Erie PA has seen quite a change in its Underground Music scene over the last 10 years. In the spring of 06 Producer, DJ and Founder of 814 Bass Crew, “NATASK” had found himself back in western PA, (Erie) with an opportunity, or blank canvas as there was a huge void in Electronic Music. Right around the same time period there were also a whole new group of emerging MCs. Both groups struggled to find an outlet, or a stage to present their talents within their Local city scape. As time went on 814 BASS Crew was established and began hosting a variety of events featuring some of the most cutting edge DJs from around the world, all while slowly working the MC culture into these shows. As this was all going down 2189 Skateboardshop Founder “Iggy” Imig, began a series of underground Hip Hop shows, also hosting Talent from all around the US…. as both scenes emerged, it was only natural that there would be some overlap and collaboration. One of the current Hip Hop Acts that have been on the Up and up, hosting tracks with Veteran MCs from around the state Like BEEDIE and JOHN QUEST, is HOLLAH HOUSE. MACK BOYER, of the Hollah House Crew is now dropping this first Single with Producer and DJ, NATASK titled “Never Shook”. With a choice break, Deep Bass and Sultry String arrangements, have a Listen as Mack goes in with laments to his youth, and come up…. much like the scenes these two artists represent.
