Anyone remember this...group?
Late 90s i believe.
This mash of hip hop/electro/house/rock thing.

From what I understand, they are Canadians (i think) and it is/was a vary diverse lineup of artists.

Some might remember their hit "Drinking In L.A.", which was awesome, but they also have some other doep tracks.

They are still going. The third album came out late last year. They are more just plain old dance these days. I did see them live in 98 and they were pretty solid, considering how much was going on. They've not played any shows over here since, so i wouldn't hold my breath for a Coachella appearance (or one anywhere outside of Canada).
