DON'T TALK TO THE COPS!
Dyme Def, and Vox Mod
Seattle’s own punk-rap-shoegazers, backroom brown hornets, vibrate higher in their magnetic
blackness. Two MC’s: Pearl Dragon, lifer-a smoke-breathing hood Jim Morrison- and Sir Thomas
Gray, the hyperactivated game-gifted trouble man. One producer/multi-instrumentalist DJ Gajamagic
(AKA Mark Gadjahar, drummer/founding member of defunct Seattle posthardcore institution The Blood
Brothers, current backbone to Past Lives and Weekend) – master of dark arts, road-trip Macgyver,
and sound systems savage. Together they “outrap and outparty everyone” (via Seattle Weekly), drink
greenrooms dry, and smash packed clubs and sweaty basements alike with their afrofuturist afterparty
music- rejecting easy classifications, broke groupies, and bammer weed. Just picture The Cure, Cody
ChesnuTT and Cannibal Ox at a Pabst-soaked jam in a haunted mansion. Now picture The ‘Pagne burning it
the fuck down. Yeah, you got it.

Dyme Def is a Seattle based hip hop trio, founded in 2006 and composed of rappers Fearce Villain, S.E.V., and Brainstorm. Bean One
is the primary beat producer for the group, but MC Brainstorm makes the occasional beat as well, although he is also a recognized MC,
being a past champion of the Red Bull Beat Battle in 2007.
"'Hologram Ghost' is spooky funk. 'Queue (Please Wait)' is cinema for a spaceship. 'Let Go' is jazz for robots. 'Collapse' transports
us to the horizon of a massive galactic event. There's lots to enjoy and admire in this work."
-Charles Mudede, The Stranger
