One thing that all avid music listeners do is to make sure that they keep posted with regards to up and coming artists. It’s not easy to trace a new artist from their first steps, it usually gets to the point where they’ve released a project of some sort before they begin to attract some attention. The case remains the same with this new or artist or better yet these new artists, IVXX THE COLLECTIVE.
IVXX THE COLLECTIVE are a group of eight that consists of Chris de Mako, Sarbenfreude and Lost Boy who are rapper/producers; it also boasts the talents of AY, Dago and KTG who are rappers as well as Eric Nolastname (who also goes by a number of other monikers) who plays the role of the group antagonist (if you want to know what that is, then it’s time to start paying attention to the collective) and last but not least Ginge who is the resident ginger (because your music group is failing if it isn’t associated or directly involved with a ginger person).
The group hails from the UK and does alternative hip-hop amongst a group of other genres but what’s interesting about this group is that they don’t have the typical UK rapper sound and the subject matter is most definitely not what’s expected from them given that they’re from UK. In spite of that they still manage to make it work which only adds to their interest factor. As expected from a rap group each rapper has a distinctive style and it wouldn’t take listeners to long to decipher which rapper is which but on top of that the rappers blend well together so when any of them combine to jump on a track it sounds as if they all belong on it.
IVXX THE COLLECTIVE are still very grass roots and are working to pick up a buzz, they recently released a mixtape called 0.7g which is available for free download from their bandcamp page and no doubt there will be more projects to come from them.
It’s still early days in the career of IVXX THE COLLECTIVE however the journey for the collective is definitely one that is worth watching and paying attention to.
