New Track: "of Iron" (Feat. Gozu) - Acid Orphan

Acid Orphan, a.k.a. Andrea O. Bullard (of Etheric Felines), recently released a new single. DJ Diabolic handles production on “Of Iron,” which also features Gozu. Envisioning a time-traveling, alternative reality of living during the time of Genghis Khan, the track exhibits authoritative aggression. This storming delivery is compounded by the rock/hip-hop hybrid beat, injected with noise, as the percussive push remains omnipresent. An attacking intensity permeates within an energetic exuberance.

Matt Maratea debuts funky new single "Can't Make It Up," MGM Live performance set for 07.12

West Springfield, Massachusetts is bumping to the latest single from their very own surging hip-hop star Matt Maratea. "Can't Make It Up" revs up a deliciously funky guitar riff that then blasts off alongside a pounding bass for a dance groove that enkindles Maratea's already captivating flow, abundant with charisma. The production by Tantu and Danny EB is squeaky clean, showcasing the producers' ability to layer harmonies in such an organized way that they create an entrancing atmosphere for the mind to escape to and a sonic spectacle that commands the body surrender unconditionally. The brand new single incorporates just enough pop and funk elements to create a viscous hip-hop hybrid track too sweet to ignore. Matt Maratea will be taking the MGM Springfield Stage by storm on July 12th, and we got "Can't Make It Up" streaming below in anticipation. - Rene Cobar





Get lost in the ambient, lo-fi world of Public Library Commute

New York based multi-instrumentalist Conrad Hsiang creates chill, lo-fi influenced soundscapes under the project name Public Library Commute, drawing from both Japanese hip-hop and contemporary alternative RnB to craft something novel. Last year’s sienna 1999 encapsulates these diverse genre influences in perfect form, with tracks like “fake hawaii” employing sticatto vibraphone-like noodling over Hsiang’s detached auto-tuned vocals. Hsiang’s lyricism and vocal performance in particular breathe new life into a genre of music that’s frequently criticized for its repetitive nature, elevating lo-fi from its stream-heavy, easy-listening reputation to something that is engaging—but still relaxed. Listen to it below, preferably while basking in the warm summer sun. -Connor Beckett McInerney
