Freshest Celebrate 4 Years, Dom Kennedy Visits [News]
Vancouver, B.C. – Hard to believe it’s been four years since Marvel, Seko, Rico Uno and Kutcorners first started pooling their talents and rocking parties together. We appreciate their studious efforts and butt-shaking beats, and will be celebrating their anniversary – alongside the fabulous Dom Kennedy – on August 24th at Fortune Sound Club. Check out what the boys had to say about their longstanding partnership, then watch a Dom Kennedy vid to whet your appetite for the big show.
HipHopCanada: What brought you all together?
Freshest: Beatstreet records, mutual friends, Rico’s constant supply of snacks, Matt’s bad jokes, group slang, appreciation for the finer things,
new music, fashion,and we solidified as a crew in 2007 when we started doing our Vancouver-based night Higher Ground.
HipHopCanada: Why do you think you’ve lasted strong for 4 years?
Freshest: Strong friendship first and foremost. Being involved with a versatile selection of shows and events. Constantly putting out mixes and tracks.
HipHopCanada: Greatest adventure as a team?
Freshest: 6 am basement afterparties in hood-ass North End Winnepeg with oysters, B-52s jams, swat teams, and the homies Cass, DJ Co-Op and Cadence Weapon.
HipHopCanada: Most embarrassing moment for anyone in the team?
Freshest: Spending an hour over drinks trying to answer this question, failing, only to have our server tell us her embarrassing story of pre-pubescent girl crush for South-African rugby player.
HipHopCanada: What you’re looking forward to most about the anniversary show.
Freshest: Rap jams, girls and drunk.
