Progressive soul, hip-hop and electronic music

AKG K 240 Semi-Open Studio Headphones

Great for DJs!

"The new K 240 Studio delivers even wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity than its well-known and widely-used predecessor. The secret to the semi-open K 240 Studio's sound quality is the new XXL transducers in acoustically tuned vented enclosures with circumaural (around the ear) pads. The circumaural pads envelope your ears nicely and reward you with smooth, solid bass and well-balanced, articulate mids and highs."

Sonnymoon - Houstatlantavegas (Drake cover)

Sonnymoon – Houstatlantavegas (Drake cover)

Sonnymoon are a quirky duo – part indie-kid, part electro-hop. They released a free album not so long ago, Golden Age which is a mixed bag (according to me) – it’s definitely interesting and different, I just can’t figure out if I like it or not. But, I will say that their cover of Drake’s...
The Shelltoes - I Was Told There Would Be Refreshments

The Shelltoes – I Was Told There Would Be Refreshments

No tea and biscuits?! Definitely a bummer. But don’t be fooled by the flippant title of this collection. The emotional output of this EP runs far deeper than such superficial disappoints. In fact The Shelltoes might be doing themselves a disservice by saying that their music blends jazz, hip-hop (this part is true) and “that...

Idle Warship – Party Robot Mixtape

This collabo between Res, Talib Kweli and Graph Nobel honestly left me a little underwhelmed, but I’ll be happy if it brings Res back into the limelight and releasing music again. Download Idle Warship – Party Robot Mixtape
Jack Splash - King of the Beats Mixtape

Jack Splash – King of the Beats Mixtape

Jack Splash returns with another free album download. This one is significantly better than the previous freebie, Heir To The Throne,  and demonstrates his production chops. I’m curious as to how his official album will sound. He seems to have ditched the funk-soul persona in favor of a more ‘gully’ (remember that word?!) hip-hop persona....

Jazzy - Off My Square

Jazzy – Off My Square

Jazzy is a local LA R&B singer and songwriter who deserves mainstream attention. Her debut release Oh Jazzy, released back in 2007 is one of the better indie soul/R&B releases you’re likely to come across.

I’ve been sittin’ on this mix for a while but it deserves to be brought to the light no matter my tardiness ;) This podcast comes courtesy of a collabo between two excellent music blogs – JusLikeMusic and Apple Juice Break.
