Today, for the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections, they are releasing a new FREE EP called Democrasexxy (de·moc·ra-sex·y) available right here!
To accompany the EP they have also released a video for the new single Hot Staxx, to help you get in the democratic spirit!


de·moc·ra-sex·y (dəˈmäkrəseksē) Noun - a system of government by which the whole population is represented through elected officials. Most likely by force.
