Uglybraine is composed of unknown ingredients. some of the greatest talent that NYC has to offer has taken a seat in this ensemble over the past few years. With Doron Lev as the drummer/lyricist and band leader, Uglybraine has evolved to become a revolving door for jazz, soul and funk musicians looking to sharpen their swords on some of the most forward thinking hip-hop the east coast has to offer. With respectful roots, doron navigates the realm of rap music with a tactful presence to keep the party moving. come see for yourself and get ugly tonight.

About "Ugly Is the New Lovely"


About the Band


This stellar collaboration between producer Mass Mega and Doron Lev has been supercharged for the most discerning hip-hop heads. with driving anthems like "I-95" and "718 to the 305", there are definite bangers built for booming trunks. Club jams like "Loft Party" and "Que Feo" show the duo's breadth of tempo and signature. For those that need a serious old school fix, songs like "Fuzzy Kangol" and "Old Ugz Back" come through with some serious punch for authorized head-boppers and real culture hounds. The entire album speaks to the audience as if hip-hop never got side-tracked, back-packed, wacked or straight-jacked. It is, in short, lightning in a 40 oz. bottle. -- "Anonymous Fan" #thankyou
