The Hydrophonic Crew / Bio

The Hydrophonic Crew (T.H.C.) officially started in the summer of 1998. The Hydrophonic Crew was originally a DJ group consisting of Primo B and Nick White. T.H.C. performed shows all over Southwest Michigan and opened up for the area's biggest hip hop and rock bands. At the same time they started performing @ all Rumble House shows in Kalamazoo @ CLUB SODA. They would DJ in between sets to get the crowd moving. THC eventually started it's own clothing line in 2000 and went on to sell thousand's of shirts, hats, etc. In 2001 The Hydrophonic Crew decided to become a hip hop group. They started writing and recording all original music and getting ready for live shows but soon Nick would decide to leave the group. In 2002 the remaining member, Primo B, met and started writing music with Fort Wayne Indiana's own Custom Made Smitty. It was a match made in heaven. Primo invited Custom Made to be a part in the group and he accepted. They worked non-stop on a new c.d. and material for live shows, and in spring of '03 started performing live around Indiana. from 2003-2006 THC played hundreds of live shows and recorded numerous songs with local producers. During that time Primo B, Custom Made, and brothers Jake and Jes Farris started the record label Hometown Hooligans. The Hooligan label prospered over the next 3 years adding artists to their roster such as Massakre, DJ Epitaph, A.C., Portable J, and Konfewshus. In 2005 Custom Made Smitty became a father to twin girls and in the summer of 2006 Primo B decided to take a break from THC and the Hooligans to get married and start a family while Custom Made continued to work on music with the Hooligans. In 2011, after a half decade break, Primo B and Custom Made Smitty started to talk about a comeback. In the spring of 2012 THC started writing new music and recording for an upcoming album and mixtape. They Hydrophonic Crew is almost ready to come out of retirement for 2013.
