkaholic" who lives by the grooves of bass rhythm.
Anti-Crew's music, though Hip-Hop at the core, has a range which redefines boundaries. Their style encompasses the essence of live instrumentation blended well with original sampling. Combine that with harmonizing hooks and lyrical content that seamlessly moves from raw and heavy hitting, to conscious, to witty story telling and you have an eclectic sound ready to capture your ear.
The band is also known for their highly energetic live performances. Anti-Crew delivers a show that makes the crowd jump, scream, and literally toss people into the air.
College life, musical prominence, and a passionate drive is the force that has brought Anti-Crew together. Their charisma and unique style continues to win new fans and has brought the band an early taste of success that has only just begun.
