Look out, Def Jam; Sub Pop’s comin’ for ya! Okay, that’s probably not the case, but the historically rock-focused label has followed up its highly successful first hip-hop release (Shabazz Palaces’ Black Up) by announcing that Seattle duo THEESatisfaction has joined the Sub Pop family. The signing isn’t much of a stretch: The duo, made up of members Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White, shares a hometown with the label and also contributed to a few tracks on Black Up. In the way of original output, THEESatisfaction has released five EPs to date and is planning a full-length album for early 2012.
To celebrate the announcement, THEESatisfaction has offered up “Do You Have The Time,” a track that started making the rounds at the duo’s sets for Black Up release parties, for free download. Nab it for yourself below, for the low price of an email address.
