MidCentury Modern is a hip-hop duo that is harkening back to a simpler time of rap music – “beats, rhyme, and life.”

The group comprises of Sintax the Terrific and Rheomatic, and they are gearing up to release their record, The Goodness, December 16 on Illect Recordings.

This rapper and producer tandem have a solid guest list for their debut: Dres (Black Sheep), Jarobi (A Tribe Called Quest), Miles Bonny, Boog Brown, Sivion, Manchild, Krum, Elias, Derek Webb.

“The Goodness isn’t a theme record or homage to another era. It’s just two musicians still practicing a timeless art…Hip hop’s self-designated Mad Men, Sintax the Terrific and Rheomatic, are joined, on the opening cut, by two of the Native Tongue’s finest, Dres of Black Sheep and Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest — “a couple old heads from outer space/like they come from a whole other time and place. Mad Men.”
