Theyre rapidly gaining praise and forging a unique sound that sets them apart from the influx of commercial hip-hop.

You dont even need to like hip-hop to love them, quoted Cactus Records owner, Mike Good. Every Eightrack Mind show is a spontaneous night of positive lyrics and organic hip-hop music that takes inspiration from jazz to reggae to funk to rock with a bit of everything in between. Were definitely a diverse band that can rock the party with our hard-hittin beats or laid-back grooves, but our message is always a conscious and positive one, remarked nat kendall, one of the two emcees. He added, The lyrics compliment the music, innovative and uplifting. When all eight members funnel their inspirations down to one track, its truly a mind-blowing performance. The colossal sound of Eightrack Mind formed in 2002 as a collection of six talented musicians and two emcees with the intention of rocking the conventional realm of hip-hop.

Eightrack Mind has nuclear capabilities that fill a niche in the hip-hop world with real instruments, ousting the average DJ and MC act," praised Jacob Goldstein of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Eightrack Minds guitar player, August, stated Were introducing live players into a traditionally electronic and sampled genre to take it to a brand new level." The vibe from the dynamics of a live group instantly seized the publics attention. Exponent writer Jonathan Jackson wrote, "It's not often that a band gets together and immediately has a following. However, Eightrack Mind has done just that." He added, "At their first concert they sold out the club, which ultimately had to turn people away due to safety regulations." Since that debut concert, the band has been gaining national acclaim through their live shows and album.

"These guys are smooth," raved Mark Collins, founder of the Valley Vibe Entertainment Guide, "On a recent night at the Robin Lounge, you couldn't even edge in the door sideways; it was so jammed with people." Their 2005 self-titled release was mixed by Headnodic of the Crown City Rockers and features a wide array of the bands abilities. The CD was the number one selling album of 2005 at Cactus Records and was the editors number two pick for alternative hip-hop on Cdbaby.com. The band has drum-rolled tours up and down the west coast and will be rockin nation wide in 2006. Dont miss their live show for a night of dynamic, high-powered and conscious hip-hop music.
