"318 Underground: BLOOD PUNCH - Energy Ray / Put Em' Up"

If you've never heard of Blood Punch before this post, and you're truly a fan of underground hip-hop, keep reading ...

#318 artists Blood Punch hail from Highland area of Shreveport. BP members are @NateTreme and @raiTHRILLA, but they occasionally include guest artists.

Their music sounds like nothing you've heard in the 318, using elements of alternative rock (punk/grunge) and Southern hip hop -- classifying themselves at punk hip-hop artists.

They compound it all with outside-the-box visuals reminiscent of the early 90s, which are not only clever, but very smart, creative marketing tools.

Blood Punch dropped their first mixtape, Highland Brigade, dropped this past June.

Highland-based hip-hop artist Nate Treme, who makes beats for and raps in the duo Blood Punch (FB link) in addition to his work as a solo artist, recently posted a video on Instagram that had hip-hop fans in awe. Treme has repurposed a thrift store suitcase into what he calls his “Cosmic Suitcase,” a self-contained mobile beat-making and performance unit complete with an Akai MPC midi controller, a KAOSS pad live effects controller, a Korg Monotron and more.

Treme will perform live beats using the Cosmic Suitcase for the first time in public at Bear’s on Fairfield on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. Doors open at 9 p.m. and Treme expects to perform shortly thereafter. Other MC’s with local roots, including Mikey Tyner and Eff!m, are also scheduled to perform. Admission is free. The show is 21 and up.

“I don’t like using my laptop live,” Treme told me when I asked about the origins of the Cosmic Suitcase. “This makes me look more like a mad scientist, which is what I was going for.”

The exterior of the Cosmic Suitcase is covered in images of space that Treme cut out of a coffee table book and the interior lining has been replaced with pages from an old Marvel comic. The bottom of the suitcase has a 1/4-inch plug for an audio cable, making it easy for Treme to pop open the suitcase and make beats at a moment’s notice.

A collection of Treme’s sounds, which are infused with the kind of creativity found in the work of Bay Area hip-hop producers like Ras G and Madlib, was recently released on the Jeunesse Cosmique label. Lots of Treme’s work can be streamed on his Soundcloud page. -

"Blood Punch packs unique sound, performance into shows"

Highland rap duo Blood Punch is not one to be constrained by the stage.

"We're so in the crowd ... we'd rather be with the people than on stage," said Raiven Williams, one half of the duo that also includes hip hop artist Nathan Treme.

Their versatile lyrics and unique party sound has drawn a following in recent years, and prior to their most recent performance last month at Bear's, the duo sat down to talk about the evolution of that sound and the off-stage performance experience... - Shreveport Times


Highland Brigade LP - 2013
Punch Is Thicker Than Blood EP - 2013



We are a rap duo from Shreveport, Louisiana who both adopted the southern way of life once moved to Shreveport.
Ironically enough, Nathan Treme and Raiven Williams randomly met through myspace years ago back when the Myspace Music Scene was decent, then they became good buds who shared the same interest. Living in the neighborhood of Highland for the duo is what matters at the end of the day. The 2 blocks the two mention in their tracks consists of some of the most creative, and innovative mama-jammas this side of the Mississippi. 

Blood Punch starting performing in house shows at Dalzell, Art Shows , and any porch the two could spit freestyles. They are all about having fun and making music they love. What sets Blood Punch apart from other bands would be the subject matter of their songs. Their lyrics touch all types of topics with references to Dungeons and Dragons to Buffet restaurants they visit frequently. Their music would fall in the genre of Hip Hop/ Rap but it will also fall into Punk. Their live performs are wild and they often result in crazy mosh pits. A person will find it very hard to listen to Blood Punch without getting super pumped and ready to party. After listening to Blood Punch you will know why they rep Caddo Parish soo HARD!!!
