Hip-Hop, From, Haiti, Puerto Rico, & USA. In the midst of social disparity and issues that continue to permeate the culture, the ReadNex Poetry Squad have issued open invitations to all to step outside the prescribed lifestyle matrix and embark on a journey toward progress and greater consciousness with a focus on youth. This unwavering desire to facilitate social change has culminated in their metamorphic rebirth embodied in their new album, “ Day Before Sound,” set for release in early 2010. Embracing the eternal tradition of conveying knowledge orally, audiences nationally and around the globe have been captivated and moved by the anti–apathetic stance of the group comprised of four spoken word poets/emcees and one D.J. Through the art of writing and the power of music, esteemed lyrical scholars Decora, FreeFlowin, Jarabe Del Sol, Latin Translator and DJ H20 continue to uplift urban communities with their universal message and sound influenced by Hip-Hop, Soul, Latin and Caribbean music. As artists, educators and activists, they seek to alleviate ignorance by tackling various issues including but certainly not limited to race, gender, politics, history, social injustice, gentrification, poverty and segregation. Their evolution into which they are today has been fueled by their experiences as their enlightening and empowering commentary is framed by politics, history and current events. The title of their new album “Day Before Sound” refers to the moment of clarity that is achieved upon the realization that human beings are all connected and a part of the same frequency, thus becoming a unified sound. Amid increasingly condensed communities that continue to be systematically divided, imagine a time and place where unity exists among all peoples–regardless of political views, gender, religion, sexual orientation, skin color, hair texture, ethnicity and organic composition.

This is the destination of “The Day Before Sound.” Readnex Poetry Squad Moved by the innocence and fearlessness of youth, the ReadNex Poetry Squad gives youth leverage through their nationally recognized Hip Hop and Spoken Word Poetry Youth Empowerment Workshop that started in Newburgh, NY in 2004. This program is designed to build confidence, give an in depth understanding of poetry and use Hip-Hop as a positive medium for self–expression and public outreach. In 2009, the group continued their acclaimed youth programming and spent time reflecting on their seven week Front Lines Tour that hit 40 cities in the Summer of 2008. The expedition was test of faith in their art willingness and the willingness to complete a self sustained tour. They were also the Featured Artist of the World Social forum in Brazil in January 2009.

In April 2009, the ReadNex Poetry Squad hosted the second annual Hip Hop Seasons, a week-long festival in the Hudson Valley, NY. Launched in 2008, Hip Hop Seasons showcases positive images of Hip Hop that helped cultivate the native Hudson Valley social justice band and featured a triple threat of break dancing, dj-ing and beat battles. The festival included a benefit concert with John Forte and Saul Williams for the Children of the Night Scholarship, an All Women’s Hip Hop Panel and Graffiti Art Showing in the Ann Street Art Gallery. As the dawn of 2010 approaches, the impact of the ReadNex Poetry Squad continues to be boundless as they deliver each and every potent line with an attitude of social responsibility. Motivating in their own right, they are inspired by all the pioneers and supporters who have made the impossible possible. Through their new album, they are reborn and “Day Before Sound” signifies the continuation of learning, growth and spiritual elevation. myspace.com/readnex Read more on Last.fm.
