Brooklyn’s “Alt-Hop” group Das Racist has a new video-single “Brand New Dance“. They’ve been burning up the underground since 2010 with the release of their mixtapes Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man. In late 2011, they made a real professional splash by dropping the album Relax. Heems, Kool A.D., and hypeman Dap are well known for their unconventional yet humorous hipster approach to the indie hip-hop genre. These cats are basically a multi-media art project (releasing mixtapes, videos, 8 bit video games and blog editorials). They’ve been getting a lot of love from the big dogs (Spin, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork). Keep your eye out for these crazy characters in 2012.
