Subsoil at Funk 'n Waffles - Downtown
Subsoil is lyric-driven live Hip-Hop music. Known for their high-energy live shows, Subsoil's performance wields a keen-edge of razor-sharp lyricism, with equal emphasis on tight grooves and furious improvisations within a funky dance aesthetic. These traits have earned the band the award for "Best Live Act" in 2010 from the Rochester NY's "Insider-Metromix Magazine" and Subsoil has gained a fan base all over the upstate NY region by their relentless touring throughout the years.
Subsoil embraces musical diversity and wordplay from their front men/emcees Moon-Roc and Laz Green. Teamed with a cadre of like-minded musicians, Subsoil has grew into a self-sufficient entity whose debut full-length release entitled “Worm’s Eye View” (2009) made waves in their regional music scene of upstate NY. "Dirt Worship" (2012) was the exciting and polished follow up to their debut that pushed the band even further into more cities and markets within the East Coast of United States. Their new record "On the Bus" (2015) is available right now and is moving fast through word of mouth and online communities as their best and brightest record to date, gaining passionate attention from many new listeners and elating long time fans. With a new rhythm section, vision, and songs the future looks limitless for the band and their fans old and new!
