Live in Belfast, Ireland
Equipped with a Paraguayan harp, Los Angeles creator(diy) Low Leaf performs the smooth love song “smthng abt you” off her latest release, Alchemizing Dawn EP during one of her recent European tour stops in Belfast, Ireland.
NegroSaki & Dave Universal - Saki x Universal
Tampa, FL producer extraordinare NegroSaki collaborates with his fellow producer and brother Dave Universal over the course of 8 ethereal neck-snapping instrumentals on their new album Saki x Universal. Mixing NegroSaki’s soulful sample chopping sensibilities with Dave Universal’s very electronica/Southern-influenced sound results in an aesthetic that can captivate multiple audiences. The combination just works.
Storee - Hidden Power
You may remember the behind the scenes from this video being posted a few weeks ago. Baltimore representative Storee dropped off this visual for “Hidden Power” last week, and it was very well shot. I actually liked the song more than the video (which is rare). Storee has a very strong delivery and unique lyrical ability that is vastly different than other members of his generation of Baltimore MCs. Definitely give this video a play.
Identity Krisis - Krismerica EP
Birthed from a brotherhood bond, Identity Krisis (IDK) is truly a band of brothers located in Clinton, MD. Originally named the “Pretty Difficult Boys” formed in 2007 after wanting to emulate the success in music that they found on the hit game Rockband. With the original line up being that of Nova Cain playing guitar and doing vocals, Solo Dolo on lead guitar, Quah Manigan on bass and Remy on drums. The new all black rockband was created and ready to rock. Shortly after forming, the band added another neighborhood friend Cortez Mars who would soon take on the responsibility of songwriting and vocals. His hip hop roots added another dynamic to the groups persona and musical styling. Almost immediately after adding Cortez Mars, the band changed the name to Identity Krisis. The name was said to describe the band in the most perfect way possible. The songs they were creating fit no genre perfectly as if they did not what type of music they wanted to create.
IDK is without a doubt a breathe of fresh air in music, with influences like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gym Class Heroes, Coheed and Cambria, NERD, and Weezer. Stay tuned, IDK will be featured in upcoming B2P events.

Buffalo Black - Buffalo Black LP
Texas emcee Buffalo Black combines just the right amount of energy, awareness, technical skill and sonic cohesion for his new self titled LP. The beats, made by various producers such as the Midnight Kids N.O.M.A.D, SamuraiMugen and more, all have a dark tinge that increases the intensity of Black’s delivery; creating a brand of intelligent fight music. The aesthetic is even applied to subjects such as sex on the very abrasive “Just Breathe”. Things get toned down towards the end to create a more insular experience that balances out the ferocity. A very well-rounded release.
Alias: The Architect - Steady Rock
Drawing influences from the worlds of 8-bit, Reggae, Soul and more, Southern California producer and multi-instrumentalist Alias: The Architect composes beats with every ingredient made completely from scratch on his free debut LP, Steady Rock. You’d swear these tracks all used samples, but everything (except the obvious recordings) down to the 8-bit and the singing is organic. Stay tuned for much more new music from Alias.
SLik d - “Compassion”
Released this past Earth Day, Las Vegas/Los Angeles artist SLik d provides quite the anthem for environmental awareness and positivity with his new track “Compassion” which is laced with a dreamy beat by F.A.M.E. Sing along and throw your biodegradable/organic lighters up.
