QuePac’s first official single debuts today, tackling the topic of alcoholism in urban culture. The song features an energetic verse by Shane MauX (of the acclaimed group, Duk Duk Goose), and artwork for the project features portraits by Eat the Cake NYC (who has worked on photo/film projects with Rex Arrow, Mac Miller, Homeboy Sandman and others). While this is QuePac’s first single, members of QuePac have been featured on Shade45, Kevin Nottingham, 8th Boro, and many other notable blogs and hip hop outlets. The new group can be found at www.soundcloud.com/quepac and www.facebook.com/quepacmusic. Their manager can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
QuePac is a collaboration between long-time Brooklyn favorites Que Cee and Paco the Dopest Nerd (also from Duk Duk Goose). The team-up sprouted out of the vibrant Bushwick music scene, where some of the most innovative sounds in Brooklyn are emerging, and from which most of their inspiration for this project is drawn. Independently, they have performed shows at major New York venues such as Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theater, Public Assembly, Sullivan Hall, as well as at out of state venues and music festivals like Afro-Punk and StereoTerra. They have a number of shows coming up in the first 3 months of 2014 including NYC’s Lit Lounge on January 22nd and Bushwick’s Paperbox on January 25th with Brooklyn Wildlife’s 12 Days of Art.
QuePac will release a new song every Sunday until the release of the “QuePac EP” on February 2nd. Updates and new tracks can be found on the facebook event for that release, or via the group’s soundcloud page.
