Obama be drinking beer. Yo, yo, but fo real doe, my stance on immigration is clear. If you ain't into beer, then get the fuck outta here. Vancouver, where you at?! We repeat, Vancouver, WHERE THE HELL YOU AT?! This city continues to surprise and amaze us with its unwavering loyalty to good hip hop music, a feat that we neighboring Americans are seldom aware of. If you read our show review of Cunninlynguists from last week, then you hopefully gained some idea. But when People Under the Stairs (aka People, or PUTS) showed [...]

Those that know me know that I have an enormous amount of respect for hip hop - that's why I listen to it, do a radio show about it , and love it with a fire to rial the summer heat in Austin. However, having a great respect for an art form does not preclude me from reveling in said form when it just gets totally silly. Because of that, I am a total sucker for novelty hip hop and I sure hope you are too because this month's mix is all Halloween novelty hip hop curated by yours [...]
I originally wanted to make a mix of music inspired by California about six months back when I moved to The Bay Area from Minnesota, but shit got hectic & I got lazy. I moved out to Cali because I wanted to get into the music/tech scene and Minnesota just wasn't cutting it. Well, I've been in & out of some pretty cool creative companies since, but still haven't landed a permanent job. Especially at the one company that actually drove me out here (quite literally), SoundCloud. My attempts to get SoundCloud's [...]
Role of the Ride (Cymbal) It’s the jazz cymbal, if you were wondering. The ride cymbal is that sizzling, soft, and delicate presence in many (most) jazz songs. The big one that is usually on the right side of the drumset, above the floor tom. It has quite a history, but at the moment, I’m only concerned about its use in one genre. [...]

Following South by Southwest, it appeared as if everyone suddenly kicked off tours everywhere. Chicago's Metro hosted some fabulous gigs (e.g. Wild Flag, Porcelain Raft), New York exploded with buzz bands, and California offered up two unique festivals (Paid Dues, Coachella). Our photographers snapped shots night after night, making April one of our busiest months on the live circuit in a long, long time. Naturally, they had a blast. Event: Wild Flag at Chicago's Metro (4/5) Photographer: Michael Roffman What Michael Says: “It [...]

It’s been seven years since the inaugural Paid Dues Independent Hip Hop Festival took place in Los Angeles. The annual music festival has since gained a solid reputation for its celebration of the diversity in the underground rap universe. Curator Murs’ vision hasn’t changed, even if the fest’s venues and sponsors have—his commitment to supporting up-and-coming artists is unwavering—but this year, it seems he had to make a few concessions to keep attendance up in this economy, and as a result, Paid Dues 2012 had more big name acts than ever. Beyond the stacked lineup, the event was [...]
