Dream Warriors

The Dream Warriors are King Lou and Capital Q (aka The Quiet Storm), a pair of Toronto, Canada-based alternative rappers.

They formed in 1988 and released the jazz rap LP And Now, the Legacy Begins in 1991, which was critically acclaimed and sold well in Canada and the United Kingdom.

The Dream Warriors are King Lou and Capital Q (aka The Quiet Storm), a pair of Toronto, Canada-based alternative rappers.

They formed in 1988 and released the jazz rap LP And Now, the Legacy Begins in 1991, which was critically acclaimed and sold well in Canada and the United Kingdom.

The 1994 follow-up, Subliminal Simulation, received mixed reviews, and has since been forgotten by some and named a cult favourite by others; it featured guest vocals by Ishmael Butler of Digable Planets (on the track “Tricycles and Kittens”), and Guru and DJ Premier contributed to two different versions of the song called “I’ve Lost My Ignorance (and Don’t Know Where To Find It”).

Their most recent album, 1997’s The Master Plan, was poorly received and did not sell well, but they made an appearance in 1999 for The Herbaliser on the track “Road of Many Signs.” « hide
