The No Ordinary Cats is a Progressive Funk Hip Hop group from Orlando Florida consisting of K Sos, K.D., J.O., and Rams. This is the story of how it all came together. In 2005, K.D. and J.O. met at a student housing basketball court near the University of Central Florida in Orlando. K.D., who was working with another group at the time, built a bond with J.O. Then J.O. began writing rhymes for the first time on what would become "I Do This for Fun Volume 1", a February 2006 release. Across town, K Sos was on a year and a half hiatus from writing music when he came across the mix tape through a mutual friend. He instantly took an interest in the duo. He immediately phoned his friend to get J.O.'s phone number and demanded that they record. They would set up a session for that Monday where K Sos met K.D. for the first time. Meanwhile K Sos discovered what would become the groups 4th and final member, Rams who were neighbors at a student housing complex. Rams, an Atlanta native came to Florida originally to pursue an education at Full Sail but ending up working at Disney World to gain instate tuition. One of K Sos's new roommates suggested that he take Rams to his next recording session and that he was very serious about music. Having never heard any of Rams work, K Sos said he would take Rams to the session. Their first session came on a Wednesday in the middle of April. After 6 months of recording together, an album was the only likely result if these sessions were to continue. The four began experiment with various genres of music to create a multidimensional listener experience. In March of 2007 things started to fall apart for the group. Disagreements about the direction and goals of the album, and various outside distractions left the N.O.C. Presents...DINOSAUR a near impossible task. In frustration, Rams moved back to Atlanta and began working with PaRock Productions on Rams Presents...Jukebox Bully (A collection now expected to be released in fall of 2009). Back in Orlando, K Sos knew it would take a miracle to get the group back together. So a miracle was conceived. From the end of July until the second week in September, he would lock himself in his room for as many as 14 hours a day working on new songs eventually titled K Sos Presents...the PRESPORT Mixtape. Eighteen songs were recorded. Thirteen would end up in the final cut including two late sessions with Rams, three tracks featuring J.O. and vocal work orchestrated by K.D. K Sos & K.D. mixed the record in less than five hours. The PRESPORT then caught the eye of the CEO of Skinny Buddha Productions (Dport). From there the excitement escalated and they decided to take this project to the next level. Within the next few months they had produced and distributed over 4000 copies of the PreSport nationwide; not to mention, digital downloads from SkinnyBuddha.com and other sites. The almost instant success of the mix tape had reenergized the group. Rams returned to Florida on two occasions to finish the album. K Sos and Dport proceeded to create Skinny Buddha Records LLC. K Sos & K.D. landed a spot on Orlando's 106.7 FM to promote the album on the Johnny & Jayde Morning Show. Several beats from PaRock Productions crept onto the album tracklist until it was eventually decided that the album would be mixed and mastered at their studio in Atlanta. The end result, N.O.C. Presents...DINOSAUR. N.O.C. also known as No Ordinary Cats, chose this name to symbolize their desire to stand apart from mainstream music that chooses to dumb down it's audience. Their mission is to revitalize the idea of intellectually stimulating music. N.O.C. music spans an eclectic range of sounds that strive to galvanize all types of listeners as they provided insightful glimpses into four unique human characters. N.O.C. and Skinny Buddha Records believe in the freedom to be unique and the idea of paving your own path to success. Their debut, DINOSAUR was officially released July 4th 2009. Rams returned to Florida in July to permanently reunite with the group. Following his return, they performed three shows including the UCF Opening Gameday Tailgate and one of Orlando's premier venues, The Social. Thanks to support from local radio they were able to make two radio appearences (SBK Live 104.1 Real Radio & Johnny & Jayde In the Morning XL 106.7 (2nd Appearance) to perform songs from DINOSAUR and talk about upcoming shows. Currently they are working on assembling a band to help perform their complex instrumentation at live shows. Visit SkinnyBuddha.com for updates on the groups progress.
