Natural Ensemble, or N.e (always spelt with a lower case e) is a unique hip-hop duo created by the imaginations of two young, talented artists who hail from Okotoks, Alberta, Canada. Early 90‘s hip-hop influences the positive, upbeat lyrics (provided by Josh “Geeze” Giesbrecht) and laid back beats (courtesy of Brendon “B-Ren” Caron). Alone, they could impress any rap enthusiast but together, they’re creativity blends to unveil a side of hip-hop you’ve never heard before.
