WATCH – Denzel Curry “Walkin”

February 5th, 2022

Denzel Curry shares “Walkin,” the first single from his forthcoming album Melt My Eyez See Your Future, which he announced is coming soon with an official album trailer earlier this month.

Additionally, in support of the forthcoming project, he also reveals the dates for his world tour kicking off this spring in North America and running through performances in Europe and the United Kingdom this summer. “Walkin” arrives with an epic Sci-Fi Western visual directed by Adrian Villagomez which sees Denzel trekking across a desert planet before a cinematic face-off with his antagonist, John Wayne. The Kal Banx-produced song steadily builds into one of the most dynamic rap performances from Curry to-date, foreshadowing what is to come from Melt My Eyez See Your Future.

Tambino New EP + Pitchfork Review!

February 5th, 2022

Tambino is the project of Peruvian-born, NYC-based artist Kam Tambini. Born in Lima, Peru, with his childhood spent across Bogotá and Washington, D.C., Tambini moved to New York City at the age of 17 and toured across North America and the UK with his band Glass Gang.

Tambino takes cues from Kam’s Peruvian and Latin background and reinterprets them through the lens of his time in New York and DC’s punk scenes. Sin Miedo, which translates to “without fear” and embodies Tambino’s genre-agnostic approach to his music, follows his self-titled debut EP released in 2020 The new EP, produced by Michael Beharie, is layered with various genre threads that inform Tambino’s developing sonic invention ‘cumbiagaze,’ building atop traditional Latin sounds.

Bonobo US Tour with Jordan Rakei + New Album

February 5th, 2022

 Bonobo aka Simon Green has released his highly-anticipated new album Fragments via Ninja Tune, which features Jamila Woods, Joji, Kadhja Bonet, Jordan Rakei, O’Flynn, and Miguel Atwood-FergusonFragments arrives with tremendous momentum: rave reviews, featured on NPR Music’s New Music Friday program and coverage from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, The Fader, SPIN, Hypebeast, Zane Lowe, a DJ Mag cover story, an interview on WNYC and much more.

After coming back from touring for two years, Green felt a sense of everything shifting and unraveling with the California wildfires and ongoing pandemic as he set out to make this new album. Born first out of fragments of ideas and experimentation in his Los Angeles studio in 2020 and 2021, the album ultimately was fused together in a burst of creativity fueled by collaboration, Green’s solo adventures into the deserts of California and even his use of modular synths for the first time. Fragmentsis the sound of struggle and isolation, personally and collectively – and of a surging, joyous return. It is a reminder that out of struggle and disillusionment, creativity and hope can emerge at the most unexpected moments.

Jerry Paper Announces New Album!

February 5th, 2022

NEW album announcement and video from Jerry Paper, who’s new project Free Time arrives April 15th via Stones Throw. The album is an expression of freedom on their journey to self-discovery as a nonbinary artist, groover, and, most importantly, shaker of ass.

With Free Time, Jerry Paper invites us to climb aboard their funhouse version of the Starship Enterprise, one whose Prime Directive is self-acceptance— learning to rid ourselves of judgment from without and within, to forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and to boldly go into the Deep Space of our own inner worlds, where our inner wellspring of creativity lies. By the end of the album, Nathan lands their spacecraft and disembarks, and comes out (literally and figuratively) from the vessel embracing themselves for who they really are: non-binary, a beautiful flower, nuanced, strange, bizarre, and flawed…with a ketchup stain on their blue dress.
