Proximity, the Hip Hop conglomerate from Boulder Colorado, is a group driven from their own life experiences and strong passion for music. Consisting of two emcee’s and a DJ, Proximity manages everything including lyrics, production, artwork, and all aspects of promotion. In 2003 “Provoke” (Eli Cordova) and “Grafik” (Shane Steele) pulled their talents together to make “Proximity Minds”, an 18 track self titled freshman album that sold over 500 copies locally in it’s 2005 release. Opening for national acts such as Jurassic 5, Swollen Members, and Nas. Proximity added J Steele; a talented DJ with growing skills joined the group and provided the cuts to match the emcee ability. The group now had a DJ as the third member and backbone of Proximity, allowing them to move forward with the release of their second album, “When Push Comes to Shove” two years later. The release of the second album already exceeded each group members wildest dreams and the love from the fans was never appreciated more. Proximity’s journey has been a long and tedious one, filled with long nights in the studio and countless hours of writing and practice. It’s taken a long time to get where they are at presently and their are no plans of turning back anytime soon. They are independently working on a third album, “Lead by Example”, which has a main focus of setting a good example for the audibly malnourished generation of Hip Hop listeners. “We have to eat to live, its what you feed the kids”… Look for Proximity’s new releases and upcoming shows on the website www.ProximityLeague.com.
