Junk Research, a hip-hop duo hailing from Brooklyn, makes music that’s often laced with witty, sometimes outrageous laughter that serves alongside organic, quirky beats and well-crafted, often sociopolitical lyrics. MC Baje One and manufacturer DJ Snafu was raised jointly in Brooklyn, and in early 2005, they gained car firm Scion’s NextUp Tune Contest making use of their monitor “Streets,” which gained them a advertising offer that included a completely funded and journey music video aimed by Andrew Gura, who acquired done movies for artists such as for example Madlib, MF Doom, and Nas. Around that point they completed their debut LP, Nourishing Einstein, which captured the eye of DJ Ese and Brooklyn-based Embedded Information, and premiered in November of 2005 to important acclaim. Their sophomore record, Gran’Dad’s Nerve Tonic, arrived in Oct 2007 on Inserted Music/Definitive Jux. To market it, Junk Research and Brooklyn brewery Six Factors Craft Ales made a limited-release brew, obtainable in a restricted bottling and on touch in pubs and restaurants around N.Con.C., to coincide using the release from the album.
