Chow Mane
Chow Mane
Chow Mane has described himself as "hip hop's Jackie Chan." Presumably, this means that he does his own stunts, quickly masters new styles, and makes you laugh. His versatility in producing and rapping is highly influenced by Lil B, Ronald Takaki, and soup dumplings. His lyrics range from semi-serious topics surrounding Asian American identity to party tracks about dumplings, and his offbeat production style guarantees that no two songs of his sound the same.

Chow has been generating local buzz as he prepares for his upcoming EP, "Moon Cake." He has recently performed a sold out show as a supporting act at The Catalyst Club in Santa Cruz. Now based in Oakland, California.
Tope
Tope
If you were to only listen to the chatter online and in the newspapers and magazines of the world, you’d likely think that the only music being made in Portland, Oregon was lovelorn folk and literate indie rock. But scratch below that surface, and you’ll find a strong, vibrant underground hip-hop scene that dominates the stages and eardrums of the city for decades. The Portland rap game couldn’t stay below street level forever. Word is starting to spread about the talent the Rose City boasts, and one of the names that keeps popping up on people’s lips is a rapper known simply as TOPE

A good deal of that attention is due to the respect that TOPE has earned for the years he’s committed to the scene. Starting in his teens, he’s been a fixture at local hip-hop showcases and freestyle cyphers. He eventually started a pair of groups, Living Proof (with Seattle-based rapper Prem) and the well-respected crew TxE with Epp and Calvin Valentine (aka G_Force). As any restless and talented artist would, TOPE has been stepping out on his own, releasing solo albums that have only burnished his talent even brighter. 2012's Until The Next Time We Meet was a bold step forward, but he's evolved in leaps and bounds on 2013's Trouble Man and again on the latest project, BROKE BOY SYNDROME.

As a one man machine; booking his own tours, designing his own merch, writing, recording, and producing his own music, and more - TOPE has worked his way up to being one of the most respected independent artists in the NW plus an up and coming rapper nationally with a recent move to California and attention from major press outlets building with each release. With 14 albums available to date, be on the look out for a new instrumental project and follow up to #BBS coming soon.
Jordan Garrett
Jordan Garrett
Using a singular genre to describe Jordan Garrett's musical style is a difficult one. He is often self described as making "Alternative" music.

Jordan Garrett has started his career with cosigns from some of the industry's rising stars like Maxo Kream, Insomniac Lamb$, Caleborate and even legends like Blackalicious. Entirely independent, Jordan Garrett is looking to take the industry by storm.
Dillon Daniel
Dillon Daniel
Dillon Daniel is not your average Rap Artist, neither is he your average producer. People often describe Dillon Daniel as having Chance the Rapper's voice with Childish Gambino's punchlines. Best described as an artist who almost always veers from the norm. He showcases this unique style on his debut project Nimbus.

Dillon Daniel's producer moniker, Jemb Themas, takes the helm for a majority of the production on his tape. Ghastly synths juxtaposed with driving drum rhythms Nimbus strikes like a thunderbolt.
