BY PHILLYGRRL Looking for some authentic Philly beats to spice up your Friday night? Look no further than Germantown hip-hoppers WrittenHouse, who play tonight at the Draught Horse. WrittenHouse, composed of producers Chris Conway, Kush Shalimar, hypeman Somerville Sleeves and emcee Charlie K, released their mixtape Sunshine Philadelphia Vol. 2 this past summer to critical acclaim. The members of WrittenHouse, Philly natives, have been active on the Philadelphia music scene as individuals since 2000, but started collaborating in 2007. They are known for their dynamic stage performances, strong lyrics and ah yes, tight beats. Tonight’s set list includes a crowd favorite, Mahogany Blu. Better check ’em out now before they blow up on the national scene. Only last week, they opened for The Roots at their Vermont show. They’re the best group to hit this city since The Fresh Prince. Oh, who am I kidding. They would crush The Fresh Prince. (No disrespect, Will, but we all know acting’s your thing.) So if you’re feeling nostalgic for some real Philadelphia-flavored hip-hop, give WrittenHouse a listen.
