The Sound Providers

I wanted to show our readers another side of Antler Darts; Hip-Hop. For Mike and I, it's hard not to love a fresh beat paired up with a talented MC.

Now that I have your attention, I want to briefly depict the difference between hip-hop and rap, which is easily confused. Simply put, hip-hop music is where an MC (mic controller) creates lyrics on the spot, that are fueled by the energy of the records the DJ (turntablist) is spinning. The MC's job is to get the crowd into the music and to make sure they have a good time. Rap, is just an MC and his lyrics, and doesn't require a DJ.

With that said, I want to push a couple tracks your way. I have tons of great hip-hop, but an artist I've been listening to a lot lately is The Sound Providers. Hailing from San Diego, these guys deliver jazz samples in a way you have never heard them before. The following tunes are off of their 2004 debut CD, "An Evening With The Sound Providers."

So relax, light a cigar, nod your head to the beat, and have a weekend.
