Long Beach, CA hip-hop duo COAXIAL consists of BEEGS ALCHEMY (vocals, programming) and DAVID K (aka DAT-1) (programming, scratching). Both are transplants from the Northern Virginia/D.C. area who joined forces in Long Beach in 2003-04. In the middle of 2004, BEEGS ALCHEMY appeared on the FREE MORAL AGENTS’ track “Instinctively Intact”, and gradually his moniker began infiltrating both hip-hop and indie-rock circles. Christening themselves COAXIAL, the duo of BEEGS and DAVID K have been fine-tuning their skills at their Long Beach studio, recruiting local pals like Ikey (FMA) and his MARS VOLTA-bandmate, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, to contribute to their debut, a 5-track EP (“The Phantom Syndrome, GSL 2005). A futuristic hybrid of new and old-school techniques and styles, one track on the EP was even inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions. The band played SXSW ‘06, performing as a trio at the GSL/Skyscraper Magazine show. Summer 2006 sees the COAXIAL self-titled debut album emerge and not one but 2 tours planned for the west and eastern U.S., respectively. Employing live instrumentation, scratching, and the raw-yet-vulnerable spoken-word musings of Beegs Alchemy, COAXIAL are certain to appeal to fans of SAUL WILLIAMS, DJ SHADOW, EL-P, and EMINEM.
