The Chicago based trio Alert312 is made up by 3 musical brothers who have channeled their eclectic roots and faith to craft genuine sonic and visual art for any willing listener. Now in their 3rd season of creative endeavors, the music is mature and expresses the mash-up of culture that continues to influence their sound. Authentic live performance is their muse. Faith in Christ is core to their creative motivation. A percussive core drives their energy. Live analog recording blankets their sound. All three members – Esteban Shedd, Aaron Lopez & Loren La Luz touch multiple instruments to mash their sonic offerings together – a mofongo of heart, soul, and lyrical substance. These are the ingredients of their sound – street funk, progressive Hip Hop yet unashamedly Golden era and ethnic. Experience the live set, grab the sounds, peep their heart. Great craft takes time to mature, the best offerings are now here from the trio.

Alert312 dropped their third full-length record Joy King Supreme on September 7, 2018.
The trio explores the source of joy that they find exclusively in the person of Jesus Christ and the infinite gifts he holds together for our joy. From injustice, gentrification, fear, identity, and hope in eternal life, ALERT312 emcee Esteban Shedd writes, laments and celebrates with blunt meditation.
Daniel Steele, Jackie Hill Perry, Soul Surplus, Liz Vice, Macklyn Mosley and Joseph Solomon all have significant contributions and display the groups’ conviction of the most meaningful art being created in community.
From the beginning, Humble Beast has been committed to radical generosity, which means that all the label's music is freely given.
