Aeronaut is a post-rock/instrumental band from St. Louis, MO. Aeronaut was formed when Joel Kelly (@JKi) and Zach Grzeskowiak (@skov) were both looking for something more than the music they were playing. They both has strong influences from Ambient/Instrumental bands, and hadn't really heard anything that exact style in their local scene. They got together and jammed in mid 2011, and have been playing as Aeronaut ever since.

My Inspiration is Just life in general, most of my music talks about life situations. I’m inspired by things that I have ... more experienced, saw and heard others go through. I try to be universal with my music, can’t really place me in one style of rap. Also I’m inspired by other great artist, nothing like good competition…sad to say, it’s not much of that
Calhoun born Cameron Shamar Hillman(December 11,1987) is an upcoming artist out of St.Louis. He was raised in a single household by his mother along with his two older brother's.He graduated from Hazelwood West in May of 2007. After he graduated he finally made his decision to take his music very serious. He has a unique style and flo which bring many to his attention. Listening to his music you couldn't tell that he was from "Da Lou". He is universal and dedicated to each style that he performs when he is in the booth or on stage. He does poetry at St.Louis Happy Hour for the moment. He is currently in contract talks with a local record company who are also talking to major labels at the moment. His former rap group "T.O.G." which is basically more of a way of life than a group was put on hold cause of difficult timing.Look for more to come by Calhoun. Also look for a website coming soon, but in the mean time enjoy the music and look for more to come. GOD BLESS from CALHOUN...
Hystory is originally from Chicago, which has had a big influence on his music. He began writing rhymes at the tender age of 8 after a friend’s father motivated him with three bucks a verse! What kid wouldn’t want to write down some rhymes to make his pockets fatter?! But all jokes aside, it wasn’t the $3 that really drove Hystory into becoming the artist that he is today. As a teenager Hystory moved to St.Louis with his mother."Chicago is the city of mobsters and pimps so the city oozes game. U pick up on it become a slick talker and picking out the real from the fake comes natural.St.Louis is smaller and a little slower so adapting was easy. I became a man here this my 2nd home i embody both" that was his response when asked how living both places has influenced his music the passion and life circumstances that kept him going. If you listen closely to his songs, you can hear the emotion and the pain in his voice from some of the experiences he’s had on his come up. When asked about his accomplishments and what he’s most proud of, he simply had this to say:
"I'm very happy with what I’ve done so far, but I cannot yet say that I am proud of myself. Not to sound ungrateful, but I am afraid to feel satisfied because it can lead to laziness and complacency. Because of this, I tend to focus on how I can improve or how I could have performed better. This keeps my game sharp and my mind focused."
This attitude has helped to keep his music efforts progressive and has opened doors to several big opportunities recently. He released a mixtape titled "Papers N' Pipes" which dropped on 4/20/12 kickin off the Step Or Get Left movement. Now Hystory is set to deliver what he promised would be nothing short of a classic "Dysfunctional Family" with SOGL (Step Or Get Left) mate @Lz. He's lyrical, his delivery is keen, his adaptive sound can catch nearly anyone’s attention, and his hunger for success is something to be respected.
Stay tuned and be on the lookout! Follow Hystory on Twitter http://twitter.com/Hystory_STL

L-Gifted didn't choose to rhyme, rhyming chose him. The middle child of a working class family from just outside East St. Louis, it would be easily understood if Gifted succumbed to the struggle of life. From an early age he learned to defend himself. A quiet kid whose temper was on a hair-pin trigger, he has grown into a mature and humble artist.
L-Gifted is a young man with the heart and soul of an old man. The day-to-day hardships of 9-5 life, trying to support a young daughter, balance family life & music has definitely taken it's toll and is clearly evident in the tone and subject matter of his music.
L-Gifted has taken his lumps & bruises and paid his dues in music as well as life. 30 stitches in his face before the age of 22 are the physical manifestation of those dues. With the knowledge of an elder, he knows dues are never fully paid and he will surely get knocked down again. However, Gifted will always muster the strength to overcome adversity and invites his listeners to follow suit.
Despite the harsh realities of L-Gifted's life his music sends a positive message to the listener. The voice of an underdog who isn't known for barking but, whose bite can be quite vicious... Gifted inspires others to take the stresses of their lives and use it as fuel to Subtract Negativity.
A Middle Eastern American trying to bring change to the music industry as well as the world we reside in.

my name is of the sun. i have gone by of the sun since 2009, and was first inspired to use the name after reading an article on “metaphor of the sun” which basically says that the sun is illumination, but not in the common sense of the word. illumination refers to intellectual illumination, the nature of ultimate reality, and how knowledge is acquired concerning it.

