Technology has always played a pivotal role in music. Lately, it’s helped like minded artists create music on their own terms. L.A. based MCs TiRon & Ayomari are the latest to be brought together digitally. Through Yahoo chat, they discovered a similar approach to living life and making music. And that union has produced an energetic brand of hip-hop that draws on influences ranging from Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, and Jack Kerouac. After a series of mixtapes, they released their first full length A Sucker For Pumps in September 2011. Delving into the nuances of relationships that hip-hop often overlooks, TiRon & Ayomari drop insightful and playful lyrics over lively production. This is heard in the lead single for ASFP “All My Love” ft. Yummy Bingham.

Following the success of ASFP, they just dropped the strong collection HNGRY, showcasing the talents of their cohort The Cafeteria Line. Again, TiRon & Ayomari show that they are set to be around the game for a long time. They bring that energy to our very own CMJ Showcase, “The Circus” at Drom October 6th 9-1AM. It will be free for CMJ Badge holders and $10 for non-badge holders. Tickets can be bought here.
