ZION I returns to the Foundry on the first leg of their upcoming tour. Zion I are a socially conscious hip hop duo from Oakland, CA consisting of producer DJ AmpLive and MC Zumbi.

THE GROUCH is one of the founding members of the internationally infamous crew, The Living Legends. Humbly beginning on a 4-track recorder nearly 15 years ago, The Grouch has steadily grown into one of the prominent figures within the independent hip hop scene. Known for captivating his listeners with his down to earth and truthfully poignant raps and production, The Grouch has successfully released over ten solo projects, independently.
ELIGH, a self-described “genre-breaking, obsessive bass fiend” has continued to sustain himself as a salient figure for over fifteen years within the increasingly fickle and rapidly revolving world of hip-hop. The Los Angeles native has maintained his respected status by fearlessly veering from the traditional trajectory which is often limited to beats and rhymes.
VOKAB KOMPANY are 2 MCs/Singers from San Diego who infuse electronic hip hop, hip hop, electronica, soul, and funk. Their new critically acclaimed album, VKCE is a collaborative effort with up and coming production / musician duo CRUSH EFFECT that fills a void at the intersection of the hip hop and EDM worlds.
