Magic Heart Genies are making a name for themselves as the west coast's frrreesshest underground collaboration with Myka 9 lyricizing, JtheSarge prophetizing and DJ Drez laying down the beats. A cluster of hip-hop with reggae undertones and a notable world music influence - together they released "Heartifact" on Alpha Pup Records with label mates Busdriver and Daedulus.
Check out their sounds - and yea, that's Humboldt, CA's three-piece horn section "Fat Back". I love me some french horn. Check out at their sweet comic-inspired website with more info.
