More press for The ProForms in today’s Nuvo Magazine. There is a great article about us written by DJ / Journalist Kyle Long. Also a great front page article featuring fellow Cut Camp Members Lonegevity and DJ Jay Diff by Kat Coplen. Thank you to Kat Coplen and Kyle Long for the support. Reading is fundamental. Peace.
here’s an exerpt :
Atavism, the debut LP from The Proforms, sounds like a classic even on the first spin. That’s due in no small part to the group’s predilection for the vintage sounds of early ’90s “golden era” hip-hop. Proforms beat maker and emcee Joe Harvey grew up on the classic hip-hop sound of producers like Pete Rock and DJ Premier.
But it’s more than that; Atavism is a finely crafted piece of hip-hop.
“I don’t believe in making disposable music. We put in a lot of time, energy, and sweat into making this music,” said Harvey.
The Proforms are an Indianapolis hip-hop supergroup. Anyone who has paid only the slightest attention to the local music scene over the last few years probably already knows who these guys are. The individual histories of each member constitute a large chunk of Indiana hip-hop history.
The group features two of Indy’s most dynamic emcees, Ace One (of s.a.i.n.t. RECON, The Breakdown Kings, Justice League) and Skittz (of Mudkids, Breakdown Kings) backed by one of the city’s best producers, Joe Harvey (Twilight Sentinels) with up-and-coming turntablist DJ Spoolz (Scoot Dubbs, WhoisLouis) rounding out the crew.
The group was born from mutual friendships.
