Drastik / Press

“What sets Drastik apart form his peers is that, unlike most rappers, he's not obsessed with machismo and materialism. Instead, he uses his sound as a vehicle to convey melodic beauty most rap purists will find enjoyable. Having already shared the stage with the likes of Trey Songz and Wale, Drastik is poised for a breakout in 2011.”

“The Austin Music Awards. Drastik #10 Top Hip/Hop Band”

“Drastik has risen to the top of the underground rap game in Austin. Whether he is on tour with artist Drake, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, or holding down a local spot with his band, Circle of Fire, Drastik can hold his own opening for some of the top artist in the game today. His latest release, an EP titled Something to Say is a blend of some serious production with hard hitting lyrics any music lover will appreciate. Drastik is no stranger to high intensity shows. Never holding back, his lyrics are profound and never meaningless. This artist is a must see for SXSW. (From Pg 33)”

“Best way I can describe Drastik is, think of your favorite alternative band and your favorite LYRICAL emcee and mash them up together with some Southern charm and you get Drastik!”

“And much like his SAT word predecessor, Drastik brings a unique sound to the world of underground hip-hop.”

“Drastik’s been in Austin opening for damn near anyone with a venue, hungry and energetic as his performance backed by a live band and his own passionaite lyrics made me a fan, and a believer.”

“My most vivid memory of listening to ["Like Raindrops"] was when I had my songs on shuffle. I was working on something and the song came on. I was like “Who is this? When did I download it?” and come to find out that it was Drastik! I was very pleased by what I heard. The track definitely had some time invested in it and it isn’t overbearing.”

“I’m a fan of this dude and you should be, too.”

“Just peeped the video and I must say I'm impressed. I'm now definitely anticipating his project.”

“Now here is something you will appreciate. This is the cover to “Circus Mirrors” the EP from Austin’s Kevin Jack and Drastik. They came together to make this one count and it does not disappoint.”

“If you’re not yet up on Kevin Jack and Drastik you should be ashamed of yourself. No really, you should. These two are steady “buzzing like the pizza man” and that buzz is only getting bigger.”

“I was blown away by their stage presence and unique style & low-key approach, which is an effort to further bridge the gap between the electronica and hip-hop genres”

“Drastik, of Home Team Records, performed as if it was a crowd he had to win over. Capturing the audience with "Everybody Watches" and "Act a Fool With It" along with a tribute to hip hop entitled "I Do It For Hip Hop"”

“First to perform was up-and-coming, Houston-based rapper Drastik of Home Team Records, -His stage presence was exceptional and it was evident he knew how to connect with the crowd from the beginning all the way to the end.”

“I highly recommend you guys listen to “Forward.” Even if you aren’t hip-hop fans, this song got something for everyone. Personally, it brought back lots of memories. It’s a flagship song to support good music. All the good music is born in the streets.”

“Drastik embodies everything and more of what a true H-town rapper is, -but what sets him apart from his peers is his hunger. He plans to change the face of Hip Hop through his artistry, but at the same time stay true to his roots.”
