Only on Rdio: Preview People Under The Stairs’ Ambitious New Album, Highlighter


Los Angeles hip-hop duo People Under The Stairs have been making music for over a decade, thrilling audiences at sold-out shows across the globe. Rappers Thes One and Double K’s smart lyrics and quick delivery, matched with laid-back, jazz-tinged beats was last on display in 2009's Carried Away.

The next step in their illustrious career is forthcoming double-album Highlighter, their most ambitious work to date. Recorded in several Los Angeles studios, Highlighter showcases a wide variety of musical styles, using instrumentation like full-string sections and vintage vibraphones to invoke a new style of hip hop that plays on older musical tropes.

Want a sneak preview? Starting today, six tracks from the album are available exclusively on Rdio, where you can share it and add it to playlists a week prior to its official release. Listen to Highlighter now.
