NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Vocalist JJ Watts (Jamie Joong Watts) pairs with rapper and songwriter Vs. (Matthew Richer-Miller) to bring us a new experimental music group called DEFIED. Their yet undefinable genre is inspired by producers like clams casino and james blake. Though DEFIED beats are often hip hop derived they also dip into the bass music electronic scene with producers like prophet.
DEFIED's songs are filled with lyrical wordplay and catchy melodies. Vs. raps with fluency and attention to the art form, while JJ brings her rich melodic tones and unexpected flow.
