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.

Been a busy time for the veteran Baltimore & New Jersey duo. Recently they released the film “Swiss Banks” with their partners in Switzerland SWC Records, completed filming of their freestyle series “3Stylez” and have been conducting interviews with a whole range of international media.

They also go into detail about the joint “Yup” they recorded with Rick Ross and N.O.R.E. in 2008, and provide details about how the film “Swiss Banks” was created, and give their thoughts on the current state of mainstream and independent hip hop as well as what has contributed most to their longevity in the game
