Internal Affairs is a refreshing emergence of the hip hop culture. Consisting of three writer/poets/vocalists- Concept, Homage, and Femme-Shui, One DJ/Producer- Decline, and when performing, Internal Affairs is accompanied by their live band consisting of drums, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, violin, and keyboard, producing a symphony of passionate and hypnotizing consciousness.
The passion and energy felt at Internal Affairs shows is intoxicating to say the very least. The charisma radiating from the humble group and their message hypnotizes onlookers into a frenzy of consciousness even before the initial words are uttered. Their message, delivered with raw intention and furious manifestation, leaves the audience not with a show but with an experience never to be forgotten.
Native to Calgary, two poets sharing the common love for the seemingly dead art form of hip hop formed Internal Affairs. They started with only pads of paper and inspiration. Influenced by many minds outside the culture, the two were able to set forth into the urban-based culture with uniquely fresh vision. The ideology was set upon the quality of the music as opposed to the over emphasis of marketing ploys and commercial strategy. As of yet, the group has completed the album entitled "The Lost Scriptures", which could easily be described as lyrically conscious and musically addictive. Internal Affairs is a music for all generations and backgrounds.
With half an eye to the future, the group is already upon the task of yet another album and has had numerous invitations to collaborate with artists from Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. Performing at sold out shows all over Calgary, from the Den, Cherry Lounge and Night Gallery, to performing for the United Nation''s day of Celebration at the Devonian gardens, to selling out of their last CD "The Lost Scriptures" in every independent music store which holds it...Internal Affairs is rising rapidly, leaving listeners and devotees in anxious anticipation of the group''s climatic explosion which is inevitable. The group will always be home-based regardless of national and international branches, movement, and notoriety, eternally expanding the culture between Calgarian doorsteps.
The momentum is only felt to be gaining as the cultural ground of Calgary, Canada, and music as a whole begins to tremble as Internal Affairs begins to witness the blossoming of years of perseverance... may the revolution begin.
