Vic Spencer although quite skilled can be seen as one of the Windy City’s overlooked gems in a sea of glass. Making the assertion that he is indeed worthy of your valuable listening time, Spencer drops “The Investment”, laying his usual brand of stylish braggadocio over soulful instrumental by Black Spade. Press play and reap the returns.
Because GhostfaceKillah. Combined with the haunting/Tarantinoesque backdrop provided by BADBADNOTGOOD and the accompanying bars by Elzhi, you have the recipe for a winner in your headphones should you choose it (you should). Be on the lookout for the collaborative project Sour Soul, out this February. Can’t wait.
Beat smith Sev Seveerhas been a staple of the Chicago beat scene, making regular appearances at PushBeats and other related events over the past few years. Yesterday, he put out his first official release since 2008. Titled Constant Elevation: Odessas Star, it certainly has the potential at face value to take you to another realm if you let it. However, there is a gravity to this work that must be acknowledged. We’ll let Sev break it down for you after the jump…
#BADKIDSPARTYis on the horizon folks! We’ve been tracking the pre-production process over on Facebook, pop over and get a feel for what to expect at tomorrow’s event. The 119 crew has been putting in crazy hours staging the space, so it’s high time you throw together a last minute costume and cop a presale before they’re gone. Don’t forget the ticket price includes a 4.5 hour hosted bar. AND we’ve just added a few fun perks to keep you busy through out the night. There’s a huge ‘build your own duel’ photobooth complete with health meter, an immersive, spinning forest / mobile of prop weapons, and Yung Pharoah providing live glitch visuals on the massive 2-story video wall.
After the jump get your feet into the Halloween spirit with birthday boy / event opener Umbertron‘s Chicago Tek Ghetto House EP (on Loose Squares).
In case you missed it, MFn Melo laced us with the second single off MeloDramatics for #MFNMondayslast week. This one features John Walt and Anthony Pavel over a jazzy Pucho beat, perfect for the Monday night unwind. Press play and enjoy.
Denitia and Sene with the visuals for the track Runnin‘ from the upcoming EP “Side FX“. We’re definitely looking forward to that work if this is any indication of its quality. Catch them on tour in November and December.. I could make some bad joke about runnin’ to go see them but that would be in poor taste, wouldn’t it?
Really, do we need words for this? Stream the album, buy the album. If anything this is required listening to prepare for the upcoming Meow the Jewels, which may be more anticipated than the original… Why are you still reading? You should’ve pressed play by now.