"RT-FaQ" is a modern musical artifact bound to be discovered by today's contemporary music archaeologists.
Ramel "RT-FaQ" Prince was born into adversity in East St. Louis during the late 80's. At 2 months old, both parents were incarcerated and at 2 years old young he was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street – breaking his leg.
The family moved to Minneapolis after his mother returned from prison which would be the first of several moves and would lead RT-FaQ to discover his love of music via drum lessons and an old VHS tape of a Michael Jackson concert. In High School, basketball became the priority for Ramel and music took a backseat. After graduating he moved back to East St. Louis and attended community college for a short stint before heading on to New Orleans where Bourbon Street reignited Ramel's passion for music. Recording on a small notebook computer with a closet-studio, he found himself quickly drawing the adoration of local supporters.
RT-FaQ would eventually return to East St. Louis where he would continue to refine his craft. Growing into performing shows 3-4 times per week he quickly built relationships with other artists, including his Doorway associate – @Whiteout. The two recorded their first single On & On which was just the beginning of several collaborations and a musical enedeavor that continues to go On & On...
Im an artist and I go by Samsâra. Samsâra is the inevitable and continuous cycle of birth, and the consequent decay and death in which everything in the universe participates in. It is, in a way, the perpetual suffering of what we call LIFE. I make instrumental post-rock music on guitar and I hope to enlighten your souls to a nirvana status. I will have some music up for you guys soon. Until then..... keep inspiring the world with your music and never stop having fun with it.... no matter how simple or ornate your style is.
Charles Crape, better known as "S.D. The Dizzleman" (Hip-Hop) is the collective's most interesting man. He doesn't always rap in a crew but, when he does... it's Doorway. While The Dizzleman certainly has street ties, his raps are not the typical street raps you'd expect. S.D. is versatile with his words and delivery and in-between serious glances, you'll often catch him cracking jokes and wildin out on stage. Aside from that, we're all still wondering exactly what The Dizzleman's true story actually is... which only adds to his allure.
swaggin even in my sleep YEAAAAA
i help run this here town breh. i write all the content and drink smoothies. hay what up

View Askew is a hip-hop artist from St. Louis, Missouri. The middle child of five brothers, Jeffrey Corrigan was born in 1986. He grew up in Normandy until 1998 when his father received a settlement for being in an accident at work. A trailer slid down a hill after not being properly secured while his Dad and other employees were inside it. With the money, View's father "Tiger" relocated the family ten miles north to Florissant, Missouri.
While attending Hazelwood West middle school he met Adam Turner (@Hystory), Jeffrey Dean (@Bovember24th), Devon Southerland (@Lz) and manager Anthony Keossel. The three of them went by H.B.N, which stood for Hustlers by Nature. Fortunately, the dad of childhood friend Paul Gambill had a studio in his home, so they would record anytime Paul's parents left town.
View tells me about how he first started rapping "See when I was 14, 15 like a lot of kids my age I tried to smoke pot as much as I could" he laughs. "It's was like you could never get high enough, it's crazy looking back." "The first pot dealer I used to hang out with would not let me smoke with him unless I rapped. So we sat in his basement, rapped over 'The Carter 2' and smoked blunts. I was never serious about it", he says. "It was like a party favor 'hey jefster spit a flow.' the older people I hung out with called me 'jefster from the midwester' because I rapped."
After high school, View was introduced to Pink Floyd by childhood friend, Matt Altman. His whole outlook changed on music. He says the time he spent listening to music from the 60s and 70s helped him understand what music was. From Bob Dylan to The Greatful Dead to Al Green to Bob Marley to The Allan Brothers Band. Listening to the past helped shape his future.
When Ant started Step or Get Left Ent. in 2012, SOGL artist @Hystory heard View spit some rhymes he'd wrote. Hys urged him to get in the studio and start perfecting his craft. Now it's a year later and View's debut project "Cheap Wine in a Dirty Glass" is slated to drop Summer of 2013. View Tells me the name came to him while drinking wine out of a smugged up glass before leaving for his fathers wake. "It just reflected the tone of the day" he says.
He's all business when it comes to his music but he has a lot of fun with it too. His music will make you smile and it will make you think. Whiteout is not just another rap artist. He is a creative, gifted and intelligent crafter of words and a beat to go with them. Listen to what Whiteout has for you and you will be able visualize what he is presenting. He has found the secret to making pictures with words.
He tells about life on the streets but goes well beyond this theme. His insight into life's pleasures and problems and everything in between is something you will relate to. This is a young man whose approach to his music reflects his outlook on so very many topics. Relationships, feelings, thoughts, ideas, plans, memories, concerns, apprehensions – it's all there to provoke you, excite you, entertain you and some of it might even confuse you. Confuse you not because of its complexity but confuse you because we all face situations when we don't know where to turn, what to do, even what to think. You're not alone in Whiteout's world.
WhiteOut is not far beyond voting age but he has devoted over half of his life not just to making music but to putting it out there where his contemporaries and other people can enjoy it. He grew up surrounded by classic rock then progressed to where rap music started gaining a hold on him but putting labels on what he does is not a high priority for Whiteout. He is what he is, call what he has for you whatever you want.
WhiteOut is Nick Menn, the son of Frank and Kristy Menn of Fairview Heights, Illinois which is just 10 minutes from downtown St. Louis across the Mississippi River. He was born on December 11, 1988 and has a brother named Matt. A graduate of Grant Middle School and Belleville East High School, Nick "Whiteout" Menn is one for whom it may be said that music is his passion but anyone feeling this way will soon realize characterizing him that way is a major understatement.
