Hardwork Movement
Hardwork Movement
Hardwork Movement is an independent hip-hop group based out of Philadelphia. Though they are labeled as hip-hop, the group’s music is cross-genre, celebrating not only traditional hip-hop, but neo-soul and indie influences. The group is composed 4 members, 3 emcees and one vocalist accompanied by a 4-piece live band. The group has spread their music through live performances from Philadelphia to Brooklyn and DC.

Hardwork Movement released their newest album, Good Problems, on January 6 and followed it up with a sold-out show at popular Northern Liberties venue Kung Fu Necktie. Having been featured by local music outlets like WXPN The Key and The Deli Philadelphia, the group continues to position themselves as one of Philadelphia’s most popular up-and-coming hip-hop acts.
Ill Doots
Ill Doots
ILL DOOTS has always been known as a diverse and expansive tribe, but originally they were nothing more than a few teenagers in a jam session: a curious kid from Boston who played bass and loved J Dilla, an enthusiastic young drummer from Reading, PA , and a rambunctious acting student who kicked freestyle raps on the mic. These humble beginnings built the foundation of collaboration that continues to drive ILL DOOTS forward on their journey as artists.

ILL DOOTS is a group of individuals with different perspectives, from different places who want nothing more than to come together freely, have fun, and make good music with no rules. In 2009 ILL DOOTS began molding its jam session origins into a small dorm room studio project which has since further evolved into a raging live beast of a band featuring: two emcees, two guitarists, a bassist, drummer, percussionist, keyboardist and occasional appearances from a horn section, other emcees, and singers.

ILL DOOTS has proclaimed that their sound is unlike anything ever heard before on Earth, it is a new philosophy: 3EATKRACK. 3EATKRACK is a mindstate, to look within yourself and reconcile raw emotion and refined thought, the coal, the diamonds, and everything in between. For ILL Doots this means mixing elements of jazz, infused with hip hop and funk to give life to their soulful sound. The 8+ piece band's vibe is organic and raw because the band draws from a diverse range of backgrounds as individuals but maintains a shared musical consciousness. Their live show has become more refined, theatrical, engaging, and challenging with each year of collaboration. ILL DOOTS also strives to collaborate with artists from all disciplines; cross-medium collaboration has been a constant source of inspiration and is a staple of the ILL DOOTS experience. In reality it's not just ILL DOOTS, it's a whole #ILLMOVEMENT.
Sing-song melodies and orchestral strings lying somewhere between RnB, folk and hip-hop creates the organic sounds of tubafresh. As the bandleader and emcee for Brooklyn based PitchBlak Brass Band, Chanell Crichlow explores new ideas and compositional styles with viola, trumpet and drums.
