League510 to release Invasion 1
After simmering down from the buzz garnered from their smash single "I'm On", Bay Area pioneers of 'Town Techno' League510 are preparing themselves for a massive invasion of fan's auditory senses in 2010. The group, which consists of emcees TK, MONT, Mr. Knowitall, and DJ Blacksmith, has a busy year ahead of them consisting of a new mixtape, a new album, and tour to top it all off.

League's as-yet-untitled new album will be released in spring 2010 and is poised to bring the town techno movement into the national spotlight. A mixtape titled Invasion Vol. 1 will be released as a precursor to the album in January. When asked about the challenges of balancing so much, Mr. Knowitall replied, "It's definitely going to be a challenge, but we're up to it. This type of opportunity doesn't come around often, so we feel blessed to be in our position."
The first mixtape track to be released is "Nightlife" feat. J-Billion and 1-O.A.K. The track is somewhat of a departure from "I'm On", League's mtvU Freshman-winning single. Hard-hitting drums instantly get your head nodding, with heavy synthesizers guiding the flow of the song. Lines like, "How we feelin'? Kanye this the good life, Chevy boy rims spinnin' in them bright lights, white right we colder than dry ice, nice white tight precise..." showcase that the group's lyricism is as important as the beat they rhyme over.
League510 will be touring in early 2010 to promote their upcoming projects. Setting off from Sacramento, the "Dope Winter Ball Tour" will stop in twelve key cities in the Western U.S. and will feature Tash of the world famous Alkaholiks, and The Bayliens.

Emcees TK, Mont, Mr. Knowitall and DJ Blacksmith better known as League510 are pioneers of a sound that is all their own, Town Techno. With a sound that is out of this world, League510's musical journey began in a galaxy far away from ours. After traveling the universe for years, they entered our galaxy and our planet shortly thereafter. With sights on our world, the quartet chose to land in the hills east of Oakland, CA. After hiding their ship deep in the hills they approached this new town with great curiosity and were immediately amazed by the vibrant culture that they found. Adopting the Bay Area scene as their new home, League510 wasted no time in beginning their new musical journey here in our world. Using advanced abilities, the four emcees quickly mastered the art of sound and gave birth to Town Techo, a form of music that would unite the people in heightened awareness; to show them to take action, to appreciate the fun in life, to believe in themselves and to believe in The League.
