Dusted Dons on CD

'The kings of what? The kings of style'. The Dusted Dons, New York's hottest live hip hop band, are on a mission to stamp the earth with their original sound. This six gunned superpower brings it back to the days when the breakbeats broke your back and the mc's foremost job was rockin a crowd. With a high energy and complex sound, the D-Dons have been burning down roofs all over the East Coast and West Coast. D-Dons are hometown regulars at New York City and Philadelphia hot spots (Knitting Factory, Downtime, Joe's Pub, Trocadero, Five Spot etc.) and the product demand and positive response has been overwhelming. This hip hop wrecking crew was formed at the end of 2000 by Charlie Chan and Govone with the idea of creating the ultimate hip hop coalition with all the beasts of the best they had encountered on their musical journeys. Dons are fronted by two of the most original and hardworkin mc's/ musicians and have over twenty years combined experience in writing rhymes, making songs, and cipher slaughtering, from freestyles at the Nuyorican (L.E.S.) or battling at the Roxy for MTV's MC Battle, a mic is never passed up. Veteran-like mic control, original flow and the best back n forths ever are manipulated to compliment each mc's unique deliveries and conceptual range. The Dons' sound is branded by an incredible female vocalist, named R.A.W., who has worked with George Clinton and toured with Bernie Worrell. This jaw-dropper brings the house down every time! The boom-bap, b-boy friendly breaks are dropped by WUBA, an amazingly talented live drummer/ human SP12 (ex-WooWarriors tour drummer) with more chops than the butcher. The Dons' mad scientist, MPC DOG, is a sampler/ bass/ live horn guru, who has developed a secret formula for addictive basslines and intoxicating grooves. The force is fueled by the most creative, battle ready turntablists in the New York hip hop circuit. DJ Melski's style is more Hendrix than FunkFlex, with a huge presence. After hearing the 10,000th fan demand, in June '04 the Dons formed FloSpot Records and released their first 12' vinyl single feat. TameOne (formerly of Artifacts)..The single had an immediate buzz and became Undergroundhiphop.com's top selling 12' for the month of August. With decent sales from the website, it has also sold out at many of the Dons' concerts. The single has gotten a good amount of undergroud/ college and satellite radio play as well as getting heavy rotation at many New York hip hop events. The street buzz and undeniablly dope music have earned the D-Dons opportunities to rock DJ Red Alert's Birthday Bash, at the world famous Soul Cafe in Manhattan, as well as the VH1 Save the Music benefit concert at the legendary Bowery Ballroom. One of the most memorable Dons' performance was at Lloyd Banks, Fat Joe and Jadakiss' concert at the Soverign Bank Arena in Trenton, NJ during the Hungry For More Tour stop there. Recent Dusted Dons shows have included guest performances by the Godfather Kool Herc, Cold Crush Brother GrandMaster Caz, Def Jux's C Rayz Walz & S.A. Smash, Breez Evahflowin, Percee P, and Killah Priest (Wu-Tang), They have recorded with Cold Crush Caz, Def Jux luminaries Camu Tao and Metro, as well as Swel 79 from Arsonists and Tame One (Weathermen/ Artifacts). D-Dons are also currently working on 'Slow Suicide Stimulus' project with Tame One. It is understood that the Dusted Dons will not be underground for much longer. Rich in talent, their high energy and passionate music oozes style. They are a new species born from the musical influence of a vast range of artists and era's with a unique blend of reality, relevance and originality. Straight up skills and a refusal to fail are keeping the Dusted Dons moving forward, breaking down barriers like a Sherman tank.
