J.O.B. (Just Ova Broke) w/ Felix Fast4ward
J.OB.
...A Tribe Called Quest tale foretold that in the fall of 2010, four music legends would join together and fulfill a musical prophecy.. mc Vaughn Helm and a group of young men swore that together they could change the musical perception of hip hop forever... Diggin in the crates for a little touch of that old school fury, Just Ova Broke is a cross-bridge between a live band set and a straight mc/dj set. Using samples to compliment their live band feel makes them a unique alternative to hip hop in any area. "A little bit of west coast flavor mixed with an east coast mentality demonstrates the different styles J.O.B. possesses, and gives a little foresight into the homage J.O.B. hopes to pay to it's many influences." - Coloradoan - They are always Just Ova Broke and J.O.B. is a concoction of everything that has ever influenced hip hop in a positive way.. The jams that make you wanna say "Fu-la-la-la" or "I'm cool like that" or "Can I kick it?". J.O.B. has had several opportunities to take their act out of Colorado, but have refused to leave until everyone in their home town understands how important changing the scene in Colorado is to them. They love the C.O. and plan to represent Colorado's relevant, and intelligent hip hop for a long time. Colorado's finest is beginning to make a name for itself with their phenomenal live performances and intricate style of presenting versions of both past and present hip hop.

Felix Fast4ward
Felix Ayodele aka FelixFast4wrd Born in Evanston, Illinois March 12th 1982. Moving to Houston,Tx in the early 90's the young Illinois native began to displayed an interest in art and music, after seeing The "DMC U.S. Finals of 1998" on vhs. He began putting together "Battle routines" he developed and competed using his idiosyncratic prowess with vinyl scratching and compostition. Along with handed down records from his parents (who both Immigrated to the U.S. from Nigerian) he was provided with a wealth of music education, these records would be injected interestingly into his creation process. The records/and people that were around him would influence the traditional musician within, from prog-rock records including Yes,King Crimson,Camel to Afrobeat Music, Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti down to Jazz Hero's from Sun-Ra to Ornette Coleman,all serendipitously creating a recipe for the modern producer/musician.

Enter FelixFast4wrd: Turntablist/Multi-Instrumentalist/Vocalist. Along side intense turntable technique and musical intuition coupled with juxtaposing obscure records that seemingly do not fit together Fast4ward creates lush & soulfully Imaginative improvised compositions. Using a Looper and various other instruments ie. flute,guitar,harmonica,melodica,and keyboards, and topping it off with his voice (both singing and rapping) Fast4wrd reinvents the "One-Man Band" format and creates a whole new framework allowing the audience to get to influence & see his music being created piece by piece. With a quirky and unique blend of avant-pop sensibilities and a wildly vivid musical pallet to draw from, FelixFast4ward delivers to you a rare breed of contemporary artistry and musicianship.
