About Tha Zone
El Sobrante, CA
Starting out in 2006 the group Tha Zone emerged from Oakland California with a dream of one day becoming hip-hop stars. The trip has been long and hard but they have never gien up on the dream. From the beginning there has always been something different about these three young men which set them apart from other groups Teaming up with producer Dash they devised a new sound unheard of in the Bay Area. Coming along around the same time of the "Hyphy" movement it was hard to get a break since they're not a "hyphy" group but represent a new era of music. Slowly but surely they began to make a name for themselves starting out in a photo shoot with Mack Photograhy in Sacramento. They used the fliers they recieved as a promotion strategy. They used the rising engine Mysace as a way to broadcast their unique sound. Shortly after becoming Myspace members, their popularity expanded int local places in the Bay Area with songs such as "Sweet Love" which blended the sweet soulful beat and an Anita Baker sample along with "I Got A Bottle," an original song and a club banger. They comprised a demo which contained five songs shortly after that and THA ZONE began working at studio 17 Hertz, located in Hayward California. This fueled the drive to began working on their first solo project. After about six months of recording the group was finished. In the beginning of 2007 they made their biggest song know to date "Fresh Ta Def," produced by local rising star Swerve. They recorded this popular song at the famous Laughing Tiger studio in San Rafael. This record brought on an onslaught of adoring fans from around the world, which catapulted them into the limelight and brought along with them shows at various venues like (Concord Talent Competition),(Christmas with Nicky in Headlsburg),(Fly Flashy Tour),(Super Hyphy Zero),(Oakland Talent Show), and(Filthy Dripped 1 Year Anniversary.) Since the release of their smash hit single "Fresh Ta Def" various artist and DJ's have expressed a desire to collaborate with Tha Zone (DJ Slowpoke),(DJ E-Mac),(Diligentz),(Racks Up),(Ric Lew),(L.G.),(Nio The Gift),(Yung Luv & J-Money),(Yogy & Reapa), and (Threat Boiz). Tha Zone is a group unlike anything in the Bay Area and their feel good music and humble pesonasmake them the prime group to work with and be around. This summer they are set to make apperances in L.A. and Las Vegas in hopes to expand their fan base. They are a group to be reckoned with and itws only a matter of time before this group blows up.
