Curta: Indie-hop grunge space rock industrial killed poems.

A busy tour schedule plus a meticulous approach to studio work has garnered the Denver based act CURTA some attention in recent years. CURTA and producer extraordinaire 4Digit work as a band to craft singular sounding bodies of work. Click Bait, their second wide scale release, saw light in 2017 on indy labels FilthyBroke Recordings of Providence Rhode Island and internationally on the acclaimed hip hop label Hello LA in Clermont-Ferrand France. The EP boasts an unheard of feature by legendary rapper Serengeti in his alter ego Kenny Dennis as well as being the most cohesive and hard hitting bunch of songs attributed to CURTA. It is a must listen.

Whether it is a slamming synth lines or crisply sequenced drum patterns CURTA continues pedaling the unique brand of music the act is becoming known for and pushing the format further and further. Having built a name off a visceral and wildly entertaining live show, CURTA is now regularly doing national tours and has done shows in many European countries as well.

Coming soon to a place near you. You have been warned.

As a recording artist Dante’s debut solo release Roaming Empire was the most added hip hop album when it was released to college radio, and burst up to #2 on the Hip Hop charts for several weeks, helping to earn Dante’s label Havoc a distribution deal and him a spot at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin.
