Brought together by the power of the internet (and perhaps a touch of musical providence), Cincinnati-based computer programmer int eighty and Manchester-area graphic designer c64 have been rocking the more studious side of the hip-hop underground since 2007. Their debut release Zero One – featuring Counter-Strike anthem “Hostage Down” and club banger “Give Me Wings” – was summarily embraced by the tech set as a welcome shift in the contemporary hip-hop paradigm.
My Parents Favorite Music
MPFM began as a group formed in 2000 when Steffen alongside friend and co-founder Matt Steller entered their annual high school battle of the bands in late 2000 as a Bloodhound Gang cover band. They later left the physical band and continued to produce music on their home computers over the next few years. The group gained a small bit of local notoriety within their community by releasing an independent album on burned CD-Rs and playing shows within Flint, MI and the surrounding areas. Conflicting schedules and time constraints led to the separation of the group in 2004 shortly after their second album was released. With the advancement of social networking sites like MySpace and community based podcasts, Steffo used the opportunity to resurface and resurrect the group name as his own stage name. In 2007 he re-released the group’s first two CD-R only albums with new artwork and updated sound quality as a way to get funding for his upcoming first solo album ‘Testing the Waters’. My Parents Favorite Music has performed shows with Nerdcore hip hop acts Beefy, MC Router, and YTCracker as well as appeared in the 2008 Nerdcore hip hop documentary Nerdcore For Life directed by Dan Lamoureux.

Semblance of Order
One-man music project formed by the group’s only member, SCXCR. SC first began the group as a way to both exercise his composition skills and help clog up MySpace’s bandwidth. Since then he’s picked up an extra instrument or two and begun to make full songs. After playing in two music groups and auditioning for several others with little luck, he decided to use his guitars and numerous rock influences to experiment with another of his favorite genres: video game music.
Game Related is a band from Louisville Kentucky that primarily fuses classic video game sounds and music with modern day (as well as old school) hip-hop style. Rock, Jazz, Blues, Classical and Reggae also lend to the creative stylings of “Game Related”. The group consists of two primary members; Jason Carter (vocals) and Brandon Jackson (vocals & music)
Joey Zadjino AKA Lord Zadjino is the hip-hop act of a strange, nerdy,
misanthropic 19 year old with an internet connection. Never taking
himself too seriously, Zadjino’s songs range from long-distance
relationships to his attempts to take over the world, and somewhere
between there is a song about being the only male Nurse Joy in the
world. Always making sure to stay ridiculous, lacing his lyrics with
humor, irony and a bit of anger, Zadjino hasn’t been on the scene for
long, but has been rising quickly with his bombastic stage presence and
furious raps. His new album “Internet Superheroes”, a joint effort with
producer MashupMaloney, drops to an internet near you on October 1st.
In early 2010 2 people, Tyler Yount and Zach Cobble, dabbled in doing a video game rap song. The defining moment was a live cover of an “Action Adventure World” song at Tyler’s college. Applauded while on stage he decided to begin creating original music. Zach shortly joined permanently and so “Blaze’s Dreamland” was born. The first EP, recorded with a guitar hero microphone, is soon to be released. With the advice of Steffen of MPFM “Blaze’s Dreamland” became “Dr3amLand” and they gained a logo, and also a sound guy by the name of Daniel Cupp. Dr3amLand is Tyler “Shaddix Blaze” Yount, Zach “MC ZaKK” Cobble, and Daniel “The Elite Ninja”.
