B&SCover

A hip hop outfit delivering an album that demands our attention, deservedly and unreservedly getting all of mine” begins Simon Redley’s 4 star review of the new Constant Deviants album “Avant Garde” in the May issue of Blues & Soul Magazine.

One of the UK’s longest running publications covering hip hop, soul and r&b, the magazine published quarterly is in stores throughout England now and also available to buy internationally direct from www.bluesandsoul.com

AOW

Emcee M.I. and producer DJ Cutt celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut 12″ single release “Competition Catch Speed Knots” next year, and they have warmed up for that in impressive style in part due to the extensive international media coverage of their fourth album swhich released on 12th May.

They also released their movie Swiss Banks earlier in 2015, a collaborative project under the name Trilateral Conspiracy with their associates in Switzerland “SWC Records” combining their album and best selling novel of the same name. With M.I. in an acting role, the album provided the soundtrack, the novel the visual direction.

3Stylez2aa

In April they launched their “3Stylez” series, a trilogy of freestyle videos rooted in the traditional concept of one mic and two turntables, and their single “Breathin” reached #1 in the US college radio charts.

While in NYC to promote the album’s release, they appeared on Beatminerz Radio with Smokin Aces and DJ Bazarro. You will be hearing a special Beatminerz remix of their most recent single End All Be All shortly. Here’s the original

The veteran east coast duo who originate from Brooklyn and Baltimore with a little bit of New Jersey thrown into the mix are currently filming a new movie “Six2Six” named after the label they founded. They will also be returning to the lab soon to begin recording new material

The album Avant Garde is available from Six2Six Records in digital, CD and limited vinyl formats, all of which can be bought HERE

CD-Hype

A few weeks ago, Emcee M.I. from Constant Deviants sat down with journalist Roberta Lampley, and the subsequent feature published in The Hype Magazine takes an in depth look into how the group operates in the greater context of life as an independent.

The duo released their fourth studio album “Avant Garde” on 12th May through Six2Six Records, a label M.I. co-owns and runs. The interview delves deeper into the group’s earlier days and touches upon their time with major labels Arista and Roc-A-Fella before returning to the independent fold and beginning their own label.

ConstantDeviants

They discuss their marketing strategy with a brand very much rooted in the traditional Golden Era but with a modern day approach, the rise in vinyl sales, the importance of physical product and how they developed an overseas presence particularly in Europe. The theme in the interview is the wealth of experience M.I. has from his two decades in hip hop having seen the industry on both sides of the Major / Indie coin. The knowledge is likely to be useful to all artists and labels starting up today.

They finish by talking about the new album, how it was devised and how it represents a duo with an almost symbiotic understanding of each other that produces, as the journalist writes, a feel from start to finish of “a cypher with your DJ, and the DJ kept changing the beats“.

For fans of Constant Deviants and those with an interest in the mechanics of operating as an independent artist or label in what would be classified as “real hip hop” today, the interview makes for excellent reading.

With initial assistance from DoItAll, the group regenerated the concept of unifying and representing Jersey hip hop while forming in the past couple of years, and the nature of the album is testament to this aim
