Ant Loc is Nəxʷsƛ̕áy̕əm̕ and a member of the controversial and influential Indigenous hip hop/rap group Savage Family Seowa. He is from the illegally occupied territory now known as washington. His music is rooted in and influenced by the many lives that he has been touched by. His voice represents that of the oppressed, the have nots, the poor and unfortunate and the unmentionables of society. His gritty lyrical ability was forged in the streets and found further strength in the spiritual/cultural foundations of his ancestors.. He spits in an intelligent and precise manner that is rivaled by few. Ant Loc is mostly unheard of as of yet outside of Indigenous/Native communities but is now prepared to share the music that fulfills the prophecies of his people that will make the cities crumble.

Straight outta the desert borough, Arizona’s premier Hip Hop duo Shining Soul, show that the element of rap still is a conduit for revolutionary change. Fronted by MCs Liaizon of Central Phoenix/Tohono O’odham Nation and Bronze Candidate of South Phoenix, Shining Soul bring to light the social injustices that attack their daily lives, such as the criminalization and militarization of indigenous and immigrant communities, while sharing and maintaining the essence of hip hop culture. Shining Soul’s emphasis on skills, style, and substance, has made them a potent force in the Arizona Hip-Hop community, which is fully exhibited in their explosive live shows. Shining Soul’s latest full-length release “SONIC SMASH” exemplifies their skills, diversity, subject matter, and overall commitment in carrying on the transformative art of Hip Hop through the element of rap. So stay tuned, keep your ears low to the ground, and check for SHINING SOUL in a big city, small town, native reservation, and protest near you…WE GOT THIS.

Alas makes music that braids her lived experience as an undocumented mujer subsisting on stolen land with the theories of rebellious decolonization. Her words pump from the raw heart of a living revolutionary to heal with her double hearted mujeres en la lucha while pushing resistance movements to sustain an effective level of militancy. She struggles for a better world on and off the mic – she co-hosts a mobile free zine library, organizes against police brutality, and treads the forest to protect endangered species. Liberation is her life’s goal, brutal truth is her musics vow.
