band history:

Abstract Random started with Jamilah and Sunsun, in the backyard of Heartbeat 960, Sun made a bunch of experimental beats and Jamilah was a Dub Poet at the time- the first track was Security. Sunsun makes all the beats for the group. We started painting our faces and wearing costumes from jump. Face-painting became a ritual for us. Most of our tracks starts with the beat and words usually come second. We continued on, dropped a ep, toured Montreal and joined 88 Days Of Fortune. Ayo Leilani joined the band officially in 2011, after being featured in a bunch of tracks off our first album Dis Rupt Dis Reality.

what was the craziest show you’ve ever played ?

88 Days Of Fortune - Haiti Fundraiser - at the Ossington(Toronto) The crowd was so hype and singing along. The energy exchange was so big. Here is a link footage for that night.
