1773 (pronounced Seventeen Seventy-Three) is Just J, Wisdm One and DJ Moral One. They've been going since 2004, and have shared stages with Lyrics Born, Blackalicious, Dead Prez, Pigeon John, L.A. Symphony, Ohmega Watts, Othello, Braille, and many others.
As collectors of sight and sound, they’ve brought together a string of instrumental beats on their first full length release for 2010 titled Sound Soulstice. Produced entirely by Australian producer ARKiV, Sound Soulstice will be 1773’s third project on River City Music Entertainment. Songstress Natalie Oliveri, and MCs Othello (of Lightheaded) & Ezekiel38 (Vertual Vertigo) all lend their palettes to the album’s sonic portrait.
“The earthly solstice deals with day and night, so we wanted to capture the universality of that concept both lyrically and emotionally” states Wisdm O.N.E.
