Identity Krisis - Krismerica EP
Birthed from a brotherhood bond, Identity Krisis (IDK) is truly a band of brothers located in Clinton, MD. Originally named the “Pretty Difficult Boys” formed in 2007 after wanting to emulate the success in music that they found on the hit game Rockband. With the original line up being that of Nova Cain playing guitar and doing vocals, Solo Dolo on lead guitar, Quah Manigan on bass and Remy on drums. The new all black rockband was created and ready to rock. Shortly after forming, the band added another neighborhood friend Cortez Mars who would soon take on the responsibility of songwriting and vocals. His hip hop roots added another dynamic to the groups persona and musical styling. Almost immediately after adding Cortez Mars, the band changed the name to Identity Krisis. The name was said to describe the band in the most perfect way possible. The songs they were creating fit no genre perfectly as if they did not what type of music they wanted to create.
IDK is without a doubt a breathe of fresh air in music, with influences like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gym Class Heroes, Coheed and Cambria, NERD, and Weezer. Stay tuned, IDK will be featured in upcoming B2P events.
e-roc cravé- Game Theory
DMV artist e-roc cravé released his very first EP “Game Theory” in early March 2013. Game Theory is the study of positive concepts and decision making. He describes himself as a highly motivated and limitless artist with a comprehensive background in performance and music production. This EP demonstrates his ability combine poetic and visionary lyrics with a small display of his vocal flexibility. He was successful in breaking away from the norm to explore a more an alternative sound (influenced by groups such as Pharcyde, Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest). Not bad at all for a first EP, definitely worth a download.

Calligraphist- Closer To My Dreams (Goapele Remix)
dir. Atanas Vasilev
New track from Calligraphist, a phenomenal underground emcee known for his usage of metaphors, similes, comparisons and grotesque violent punchlines. This track is a lyrical interpretation of Goapele’s Closer (1999) through the prism of a university student, yet to face the upheavals of life. This is a very motivational message directed to the upcoming generation to keep their heads up and continue pursuing their dreams. We could definitely use more music like this.
