Nazeem & Spencer Joles, Student 1 and D Mills join forces for a hip-hop show loaded with thoughtful rap delivery, dirty/raw beats and creative sound dimensions. 

Nazeem & Spencer Joles
"Each raps with a style that pushes forward while the other pulls back, complementing one another’s lyrical flow as each song mounts in rising tension ... Spencer’s production darts between folk, classical, and pop music, and he says he tries take aspects from each and incorporate them into his beats." - The Current

Student 1
"It's a decent shorthand to describe the young rapper's affinity for wordplay, his open-book self-consciousness, and his primary influences. (He cites Slug and MF Doom specifically, and you can hear hints of Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper as well.) But "backpack rap" hardly begins to capture Student1's open-ended grasp of modern hip-hop" - City Pages

D Mills (Diane Miller)
D Mills (of D Mills & The Thrills) performs solo hip-hop by making her own beats organically with a loop station. She's been described by critics and fans as "unexpected" and "inspirational" for her wild ability to rap and sing from a poetic, engaging voice. It's unexpected in that Diane is a quiet, unassuming person off stage, originally from Fargo, ND. It's inspirational in that Diane's abilities are bold, creative, raw and strong.
