Dangerflow doesn't need an intro from me. If you're a hip-hop fan in Miami -- or just a music lover in general -- you already know who they are.
Even if you aren't into music (like you'd be reading Crossfade if you weren't!), if you attended a game at the AAA last year to cheer on your Miami Heat, there's a good chance you may have seen them in one form or another, be it in video or live performance during the playoffs. And if somehow none of those things have reached you still, we know you recognize them from 2009's Best of Miami, where these cats won Best Caribbean Band.
For those of you that don't know what you're missing, vocalist, cowbell virtuoso, and pelvic thruster Angel Ocean would describe their sound saying, "We take Afro-Cuban drum rhythms and add a hip-hop feel. Then we blend soul and jazz to create our signature sound."
His description is spot on. Funky, jazzy, neo-souful, at times a little
Motown and always exuding positive vibes, Dangerflow is a true fusion
hip-hop group. And theirs is a sound that translates perfectly to the
stage. "At our live show we build upon our eclectic sound by
incorporating horns and other world instruments," explains Ocean. "We
always give fans a unique experience at every show."
And fans will be excited to catch them tonight, when they share the stage with not only City of God,
but Mims, who may or may not school you in reasons why he's hot. "We

are excited to share the stage with artists who are making a mark on the
industry," Ocean says. "This show is an indicator of what's to come. We
are just going to get bigger and better."
Dangerflow, City of God, and Mims play Transit Lounge (729 SW 1 Ave) tonight.
