Midwest Hype is danceable in day glow, barefoot beats, and utterly original. My husband jokingly calls their sound "hippie hop" but their enticing blend of jam, funk and hip-hop is no joke.
CHECK 'EM OUT LIVE AT SUMMER CAMP MUSIC FEST:
SATURDAY 9-10PM AT E. CAMPING STAGE
Here's their bio from their site:
Midwest Hype defines urban garage jazz. Hip-hop flow, unforgettable vocal melodies, punching horn lines, immaculate jazz improvisation, dance floor mayhem, tight pocketed compositions, a spectrum of all colors, a refreshing youthful breath in today's digital world. A celebration and motivation to create a better life, make the day glow.
Midwest Hype has had a string of successes recently. Starting with a slot at Summer Camp 2010 they have played the Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Fest, the Indianapolis 500, Green Music Festival, opened for the Wailers and GIRL TALK, and performed at this year's North Coast Music Festival with Thievery Corporation, Wiz Kalifa, David Guetta and more.
Their EP, Dayglow, produced by Steve Gillis (formerly of Filter) at Chicago's Transient Studios is available now.
