What happens when you bring together a space hop juggernaut with a spacey electro-soul outfit? The Hue collective, hailing from Space City, is the aftermath of combining the critically acclaimed groups H.I.S.D. (Hueston Independent Spit District) with their cosmic kinsmen and rising sensation Radio Galaxy. Their mission is to explore the creation of music with no boundaries.
Conceived in 2013, this futurist soul hybrid consists of songstress/femcee Spacebunny Jefferson, emcees Scottie Spitten, Equality, and Savvi, along with producers King Midas and DJ Cozmos.
Coming off of stellar projects, H.I.S.D.’s The Weakend and Radio Galaxy’s We Come in Peace, the aptly titled collaborative sequal, Aurora marks a new beginning in the ongoing mission to end the weak and space up the world through sound and color. What’s your hue?
H.I.S.D. (Hueston Independent Spit District) is helping to orchestrate a Hip-Hop reformation. Conceived in 2005, H.I.S.D. (a four-man collective) is sharing its Houston roots with a global audience. This Southern manifestation of sound celebrates: Hip-Hop culture; classic Soul music; poetry, fashion, production; and visual arts.
Having already released two full length albums, The District and The Weakend, and two EP’s, Summer Sessions and The Hue A.D. the group has earned critical acclaim from fellow Hip-Hop innovators. The Roots’, ?uestlove, A Tribe Called Quest’s, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Little Brother’s/Foreign Exchange’s Phonte, all recognize the unadulterated talent of H.I.S.D. Few artists are capable of offering a fresh perspective while reinforcing the nostalgic sounds of Hip-Hop’s Golden Era.

The eccentric three-person crew consists of newcomer Spacebunny Jefferson on vocals and songwriting duties with the overwhelming majority of the music deftly handled by production duo King Coz, consisting of H.I.S.D. producer King Midas and DJ Cozmos (a veteran of the Houston underground scene who has worked with the likes of Frank N Dank, Little Brother, K-otix, and drummer Chris Daddy Dave).
Radio Galaxy released their debut project on November 15, 2011. A project two years in the making, We Come In Peace puts the at-this-point-typical medley of hip hop, rhythm & blues and soul through Radio Galaxy’s quirky filter, stopping musical heavyweights such as Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and 9th Wonder in their tracks.
The trio immediately followed up in October 2012 with Daaarkness Everybody…, initially a free EP available for download on Bandcamp and subsequently released on iTunes. Here’s what Mass Appeal had to say:
“While the web buzzes about the “alternative” R&B of Frank Ocean and the Weeknd, and singers like Usher and Chris Brown have gone the electro pop route on the radio, there are other interesting strains of R&B emerging. Radio Galaxy’s latest EP Daaarkness Everybody is one of the better mutations of traditional R&B. Electronic without pandering to the pop EDM crown and soulful without pandering to neo-soul holdovers. The trio of King Midas, Spacebunny Jefferson and DJ Cozmos channel emotion and humor with a dash of schlock on Daaarkness . . . with references to everything from horror films to Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man.”
The talented oddball crew is currently in the lab working on new music for their next round of projects.
