Chicago rapper Kahrion just let loose a new set of visuals for the smooth and smoked out single “95”. Shot and edited by Darryl Turnbow, the video shows a ‘day in the life’ of sorts where Kahrion rolls up and pays a visit to the studio. Look out for his upcoming project, Rambeworld, arriving sooner than later.
Milwaukee wild child Zed Kenzo does it all on her own with the new single “Go Psycho.” Focusing on self-empowerment, lone wolf global takeovers, and uplifting isolation, the track is something you need to bump when you need a pick-me-up. Something to blast before a job interview, before a blind date, before anything stressful that comes your way.
St. Louis vocalist/producer Sean Deaux linked with Chicago vocalist/producer Qari for “Persona”. With Deauxva behind the boards, the two trade hazy, atmospheric lines. It sounds like slow motion in a strip club.
Turn your head around for an instant and you might miss something special from producer Jetson. The New Zealand artist and Chill Children founder has released four heaters in the last few months.
His most recent is ‘Coolin’ which sounds exactly like summer. Which it is, on the other side of the globe. Prior to that drop, he released ‘pull up on u’ , which is unstoppable, pounding through the speakers, and comes complete with edited video work.
From flips to reworkings to ‘late night edits’ to original numbers, his portfolio is one to play during a midnight rainstorm. Something to impress your friends and appease your eardrums.
With four pieces of music that impress following his past Lemon Water EP, consider this a reminder to continue listening to Jetson. Who knew bass-heavy bangers could be this smooth?
A lovely new collaborative single between Miami producers INVT and vocalists Kesari and Chester Watson. It’s been on repeat since it dropped over the weekend. The artwork comes courtesy of Watson, who recently teased a lofi beat tape. Stay alert.
As Lord Apex prepares to release the ten song album, Smoke Sessions, Vol. 2, on January 25, he lets loose the music video for the lead single “SSV2”. It’s shot with a crisp fisheye lens guaranteed to bounce you into a new head space. Don’t sleep on this heat.
On the last day of last year, artist Nancy released the single “Spliff”. With production from GRiMM Doza, as well as assistance from Tombo, it’s a 90 second body high, an atmospheric head trip to play when you can’t sleep.
While we anticipate Mick Jenkins’ upcoming sophomore album, Pieces of a Man, scheduled to release this upcoming Friday, he let loose two singles. They’re linked together in the same music video while also being made available separately over on all streaming services. The kicker is that the track “Padded Locks” features the legendary Ghostface Killah. Don’t sleep.
LA-based MC Open Mike Eagle linked up with producer Nedarb (a familiar name around these parts) for the loose track ‘Relatable’. The track arrived alongside the announcement of Eagle’s new label, Autoreverse Records, so look out for much more from that new venture.
Lastly, be sure to check out Open Mike Eagle in November as he tours through the West Coast and down in Texas and Arizona. Dates can be found here.
Milwaukee producer Q the Sun has had a great year. He’s produced for Lorde Fredd33, Milo, and WebsterX. Now, stepping into solo territory, he enlists vocalist Kane for the loose track “Wide Awake”. Spin it back three times over and wait for Q to drop some more bumps in the form of Afterain Part 2. You can listen to the first one below.
