THEESatisfaction is Cat and Stas. The pair live/laugh/love/dance and create in Seattle. They were one of the first hip hop acts signed to legendary indie music label Sub Pop. This might have been seen as a bit of a weird move for an indie music label… (Sub Pop is remembered as the epicentre for all things “alternative” in the 90s–they were the home of Nirvana among many others) …But really, good music is good music.
Take a listen to THEESatisfaction, though, and you can see why Sub Pop snapped up these two talented women. They are a potent mix of introspective Slam Poetry, Black Jazz and Sunday morning soul–100% hip hop. Listen to our chat.
THEESatisfaction “Do You Have Time?” In the words of THEESatisfaction: “A love song about pot, or is that a pot song about love?”
Also this week, I have some bonus music for you to enjoy.
Prohaize “American Visa” Prohaize, a 20-year-old Hip Hop artist based in Atlanta, emailed me this track. Gotta admire hustle.
Dave A vs Skrillex “Skrillehammer” Montreal-based producer Dave A took an interview with dub step god Skrillex and chopped it up over a beat to make Skrillex “rap.”
DZ Deathrays “Dollar Chills” (Cadence Weapon remix) And finally Canada’s Cadence Weapon is turning up everywhere these days. Even on a remix of one of my fav bands. Cadence W is currently on tour. Catch him when he blows thru your town. He is here in Vancouver Thursday. See you there!
