Streetlight San Jose Show said some nice things about us...

Not to generalize about Santa Cruz MCs or anything, but did you ever notice that Santa Cruz MCs have a lot to say? Dense verbiage is the rule of the land, and Eliquate is no exception. He's both wordy and worldly, stepping to the mic with a laid-back flow that rolls like a wave but doesn't break for anything. In his song "The Nineties," he claims he would have "made it" in that decade, and he's probably right. His sound is live alt-rock meets alt-hop, with the emphasis on riffs and drums instead of beatmaking. With the '90s' imminent comeback, he shouldn't have long to wait before a bunch of white guys goofing in their basement with catchy raps, guitars, a monkey and the occasional zombie is cool again. - Steve Palopoli
