About: From the underbelly of Cleveland's blackened music scene rises a brazen group of innovators on a quest to crumble the walls of a genre and stimulate a new generation of creative minds. Reggae-rockers, Tropidelic, untie the knots of expectation and sow together hip-hop, funk and ska in a seamless display of unbridled realism, pulling from an amalgamation of influence never before seen in the cold Midwest. The end result is an in-your-face party suited for the laid back festival-goer as much as the aggressive listener or seasoned music enthusiast. Their prowess and allure have landed them on shows and festivals like Warped Tour and Florida Music Festival, as well as with acts as diverse as The Wailers, George Clinton, Pepper, OAR, John Brown's Body, Digable Planets, Badfish, Afroman, Passafire, Ballyhoo and many more. The group has been featured on 96.5 KISS, 92.3 WKRK, 88.9 WSTB, 88.7 WJCU, & 91.3 WAPS. Their music has been used in many films and videos including a video for pro-surfer Holly Beck. Impressionistic and consuming, like a beam of light, Tropidelic rips through the lackluster cave that is today's stale music landscape, planting the flag for a new age of original artists.

"Swirling together Dub, Ska and Reggae into a dynamic, energetic mix that is also heavy on Modern Rock, Hip Hop and Funk, Tropidelic comes across like the ultimate party band. But there’s a bit more depth going on in Tropidelic’s groove, thanks in part to the sophisticated playing of the musicians and the additives served up on the turntables by Dj Mekadog" - Mike Breen (MPMF Guide presented by City Beat - Cinncinati)

Upcoming Events for Flobots

When a pair of intelligent, visionary emcees joins forces with a battle-hardened, groove-fusing rhythm section, and a classically trained violist the result is a sound that explores and expands the frontiers of live hip-hop. Progressive in both style and message, the band’s ability to drop from symphonic rock-infused crescendos into stripped-down string-laden breakbeats has earned Flobots a reputation for both originality and authenticity.

Armed with musicianship, intelligence, and an ingrained sense of rebellion, Flobots are looking to engage a new musical culture, one mind at a time.
