(DC, Maryland, Virgina, USA)- It's such a vibrant thing- only dipped in a delight of 4 colors, making up collective The Five One. Known heavily in the DMV as the Alternative/Hip Hop band who collectively made headlines as a Color Coded Quartet (band members Red, Blue, Green, and Gold), they uniquely blend vibes of Pop, Rock, and Hip Hop with plans to release a remix song by various artists every week for the entire year.
It all started as a remix project birthed the second week of January 2009 and has garnered the attention of the Hip Hop and Indie blogosphere ever since- keeping the internet buzzing and constantly on their toes for more. With well mastered remixes and remakes of various notable artists such as Bob Marley, Lykke Li , N*E*R*D, Kenna, Gorillaz, Vampire Weekend, Kanye West, and many more, The Five One continues to keep the music flowing touching anything they get their hands on.
