One simply cannot walk past PRO8L3M indifferently.
The Warsaw-based duo consisting of Oskar and Steez made its debut in 2013 with the notorious EP “C30-C39”, which for some fans was a long-awaited breath of fresh air, and for others - simply an incomprehensible and hard to pin down phenomenon. Despite the controversy surrounding it, the EP still managed to make its mark across the 2013 charts.
Oskar’s uncompromising lyricism and Steez’s production skills have finally found an appropriate outlet on the “Art Brut” mixtape - sold out on its release date within less than an hour. “Oskar and Steez83 have made a record that reminds me of the famous Pulp Fiction scene where Vincent Vega gives Mia Wallace an adrenaline shot right into her heart.” – said the Onet.pl reviewer.
In 2014 the group was announced “Artist of the Year” at the national Nocne Marki award show held by Aktivist magazine. Later that year, Warsaw duo starred in Jan Holoubek’s mockumentary film “Postcards from the Republic of the Absurd” for which they’ve also written a song “Krzyk” (“Scream”) inspired by the self-immolation of Ryszard Siwiec in 1968.
Throughout 2015 they have toured intensively, taking the stage at some of the most important events of summer such as OFF Festival in Katowice or Hip Hop Kemp in Hradec Kralove. At the end of 2015 they have also released the first Polish hip-hop video recorded entirely in Virtual Reality technology.
First preorder of 4000 limited copies of their self-titled official debut album “PRO8L3M”, was sold out in less than 24 hrs. Singles “2040” and “Molly” have gained almost 6 million accumulative views on YouTube, with “Molly” topping the iTunes hip-hop singles chart in Poland on the day of its release.
