MC Hyde (Region: - Chapter: Central)
Mr. Hyde's love for jungle/Drum & Bass came about in late 1999 after attending a rave party and watching midwest legends MC Bumpyscrew and MC Brace rapping over this crazy music and immediatley fell in love but it was the emceeing that really pulled him in. 2 yrs. later he was thrown head first into the fire opening up for Drum & Bass legends Brockie, Frenzic, and MC Skibadee.
After the smoke cleared Hyde was approached by the one of the Midwest's Drum & Bass godfathers DJ Easyrider & label mate Aaron Bliss and was asked to join one of only three stateside 2step garage crews - The Steppers Alliance/Alliance. going on a musical journey with good friend Easyrider they found themselves mentioned in TIME magazine an article about the U.K. Garage explosion as well as other magazines and news papers. After the 2step garage scene slowly faded out in the states Easyrider & Hyde went back to their Drum & Bass roots.
Shortly down the road a tight knit crew of Dub Step and Drum & Bass artisits and producers formed up to start a Minnesota chapter of the legendary and longest running club night in U.S. history KONKRETE JUNGLE. Running 8 yrs. strong and extremely successful packing the house every Wednesday night in Minneapolis.
As well as the Drum & Bass, BreakBeats, and Dub-Step Hyde also flexes his mic talents in the Hip-Hop game alongside his good friend Mantis AKA Son Money. Together they have shared the stage with Wu Tang Clans Killah Priest, Twista, Slick Rick, Too Short, Obie Trice, Do or Die just to name a few.
Hyde has emceed alongside just about every major DJ/Producer from the United States to the United Kingdom that you can think of. He is hands down one of the most versatile MC's stateside and thats the thing he wanted to touch on was versatility and that being the key to defining his style.
