Welcome to tha soundclick page of the Hip Rock$tarZ, Distant Strangers. What is a Hip Rock$tar you ask? Since our music is classified as 'hip rock', and we party like rockstars, that's pretty much how we came up with it. We are from Saint Cloud, MN. DS is Acteez, L-DuB and Robs. Acteez and DuB spit that fire and make them bangin' beats, while Robs shreds the guitar strings and gives our music that rock sound. We just released a new mixtape called "Rise Of Tha Hip Rock$tarZ, Volume 1" that we will be giving out free at shows, and it will be available for free download online very soon. Check out our official website, , and find us on ReverbNation (), Facebook (), MySpace () and follow DS on Twitter, @distantstranger.

Distant Strangers was formed in 2005, with Acteez, L-DuB and Robs rockin' out at a few jam sessions when they first met. They realized tha sound they were making wasn't like anything else that was out there, especially with Robs shreddin' on guitar. Since 2005, they've opened up for national acts like 2 Live Crew (2005, What's Up Lounge - Mankato, MN), Do Or Die (2007, Trobec's Event Center - Saint Joe, MN), J-Kwon and Big Meech (2008 - Trobec's Event Center - Saint Joe, MN) and Huey (2010 - The Rox Bar - Saint Cloud, MN). Mostly, they like to make music, just to make music. From the party anthems, to odes for Mary Jane, tales about real life struggles and hardships to out of your mind, crazy, fun songs that will make you say, "did they just say that?!", you'll find that Distant Strangers has a taste of something for everybody.
Yes, we do play live, and not to sound cocky, but we rock it everytime! We've rocked all around tha state of Minnesota, and Eau Claire, WI on the UW-Eau Claire campus. We've opened up for big name acts like 2 Live Crew (2005), Do Or Die (2007), J-Kwon and Big Meech (2008), and Huey (2010). Performing live is a great rush, it's awesome to see tha crowd singin' along and just rockin' out to your music and havin' a good time, that's what it's all about.
