Falling on Deaf Judges Ears

Deaf Judges are a four man hip hop crew out of Athens, Georgia consisting of three MCs (Rorshak, Produce Man and Louie Carlysle) and one DJ/ producer (Cubenza).

This conglomeration of talent pulls together vast influences from all over the musical map into a secret formula that exhibits the freewheeling fun of the old-school eighties together with the grimy lyric-driven pulse of nineties NY underground. All of this is spiced with a distinctly Southern flavor that is undeniable, while at the same time far removed from the regional sounds of their dirty south contemporaries.

Their album, All Rise is like a trip back...way the days when hip hop was young and groups like 3rd Bass were blowing up. If you take that and mix it with the contemporary influences of Jurassic 5 you've kind of got an idea of what Deaf Judges are all about.
