FRESH KILS [of The Extremities] From behind the boards to the stage, there’s not a spot of ground Fresh Kils’ prolific career hasn’t touched. And its not just hip hop. Its true, you’ll see Saigon, Fabolous & Ali Shaheed Muhammad (ATCQ) grace his resume, but you’ll also find the likes of Ron Sexsmith and The Buena Vista Social Club. His prowess on the MPC has seen him share the stage with many hip hop legends (Nas, De La Soul) as well as the best of the underground, winning over fans, and beat battle competitions, with his signature showmanship. This Sound Battle Royale Champion with multiple JUNO nominations and high profile collaborations & performances, still hasn’t found his ceiling. With momentum & accolades growing each year, Fresh Kils is poised for a sound system takeover unlike any we’ve seen in a long time.

Zachary Eli Lint, better known by his stage name Coolzey, is an Iowa based musical artist whose productions are so diverse it’s difficult to categorize them into one genre. In January of 2013 Coolzey signed with management and booking company Deep Thinka Records, who aided in the co-release with Public School Records of the limited pressing (200 copies) of The Honey on vinyl and sent Coolzey on tour across the US and Canada with bands as diverse as rapper Raashan Ahmad and the female-fronted indie rock band Muscle. At the close of 2013 Coolzey released his second official album Hit Factory and is currently touring worldwide in support of it. In the album, he finds his niche as a songwriter, navigating hip hop, classic rock, punk, and pop in the spirit of influences like Ween, Beck, The Beastie Boys, and Outkast.
