Zeroh - Bred: A Dedication

This first of many more projects to drop this year features collaborations with mndsgn, Jonwayne, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jeremiah Jae, Ohbliv and more with Zeroh anchoring everything with his calm-yet-zany method of wordplay and scattered spurts of disjointed singing.
Skeme - “BANG!”
Los Angeles emcee Skeme relentlessly dismantles the beat on his new Futuristiks-produced single “BANG!” off his upcoming mixtape titled Ingleworld. Perfect high energy anthem for doing yoga with the nina.
Kenny Segal - Kenstrumentalz Vol. 1
Kenny Segal, known for his critically acclaimed work with Los Angeles collective Project Blowed releases a new instrumental album. Jazzy and mellow sample flips are abundant. Highly recommended for the next time you need to chill out.
Jowin - “Please Save Mii” (prod. Plue Starfox)
First single off Jowin’s upcoming project titled Jowin Actually Has Friends is “Please Save Mii”, a very dance-ready track that involves Jowin reuniting with producer Plue Starfox. The two have previously collaborated on an entire project a couple of years back titled Luff, Jowin which showcased a distinct chemistry different from Plue’s other collaborative ventures. On this new track, Jowin talks about finding a safe haven in someone or a something while delivering a very throwback r&b hook over some seriously tropical production by Plue.
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.

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.
