Los Angeles, CA – Jurassic 5 turntablist DJ Nu-Mark, former Pharcyde MC Slimkid3 and burgeoning rapper Austin Antoine have formed a new trio called TRDMRK. To mark the occasion, the newly birthed trifecta of talent has dropped their first video for “Hands Up.”
The black-and-white affair was directed by Pablo Aguilar and features some of Los Angeles’ most iconic locations. The decision to link with Slimkid3 was a no-brainer for Uncle Nu. The two have been collaborating for years.
“Tre and I initially planned to record only one record for Delicious Vinyl but our musical chemistry combined with countless inbox messages ignited the TRDMRK EP!” Nu-Mark tells TR1LL.
