hey champ // celebrate

Chance meetings can change the course of everything. In 2008 the duo Hey Champ (Saam Hagshenas & Jonathan Marks) caught the ears of Lupe Fiasco and nothing has been the same ever since. Fast forward. The boys from just outside Rockford, Illinois are currently hard at work fashioning new material for mass consumption (debut album […]

mister lies // dionysian

Winter is drawing to a close, and in my mind the sky is melting sunshine and dripping star-glow aplenty. Now, the time has come for renewal and re-generation and the track “Dionysian,” is the perfect aural representation of all things newborn and reborn. Chicago-based producer/artist Mister Lies (aka Nick Zanca) forges music which taps into […]

videotape // static

Fellow Chicagoans AJ Cesena, Sophie Leigh, Ian McDuffie, Sarah Sterling, and Jenna Caravello are the band Videotape. And while their name may place an emphasis on the visual it is the band’s large pulsing rock/pop sound (and Sophie Leigh’s sexy vocals) that’ll win you over. The song, “Static” is the first single from the band’s […]

lupe fiasco // bitch bad

Always love to hear new material from one of Chi-Towns finest Lupe Fiasco. You can always depend on Lupe to drop something conscious and thought provoking with an ill beat. “Bitch Bad” and the track “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free) for which I have the video, is no exception. Both above fare cuts are […]
