The DJ and emcee duo of URF Tone is bringing the rebirth of Hip-Hop’s Golden Era. The two are The World Famous N.I.C and Ila (FKA Icon), bringing their hip-hop enthusiasm to their own releases.
“URF” stands for United Republic of Funk, detailing the guiding principle and objective of the duo, unification-by-way-of-funky-rhythms.
The duo noticed the current state of humanity is divided and carries negativity, while also highlighting those that are not deserving of the platforms they are placed upon. They are set out to make a positive change, creating their music through a hands-on experience that allows them to produce, arrange, write and perform their music.
What do they sound like? When you press play on a piece from URF Tone you will not find the sounds of radio or clubs today that often mirror each other. Instead, you will get jazzy instrumentation infused with break breaks, carefully picked vinyl cuts and the flex of their lyrical abilities.
When you get into URF Tone, you will notice a sound and flair that is sparked by and honors the golden era of the genre. An offering for you is their debut release, “Something 4 Ya,” which features Rae Khalil, a sizzling Los Angeles based rapper who you may have noticed as a competition talent on Netflix’s Rhythm + Flow. Future drops will include features from Camp Lo, Mr. Funke (Lords of the Underground), and Uhmeer (actor/rapper, and son of DJ Jazzy Jeff).
