2015 has proven to be a strong pre-cursor for Constant Deviants celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut 12″ single release “Competition Catch Speed Knots” next year.

They released their “Swiss Banks” movie with European associates SWC Records in March, and then of course their fourth studio album in six years, “Avant Garde”, on 12th May which has received widespread international media & press coverage over the past couple of months.

In April they launched their “3Stylez” video series, a trilogy of filmed freestyles from which the final episode will be released shortly, and their first official single “Breathin” reached #1 in the US college radio charts. They have just released the second single “End All Be All” which is enjoying an impressive amount of airtime while also filming a new movie and spending time back in the lab recording a new project

The latest reviews of their album both come from British online publications SBTV and DataTransmission

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.

M.I., now based in Baltimore, was also one of the guests talking hip hop & politics with SiriusXM’s Jon Leiberman for his new online tv show “Rapping with Leiberman”.

CD-HipHopFoundation

New Jersey / Baltimore duo Constant Deviants have worked together in various ways since the mid 90’s, and after a time spent operating within the major label sector, they came back together in 2009 to set up Six2Six Records, and since then have released 3 studio albums and various orther affiliated projects.

Their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” releases on 12th May, and Lafayette Hicks – himself involved with hip hop since the good ‘ol days – ran the rule over it for online The Hip Hop Foundation

Afforded a 4 star rating, the review also outlines some of the duo’s back story and notes Emcee M.I.’s lyricism “There’s great storytelling here, words of wisdom, braggadocia, a bit of thuggery…..something for everyone” and on DJ Cutt’s production “His beats have that golden era quality to them but by the same token, they sound fresh and not like some recycled 90’s tracks. I also liked how he incorporated scratches into the tracks, cutting up everything from Onyx to Slick Rick. He even got in a line from my favorite old school movie Beat Street, so I was won over just from that.

It’s a really in depth review by someone who obviously has a lot of experience in the genre, and you can read it all HERE

Constant Deviants have also filmed a special freestyle trilogy. The first from the “3Stylez” series was launched last week, with Episodes 2 & 3 coming soon. Check out “Heavy Artillery” on Vimeo

CD-HipHopVibe

In the lead up to the release of their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” on 12th May, Constant Deviants duo DJ Cutt and Emcee M.I. sat down with US online Hip Hop Vibe to chop it up about the new release and various other issues.

Also on the agenda, the pair spoke about their near 20 years in the industry and how they first came to work together, the early lyricists who influenced them and they give their views on today’s commerical rap. They also discuss their time in the major sector, working with manager Mark Pitts, Arista and Roc-A-Fella and how going back to being independent and setting up their own label has been of benefit to them, and how the business model can be of benefit to other independent artists
