Detox Junky is a collaborative music project with contributions from a wide variety of musicians with an even wider variety of influences and musical backgrounds, including hip-hop, pop, rock, electronica, metal, classical, and more.
Detox Junky’s sound combines heavy multi-genre production with a raw vocal element and strong hip-hop and alternative undertones, fusing multiple styles together in a way that stays true to each unique element.
While the project itself is based in Seattle, Detox Junky features vocalists, producers, DJs, musicians and contributors of all kinds from around the world, resulting in a style of music that can only be described as “Hip-Hop Fusion.”
Sometimes the inspiration of an album outweighs its execution, but that is not the case here. This album is damn fun and totally infectious. The old school is large and in your face, while huge grooves and samples, mix with grinding rocker tunes and screaming guitar riffs.
But on top of the nostalgic, groove atmosphere, there is much more going on here. First and foremost, the album has vision, structure and ambition that hasn’t been seen in hip-hop for a while. It moves from an old school to inventive new stuff, folding into down-tempo and classic hiphop re-workings.

It’s a breathtaking musical span to attempt for any band, but Detox Junky pulls it off, proving a pretty tidy sense of melody and flow, amidst so much musical havoc. Where the mix of rock, hip hop and electronica blends to generate an awesome mix.
Detox Junky bring rap back from the hollows of a money hungry, flashy and empty substance limelight, to a tastier, grittier and funkier sound. Their tracks are progressive and innovative with creative samples and authentic old school backbone beats pumping the momentum.
Detox Junky’s latest tracks, which will ultimately lead to a brand new album, is an explosive combination of hip-hop and rock’s finest and has more energy than an atomic bomb. Standout tracks include, a cover of The D.O.C.’s 1989 hit song “Its Funky Enough,” the Black Sabbath influenced, “Iron Man” with its screaming guitar riffs. The string padded “Alive N Kickin,” “For Evil” and “Higher.” But just about every song is listenable and enjoyable, thanks to the caliber of both Detox Junky’s lyrical talents and the overall sound production.
A word of warning, on some songs Detox Junky’s lyrics certainly are not for the faint of heart. If you’re easily offended, take your steps into the depths of their creations with caution. These guys don’t mince words or sugar-coat anything, but its all done with skill, emotion and at times, even humor.
The Detox Junky project shows some real talent, a great production, solid rhymes and grooves, all with an original approach.
This isn’t your average party hiphop band, your average rap album, your average anything. It’s bold and fresh and it knows where it came from and more importantly, where its going.
Keep a look out for the upcoming album.
