Cultivating a sustainable world for future generations through Music, Art, Education, and Culture.
Renowned World Hip-Hop Ensemble (Audiopharmacy) and Cultural Community Arts Collective (Audiopharmacy Prescriptions) represents the power of Love, Music, and Collective Liberation. Spawned from its roots in Hip Hop, Audiopharmacy creates timeless music and art beyond any one genre. The ensemble is made up of multi-cultural creatives with roots indigenous to Turtle Island (North America), Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, South America, India and Europe. Their unique sound is eclectic + avant-garde, yet rooted in the voice of the people and Mama Earth. By intricately fusing turntablism, live instrumentation, global musical styles, poetic lyricism, movement, visual projection, and indigenous prayers, Audiopharmacy elevates the meaning, sound, and purpose of Hip Hop.
Whether it's the full world hip-hop ensemble, a DJ with live players and dancers, Indigenous prayer, educational workshops, or event production services; Audiopharmacy is a movement that combines the quality of 20 years experience, consciousness, community, and love.

HEAT COME feat. RAS K'DEE & RAMSAL
PRODUCE BY TEAO SENSE
"Heat Come" is a blend of Future Soul, RnB, House, & Trap with poetical, political lyricism feat a "smooth like butter” female vocalist. Sound comparisons? Say Kaytranada meets Bay Area Hip-Hop Culture (The Coup, Dead Prez, Michael Franti) with a Jazzy-Soul cherry on top (Esthero, Erykah Badu).
#HeatCome is now on all digital platforms
