People Under The Stairs – Casbah Show Tuesday

People Under The Stairs – Casbah Show Tuesday


Los Angeles based People Under The Stairs, Double K (Michael Turner) and Thes One (Christopher Portugal), are the most successful fully independent hip hop duo in the history of Hip-Hop.  Since their initial full length release in 1998, People Under The Stairs have performed more than a thousand sold out shows, festivals and world tours spanning 6 continents and 40 countries.

With a strong DIY ethic, “The P”, as they are referred to by their fans, have self managed, produced and engineered 7 full-length albums and countless singles and side projects. The musical sensibility punctuating their unique brand of hip-hop has not only earned them the title “The Steely Dan of Rap Music” but consistent critical acclaim and numerous appearances on the Billboard Charts.  Their illustrious career includes an appearance on The Simpson’s 20th Anniversary Special, a John Peele Session at Abbey Road, and groundbreaking performances at key festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and Bonaroo, the last of which was noted by SPIN magazine as “Simply the best performance of Friday… Period”.  As part of their 10 year Anniversary World Tour in 2009, People Under The Stairs travelled to new continents with sold out shows in China, Brazil and South Africa and continue to tour through 2010 as they work on their 8th Studio album.  As they declared at the closing of their main stage set at the Outside Lands Festival, “We’re the P, the ethnic Beastie Boys – and we aren’t done. We’re gonna’ keep bringing this party, this party rockin’ hip-hop to you when you need it. We’ll be there.”

During these years, he could be found exchanging his time for vinyl at Groove Records and Siesta Records. 

He often worked for trade, to support his vinyl addiction. He currently owns over 8,000 records. "Listening to my father's albums is when it all began. Flipping through the stacks, cleaning off the LP, placing the needle on the record, reading the lyrics, studying the artwork, and enjoying the rich analog sound. Sure, there are occasional pops & you might have to clean the record. You actually have to flip the record at the end of the side. It's not a play list or program on shuffle. You are present, involved, and engaged in the listening process. 
Please Keep Vinyl Alive & Support Local Artists!"
