New Haven CT’s Ceschi (pronounced chess-key) Ramos makes his own version of progressive hip hop spliced with elements of folk & indie rock. Although he has almost “mathy” technical rap abilities he’s first and foremost a singer-songwriter at heart. Although one Ceschi song may consist of punk influenced machine gun fast raps, the next may be a quiet folk ballad played on acoustic guitar.
Since the release of 2010’s Dj Scientist produced conceptual psych-rock inspired hip hop record “The One Man Band Broke Up” Ceschi spent the last few years collaborating with an innumerable amount of today’s most talented MC’s, producers and artists of multiple genres including Sage Francis, Astronautalis & Radical Face. He’s toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia & Australia with independent hip-hop heroes such as Busdriver & Sole and even created his own successful record label – Fake Four, Inc.- that many of these artists now call home.
