DYNAMIC DUO
Dynamic Duo is a Korean hip-hop duo, made up of members Choiza and Gaeko. Unlike the rough and off beat sound of their past group, CB Mass, Dynamic Duo changed their style to a more audience-friendly sound with a brighter ambiance. They debuted with the album Taxi Driver, which was released in 2004, and it became the best selling hip-hop album in South Korea that year recording 50,000 sales in its first month of release. Their second album, Double Dynamite - Operating Manual, won them their first Best Hip-Hip Album in the prestigious Korean Popular Music Awards in 2005. After their success, they formed a record label named Amoeba Culture. Gaeko and Choiza have tried to maintain credibility by limiting their work to appearances at clubs, concerts, music videos and cable TV whilst avoiding TV appearances which are popular in Korea amongst musicians striving for commercial appeal. They have released six albums to date, the latest being Digilog. Dynamic Duo is also part of the Movement, a Korean hip-hop crew, which includes several other well-known hip-hop artists such as Tiger JK, T, Leessang, Buga Kingz, and Epik High. A few of the duo's popular singles are ResumeInsomniaRing My BellGo BackSoloGuiltyFireworksFriday Night, and Without You(cr. wikipedia)

In 2010, they released their full album titled Supremier followed by some fan-favorited digital singles like WhyGet Ready, and My Heart is Dancing. Another mini-album, Ames Room, contained the celebrated single Then Then Then. Supreme Team won Best New Male Group at the Mnet Asian Music Awards in 2009, 20's Most Influential Stars at the Mnet 20's Choice Awards in 2010, and Best Rap/Hip-Hip at the Golden Disk Awards in 2010. The team has also been involved with numerous collaborations along with Browneyed Soul, Shin Seung Hun, Dynamic Duo, Brian, Hwayobi, Epik High, and Buga Kingz. Simon D has released his first solo album titled Simon Dominic Presents 'SNL League Begins' with notable tracks HeroStay Cool, and Cheerz.

KERO ONE
Known for spearheading the Jazz-Hop movement, Kero One, a talented San Francisco based rapper/producer/DJ, stands as a true testament to the do-it-yourself success story. Using only his homemade studio and personal credit card, Kero One pressed and released his first 12" record Check the Blueprints in 2003 on his own imprint, Plug Label. The record, "Check the Blueprints" became an underground jazzy hiphop classic in Japan almost overnight. Kero One went on to finish his first album, Windmills of the Soul, in 2005, handling everything from playing instruments, rapping, and sound engineering. Since 2006, Kero One has topped iTunes hiphop charts in USA, Asia and Europe, received praise from the likes of Emmy award winning producer Will.i.am, and toured all over the world. Kero One has shared the stage with artists like KRS 1, Blu + Exile , DJ Cash Money, Dj Kentaro, Far East Movement, and Epik High (where Kero One participated in arguably the first successful sold out Asian-American hiphop tour). Additionally, Kero One has kept busy collaborating with the likes of Talib Kweli, Epik High, Ben Westbeech, David Choi, Fashawn, Dumbfoundead, Dynamic Duo, and many others. (cr. kero1.com)
