It all started at Martin's Records on Pico Blvd., 1996…

When LA-based People Under The Stairs, Double K (Michael Turner) and Thes One (Christopher Portugal) met, they had no idea they would become one of the most successful, completely independent hip-hop duos in the history of Hip-Hop.

Since their initial release in 1998, People Under The Stairs, or “The P” as they are referred to by their fans, have performed over a thousand sold out shows, festivals and world tours spanning 6 continents and 40 countries. With a pioneering DIY ethic, they have self produced 9 full-length LPs & countless singles and side projects. The musical sensibility punctuating their unique style of hip-hop has earned them the title “The Steely Dan of Rap Music” as well as consistent critical acclaim and numerous appearances on the Billboard Charts.

Their extraordinary career includes an appearance on The Simpson’s 20th Anniversary Special, a John Peele Session at Abbey Road, and groundbreaking performances at festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and Bonaroo, the last of which SPIN magazine noted as “Simply the best performance of Friday… Period”. As part of their 10 year Anniversary World Tour in 2009, People Under The Stairs travelled to new continents with sold out shows in China, Brazil and Africa and main stage plays at Outside Lands Festival, Governors Ball NYC and many others. In 2013 the P completed sold out tours with Mac Miller and Girl Talk before returning to the studio to work on their 9th album, 12 Step Program, released in May of 2014 to widespread fan and critical acclaim.

Now, 17 years since the inception of the group and on the eve of their tenth project, the duo turned legend reflect on the path less traveled and distill their unique blend of funk — a style recognized by fans and critics alike as a genre unto itself — into a series of 6 song EP's that punctuate their decades long journey to finally arrive at The Gettin' Off Stage.
