Shadow Huntaz are a 5 piece abstract hip-hop group notable for their releases on the highly regarded Skam Records label and for their use of online file sharing to create their work.
They were originally formed by a trio of MC's, Breaff, Dream and Nongenetic, all of whom are based in different cities in the US, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles respectively. For their first full-length release on Skam Records, Corrupt Data , they were joined by brothers Don and Roel Funcken from The Netherlands who also operate under the name Funckarma.
The brothers had originally approached them to do some remixes but this evolved into a full collaboration, undertaken through file sharing over the internet. Sounds created by the Funcken Brothers would be passed amongst the group members to be reworked or added to. The same approach was taken for the follow-up, also on Skam Records, Valley Of The Shadows and a handful of EP's including Vampire EP. Both albums are also available in instrumental form, highlighting the contributions of the Funcken Brothers, who are prolific without Shadow Huntaz, continuing to release material as Funckarma as well as adopting aliases such as Quench, Automotive and Cenik.
