The energetic Hip Hop duo known as Dynamix emerged in late 2001 as the result of a long-winded, frustrating year. Prior to the group''s formation, the two members, Junclassic and Ntrospekt, had been performing together as soloists for several years on the underground circuit. The two were convinced that their "official" union as a duo would increase their visibility in the overcrowded yet underdeveloped open-mic community. Through their fiery solo material, the two artists'' friendly competitive nature inspired the duo to excel in song-writing, recording, and performances. The group name "Dynamix" is derived from the duo''s keen ability to balance the group''s overall presentation. For example, the animated dreadlocked Ntrospekt may often leap at the crowd with verbal assaults, exuding energy, while the more taciturn, corn-rowed emcee Junclassic looms calmly in the background, cheering on his partner through ad-libs, exuding a more rigid, wise dynamic. The duo vehemently switch roles of hype man and emcee amongst themselves, blurring the lines of hype-man and m.c. in order to create a more cohesive and entertaining show.
What does Dynamix bring to the game? They represent a mixture of communal politics, consciousness derived from criminality, and originality with their use of rhythm and content. Both of these young men are from the inner-city of Jamaica, Queens, and are a perfect example to urban youth that hard-work and belief in self are absolutely necessary for success in this crudely competitive world. It is this aggressive yet benevolent attitude that has attracted the attention of fellow underground performers such as Manifest Destiny, another hip hop duo representing Newark, New Jersey. Manifest Destiny, consisting of E-mid and partner, Intellect can often be found performing with Dynamix in various hip hop spots such as End Of The Weak (E.O.W.) in the Lower East Side. Dynamix also performs with the incendiary live band, Ish Lab, comprised of two very talented producers, Misha and Pasha Davidson, both of whom have produced tracks for Dynamix. Performances consisting of both Ish Lab and Dynamix have often resulted in a euphoric explosion, alive with audience members waving excited arms in the air. If there are any believers in original, thought-provoking lyrics, melodic driven production, and incredible energy, seek out a Dynamix show today! Their debut cd, "Shock and Awe: The Campaign vol.1" is currently available.
