The state of Michigan makes a strong habit of producing some of the most influential musicians on the planet. Whatever it is that Michigoneans  are doing to inspire artists to experiment with new, weird sounds and ideas, it’s definitely working and Waldo and Sango drink from that same pool. The Grand Rapids duo habitually create new inspiring music under the Soulcolection label . Yesterday, to help promote their L.A. + S.F. shows, Waldo dropped a revised version of “Kobe’s Song”, check that and the original version out below.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Waldo – Kobe’s Room (Truth Be Told)

Posted by on October 22, 2013

Produced by Sango himself, this was bound to be a fresh new track. I’ve been keeping up with Waldo ever since I discovered him back before the new year – his popularity is steadily increasing, which I’m happy to see, but I’m even happier about the collab EP that Waldo & Sango just recently dropped, NSDE/OUTSDE. The project is dense with a flow and unrelenting heat that compliments Waldo’s delivery and establishes him as a force to be reckoned with. From the commandeering of his midwest flow to the confidence of his staccato, “he presents the production with intense imagery and a spirit of adventurousness that perfects the latest trend of experimentalism on the rise in hip-hop as Michigan continues its quiet reign” (Okayplayer.com). NSDE/OUTSDE features appearances from JOOSE and The SEVENth while Marvel Alexander and Mr. Carmack provide the assist on production. ‘Kobe’s Room’ is featured 4th on the NSDE, but with both sides having equally all good tracks, this is definitely something that you guys will want to check out, ya know what I’m sayin? :p

Chill, Mix | Easy Like Sunday Morning

Posted by on October 13, 2013


Happy Sunday Funday, y’all. I’ve been increasingly overwhelmed lately with the amount of good music accumulating out there in the universe so I’ve found bundling them up in little care packages to be the best solution to curing all the quiet moments in your day to day routine. Today’s playlist is a low-key musical journey to keep you feeling light and carefree throughout the entirety of your day.

A little indie, a little house, some trill-electro hip-hop reworks and one Drake and one Mr. Carmack track, because what would a playlist be these days without that.

So open up your windows and let the fresh air and sun shine on in. Make yourself a hearty breakfast, stay in bed, read an old book, take a walk, say something nice to the people you care about, turn on some football, spend an extra 15 minutes playing with your dog, or don’t do anything at all. Except play this mix, on repeat.

I wanna be high, so high, I wanna be free to know
The things I do are right
I wanna be free
Just me, babe!
That’s why I’m easy
I’m easy like sunday morning…
