LISTEN: Bisc1 - Paranoid

STREAM Bisc1 - Paranoid (MP3) (In SDSU Player)

If you dig Brooklyn Underground Hip Hop you may want to find yourself at the Lower East Side's Mercury Lounge tonight at 7.30pm for Bisc1's album release show for When Electric Night Falls. Also on the bill are Junk Science, Iller Than Theirs, Cool Calm Pete, and Loer Velocity. Presented by the good folks over at the Embedded Music family.

A native of Massachusetts by way of Connecticut, Bisc1 moved to NYC 10 years ago and quickly made a name for himself DJ'ing at clubs, distributing mixtapes, and in graffiti circles. Soon, Bisc1 picked up the mic and won several battle raps including the Whose Line Is It monthly at the Knitting Factory in NYC 4 consecutive months in a row. His debut release, The Basics EP (2006), gained the favorable attention of music critics and his subsequent release, The Stay Up Project mixtape (2007) was downloaded over 5000 times. Bisc's penchant for capturing our chaotic reality with his narratives, images, and collaborations has earned him a reputation as one of the most honest and creative artists of today. Going beyond music, Bisc1 is also an accomplished graphic artist. He's done cover art, designed promotional materials and spearheaded art direction for artists such as Aesop Rock, The Perceptionists, C-Rayz-Walz, Murs, El-P, and others. His art has been featured in several magazines and art house coffee table books and in galleries, such as Danny Simmon's Rush Arts Gallery. When Electric Night Falls, for which Bisc did all the art direction, will be available now on Embedded Music.
