Channeling all the nostalgia of the Golden Age of Hip-Hop with genre-bending live instrumentation and blending it with all the energy of a punk show, ADDverse Effects aims to bring artistry and integrity back to the craft. Formed in Norman, OK the 5-piece (6 when DJ Timmy B joins the mix) was initially conceived by drummer/singer/composer Boyd ‘B-Side’ Littel and lead MC Joshua ‘Fiji’ Rehanek, in late summer 2012, after the 2 landed a short-notice opening gig with a couple other local musicians. With only 3 days to practice the band threw together a 45 minute set that went over like gangbusters. Littel and Rehanek instantly knew they had something special and decided to see the project through.
In June 2014 the band relocated to Portland, OR in a move to bring their unique style to a larger market. Since moving, ADDverse has added local Portlandians Vincent Jaime on Guitar and Spencer Finnan on Keys and co-founded the Hive Mind Collective with Portland Hip-Hop/Jazz acts Korgy & Bass, Two Planets, Tribe Mars, The Pariahs. The band also released its debut EP ‘Just A Taste’, on March 26th, 2015, which spent time in the Top 50 on the iTunes Hot Indie Hip-Hop chart and has garnered critical acclaim around the country. The lead single ‘Just A Taste’ was selected as one of the Top 50 songs of 2014, in Oklahoma, by The Spy/NPR. Their debut full length ‘A Good Problem To Have’ was independently released on October 21st, 2016 and has been well received placing 2 tracks (Candy & In My Mind) in the Top 50 of 2016 on The Spy/NPR. The group was also recently voted Runner Up for Best Hip-Hop Artist and Best Band in the Willamette Weeks 2017 Readers Poll. With a sound rooted deep in the foundations of Hip-Hop, that is able to branch out from Reggae, to acid jazz, to punk, to new wave, ADDverse Effects is creating its’ own lane while bringing the party and positivity with every sound they create.
