Super Duty Tough Work (CA)

Golden-era taste, future-era based. Tylenol 3 for capitalist migraines, resistance-based debauchery for fed-up baddies. Rooted in the tradition of Black American resistance arts, Super Duty Tough Work is known to entertain and inspire, all while employing scathing wit and unflinching analysis to push their radical politic of revolution, party and bullshit. Inspired by the dirty jazz loop sound of 90s east coast hip hop, Super Duty Tough Work are the live incarnation of hip hop culture’s quintessential era, appearing as a band but manifesting a sound that’s more akin to something straight out of an MPC or SP-404 sampler.
Revered for their methodically curated sets, SDTW mixes laidback rap action and razor-sharp delivery with effortless loops
sewn together with surprising transitions, keeping audiences on their feet and transfixed in anticipation as to what’s coming next. ”We operate using the Ghostface method,” says frontman Brendan Grey. ”It’s pretty simple: get some dope beats, say some fly shit.”
Simply put: internationalism is the theme, liberation through hedonism is the dream, and satisfaction is guaranteed from the team whose specialty is taking audiences on a journey through a culture where loops are slayed and jewels are the tools of the trade.
After simmering in the underground as a live show only act for years, their debut release ’Studies in Grey’ was long listed for the 2019 Polaris Prize (making them the first Manitoba-based hip hop act to be nominated for a Polaris), followed by a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Best Rap & Hip Hop.
The group is currently in the final stages of completing their follow up offering, to be released with the support of Toronto-based Next Door Records in Spring of 2023.
