From battling alcoholism to an all out swat-ninja assault on Fox News, QuePac’s debut EP explores a dynamic range of styles and content within 5 tracks (and a 6th bonus track which is one of the most brutal diss tracks in years). Though diverse, the project remains unified through its focus on the Brooklyn Wildlife art scene, offering portraits of the lives and ideas of artists bubbling from the Bushwick underground. The production on the EP keeps heads nodding, while the lyrics appeal to lovers of commercial music and hip hop purists alike. While this is QuePac’s first EP, members of QuePac have been featured on Shade45, Kevin Nottingham, 8th Boro, and many other notable blogs and hip hop outlets. The new group can be found at www.soundcloud.com/quepac andwww.facebook.com/quepacmusic.
The EP features production from Tony Bella (Debrah Cox, Paige), July Quin, Double A, No Surrender and 5 Star Beatz, with guest appearances from Shane MauX (of the acclaimed group, Duk Duk Goose), Sharina Marisela, and the infamous DJ duo TeamEviL. Each track’s artwork also features portraits by Eat the Cake NYC (who has worked on photo/film projects with Rex Arrow, Mac Miller, Homeboy Sandman and others).
QuePac is a collaboration between long-time Brooklyn favorites Que Cee and Paco the Dopest Nerd (also from Duk Duk Goose). The team-up sprouted out of the vibrant Bushwick music scene, where some of the most innovative sounds in Brooklyn are emerging, and from which most of their inspiration for this project is drawn. Independently, they have performed shows at major New York venues such as Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater, Public Assembly, Sullivan Hall, as well as at out of state venues and music festivals like Afro-Punk and StereoTerra.
