Local hip hop act Magna Carda decided to stop by Studio 1A and delivered their usual brilliance while showcasing material off their new album, CirQlation. Lead lyricist, Megz Kelli delivers a flawless flow, combined with excellent production from members Dougie Do on keyboard/beats, Eric “The Greek” Nikolaides on guitar, Derek Van Wagner on bass, and Mike “Brotha Mike” Gonzales on drums. The soul, R&B influences combined with ear banging beats, Magna Carda brings up similarities of hip hop acts Aaliyah and Lauryn Hill including BADBADNOTGOOD‘s work with Ghostface Killah. With all this talent it’s easy to see how Magna Carda is one of the premier hip hop acts to see in Austin.
Magna Carda will be playing at The Belmont this Friday, February 5th, so make sure to get tickets while they’re still available! You can also stream their music here on KUTX.
