Interview: Los Rakas’ Raka Dun

Always on the quest for new music, there’s nothing better than following smart and diverse music-listening artists who put you onto other artists in the same lane. Getting a random tweet about Oakland based Panamanian pair Los Rakas’ latest record ‘El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo’, this album’s been on repeat ever since. Addressing a […]

Interview: J. Stalin

It’s no secret 2014’s been a banner year for underground hip-hop releases. In the first five months alone, West Coast legends and newcomers have provided my ears bangers to spare. Amid the barrage of new music, doing his part to rep for the established Oakland scene, J. Stalin dropped his latest offering, Shining in Darkness […]

Getting to the middle of the year.

The end of the year isn’t quite around the corner. Still there’s nothing wrong with starting to think about what the best albums of the year so far, since the year is about half over. The top five albums I’ve heard up to this point are: Withered Hand-New Gods EMA-The Future’s Void Future Island-Singles Metronomy-Love […]

The App Making ‘BigNoiz’

When it comes to apps, if you’re a music fan like me, you don’t need 80,000 apps to fulfill your live music or content needs. With several hype-filled music apps in the marketplace, it’s easy to get lost among apps that aren’t user-friendly i.e. requiring you to provide your first born’s blood type to log […]

Fest Review and Interviews: UCLA’s JazzReggae Fest

Now that Memorial Day is over and folks emerge from food comas like bears from hibernation, it’s time to recap the wonderful musical festivities taking place this weekend. Returning for my third year to UCLA’s JazzReggae Fest, I spent my time this weekend listening to some R&B, jazz, reggae and hip-hop on Jam Day at […]

Interview: Low Leaf

As a music lover, there’s nothing better than randomly finding an amazing artist/composer who puts you on to another artist/composer doing the same. Thus the way the universe guided my introduction to LA artist Low Leaf and her latest offering ‘AKASHAALAY’. Since coming into my consciousness, this new album’s been on repeat. Personally finding myself […]

Fest Review: United We Stand Festival

Amid a rough and drama-filled week, The United We Stand festival, sponsored by the Free and Equal Elections Foundation, successfully brought a diverse community full of thought leaders and influential artists together to discuss important political causes recently. Initially unsure of the fest location, I attended a media event on a Friday night which mingled […]

Becoming The Boss and Getting Back to Biz Basics: Music Biz 2014

Learning about the Music Business Association (Music Biz)’s annual conference a few weeks ago, I grew extremely curious. It’s no surprise there are so many confusing facets to the music industry behind a creative artist – distribution, digital and traditional media channel promotion, metadata analysis of hits, streams and units, label contracts, tour booking, ticket […]

Interview: Incan Abraham

Spoiled by the abundance of great album releases this year and still wading my way through after my SXSW whirlwind, one release catching my attention was Incan Abraham’s album, ‘Tolerance’. New York formed and LA based, this foursome recorded their latest full-length LP in Hollywood’s historic Sound Factory, a storied studio used by Tom Waits, […]
