Da Hood

Proiectul Da Hood Justice a luat fiinta la sfarsitul anului 1993, cu sprijinul echipei "Hip-Hop Radio Show" de la Radio Nova 22, cei care i-au pus la dispozitie lui Nai'gh'Ba, Andrei Vulpescu, primele negative. Debutul oficial al trupei, formata la acea vreme din Nai'gh'Ba si Sorty Shit Stain, a avut loc la 14 aprilie 1994 la Disco Calyse, in cadrul celui de-al treilea concert de Hip-Hop organizat de Francis Rebelu (Panterele Negre). Imediat dupa show-ul de debut, trupa s-a completat cu Sub Zero (aka Phane Buton).

Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine

Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine - aka Carter USM - spent most of their performing live (1987-1998) as two guys and a drum machine and a handful of pop culture samples. The style is somewhere between The Clash and Pet Shop Boys with punning and lyrics about Britain in the 90s. A journalist once quipped that Carter lyrics were cribbed from the London A-Z book of maps.
While remaining punky and independent in spirit, Carter USM signed to Chrysalis/EMI in order to crossover to the pop charts.
