StarF is a pretty cool guy who occasionally yells at microphones and calls the results music.
StarF was raised with internet culture and music to lead the way, so it only made sense that eventually he would discover a musical community on the internet where he could feel most at home. Aligning well with Scrub Club, StarF now works ever longer to become not only the best rapper he can be, but the best human he can be.
Sometimes poetic, sometimes comedic, and sometimes downright nonsensical, every project is a genuine piece of the amalgamated monolith that is StarF.”
2 Mello is a remix artist and soundtrack composer who chews up samples and neat sounds and spews out music that you can’t stop listening to. He is most famously known for Chrono Jigga, a mashup album that sees Jay-Z’s lyrics mixed with handcrafted beats sampling the Chrono Trigger soundtrack. After producing three albums as a solo artist, he was signed to the online, non-profit label Scrub Club Records.
Recently, he began a career as an indie game composer and is now working on the soundtracks for Read Only Memories and Dawn Of Time. He has been featured in articles on Spin.com, Kotaku, The Verge, Polygon and Destructoid, among other websites.
Devo Spice is a nerdcore and comedy rapper from New Jersey who has been called “the red-headed stepson of Weird Al Yankovic and Eminem.” His demented brand of hip hop made him one of the most popular artists on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show.
Devo Spice performs regularly across the country at music clubs, comedy clubs, and science fiction conventions. The live show features videos and animations synchronized with the music resulting in a hilarious show.
His latest album I Am The Doctor is a Doctor Who concept album which features one song per incarnation of The Doctor in addition to the title track, and even has some special celebrity cameos.
Monotony is powered by two game boys running LSDJ, resulting in an assault of grungy, hyperactive, progressive, chiptune dance music.
