By Jesse Beer-Dietz

This week we are takin’ you back to the mid-’90s, when there was so much good hip-hop music to listen to, as we spotlight a duo from Indiana who have brought back that feeling. Keep feedin’ my inbox: [email protected]

SPOTLIGHT
AudioDax
(www.audiodax.com): It’s not every day we hype a hip-hop act, so take it as a sign that we truly believe in the Indiana-based duo of Thomas Balcom (Temble) and Matt Rivera (Krypton Flo). We were turned on to the group by Lamusicblog.com’s Mikiel Houser, who was incredibly passionate about the group—and after listening, it was easy to see why. Those of you who appreciate classic hip-hop in the mode of Lupe Fiasco, Hieroglyphics and Pharcyde will understand why we love this group. As their bio says, “A band formed with a goal of creating music that will inspire good feelings and even better times. Is it Christmas? No, it's AudioDax!” Download the duo’s FREE mixtape on their website and let us know whether you share our enthusiasm.
