[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Earl Sweatshirt Releases Surprise Album + Catch Him Live In Chicago

earl-sweatshirt

  I’m officially starting to feel old. The youngest member of the eclectic Odd Future troupe is now of legal drinking age (like that’s stopped him in the past), and that can only mean that Earl Sweatshirt‘s live shows will be even more outrageous than in the past. Bursting onto the hip-hop scene circa 2011, […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA/HIP HOP] Grimes- Realiti // Nosaj Thing- Cold Stares

ignacio2

 Cold stares. Laptop LED lights make light of the moment. You are dead. They illuminate our four eyes off heart monitors, IV bags, bars.bars.bars.so.many.fucking.bars making up this bed, windows that look out to lower Sukumvhit as it shines back. Back into eyes of cold stares. We’ll leer over the edges of death Not always the […]

[HIP-HOP] OSKA FARO – SHOES

oska faro

  As this is my first entry of the year in the Hip-Hop arena, I’m feeling a bit vulnerable. My Top Hip-Hop of 2014 list was my first true voyage into the depths and subtleties of this expansive, ever-evolving genre. It was a challenge, but one that I feel I took a great deal of […]

[END OF YEAR] No Nonsense: The Best Hip-Hop Of 2014

[END OF YEAR] No Nonsense: The Best Hip-Hop Of 2014

  I’ve always been a fan of hip-hop and rap. The production and originality grabbed me from the get-go. The fact that it was a simple two-part recipe, a beat and a lyricist, always amazed me, because the result was always the same, true art born from thoughts on the mind put to rhythm. I […]

[ELECTRONIC/HIP-HOP] FEKI – SAFE RETURN

feki

  Slow motion is something that has always fascinated me. For one thing, it is mostly restricted to being used within the realm of the commercial visual medium, whether that be on TV, in a film, or in a music video. There is a special vibe and notion that it always brings to the creative […]

[HIP-HOP] TONE OLIVER – SOMETHING GOOD FEAT. JETPACK JONES (Prod. by AXELRAD)

something good-01

  There’s always a been moments in history, no matter where you’re from, where people have had to fight to stand up for what they believed in. It’s no different these days. With the recent Climate Change March that happened in NYC, as well as other major cities around the globe, we’re truly living at […]

[PLAYLIST] – NORTH COAST MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014 PREVIEW

logo_2014_sls

  Crafted by James Kabat and Kavi S. Still nursing hangovers from Lolla, Chicago is about descend in droves upon West Loop’s Union Park. Well, maybe descend is too strong a verb. They’ll slink their way on the L, shushing teenagers for the temerity to raise their voice an octave above a whisper. That is […]

[QUICK MIX - CHILL/BASS] Ryan Hemsworth - "COOL DJ MIX"

  Ryan Hemsworth takes over this Quick Mix with his blend of chilled-out hip hop and bass vibes in his “Cool DJ Mix”. “First mix of 2014 and it feels good to be back. This is what my brain feels like and it’s weird. Listen to this on headphones when you’re zooted on a greyhound […]

[R&B/Hip Hop] Miguel ft. Wale – “Bennie And The Jets” (Elton John Cover)

[R&B/Hip Hop] Miguel ft. Wale - "Bennie And The Jets" (Elton John Cover)

  Head into just about any bar with a karaoke machine for the night and chances are you’ll hear a pretty shitty cover of Elton John‘s classic single “Benny And The Jets” being sung (read shouted into the mic) by some drunk, half bald man with a mixed drink in his hand. It’s inevitable, like […]
