Biography

 

After being MC and composer in the legendary band ViRCANDiMMER with Diggy-MO’ from SOUL’d OUT, ViRGO a.k.a. HAMMER started solo and imposed a strong and energetic style which made him quite successful.

His first album, Monomyth -Volume 1-, was released last June 15 and is available in Europe on iTunes. The “GOLDEN HAMMER PRODUCTION Release Party”, organized for the launch of the album, brought together about 1.000 people.

ViRGO a.k.a. HAMMER distinguishes himself in a new genre, that of hip hop opera. This explosive mix offers rich live performances, between Asian sounds and texts reinterpreting the classical tale of Momotaro, a hero from Japanese folklore.

The release of his second album, Monomyth -Volume 2-, is planned for next July.
