Special Feature: Something August

Editor’s Note: In advance of Discorder’s Hip Hop Showcase & Fundraiser Friday, November 18 at the Media Club, we asked the performing artists for a little background…

Something August is experimental hip hop duo Tee Krispil and Kerry Chambers

Discorder Magazine: Who is the biggest influence on your sound?

Something August: Father Realm.

DM: What is your favourite venue to perform at, or attend a concert at (or both)? 

SA: We like anything off-beat, slightly sketchy, with a promoter-run-bar and dim lighting.

DM: As an emerging artist based in the Lower Mainland, what is the biggest obstacle for getting noticed nationally and internationally?

SA: So long as music is being noticed and appreciated, be it our music or not, we are content. Our sound will get there, now or later.

DM: Do you think the hip hop and rap produced in the Pacific Northwest has a distinct sound or style? 

SA: No, that’s why we like it. Mmmm, variety.

DM: If you could be featured on a track with any current breakout artist, who would you want to collaborate with?

SA: A flute playing cobra whisperer. (For real$)
