Hip Hop duo Down A Third stopped by 'Rocket Shop' this past Wednesday night to regale our crew with some of their beats, rhymes and VT flava. With tracks spun by Erik Jefferis (right in photo) and flows dropped by Aaron Levison (left), Down A Third is a unique duo that's all about keeping their tracks good and funky.

Both Aaron and Erik are from Richmond, VT. After bonding over love for quality hip-hop, R&B, jazz, and funk, they felt a collaboration was most necessary. With a recent show at On The Rise bakery and restaurant in Richmond, the group is looking to take things to the next level with more shows around Burlington. They're not picky though - they promise to deliver bumpin' shows at venues and house parties alike.

While on Rocket Shop, Down A Third performed a couple tracks of their recent album, 'Aaron Levison and Erik Jefferis Are Down A Third'.  To download their full album, book them for a performance, or other information on the group, check out
