"The Mechanics" by Falside & Juan Deuce  Reply with quote  

Juan Deuce & Falside are New England's most exciting, active & talented hiphop duo in the past decade. Buhleedat. It's really good to see some local cats get some love outside of the New England area.

Check their new project, "The Mechanics", product page here: http://tinyurl.com/TheMechanics

THIS IS AN SFR EXCLUSIVE! Limited quantities, all numbered and signed.

In your opinion, who was the most active, exciting, and talented New England due of the previous decade?

Of last decade? That was an incredibly active period for New England hiphop. I think my favorite unsung rap duo was Roolette. But in the past 5 years there was a serious drop off in activity. It's just really nice to see two RI cats acting as a team and making some serious noise outside of the state.

The people on my facebook page are going kinda bonkers over this. Very nice to see.

Something we didn't mention originally, there is a free mp3 download that gets emailed to you as soon as the purchase is made. We're also doing this with a lot of other albums.

this song is so bananas. I really love it. This is the kind of heart-warming surprise I like to feel when I give an artist I've never heard a real listen. I'm a fan now. Great work.

Big feature in the Phoenix:

http://providence.thephoenix.com/music/133278-juan-deuce-and-falside-get-down-to-work-as-the-mec/

By CHRIS CONTI | January 31, 2012

The stars have aligned and the Rap Gods must be smiling down at Juan Deuce and Falside. Business is picking up in a big way for this gifted and charismatic tandem, as Strange Famous Records has jumped onboard as the exclusive distributor for the duo's debut EP, The Mechanics ($8.99 for an autographed copy and instant download via strangefamousrecords.com), which was released late last year to high acclaim. I'm all in, and couldn't agree more with the following seal of approval from SFR founder and hometown rhyme hero Sage Francis, who took the time to drop a line earlier this week. Juan Deuce has been added to the big B. Dolan show on February 11 at the PVD Social Club.

Baby-faced producer phenom Falside "the Beatsmith" concocts musty funk montages and stoner-friendly neck-throbbers for Providence lyricist Juan Deuce, who has been dropping quality mixtapes over the past few years (available for free download at juandeuce.com). I was officially hooked following his 2010 mix Juance Upon a Time; from the thumping cuts "Gone" and "Swagg Back" (with frequent collaborator and Fedd Hill associate JahPan) to the old-school memories recited on the summertime classic "Ninety 3," his potential jumped off the page. Falside linked up with the Poorly Drawn People collective a few years back and quickly gained notoriety behind his "seasonal beat tapes" as well as remix and production services with indie-ground rhymers El Da Sensei, Action Bronson, and C-Rayz Walz. Juan and Falside first struck last year with "Hard Luck," and the matchup with video producers Ricky Shabazz & the Boom Bap Boys has led to some memorable clips, including the video for "Guts," the first single off The Mechanics, with Juan and Fal woozily navigating through a night of fucked-up druggery. For a true taste of Juan Deuce's entertaining insanity, I implore you to look up his latest video exposť with Shabazz, a two-minute banger titled "Krill Pill" (produced by local turntablist DJ Mekalek). Deuce exudes charisma in droves and can leave the listener hanging on that punchline, sometimes shrouded in goofball charm. If the outstanding EP tracks "Hey DJ," "Kings," and the appropriately-titled "Frank and Dean" (that's the kind of perfect pairing we're talking about here) are any indication of what's to come from these two, we're in for something special when they wrap up their full-length debut, set for release later this year.

When Sage Francis signs off on your product, ears tend to perk up. I checked in with Sage for a line or two and he came through with a particularly ringing endorsement.

"I've been keeping tabs on Juan Deuce and Falside for a few years now . . . In the past year [Falside's] hustle has been impossible to ignore.

"Juan gave me his Help Juanted CD a couple years ago and I really liked it. The rhyming ability was evident, but it's the vocal charisma that caught my ear, an intangible quality that most emcees lack.

"People can slave over multi-syllabic rhyme schemes and concepts all they want, but if they can't deliver the words with charisma then it's all for naught. That said, being a great emcee doesn't necessarily make one a great songwriter, nor a great recording artist. However, when those elements begin to overlap, special things start to happen.

"That's what we're beginning to see with the collaboration between Falside and Juan Deuce," Francis said. "It also helps that they are great friends, and that connection really shines . . . Falside is enigmatic and, especially after seeing them together in videos, I think the fans are itching to see them together on stage.

"I had Juan open up the last time I played the Met and was pleasantly surprised to see that he had a grasp of showmanship, which is rare in our parts as far as rappers go.

"I haven't been this excited about a new hip-hop group in quite some time, and the fact that they're a local group creating a significant buzz outside of our state makes it especially awesome for me."

Yep, what he said.

I know tha the doors to SFR signings have been closed, but is there any chance these cats get the opportunity for a full-length in house? I really like what I hear, especially since I've been fairly underwhelmed by a lot of contemporary rap artists. This is high quality music through and through.

They're currently working on a full length. I haven't heard any of it yet, but I'm itching to. Whatever ends up happening, we'll be representing them hard at SFR.
