A hip-hop collective deeply committed to its community, savvy artistical style and fascination for urban fashion and Japanese Anime, Venture Klan continues to raise the bar with the release of their second EP, “We Good.”
And they are good indeed! With a passion for lyricism, flaming hot beats and vividly intrusive flows, the Harlem-based hip-hop group continues its emerging dominance as not just artists, but a movement as well.
Founded in 2007, by Ave Campbell and BukDaWorld, Venture Klan has forged a hip hop arsenal in the streets of Harlem that spans music, networking events, a fashion label and unique interests from anime to classic 70’s kung fu flicks.
Despite their versatility, hustle and vision, Venture Klan has brought out some of the hottest beats and rhymes to come out of Harlem in a minute.
On their opening track, “Blitz 2000,” Venture Klan brings out the sauce with pulverizing beats and a gumbo whipped flow that opens the album up perfectly. On the moonlight chiller, “Tsukuyomi,” Venture Klan displays their production expertise in full form with a deep versatile beat, gentle keys and an entrenched Asian sound that illustrates the groups reach within their artistry.
Venture Klan also has a reputation of turning shit up! With tracks such as, “Favorite Song” “Harlem” and “Bitcoin,” VK puts the pedal-to-the-medal over heavy trap beats, fueled with stinging rhymes and combative lyrics - just right to turn up.
On “Pressure” and “Reach,” Venture Klan brings out that Harlem-flow with infectious samples, razor-edged bars and head-boppin’ arrangements.
If you’d like to catch Venture Klan live, they’ll be performing their new EP this Saturday at the 2nd annual VentureMania event: a networking/performance platform for musicians, creatives and community leaders. The event will take place at the Dwyer Center on 123rd St and Nicolas Ave. Tickets currently available on EventBrite. If you're located in the New York City, we definitely recommend you check it out.
