Born and raised Texans Dorian, JayHawk, and Mel make up the hip hop band The Outfit, TX. Consisting of two producers and three emcees, TOTX’s story begins in the city of Dallas, where all three members are from. Enrollment at the University of Houston in 2006 brought middle-school partners Dorian and Mel to JayHawk and three years later, The Outfit, TX was formed.

Since its commencement, TOTX has been hard at work developing their patented brand of “Cooly Fooly Space Age Funk.” The trio has released several notably successful local projects, including the 2010 OG Ron C-hosted Chopped Not Slopped version of their self-titled debut project and a buzz-worthy 2011 mixtape with regional powerhouse DJ Mr. Rogers.

The members of TOTX are fully cognizant of both their individual sounds and their collective sound, blending unabashed southern credo with smooth synth bass, moogs, 808s, and synthesizers.Their first official studio album, Starships and Rockets: Cooly Fooly Space Age Funk The Album, exists as a perfect exhibition of that. In 2012, Starships was voted one of Houston’s “Best Underground Rap Tapes” by the Houston Press, receiving coverage from the likes of 2Dopeboyz, Fox Austin, and Complex Magazine. MTV Hive called them “The Best Rap Group You’re Not Talking About (Yet)”. Their most recent project, the double-disc album Cognac/Four Corner Room, exists as two varying solo projects conjoined at the hip to represent the juxtaposed unity that makes up TOTX. Entirely produced, written, and engineered by Mel and Dorian, Cognac/Four Corner Room takes listeners deeper into the individual spirits of TOTX’s two founding members. Complex ranked it as one of the top ten Houston Rap Mixtapes of 2013.

TOTX has performed with the likes of J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, The Clipse, and Kendrick Lamar. They headlined their first sold out show at Warehouse Live in Houston, TX in March 2013, then hit the road, performing at several music festivals including A3C’s “Best in Texas” Showcase, and Spune’s Index Fest in Dallas, TX.

The future holds much more for these three southern gentlemen. This October, they will open for legendary rapper Scarface, at the A3C hip-hop festival in Atlanta and will embark on their first tour alongside Run The Jewels.

The Outfit, TX’s brand of artistry is one small step for Texas, one giant leap for southern kind.
