THE STAKES
THE STAKES
The Stakes have brought soul to Arizona's hip-hop scene. Their eclectic sound takes root in the precedent of live hip-hop set by The Roots, Kendrick Lamar, and Robert Glasper while building on the social consciousness of backpack rap. With a blend all their own of influences spanning jazz, funk and R&B, The Stakes provide an infectious groove sure to keep your head nodding and feet moving as it resonates through your body and soul. The Stakes have shared the stage with The Internet and Biz Markie and performed at the Viva Phoenix and Apache Lake music festivals.

"The Stakes could write songs about calculus and people would dance to it. Live and on record, the band has a powerful chemistry, creating a potent combination of rap, jazz, funk, and pop touches that sounds totally modern while also harkening back to the golden age of Native Tongues-style hip-hop.

One of the reasons the band is able to expertly weave together so many disparate styles is because of their different backgrounds. While many of The Stakes knew each other before the band came together like Voltron, they couldn’t be more different as individuals. There’s a drummer with no formal training, two rappers, and band members with formal jazz training. Which means their differences are staggering in terms of technique, musical approach, and experience level. But that’s what makes them such a versatile and flexible musical outfit. They can move seamlessly through various genres and switch up their style because they aren’t all drinking from the same well.

After releasing a tight six-song album in 2015, The Stakes are set to release a new album on May 26 at the Rebel Lounge."
