Audiopharmacy is spreading their message of consciousness and unity across the globe. The “Spare Change” tour is backed up by their newly released album, “Spare Change,” their recently dropped clothing line, “Shishin Apparel,” and their new vinyl e.p. / music video, “Prophecies.” Audiopharmacy’s performance and sound is refreshingly unique. Audiopharmacy’s live set is nourished with congas, Spanish and middle eastern style guitar, dubbish fretless basslines, turntablism, electronic and live drum kit as well as other percussions, flute, sax, melodica, ruan, two conscious MC’s, one MC/soul singer, a Brasilian songstress (female vocalist), and live acrylic artists as well.
The energy ranges from hype hip hop tracks through Latin samba vibes, dubbish/roots/reggae, to downtempo Portishead type sounds as well. Sets vary depending on show atmosphere. All musicians are diverse. A typical tour consists of the 7 piece band (band description below), a reggae/dancehall/hip hop dj, a funk/soul/hip hop dj, and two to four live painters.
With Audiopharmacy, dj Stepwise (APP San Francisco/Angel Magic/Holding Firm.) spins roots/reggae/dancehall/hip hop. Dj-“Offerings” also is in the crew, spinning mainly funk/soul/hip hop/and reggae. Both spin before/after the live sets hyping up the crowd and keeping the vibes proper. Niceone and Dee Jae Pa’este throw down acrylic paint live on stage with the band creating solid productions by the end of each set. Also, to ensure a strong fan base in every traveled city, prior to every show, Audiopharmacy Prescriptions supplies the promoters with 300 to 500 free promotional audioflyers (cds with show info printed on casing) for your promotional use. This is essential. (Audiopharmacy Prescriptions also has original illustrations, graphic design work or flyer art available.) The movement is strong.
