Roman Republic presents “The Die Is Cast” the new release from 21st Century Romans. 21st Century Romans is a new hip hop group that has a new modern twist to the classic hip hop group formula. Their sound is an American and British fusion of hip hop, mixing the sounds of Old Skool with New Skool.
They have influences from other groups such as De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde, Slum Village, Little Brother and many more.
Using a mixture of samples and live instruments, this EP tells a personal story about 3 guys telling the world about their trials and tribulations through their music and lyrics. They have grown up in central London and are dreaming of a better life as they go though a defining moment where they try to get out there with their fresh sound.
The group consists of
JDT(producer): Jack Thomson is a London based producer JDTs music and sound of his production is reminiscent of such sounds as Moby and 9th wonder. His production style is a mix of America and British sounds. He spends his time making instrumentals and DJs sets on his machine. He plans to bring true emotions to his music in what ever way he can.
Rafiki Rhymes(rapper): Arik Raviv was born and raised in New York City. In high school, he took an English class that introduced him to spoken word poetry, and from there he translated his skills to MC-ing. Like Slick Rick and Lupe Fiasco, his strength as a rapper is in storytelling. This skill, he says, is a natural extension of his greatest strength: the art of bullshitting.
J.J(rapper): Jordan James is a rapper from London who is out to make music that people can relate to. He injects humour and a laidback sound but mainly wants to take you on a journey using words through music. .
