New York City-based hip-hop artist Bisc1 has just announced the dates for The Traveling Circuits Tour. The tour will be in support of his upcoming album, When Electric Night Falls on Embedded Music. Joining him on the road are fellow artists Domer, Metermaids, Human?, DJ Halo, and Grimace.
The tour will begin today in New York City and then snake across the country to California and back. One of the highlights of the tour is Bisc1’s spot in the highly anticipated Definitive Jux showcase at SXSW, where he will share the stage with El-P and Del The Funky Homosapien. Afterwards, Bisc1 will head to Atlanta, where he will take part in the A3C Hip-Hop Festival alongside Little Brother, Guilty Simpson, and many more A-list artists.
Along the way, Bisc1 will be keeping a video blog that will be updated daily on social networking site Imeem.com, which will give fans a chance to see what life is like on the road for an up and coming artist.

A native of Massachusetts by way of Connecticut, Bisc1 moved to NYC 10 years ago and quickly made a name for himself DJ’ing at clubs, distributing mixtapes, and in graffiti circles. Soon, Bisc1 picked up the mic and won several battle raps including the Whose Line Is It monthly at the Knitting Factory in NYC 4 consecutive months in a row. His debut release, The Basics EP (2006), gained the favorable attention of music critics and his subsequent release, The Stay Up Project mixtape (2007) was downloaded over 5000 times. Bisc’s penchant for capturing our chaotic reality with his narratives, images, and collaborations has earned him a reputation as one of the most honest and creative artists of today. Going beyond music, Bisc1 is also an accomplished graphic artist. He’s done cover art, designed promotional materials and spearheaded art direction for artists such as Aesop Rock, The Perceptionists, C-Rayz-Walz, Murs, El-P, and others. His art has been featured in several magazines and art house coffee table books and in galleries, such as Danny Simmon’s Rush Arts Gallery. When Electric Night Falls, for which Bisc did all the art direction, will be available March 11th on Embedded Music.
