The Domino Effect
The Domino Effect
Hailing out of the Midwest, specifically St. Louis, Missouri, The Domino Effect brings a refreshing vibe, aura, and sound to the city and hip-hop on a musical aspect. Influenced by artists such as Outkast, N*E*R*D, A Tribe Called Quest, Lupe Fiasco, Little Brother, Clipse, and more, it’s not too difficult to notice that their sound is truly unique and demands attention nonetheless. The Domino Effect isn’t for a chain reaction, it’s more in the sense that if you’re creating good art, then never be afraid to express it in any form that you choose to make it.

The alternative hip-hop duo (Cue & Steve N. Clair) officially formed in late 2008, but have a history going back to adolescence attending the same middle and high schools, but please refrain from labeling them just as rappers. Steve has a bachelors degree from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in Mass Communications Television/Film and has several visual works accredited to his name and Cue has bachelors degree from Fontbonne University in Sports Management (he also played baseball there for 4 years) and has several production works accredited to his name. These are not your ordinary MCs.

Residing in a city where the music scene is flooded with talent, yet doesn’t get the recognition it deserves, The Domino Effect adds to that attack of hidden talent embarking a style that stands out from the rest and won’t shy away from tackling subjects such as poverty, racism, politics, and the media. Their unique sound and fearless, yet inspiring lyricism puts them in their own category alone. Recent achievements by the duo include best group/duo & best producer (Cue ColdBlooded) for the 2016 SlumFest Awards, a nomination for best group by the Riverfront Times in 2015, Top 6 STL artists to watch (Steve N. Clair) by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (2016), and Delux Magazine’s 2015 top 10 albums of the year (The Introspections of Steve N. Clair). The Domino Effect also have shared the stage with National Recording Artists such as Talib Kweli, Freddie Gibbs, Dee-1, & J.R., & has since released 8 studio projects since their start in 2008. Stay tuned for what The Domino Effect has in store!
Dante Wolf
Dante Wolf
Wolfe has been a recording artist since the formation of M.M.E in 2009. He finished his Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre at Lehigh University in 2016.

Wolfe released his first mixtape "The Black Leather T.A.P.E." January 20th, 2015. The project showcases the St. Louis MC fully coming into his own as an artist, with an uncanny ability to vocally encapsulate the essence of Hip-Hop’s Golden era. While also finding a balance with a critical look on the symptoms and solutions of destructive social issues of today.

Danté champions a style of soulful Hip-Hop with a sharp edge. The mixtape was followed by his first independent album, The God Complex. Which was released on January 4th, 2016. "The God Complex" shows Wolfe breaking new ground as an artist and delivering a concise, strong body of work.

For his third official release Danté Wolfe presents his second independent album "Carlton Ave", an album that highlights the St. Louis rapper in complete control of his craft and at the height of his game. At only 24 years old the already prolific Wolfe displays a maturity and creative vision typically attributed to more seasoned and veteran writers/performers. As an album, Carlton Ave is a bold statement piece and further proof of the young MC’s continued artistic growth both lyrically, stylistically, and spiritually. Carlton Ave was released on November 28th, 2016.
J'Demul
J'Demul
St. Louis raised Trevon McCray - better known as J'Demul - has overcome many life struggles in his life. The 20-year-old emcee began his influential journey by listening to Hip-Hop artist Scarface, which highly influenced his songwriting ability. Through remaining dedicated to his craft of emceeing, his growth as an artist has provided him the opportunity to learn and value the essentials of Hip-Hop.

At the early age of 12, J'Demul witnessed the horrific murder of his cousin. Through that terrible life experience and crafting his skills as an emcee, the maturity of life experiences are displayed throughout his content. That specific life experience and similar ones are easily heard throughout his collection of work - "95 95s", "June", "Black Poet" and "#STLAVE." While gaining a reputation for giving incredible live performances, J'Demul has performed on various platforms including A3C, Riverfront Times Music Showcase, VIBESSTL, and more.

The 2016 Riverfront Times Hip-Hop Artist nominee is currently promoting his latest release, #STLAVE, a 14-track album that provides as a follow up to his last offering, Black Poet EP. With the release of #STLAVE, J'Demul plans to hit the road and touch as many as stages as possible. He states, "my dream is to show the world what I can do and make them fall in love with my music.
