Mob Bounce is a Hip Hop duo that formed in the later half of 2010 with the release of their, “Mixed Blood Mixtape.” Before the mixtape release, Travis Adrian Hebert and Craig Frank Edes had been writing & recording music since 2004. Craig is Gitxsan and Travis is Cree/Metis.

The two Aboriginal artists have exceptional experience in playing guitar and drums, and have blended their musicianship with elements of Electronic Dance Music (E.D.M.), and Hip Hop production; they incorporate aspects of a Cultural identity with an Artistic identity by experimenting with free toning(Chanting), and a Cultural soundscape influenced by sounds of Nature.

Since the release of “Mix Blood Mixtape”, Mob Bounce has focused heavily on creating social and environmental awareness through the arts. They have done their share of anti-pipeline events and a series of shows at Vancouver Indigenous Media Arts Festival that is organized through W2 Media Arts Society in Vancouver, British Columbia. Mob Bounce spent the summer of 2014 performing at various Music Festivals and events including Aboriginal Music Week in Winnipeg, MB.

Combined, they have shared the stage with; A Tribe Called Red, DJ Itchy Ron of Sweatshop Union, Git Hayetsk: “People of the Copper Shield”, We Are The City, The Born Ruffians, Filastine, Cris Derkson, Swollen Members, Leonard Sumner, Tall Paul, and other established artists.

Mob Bounce has hosted a series of Youth Dances and Youth Conferences in the Bulkley Valley and Interior region. Mob Bounce has also recorded music with Youth in both Smithers and Houston, British Columbia where they grew up. Since then they have used their musical talents to connect with youth.

Mob Bounce is now offering a workshop titled, “Hip Hop and the Sacred Space”, and the workshop is designed to provide tools for the youth in exploring their cultural identity and creating their own Sacred Space.

Lyric writing and beat making will help the youth connect to the traditional teachings of storytelling and the hand drum while weaving these practices into contemporary mediums. The vision is to allow the youth to reclaim culture so they can pick it up, own it, move forward with it, so it can evolve and fit where they exist today.

This workshop will be offered to Bella Coola youth age 14 and up on Friday, July 15 at Acwsalcta School from noon – 3pm. To register contact Melinda Mack at 250 320 4714 or melindanelson@hotmail.com

Mob Bounce’s lyrical content is based on culture, spirituality, sustainable living, healing, Mother Earth and awakening a warrior spirit, since it is a warrior who sacrifices themselves for the better of others.

Mob Bounce is gearing up to release their, “Mob Medicine EP” that is 100% produced by Mob Bounce. Mob Bounce has been a grassroots labour of love that has succeeded by operating independently along with other passionate promoters, producers, friends, and family. Mob Bounce will continue to create music that promotes empowerment, healing, love, truth, and all other things that come from the spirit.

“My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their Spirit back.”
