New York, NY. (Top40 Charts/ DaSBro Enterprise) - Philippine hip-hop group, DiCE & k9: MOBBSTARR, will embark on a tour of the United States in early 2009 to promote their latest album, 'Time Space Rhythm Starrs'.
Hailing from Manila and Cebu in the Philippines, DiCE & k9: MOBBSTARR is comprised of Dice (Wolfren Rosaroso), Hi-C (Honeyleen Concepcion-Rosaroso) and Klumcee (Lester Va'o). The trio has definitely come into its own after four years (and four previous albums) in Manila. Having broken into the Manila scene 'wearing clothes that fit us just right,' says Dice, in contrast to the oversized shirts and baggy ultra-low jeans that everyone proclaiming hip-hop was wearing then, the group has since topped the charts as the hip-hop group that raps Japanese lyrics with a hypnotic thread of pop melody, all held together by a metallic but meandering techno beat.
The hip-hop trio's latest creation, 'Time Space Rhythm Starrs' (6000 Goonz/Upperhand Entertainment), was released in April 2008. It has been two years since they last released a full length album. Their latest collection of beats and verses is a departure from the laid back beats they have been known for.
The album's debut single and video, 'Eargasmic,' has been climbing the radio and video charts. 'Eargasmic' dishes out an infectious dance groove that will soon be an anthem in the club scene. Once again the group innovates and avoids being boxed within the constraints of one music genre.
Dice, Hi-C, and Klumcee are purveyors of reinvention and evolution. They all have the same vision for their music, which is to stretch the limits of hip-hop by merging it with pop, techno, and whatever they want to experiment with, unafraid of producing a new sound.
Lead vocalist Hi-C has been nominated for FHM magazine's (Philippines edition) '100 Sexiest Women' of 2008. The multi-talented Hi-C was featured in the August 2005 and September 2007 editions of FHM. She is one of the most popular and sexiest performers in the Philippines.
'The true essence of hip-hop is change. It's about always evolving to improve your way of living,' declares Dice.
DiCE & k9: MOBBSTARR have established a trademark sound that the listener can recognize from afar. 'It's hip-hop without any anger. It's just happy.'
