DXTR Spits
DXTR Spits
Born and raised in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia), Jordan “Dxtr Spits” Holmes relocated to Chicago to continue developing artistically and find some new adventures . Dxtr is an Engineer/Scientist by day which inspires his scientific approach to music, spoken word, and entrepreneurship. He was mentored by Dr. Nikki Giovanni at Virgina Tech which helped to propel his confidence in his craft. Artistically Dxtrs style and content creates an experience that expresses his struggles with the concept of free will. He has chosen to live his life like an experiment and control the product that he becomes.
Leaf Set
Leaf Set
Leaf Set was born in a basement. From the origin of the rap rock duo Kwame Akil and Jordan Dillman, it has blossomed into a full fledged creative collective. With the addition of a photographer, a graphic designer and a pen and ink artist, they set out to cover the artistic map with every medium. The progression of the band called for a more full, dynamic sound. The addition of bass work from Dave Giro and percussion from Dax gives the band a classic 4 piece vibe. Powerful riffs, syncopated drums and self reflective lyrics give you an insight into a day in the life with the set.
Ten Toes Down
Ten Toes Down
Ten Toes Down is a collective of Chicago musicians working to bridge the gap between activism and music. We work organizing protests and workshops against the oppressive Chicago police department, as well as performing protest music and music that depicts our experience of growing up in Chicago.
