Poetic Thrust

Poetic Thrust celebrates EP release at Elsewhere on 01.12

Hip hop collective Poetic Thrust, recent winner of our NYC Artist of the Month Poll, will be celebrating the release of their new EP at Elsewhere's Zone One on 01.12. This group is among the few hip hop acts that play fully live, a genre normally relying on beats played through a turntable or an electronic device. You can listen to their 2018 single "Salty" below.


Poetic Thrust get their feet wet with WATER ep.

Where much live band Hip Hop too often falls prey to the Jazzmatazz school of composition, Poetic Thrust utilizes inventive musicianship to distinguish themselves.  Sumptuous soundscapes provide lift and shimmy to MCs Yoh the Shaolin and ENxVE the Nameless Vagrant’s virtuosic lyricism.  It would be remiss to consider the group devoid of jazz influence altogether.  However, rather than falling into the easy trap of “writing samples” where many groups merely affect the loop style of early Hip Hop production, Poetic Thrust creates music worth sampling.  You can sample their most recent WATER ep here. - BrokeMc
