    MURS
    A ten-year hip-hop veteran, Murs doesn't want to be called an up-and-comer anymore, and he proves his maturity with one of the most refreshing rap records in years, an excellent debut for Definitive Jux named "The End of the Beginning". Murs has an old-school flow that recalls Ice Cube, and unlike many in underground rap, he's not only got a clever delivery but a lot to say. A longtime friend of Definitive Jux leader El-P, rapper Murs came out in the spring of 2003 after nearly a decade of working with various groups in the underground. Based in Los Angeles, his first single was released in 1993, a self-released album from his first group, 3 Melancholy Gypsies. The track barely made a dent, but it did catch the attention of indie hip-hop fans in the area. Through time the group became friends with Mystik Journeymen, who asked 3MG (their shortened name) to join him when he started the Living Legends collective in 1996. Between both 3MG and the Living Legends, Murs rapped on several influential indie rap albums, appearing on more than 20 records, EPs, and singles within a seven-year period. When El-P started to pull together his Def Jux label, Murs contacted the producer and told him he would release his solo record for the company once he had the opportunity. His commitments to both the Legends and 3MG often kept him from working on the album, but after a few years of slowly putting together tracks, Murs finally delivered The End of the Beginning in the spring of 2003. Featuring flashier production than his group projects, the album was more in tune with a mainstream hip-hop record, though a project with Anticon rapper Slug released at the same time under the name Felt unveiled his weird, experimental side. Murs is the most entertaining, down-to-earth rapper since Biz Markie, and with the skills of Ice Cube it's clear he's no novelty act.

    PREFUSE 73
    - The world famous warp records recording artist. Also known as : Savath and Savalas, Delarosa and Asora or just Scott Herren. Prefuse-73 has remixed, collaborated and produced dozens of singles and tracks for the likes of Mos Def, El-P, MF Doom, Anti Pop Consortium, Murs, Mr. Lif, Aesop Rock, Dose One and Sam Prekop (from the Sea and Cake). The Neptunes/Timbaland of the "underground" right now. Not only does he produce hiphop, but is just as famous for his aphex twin/autechre-esque glitchy electronics. Just slightly more experimental than the increasingly fractured productions you'd hear on Power 99 or 103.9. "Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives", his first album on Warp, is much more fun than the notoriously academic cast of techno producers from the labels past. It's like if Big Daddy Kane was to meet Aphex Twin. Believe that. Performing with live drums and keys

    FOUR TET
    - Fridge (warp records) member and co-founder Kieran Hebden. Playful and laid-Back Idm/Electronica combined with acoustic elements. From the UK. Now touring and working with Radiohead for their new songs. Domino Records.

    MANITOBA
    - Frosty and chilled IDM belended with psychadelic rock and pop ala My Bloody Valentine, from Canada. Cooking up messed beats, lost grooves, and a future jazz mentality locking thumping beats to an almost-garage sub-plot. Domino Records

    A GRAPE DOPE
    - aka john herndon from tortoise/isotope 217 etc. live instrumentation. hefty records
