Omerta-Da-What

US online Da-What run a series “Five Finger Discount” where they ask artists to highlight five of their tracks or videos for special mention, the story behind them and why they currently have a specific relevance and importance to them.

In the latest edition just published, they spoke with Constant Deviants. The group will release a new concept album “Omerta” on June 28th, and reveal the linkage between the new album and last year’s “Avant Garde”, specifically the role their tour of Switzerland played in how they were devised. They also speak more on the deliberate differences in style of production between the two albums and provide more background into how last year’s single “Standards” came to be remixed by The Beatminerz.

All the track streams and videos they selected are included in the feature which can be read HERE

CD-TheBeeshine

Filmed on 12th May 2015, the actual day of release of their fourth album “Avant Garde”, Constant Deviants sat down with The Beeshine in New York while they were in town for a series of media and radio interviews.

For fans of the group, this footage is also a bit of a collectors item as both Emcee M.I…no it’s not DeNiro in Raging Bull ;)…and DJ Cutt discuss a variety subjects from their history, rarer than some of the 12″‘s in Cutt’s crates!!!

IMG_7195ba

They talk about their very earliest days getting into music, M.I. explaing his family’s musical background and Cutt reflecting on the days of Red Alert on Kiss and hearing LL Cool J’s “Rock the Bells” for the first time.

Moving on to first performing, M.I. recalls the days of hip hop culture first arriving with breakdancin crews and the first freestyle sessions at a record store in Baltimore’s Saratoga Street, while Cutt reveals all about destroying his father’s turntable trying to scratch for the first time, then saving up lunch money to get his first decks….without a mixer….

However it was the progression for both to NY state, with Cutt at school for music engineering that the two met in the 90’s and performed together for the first time at college parties.

The pivotal point came with the release of their first 12″ Competition Catch Speed Knots, and Cutt reveals he still has a picture of DJ Premier buying a copy at Beat Street. M.I. explains his development from initially a battle rap style delivery to a writer of reality rhymes, and both speak about the benefits they’ve enjoyed of travelling to Europe, learning business skills from the industry and how they’d like to be considered in years to come.
