LA duo Faust & Shortee, aka Urban Assault, have proved more than a few things after years of highly accomplished DJ and production work. Like A-Trak, the two artists have expanded from their turntablist roots and have made a name for themselves in the dance world. To top it off, they’re also a husband and wife super team! Yep, Shortee’s actually, well, a shortee, and has been called “Queen of the Scratch World” by DJ Times. Check here for a cool video of Shortee performing, and a free download of her new electro track Girls Get Loud.
Faust & Shortee’s sound hits the right kicks on all three counts: electro (Rock Da House), dubstep, drum’n’bass, and my favorite–a lil’ bit of all that mixed together–which is exactly what they deliver with Street Cred and In The Groove. Urban Assault’s burgeoning label Heavy Artillery is home to the likes of other LessThan3 favorites from the states like Havoc N’ Deed.
