Hip-hop artists and producers Andy Lugo and Face One (above left, right with host Kelsey Hanrahan) hit up 'Rocket Shop' on 5/4/11. Their brand new album features Andy Lugo on vocals and guitar and beats and production by Face One. The duo celebrates their album release with a performance May 14th at Radiobean.
We were also joined by local MCs Humble and S.K. who performed live alongside the duo on The Radiator airwaves. Both Andy Lugo and Face One are involved in other musical projects. Andy Lugo plays acoustically and in local band 2nd Agenda. "I've always had an affinity for the music Lugo makes," says Face One, "and our friendship is constructed by music. We get each other in that way. So I turned him on to some of what I was doing musically and we decided to work together. From there, things fit naturally." Lugo was excited to work with Face One on making beats so he could fully focus on his lyrics. That effort is apparent on "Little City," a track chronicling the story of Lugo's time in Burlington.
Here's what you heard on 'Rocket Shop':
1) Andy Lugo & Face One, "Little City" (album version)
