Shawn “Origix” Featherston and Tim “D.C.” Patterson met in Jr.High School, making mix tapes of their favorite music, to grow up hosting their own Radio program at 89.3 WHFR.FM at Henry Ford Community College. In 2002, when commercial radio was changing drastically, The Zone Radio was born on the far end of the FM Dial, and became more of a community project than a simple radio show. Origix & D.C felt it was their mission to expose what Real Hip Hop still is. Guest’s on The Zone range from Talib Kweli, Cypress Hill, Yukmouth, Tech N9ne, Black Milk, Kid Cudi, Bizzy Bone, Slug of Atmosphere and Twizitid. For Three hours every Monday night listeners are able to hear a new pay list of independent music, news, live performances and information about Hip Hop artists.
With popular demand and expansion of the Internet, Origix & D.C. have established www.2raw4fm.com, where they host uncut podcast mixes of The Zone Radio, gaining listeners world wide and serving as the home of their many projects.
Aside from being on air, The Zone has put on some legendary events around Michigan, and continues to be involved in the Detroit community. Origix writes the The Zone Column weekly at www.motorcityblog.net, as well as many website networks, trying to get the voices of the underground heard.
Origix & D.C have released an album of new material and are back to offer their perceptive on the rap game and life. “The Resume” an album that showcases the way they lay down rhymes and produce music. The Resume is a lyrical background check that provides proof these two veterans of Detroit hip hop still have what it takes to be relevant today.

Progress Report makes hip hop fun again, avoiding topics of drugs and violence, and instead focuses on the positive energy of music.
"Scoring points for originality, quality production, insightful lyrics, catchy hooks and their ability to play well with others, D.Allie (United States of Mind) and Eddie Logix (Midcoast Most) have teamed up to take their conscious art form to new heights. The result, though far from over, is Progress Report - a new project that bravely blends elements of soul, funk, rock and hip-hop." Emily Copeland, Real Detroit
sAMPLE tHE mARTIAN
Sample the Martian samples ideas of the future and dedicates music to the issues of the present. Performing songs in tribute to Open Source Programmers and Non-Malicious Hackers, amongst his topics, eMpyre plays all the instruments, sings and raps.
"Sample The Martian drops tracks that push the conventional expectations of hip-hop with old-school beats, psychedelic guitars, analog synths, and abstract lyrics that flow like water from the subconscious of one ungrounded dude." -Fuze Magazine
COLD MEN YOUNG
Like our former mayor, Cold Man Young is not afraid to hit you with politics. This hip hop/spoken word emcee collective consisting of Kopelli, Mic Write, Blak Smith, and Young Phenom bring an energetic and entertaining stage show complimented by spoken word performances, a live dj, live instrumentation and a large amount of crowd participation!
Describing himself as being "From the gutters of Cincinnati", Lazy D has been amazing audiences with his charming lyrics and visual appeal...he often dresses like a pirate.
"Lazy Ass Destroyer is a raw hip-hop/rock energy, while some of the lyrics are comical, this band takes its delivery seriously. It is a loud Beastie Boys meets Crunk meets Rock sound."- City Beat
Up and coming rap crew looking to put the city of Romulus on the map!
