Starting off their careers as young protégés to the legendary hip-hop producer Kutmasta Kurt, Rushden & Diamonds first got their start writing rhymes and making beats while digging in the crates of 1980's R&B and classical music. The duo’s early productions would eventually make their way onto Rushden & Diamonds' debut release “2010”, a critically acclaimed double album hip-hopera which featured the likes of MC Paul Barman, Jacky Jasper, Dylan Ross (voicing under multiple aliases) and JUNO Award winners Elaine "Lil'Bit" Shepherd, Moka Only and more. Since the release of their debut album, Rushden & Diamonds have toured throughout Asia, Europe and North America, rocked festivals for hundred's of thousands of people and have shared stages with the likes of such iconic hip-hop acts as Black Sheep, Dilated Peoples, Dr. Octagon, KRS-One, Onyx, Slum Village plus many others. In 2012 Rushden & Diamonds created 2 original songs for SEGA's cult classic video game "Anarchy Reigns". The songs Fast Lane and They Came From Underground produced by Naoto Tanaka (composer of the Mega Man X series and Bayonetta 2 / sound director of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance) quickly became the soundtrack’s break out singles. Now, while channeling inspirations from their favorite retro music, action movies and video games, Rushden & Diamonds' bring you their highly anticipated follow up to “2010” appropriately titled "2020" (Redux).
