GRiZ Spearheads New Age Funk Revolution

This summer you won’t hear suburban hood-rats bumping Wild Cherry, James Brown, or Rick James in daddy’s Jeep, but don’t fret, funk didn’t die with bell-bottoms and black lights. It’s alive and well. The prevalence and popularity of EDM (electronic dance music) has initiated a resurgence of funk. New technologies and innovative artists have exponentially […]

Artist Spotlight: Chali 2na

Interview by Cameron Gibson, words by Yunus Church. Rap is not exclusively a young man’s game anymore (unfortunately, it’s still too much of a man’s game, but that’s a different matter altogether). Many of my favorite MC’s are closer in age to my father than they are to me, and I have no problem with […]

Artist Spotlight: Sacral Crown

Sacral Crown, a producer/DJ hailing from Ann Arbor, MI, has been busy this summer. He just returned from Electric Forest, where he was hustling the good old fashioned way by playing at campsites and spreading his music from ear-to-ear. On top of that, he released a charitable EP titled In Memorium. All proceeds from the album will be donated to Haven, […]

Mixin’ the Future: Smoko Ono, “Future Beats Radio Mix”

Let’s get the DeLorean out, because where we’re going… we don’t need roads… The talented Chi-Town producer Smoko Ono just blessed us with an excellent mix to jam out to. He was recently given a huge nod of approval by Kanye West himself when the Yeezy featuring Vic Mensa single, “U Mad,” dropped last month. It was produced […]

Flip the Sample: “Walk On By” / “Warning”

Still Flippin’ Samples. Flip yeah. Today we have a great series of songs that utilize a slow moving bassline that created three classics. The songs are overall pretty different — they all fall under separate genres — but the similarities, the sounds sampled, are very evident. These tracks are excellent, really fun jams to listen to. Enjoy!   […]

Jam on, Mon: Thelonious Martin, “Purp Interlude” ft. Joey Purp

Jam O’ the Day (Or Night): Vic Mensa, “Feel That”

You’ve undoubtedly heard about the newest Roc Nation signee. If you haven’t, here’s a welcoming intro for Vic Mensa into the R.O.C. family. Vic has been letting his shit bubble, and now it’s about to BLOW. Soon after getting the nod from Kanye by collaborating with him on “U Mad,” Jay-Z dropped the news that […]

‘Kindred’ Review: Passion Pit’s Need for Speed

Is Michael Angelakos in a hurry? That’s the question to ask when listening to his indietronica band Passion Pit’s new release, Kindred. The album clocks in at just under 40 minutes with ten succinct tracks and is packed with reverberated percussion, multi-tracked choruses, and a variety of sentimental hooks and beats, a familiar follow-up to their 2012 effort Gossamer. The […]

JamFeed Interview: Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza

As far as electronic music goes, Rob Garza and Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation have already etched out their place in the history books. Use whatever cliched phrase for prolonged accomplishment and achievement that you want. Canonized. Gold-standard. The “bar.” Thievery is all of these things and more. The Washington, D.C. based DJ collective is […]
