Profile of the performer Homicide (4): (A Bio taken from a Subciety Records' Press Release) Homicide is a Defunct hip-hop outfit from Bandung, Indonesia. Homicide is not only pioneering the real hiphop sounds in Bandung and maybe in Indonesia, they're also marked as one of the most significant groups Bandung ever produced. They combined street battle verses with political consciousness and punk rock ethics, backed with musics that deep rooted in the tradition of New York's jeep beats and avantguard's fearless noises. With influences ranging from Rakim to Marvin Gaye, Public Enemy to This Heat to The Last Poet to Crass and Neurosis, they're also known for their dedication in local activism and democratic grass root movement, no wonder if they're thightly connected to the local punk/HC scene and local resistance network as well. They didnt only save Indonesian hiphop scene from the bling-bling storm but also calling out an insurection during Suharto's regime. Being hated by zealouts from a number of organized religions they lived their words to the fullest.
