Bramzwig - Young Gun

Mood Indigo - Midnight Children

Mood Indigo, is a Boston electronic artist, whose work tends to remind me of good food in Los Angeles.  I'll elaborate.

LA's food scene is famous for combining odd flavors and influences into a small and delectable dish, bursting with flavor, each aspect complimenting the others perfectly.  For example, Kogi BBQ food truck is famous for their Korean bbq short rib, yet the appearance and basis for their food is Mexican.  The partnering of asian spiced meat and spicy orange sauce, with shredded cheese and a small tortilla result in a stunning meal that leaves my stomach craving more.

This is Mood Indigo's approach to music.  The spiced korean short rib, the bulk of the meal, in MI's case is heavy, thumping bass and stuttering hi hats, providing a hip hop oriented beat structure.  The shredded cheese and tortilla would be his soft crooning, gentle xylophone, and foreign percussion. The additional percussion often battles the hip hop layout, yet in a friendly and comfortable way.

Danny Brown - WitIt (video)

Danny Brown knows how to party.

What's the first thing you do when you get a beat from Toronto's premier track-smith Noah "40" Shebib? Well if you're Harlem's prince, A$AP Rocky you send that shit back to Canada and get a hot 16 from 40's partner in rhyme Drake. Once that's in the books you make sure you cover all demographics by catching a verse and then a hook from reigning west-coast champion Kendrick Lamar and the toast of the south 2 Chainz. Now you've got yourself a recipe for the most epic event North America has seen since the proposal for the Amero was first made.

RZA - The Man With The Iron Fists Soundtrack (stream)

I very, very seldom use the beat down phrase "highly anticipated" so as not to water its meaning down. If every LP, EP or single was deemed highly anticipated we'd all be watching the internet sporting musical blog boners all day. No, I only get highly anticipated blog boners once, maybe twice a quarter and right now I've got a musical rager going. So I'm saying it now, stream the highly anticipated RZA Produced The Man With The Iron Fists and satiate your musical lust below.

No words necessary for this one... it speaks for itself.

EL-P ft. Jaleel Bunton - Stay Down (video)

EL-P delivers his classic industrial-machine-hop vibe complete with droning bass sounds, guitar riff feedback and menacing keys. Jaleel Bunton from T.V. On the Radio lends his hypnotizing vocals to the songs hook. It helps keep this blood thirsty audience, full of teen pregnancies, enamored but they soon rial into a frenzied state. EL-P's flow attempts to keep the masses at bay but it doesn't appear to be enough, they soon loose control and have their way with what he loves most, Mr. Killums the Squirrel Face.

Ill Poetic - Synesthesia: The Yellow Movement EP

"Synesthesia... Synesthesia?! Maybe it has something to do with memory loss, BUT WHY?" Those were the exact thoughts that brewed in my mind the first time I heard the title of Ill Po's newest EP. I remember feeling a little ignorant because I had heard the term "Synesthesia" before in conversation and acted like I had been a Synesthesia expert since 7th grade. Not knowing the meaning at all, I did what any resourceful internet nerd with a slight drinking problem would do... went straight to the dictionary... ok... google, but what ever.


  [sin-uhs-thee-zhuh, -zhee-uh, -zee-uh]

a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color.

WOW... Seems a little super human if you ask me. When I say "super human" I mean that in the most Marvel Comic way possible. "Word on the street" is that Ill Po actually has Synesthesia... Ok not really "word on the street"... I was actually at one of his shows about a year ago and overheard him telling John Stamos, of all people, about his Synesthesia epidemic. I wasn't really paying close attention or giving it much thought at the time. I was more focused on figuring out why Jesse, from Full House, showed up to an Ill Poetic show in Phoenix Arizona. Anyways, I guess the point of the story is that Ill Poetic has some how inherited super powers. This would kind of make him a super hero of sorts right? Ok... maybe I've had one too many vodka sprites and that's ((OK)) with me. Super Hero or not... I could definitely see him on the Hip Hop Fantastic Four after listening to this project. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is into projects with 100% substance. S/O to our friends over at on the co-sign and S/O to Ill Poetic on a super dope introduction to the Synesthesia movement.

Sol - Old Him (prod. by The Zillas)

"Here is "Old Him", a song produced by my Zillas (Elan Wright & Nima Skeemz) 8,000 miles away back home in Seattle, written while on the night train to Bangalore, India, and recorded in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, while severely sick from food poisoning (caused two months into my trip, after being convinced by my Indian friends to try KFC for the first time in my life)."  - Sol

iSH - End Of The Story (THR3MIX)
