New EP: ABRA – BLQ VELVET

26 Jan

Born in South London but raised in Atlanta, the “darkwaveduchess” ABRA joins Father’s (the mastermind behind the minimalist banger, “Look at Wrist”) own Awful Records to release her debut EP, BLQ VELVET. ABRA adds an R&B twist to the recent minimalist trend spearheaded by Father and other “New Atlanta” artists–showing serious promise in just under 30 mins. The standout track “U GO I GO” is almost guaranteed to be on repeat for the entirety of February 14th, while you lurk on your exe’s instagram. Needless to say, the debut release from the “darkwaveduchess” might just be the best thing that you haven’t heard yet. Listen to BLQ VELVET below.

E.R.A. – The Breeze Card Chronicles

9 May

Breeze Card

Last year, we got the privilege of discovering E.R.A., a Hip-Hop artist from Atlanta, GA. I was personally quite impressed with The Dream Act, which showcased this MCs lyricism, wordplay, and soulful, breezy production. Now, I’m honored to present E.R.A.’s follow-up project, The Breeze Card Chronicles (The Breezecard is like Atlanta’s version of NYCs MetroCard). If you enjoyed The Dream Act, you’ll enjoy this too. The eclectic production and sharp wordsmanship (yes, that’s a word) earn my stamp of approval. Check it out below.

ATLien, ForteBowie uses his production skills to deliver a surprisingly dope, reimagined version of Miley Cyrus’ hit, “Wrecking Ball”–that may just be better than the original. Also check out ForteBowie’s excellent remix of Sade’s “Tattoo”. Enjoy!
