Bound by a love of music and a drive to produce sophisticated, spiritually minded Hip-Hop, The Procussions is a group of emcee-musicians who hail from Colorado.
A natural storyteller, Stro the 89th key leads the groups musical direction. With influences ranging from Nas and The Fat Boys to The Foundations and Steely Dan, Stro is a classically trained musician who commands the guitar, piano, trumpet and drums.
As a young lyricist, Mr. J Medeiros earned props throughout the Rocky Mountain region by dominating underground emcee battles and appearing on several independent compilations. Always smiling and positive, Mr. J spearheaded the groups relocation to Los Angeles in 2002. He also plays the drums and piano.
Velvety-voiced Resonant is an emcee who co-founded the globally syndicated Colorado radio show Basementalism. Res carries an award-winning portfolio and handles the groups graphic production and web design.
The Procussions formed in late 1990s when members of two rival b-boy crews decided to squash beef and make changes in the Colorado music scene. Five years later, they continue to pursue their mission of spreading life-affirming music and shattering Hip-Hip stereotypes. They know where theyre form, and always speak up for Colorados vibrant, multicultural music scene. Colorado is where were from and Colorado is what we represent!
