Zeph & Azeem back Souls of Mischief

zeph and azeem_m.reamer.jpg

In the San Francisco Bay Area, DJ Zeph and Azeem enjoy enviable reputations. The former gets props as a crate-digger, club DJ and turntablist. The latter is an acclaimed spoken-word and performance artist as well as a dextrous MC who has collaborated with Anti-Pop Consortium and Michael Franti, among many others.

Unfortunately, when the duo teamed up, the resulting Rise Up (issued on Om Records in May) didn’t make much noise outside of the West Coast. It’s like that sometimes…not every artist, no matter how talented, gets to go national and blow up. But next month, the rest of the country — or at least the eastern seaboard — will get a chance to see what it’s missed when Zeph & Azeem opens for Souls of Mischief, and then throw down at the annual Scribble Jam bonanza in Cincinnati, Ohio.
