Hip-Hop, Videos | MYSTERIOUS DUO CRASH LAND ON STMPD RCRDS

Posted by on May 1, 2017



A new hip-hop duo by the name of Crash Land have just debuted an interesting new space themed video and single with Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS. Not much is known about the mysterious duo, but the production quality and level of visuals make it seem as if these were established artists already. The video follows an astronaut crash landing on an alien planet with a catchy electronic beat to go along with equally catchy bars. Stream & Download here.

Albums, Hip-Hop, Rap | Atlanta Native, Kelechi, Drops Debut Album “Before The Quarter”

Posted by on May 27, 2016

Sometimes you hear an artist and are 7-seconds into the first song, you’re on to the next. Sometimes you hear an artist for the first time and are instantly drawn in. Whether it be the beat, their flow, the lyrics or the message, sometimes you just get that feeling you found something special. A few years back I stumbled across STNDRD, a hip-hop duo out of Hotlanta. Kelechi & Phay, two very talented artists were the talent behind the label. They were clearly motivated (as I quickly confirmed after seeing and hearing “We Want It All“). They were cultured and proud of their diverse backgrounds. They were confident, fun, and full of energy. Most importantly, they could RAP.

Fast forward 2 1/2 years, both artists are still representing STNDRD, but pursuing parallel solo careers. Kelechi was the recipient of $50k after being recognized as the winner of Green Label Sound’s “Open Call” contest. Identified as one of the next talents on the brink of explosion, Kelechief invested that nickel lump right back into his debut album, Before The Quarter. Making valuable industry connections and cosigns along the way, Kelechi has been earning his key and building bridges along the way. “Before the Quarter” is Kelechi’s breakout. 10 tracks, from raw to delicate, Chief flexes appropriately, but never lacks a message. Enjoy the album stream and cop your own copy on iTunes if those first 7-seconds hit you like they hit me.

Hip-Hop, Rap | ClarkAirlines – GoodTimingYeah

Posted by on July 31, 2015

Starting his rap career at the ripe age of 15, the now-23 year old ClarkAirlines has had plenty of time to come in to his own. And it shows. The unique sound crafted by the Chicago native is something fresh and enjoyable to listen to in today’s soundscape.

The expressive vocal tone paired with a witty, yet hard hitting writing ability make “GoodTimingYeah” a standout, and also showcase a snippet of what to expect from ClarkAirlines’ forthcoming project Trill Air.

Covering what’s left of your favorite rap tunes of the 2000 era, Outkast’s “Roses” receives the remix treatment by PLS&TY, and he’s not going tropical house a la Matoma, he’s raising the bar, on his grown man shit, going future with it, with smooth tones of jazz to get us into the tune, and I’m feeling it. Palm Beach look out, cool is back! This is a must listen and a must download!

Hip-Hop, Rap | Marc Goone – Mike Matheny

After an extended hiatus, Marc Goone has returned with bigger and badder plans for his take over. First single, “Mike Matheny”, is a song about bad decisions. Marc’s tongue-in-cheek type of writing style makes for a hilarious, weird, and unique song.

It’s been nearly a year since Marc has released any music, but it’s clear that he’s spent the time off honing his voice and prepping for this forthcoming album.

Enjoy, “Mike Matheny”, and check back in soon for more from Marc Goone.
