Show Info

Phony Ppl are a visionary young band of rapper/singers, producers and musicians that are on the cutting edge of New York hip-hop's current renaissance. Fronted by founder/producer Elbee Thrie and MCs Dyme-A-Duzin and Sheriff PJ, the collective spent high school years cutting class to freestyle and produce on their school’s music equipment, and rehearsing every Friday in drummer Maffyuu’s basement, a weekly ritual that quickly became the gathering spot for all their homies. Their early demos made the rounds throughout NYC, and their first shows were in packed out loft parties that almost always got busted when the cops came. Their buzz grew as fans passed their mixtape around the city, and they quickly gained a reputation for their blend of live instrumentation and eccentric production that birthed a sound all their own—the soulful chords of “I Wish I Was A Chair” or the cinematic boom-bap of “Statues” showcase both sides of their ever-evolving hip-hop/R&B dualism. Over the past year they dropped two projects, a full album "Phonyland" and an EP "Nothing Special," to industry acclaim. The UK caught it first: tastemaker Giles Peterson threw them in rotation on BBC radio and MTV UK struggled to describe their sound: "imagine the rebirth of 90s neo-soul, created by a premature N.E.R.D. and The Roots, sprinkled with the massive hip-hop talents of J Dilla, Flying Lotus and Kanye West?" The crew have brought their dynamic live show to stages across the country over tours with Theophilus London in 2011 and The Roots in 2012, as well as opening slots for Black Star, Miguel and Erykah Badu, as well as appearances at major festivals like Brooklyn’s Afropunk Fest and DC’s Trillectro. It’s no wonder their show has been praised by outlets like Huffington Post, Complex Magazine and the Village Voice. Bed-Stuy's own Phony Ppl are excited to announce "WAKE UP," their new monthly residency this summer at the Brooklyn Bowl. The hybrid party/jam session will bring together the most exciting young artists, producers and DJs
