Side Project : Invisible Inc

I’m a big fan of browsing myspace and youtube for new music. There’s so much great undiscovered talent out there that doesn’t reach the masses. I found these guys through a fella called Daniel Riera, a very talented young producer. Futher still, I found him when I was browsing youtube for vocoder/talk box videos and found his rendition of the Carpenters song “Close to You” and added it to my favourites. At this point he only had one video, but it left me begging for more.

Months later, I noticed he posted u some new vids and realised he was in a group. The videos feature a very young looking MC (George Watsky) who blew me away with his skills on the mic. He won me with his speed raps on the song “Fck an Emcee name” - he’s definitely in my list of top 10 speed rappers. From there I checked out the myspace link on the video and the group was called Invisible Inc. The group consisted of 2 latin, classically trained, jazz musicians (Daniel Riera on the flute and Max Miller Loran on the trumput, both great beat makers in their own right) and a Poetry Champion (George on the mic, sometimes on the drums and the harmonica) - defeinitely a force to be reckoned with.

I love hip hop, and it’s a terrible waste when good hip hop doesn’t reach its intended audience, so i’m always willing to help upcoming artists in any way, shape or form and that’s normally with web stuff. I contacted Daniel Riera on myspace not expecting to hear anything, but a few days later I received an enthusiastic email accepting my offer to help out. Anyhow, one thing led to another and I ended up doing the Invisible Inc site.

The group is from San Fran but are all based in Boston right now so that’s a 12 hour difference - made for many late nights.  Anyway the site’s all up and running and hopefully i’ll be doing more sites for these guys soon! If you’re looking for a new sound and some fresh new faces, definitely check these guys out.
