DJ DYL – Happy to Be Here

Florida based hip hop artist DJ DYL has a new single out titled “Happy to Be Here” (featuring Boogs Malone and Murc Jones.) It’s an uplifting song, and the best way I could describe it would be the hip hop equivalent of Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy.” Musically, “Happy to Be Here” is quite […]

Miztuh Chazs – Conceited – EP

With an upcoming official release date of November 24th, “Conceited” is a new EP from hip hop artist, Miztuh Chazs. My first impression of this album is that the production quality is very high. I can remember a time when indie hip hop artists recorded on 4-track cassette, but such is not the case really […]

Marquis Demps – Hot Shit

19 year old rapper Marquis Demps hails from Killeen, Texas. His new jam is Hot Shit (that’s actually the title,) and I have to admit, it is pretty good. Demps has a solid flow and assertive style. The backing is an intense theme that kind of vaguely reminds me of the theme from the film, […]

London based Finnish artist Timi Alexander has a new self-titled album available. His songs have an ambient, avant garde indie quality to them.

Teddy Hayes – Love Come Rainin Down

Artist Teddy Hayes’new track “Love Come Rainin Down,” (from the CD “The Professor of Love SongOlogy) is an excellent example of what a talented, seasoned vocalist can achieve musically if they keep it real and don’t ruin their sound with gimmicks and effects processing. Hayes combines soul, jazz and rap in a way they comes […]

Phillip Broussard – Just Wanna Believe

Veteran Seattle musician Phillip Broussard has released a new single titled “Just Wanna Believe.” Normally when we refer to someone as a “veteran musician” we just mean they have some experience under their belt and have been playing the circuit for a while. This is true in Broussard’s case, but he’s also an actual military […]

U-G – On Me feat Teeklef and Rasta Zillion

New track from hip hop artist “U-G,” which features Teeklef and Rasta Zillion. True to the names, this song does have some Caribbean flavor, mixed in with coherently layered vocal tracks and a laid back backing. This has the feel of beachgoing or boating music. It’s a little more melodic than just standard hip hop, […]

Purple Wall Street – Whateva

“Purple Wall Street” might be the coolest name for a hip hop duo I’ve heard in a while. Despite few releases and being fairly new to the scene (under that name anyway,) the artists definitely have the flow and skills of seasoned veterans. Clearly they have a lot of experience and know what they’re doing […]

The Singer and The Songwriter – Directions EP

The aptly titled “Directions” is a new EP from “The Singer and the Songwriter,” (a rather accurate band name for a singer/songwriter duo that spends a lot of time traveling and making music about their journeys.) As best as I can tell, their songs would be categorized as indie folk or a variant thereof. The […]

Ambervision – The Amber Age of Infomercials

If you grew up in the 80′s and 90′s chances are you sat through a zillion infomercials: featuring everything from Don Lapre’s “Tiny Classified Ads” to Corey Haim and Corey Feldman’s 900 number hotline. Looking back at these, I have a certain nostalgia for the aesthetic of all these old infomercials. It’s just one of […]

Bronx based, underground hip hop artist John J has released a new album, “Pain to Power.” Being more of a fan of old school hip hop than most contemporary styles, it was a pleasant surprise to discover that John J’s music has a very 90′s vibe, especially in his delivery…which is at faster moments is […]

New Orleans based artist 1stDegree’s has a new EP titled “DDay” out. He has one of those delivery styles that is laid back and unassuming, yet you can tell he means business. There are some memorably classic lines like “y’all stick to that JNCO.” What I like about these tracks is the backing music, which […]
