_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Stoic Bliss (Kazi & Ac1D) are the fathers of Hip-Hop in the urban Bengali music scene. Stoic Bliss ventured into the music industry in Bangladesh in hopes of introducing a new genre to their home country. After shopping for deals, Stoic Bliss signed with music veterans G-Series and released their debut Album "Light Years Ahead". The introduction of the new Genre paved its way to create a new platform of music. Bengali audience's world-wide tuned in to greet Bengali Hip-Hop at its purest form with open arms. Hit single "Abar Jigay" made the groups name and popularity spread across every nation. Light Years Ahead sold well over 250,000 copies within the first 10 months, making Stoic Bliss the next big thing to hit the markets of Bangladesh. Through their album, word of mouth and shows their demand increased, hip-hop became a fixed genre that squeezed its way through and found acceptance in the Bengali communities world-wide. What once was an experimental project is now a revolution. Stoic Bliss opened a new chapter and unlocked a passage that allowed other armature Hip-Hop admirers to take stand. Ac1D however, is still the only rapper that can fluently "flow" in Bengali and ingenuously switch back to English. Kazi is the main vocalist/singer in the group with unique vocal play and melodies. When it comes to collaborating to make good music Kazi & Ac1D makes the perfect team. Together, the Combination of singing and rapping demonstrates originality, flow and unique word play that are impossible to imitate. Although there are many Bengali hip-hop groups that released after Stoic Bliss, no one can reach the magnitude of the creator. As if Light Years Ahead wasn't enough to feed the ears of the hungry listeners, Stoic Bliss decided to release their second album Kolpona'r Baire from G-Series in 2007. Stoic Bliss promises that this new album will be ten times betters then the first, and fulfill the hunger of those who couldn't get enough of the first album. "The first album was just an experiment to see the reaction of the listeners, this second album is the real deal. It is the introduction of Bengali Hip-Hop at its purest form, Its not Bangla Rap if your rapping in English and have a Bengali chorus, its Bangla Rap when the entire song is in Bengali " – Ac1D. This current album will set the standard for Bengali hip-hop for generations to come" – Kazi. Although Stoic Bliss introduced Bangla Rap to Bangladesh, it will take a few generations before it is completely accepted by people through out the nation of BD. "Our goal is to introduce perspectives to the stereotypes and show them what we are capable of, Kolpona'r Baire has a little bit of everything. We hope to gain listeners from every type of genre." – Ac1D. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Rubayath (Ellicit)
