3rd World War
WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID!! " ...soul-stirring, excitingly edgy music...just disturbing (read 'mind-f**king') enough to demand attention. There is a whole spice rack of auditory flavors here, served up like fractured poetry on a collection of intensely listenable Hallmark cards from Hell. Bill Margold, Cinema Seen "...melding innovation, the avant-garde and street level music..." Mark Kirby/DreamForge.Com/Brooklyn, NY "This very well may be the most unique, interesting, and best music you'll hear this year and for some to come. Bending genres and blending enough Beatnik swagger and harnessed recklessness to stir up both Ginsberg and Kerouac, this L.A. collective lays down a foundation of seamless and cool drum and bass perfectly tamed into a dark seedy ambiance by edgy trip jazz sax and flute. Vocals are sung, spoken and/or rapped, the group boasts four vocalists, and the entire mix of elements combines with a classy delivery and production to create a clearly vital and relative statement." Francisco H. Ciriza Night & Day-San Diego Union Tribune "Sort of John Trudell meets OZomatli. " Eric Mofford "DJ Monkey serves up spoken-word poetry atop funk, hip-hop, rock and jazz. While there is plenty going on in the nine-piece's grab bag, this act's output is accessible. The music leans on upbeat rhythms and vocal harmonies to accompany thoughtful messages. Add to this Lil' Tip Toe's rapid-fire rapping, and the ensemble takes on a Jurassic 5/Roots vibe. In final summary: (DJ Monkey) is..powerful, original and provocative."
