In the wake of recent tragedies in Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, and Dallas, this song comes as a refreshing breath of clarity and positivity. Sam Trump, a Texas native, and Chicago transplant releases "Brother" featuring an assist by Add-2.
LA resident producer Calvin Valentine releases some new fresh produce. “Avocado Hi" is a hazy smoke filled trip through soul loops and stoney synth solos. Wearing gold wire framed glasses, reminiscent of the days of Master P, the young artist shifts seamlessly between keyboard, synthesizers, samplers, and even vocoders to create a 20 song session worthy of a buzz.
This week we let the nag champa burn and present "How It Feels" for the newest Chapter Picks series. The playlist is a slow ride through early R&B classics to newer artists like SiR, Anderson .Paak, and KYLE. Sit back and enjoy...
In these days of 24-hour media consumption, most often we just listen to our favorite music as we go about our day. We develop a go-to collection of albums and playlists that have become the soundtracks to our lives and, in some ways, background noise. Maze Koroma’s latest release may very well become part of the soundtrack to your life, but never background noise.
To hear it from Michael Stewart, also known as Fountaine—the magnanimous Portland emcee, producer, and star of web series X-Ray, his newest project Wisteria (released earlier today) is a step in a different direction. In fact, Fountaine's experience isn't altogether dissimilar from that of the specimen of which the album is named.
Fountaine has been a hermit in his laboratory working on projects with fellow NBG artist such as Mat Randol, Jon Belz and Snugsworth for the last year. Though he was in the midst of many dope projects behind the NW music scene, his Sophomore Album, Wisteria, is his best to date!
This week check out some chill tunes from the likes of ILL.SUGI, Mndsgn, Teebs, Dyrect, Archibald Slim and more! With multiple tea references in the song titles you can already tell this week is a juxtaposition of our last edition of Chapter Picks!
