When it comes to Ohio Music "The Groove" is something that stays constant throughout the times of early music coming out Ohio, or the Double O as it is also often referred to as. This Groove, when it comes to the new duo out of Cincinnati that goes by the name Starship is something that comes natural for the two, known as Jimi Skywlkr and Chris Awesome. The duo who are actually twin brothers were raised around the sounds Of The Ohio Players, The Isley Brothers, Roger Troutman and Zapp and other Ohio Greats, growing up in the eastside neighborhood of Madisonville. The groove is something the two know all too well. And is something that when working on they're debut project in early 2014 really helped the two come with they're new vibe in which they appropriately named the "Ohio Groove" or OG music. Starship's aim is to restore the feeling of Soul music but introduce it with a new age Hip Hop feel, while providing a conscious message.

         The album in which is titled "Voyage 711" is home to 18 songs of smooth, laid back, groovy tunes in which tell the story of Jimi Skywlkr and Chris Awesome's life growing up in the inner City Of Cincinnati. The two whose love for the 1970's life of Cadillac's and Good Vibes give a clear insight into the minds of the two, and put you inside of the car with two as they take you on a trip through of the galaxies of the Groove. Starship released two videos off the project for the songs "Razor Ramon" and "Wingaridum Leviosa" which features Buggs Tha Rocka (artist signed with Talib Kweli) . The video for Razor Ramon was cosigned by the man himself Scott Hall also known as the man the legendary WWE wrestler "Razor Ramon." Starship provides a message of Peace while bringing positive vibes to the world.
