Constant Deviants release their new album “Avant Garde” on 12th May through their own Six2Six label. It will be available worldwide on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of the release of their debut 12″ classic single “Competition Catch Speed Knots” when they first came together by performing at NY college parties. Then based in Brooklyn and New Jersey, they also worked on seperate projects for Arista and Roc-A-Fella before reforming specifically as a group in 2009 and setting up their own label

Their focus both as artists and a label on the traditional elements of hip hop helped them build strongly with the European market where there has always been a long standing appreciation for this style. This led to developing a working relationship with Swiss label SWC Records, releasing projects under the name Trilateral Commission, most recently the “Swiss Banks” movie. The soundtrack uses their album with the visual concept based on the best selling novel of the same name. M.I. plays an acting role in the film.

Over the past few months, there has been widespread interest in the release and their “3Stylez” video series, a trilogy of freestyles showing M.I. and DJ Cutt performing live and direct as hip hop intended. The first two videos “Heavy Artillery” and “Art of War” were released in April. Their single “Breathin” registered #1 in the college radio charts and featured in the UK’s print publication DJ Magazine, with a subsequent bonus joint “Just Make Music” also getting regular spins. They’ve already featured in various international publications with much more to come.

There’s just over 2 weeks to go until Constant Deviants release their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” on the 12th May.

It will be made available on vinyl, CD and digital formats through their own Six2Six Records label.

2016 will mark the 20th anniversary of their debut 12″ release “Competition Catch Speed Knots”, and while they spent 8 years working on seperate projects for Arista and Roc-A-Fella, they’ve been prolific since reforming officially in 2009 and setting up their own imprint. Albums, singles, releases with their colleagues in Switzerland SWC Records as Trilateral Commission, Emcee M.I. himself has recorded 4 albums in the past year and DJ Cutt has been producing various projects for the label.

The Baltimore & New Jersey duo, once based in Brooklyn in the earlier years, have been busy in the past few weeks conducting interviews with a host of international publications. The latest to appear on the internet is with French online “Hip Hop Breath” where they discuss their album, their work and time spent in France and Switzerland, their influences and thoughts on the current rap scene. M.I. then also speaks on recent events in the USA which has led to much publicized racial tensions and the role artists can play to address this.
