Not much is known about this underground hip-hop crew. Their recorded output consists of two independent releases: a cassette demo from 1997, and a full-length CD in 2004 with the moniker shortened to simply “Remnant” (not to be confused with the indie rock band that eventually became Exeter Flud).
It was in 1997 or 98 that my good friend Jay (AKA DJ Deikon) who was huge into underground holy hip-hop introduced me to them. I was immediately intrigued by their creative backing tracks and atypical lyrical flow. While I don’t know much more about the group–not even where they were from–we do know that members collaborated with all sorts of artists including Sev Static, Tunnel Rats, KJ-52, Ohmega Watts, and Dirt, among others. And of their producers has also worked with huge mainstream acts like Killer Mike, Big Boi, Lil John, Outkast and more.
Recommended if you like underground and/or alternative forms of hip-hop.
