Chemicals, nitro glycerine and gas will blow up when you put them
together. The same is said about Hip Hop's newest dynamic duo, Perfeck
Strangers! Joining forces after years of blessing eardrums as impeccably
brilliant soloists, veteran Toronto emcees Dan-e-o and Promise are now
tackling the world of music as a tandem. |
Dan-e-o first came into prominence with his debut single, "Dear Hip Hop".
Released through EMI on Beat Factory's RapEssentials Volume One in 1996,
the track is documented as a "Canadian Hip Hop classic"! Even without
major mainstream notoriety, Dan-e-o's subsequent solo albums, The Book of
Daniel (2000) and See No Evil, Hear No Evil (2004) have cemented his
reputation as one of the world's most elite emcees.
Known for his potent lyrical content, Promise focuses primarily on life,
love and the consciousness of mankind and is certainly no stranger to the
microphone. His debut solo album, More Than Music (2008), boasts guest
appearances by Montell Jordan, Elzhi of Slum Village, Royce Da 5'9" and
more. Promise's sophomore effort, Awakening (2011), further highlights his
incredible prowess as a rap artist and songwriter. The LP's debut video
"Against The Odds" dropped in December 2011.
It's easy to say that Perfeck Strangers are an unlikely pair, but when
listening to their music you would think they have been rhyming together
for years. Both accomplished rappers in their own rights, their union
presents a "perfeck" melding of talent in the vein of Hip Hop's most
heralded duos, such as Black Star, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest,
Little Brother and even Jay-Z & Kanye West. Dan-e-o and Promise have even
been compared to legendary tag-teams like EPMD and Das EFX for the way
they effortlessly flip lines back and forth with each other.
In the summer of 2010, Dan-e-o and Promise's first single as Perfeck
Strangers was leaked to the internet. Entitled "Work To Do", the Isley
Brothers-inspired track takes a comical approach to discussing the duo's
struggles in the rap game. The release also includes an appearance by Hip
Hop heavyweight, Drake and the song's YouTube post garnered thousands of
plays within days of it being leaked.
The im-Perfeck spelling of the word "perfect" in the group's name speaks
to their admittance that the two are mortals, not without their
shortcomings. Acknowledging a higher power as both their life source and
primary inspiration, the duo has set out on a mission to provide the world
with what they consider a much needed resurgence of substance-heavy music.
Perfeck Strangers' highly-anticipated debut music video, "Ghetto" dropped
to critical acclaim in November 2011. It is the first from the group's
debut album, Series Premiere, which was released worldwide in March 2012
with distribution via URBNET Records. The hit track can also be found on
URBNET Records' Underground Hip-Hop Volume 7.
The album's follow-up single and video "Stay Me" dropped in May 2012! The
bouncy banger is also a featured single on URBNET Records' URBNET
Certified Vol. 2. Series Premiere has been charting on radio stations all
over Canada since its release. And several more singles and videos from
the album are on the way. So stay alert and keep your ears to the street
for the perfect Hip Hop group - Perfeck Strangers!
