RADIx have already managed to top all collage radio charts in 2005 with their 12” vinyl single “Rush” b/w “DJ/Emcee” taken from the forthcoming The Staple. This endeavor is nothing new to RADIx as Quite Nyce’s first solo 12” release “Nyce Like That” also charted #1 in it’s first two weeks in August of 2003.
Showcasing the ability to perform outside the studio, RADIx have shared stages alongside the likes of Kool G Rap, Talib Kweli, Sage Francis, MixMaster Mike, Afu Ra, 7L & Esoteric and many others. In doing so, they have induced a broad spectrum of eclectic fans ranging from hip hoppers to indie punk rockers by performing for thousands at the 28th Annual Rock Steady Crew Event and Vans Warped Tour; best known for it’s eleven years of giving exposure to punk bands.
The Hustle doesn’t stop there as RADIx are also the featured artists on the newest Shadyville mixtape “Prelude To The Staple” hosted by DJ Opal, which also features illustrated cover art of RADIx members Quite Nyce & Seek designed by Shomi (designer for Neptunes / N.E.R.D.)
In addition RADIx have witnessed the exponential growth of a hometown buzz since receiving spins on commercial stations in Boston, MA (JAMN 94.5 and HOT 97.7) and continued radio play for the city’s newest hometown anthem entitled “Jus’ Believe”, a definitive Red Sox tribute freestyle by RADIx over Fabulous’ “Breathe” instrumental complete with play-by-play rhyming. This track is also dominating the local DJ mixtape circuit in New England.
The Song “DJ/Emcee” was a featured finalist chosen by Activision’s WorldWide Executive of Music during this year’s 40th annual Midem Music Conference in Cannes, France for the True Crime Video Game soundtrack licensing / listening session. The song was selected from over 100 submissions and played live for over 140 record label execs, A&Rs, and major players in the music industry from all around the world. The song is an ode to hip hop culture, produced by Dr. SixShot with cuts from The RockSteady Crew’s own DJ JS1.
At the RADIx of these milestones are emcees Quite Nyce & Seek and the album that holds them all together is The Staple!
"Radix showcases the sort of teamwork that brought home the championship. With two MCs connecting like David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez, this one’s a celebratory must have.”
– Chris Faraone (The Boston Herald)
"They got the tightest flows, they got the hot beats, they got that real hip-hop... Listen up!!"
