Approach

Approach built his local fanbase and reputation as a live exciter with music funkier than that to-go box of pork lo mein you left in the backseat of your car. His 2006 CD, The Nu, mixed live by DJ Sku — with whom Approach has enjoyed a marriage made in hip-hop heaven the past few years — upheld the party-starting reputation of the rapper sometimes known as Al Japro. But it's his upcoming release, Welcome to Share, that has our jaws really dropping. Collaborating with producers Oh No and Salva, Approach has reinvented his sound via hard-edged, squelchy electro beats and high-calorie verse that would add 10 pounds to Kanye West's and Daft Punk's respective waistlines. Unfortunately for us, Approach has announced plans to relocate to San Francisco and rep KC there. Bay Area punks better recognize, or there'll be some kinda hell to pay.
