Ugly Duckling profile

Ugly Duckling (Young Einstein, Dizzy Dustin and Andy Cooper) began in Long Beach, California in 1993.

They released 6 albums, embarked on countless tours, and developed a worldwide fanbase. In 2003 they even squeaked into the UK and German charts with their song A Little Samba. Labels have come and gone but fan support has remained solid. Ugly Duckling’s music has always been of the highest quality and their live show is a large part of their identity.

Ugly Duckling’s musical sound is a combination of late 80′s/early 90′s hip hop, funk, soul, and jazz with plenty of humor and high-spirited skillfulness from both lyricists and DJ. Audiences and critics have agreed over the years that Ugly Duckling’s brand of hip hop is unique and authentic while the stage show is always fun, exciting, and super tight. Comparable to groups like Jurassic 5, Pharcyde, and A Tribe Called Quest, the band knows how to make listeners feel good and has kept their musical authenticity throughout the years, avoiding the pitfalls and embarrassment of pop star ambition…

5kiem profile

5KIEM has been a beatmaker since 1994 influenced by artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock and J Dilla.

In the begining he collaborated with several french musicians, like the musical collective “Steus”, and participated in some mixtapes as well.

“We should not wait that the leading players of our culture disappear to pay tribute to them.” – 5KIEM
