“Our style,” producer Nick “MidiEvil” Pawlenty says about the music he and rapper Matt “Crimson” Ihle make as Strictly Hammers, “is very underground, with lots of story telling and brutal honesty that can be sharp around the edges but also very uplifting and creative.” In nearly 10 years performing together, the duo has released seven of its own records — three are remixes of local bands’ songs — and opened for DJ Abilities, Mike Mictlan and Heiruspecs. They plan to record and release a new record later this year.
