Hip-hop crew mic.edu formed in 1997 after meeting at KCSB, the Santa Barbara community radio station where several of the group's members hosted shows.
Over the next two years, rappers A-Twice, Eriksolo, and Rüd the Instructor; producer Quarterbar; and turntablist DJ Lion issued an EP and several singles of jazzy and introspective hip-hop, primarily through their own Rocketship Records label. The group received heavy airplay on underground rap radio and performed live with likeminded acts such as Souls of Mischief and Aloe Blacc.
Tragically, group member A-Twice (Lafura Jackson) was killed by cancer in 2000 at the age of 24. As a result, mic.edu disbanded, with Eriksolo and Quarterbar going on to start the group Meanest Man Contest.
Two decades later, Lo-Vibes Recordings is releasing "Microphone Education," an album which collects all of mic.edu's key tracks in remastered form.

1997年にアメリカ西海岸で結成されたグループ"mic.edu“。天才MC、A-Twiceに加え、Eriksolo、Rüdthe Instructorといった実力派MC、鬼才トラックメイカーQuarterbarらを擁し、彼ら自身のレーベルRocketship Recordsを通して、ジャジーで内省的ないくつかのEPをリリース。 多数のコンピレーションにも参加。アンダーグラウンドラジオでも激しいエアプレイを受けて、高い評価を得た。
グループメンバーA-Twice(Lafura Jackson)は2000年に24歳でガンで逝去。その結果、mic.eduは解散し、EriksoloとQuarterbarはグループMeanest Man Contestなどで活動。(現在もそれぞれ現役で活動中)
そして2019年、ラフラとも交流のあったKK率いるLo-Vibes Recordingsが、mic.eduのすべてのキートラックをリマスターしたアルバム「Microphone Education」をリリース。A-Twiceの知名度先行で見逃されてきた、グループ本来の凄まじく高いクオリティの全容がついに明らかになる。
