I’ll be the first to admit that I am a little late on this new sound making its way in underground music right now. It wasn’t till about last summer that I was introduced to this new sound that has its many influences and becoming its own. The way I’ve been describing this new sound to people is that is has the soulfulness of r&b and house music alongside the 808’s of bass music mixed in with the sampling of hip hop or other pop culture tracks. It’s super fresh and something I instantly was drawn to. Yesterday when I put a call out on my twitter for people to send me new music, one track I came across was IRAS‘s own Terrence Spectacle and his new single “Night Owl”. Already being aware of his previous work, I was stoked to hear some new music. But when I looked and saw the production producers Larce Blake and Medasin I was even more eager to push play. These two producers are making some serious noise right now in the production world of this new “soul trap” sound as is tagged to describe “Night Owl“. The track itself is another classic hit friendly track that I’ve come to notice from Terrence Spectacle. This guy knows how to write good songs. His tracks are super catchy, and he does a great job of balancing his singing cadence style along with his raps. I’ve been nothing but impressed with everything he’s done early on in his young career. Terrence Spectacle should be mentioned as one of the better well rounded marketable artists out of DFW. Peep the track below.

What’s good world? It’s been a minute on my end. I got hella consumed in April. Super overwhelming honestly. I had my regular weekly events, 3-4 one off events as well as guest judging some contests around town, working with some elementary schools on some hip hop shows, and closing out the semester with the college hip hop class I helped with all year long. So with that said, I’m back and so will the content of really dope underground music. So with that said, thank you for riding with me and checking out the blog. Also to be said, DFW hip hop you are always on fucking point. Today I tweeted out to the masses for new music that I wanted to peep and again, you all delivered. First to respond was B.Anderson sharing his new single “We G.O.O.D.” produced by Kal Banx. I can’t tell you how good it felt to click play and hear this greatness through the speakers. I’ve seen B.Anderson perform 3-4 times now and am very aware of his sounds and music. Dude is super fresh with it. Salute to Aggtown on this one. “We G.O.O.D.” starts off with a sample that loops to begin the track then drops with a swinging beat and smooth raps. The lyrics draw you in and compliment the soulful track like butter. The track itself has a reference to Kanye’s “Good Life” in the hook and overall reflects on some of B.Anderson’s struggles and success. This is an absolute banger and will be in rotation on the regular on my music playlists. Check it out below and let me know what you think. #StayFresh

About 8 months ago, I made a decision to jump into the world of managing world and the first act I took on was Grey Matter. We’ve been building and have long term plans before their next project drops but in the mean time, their front man Kilo Art Of Fact dropped his “Illegal Alien” EP. It has been a project in the making for some time now, but the timing couldn’t have been better. This project is just a teaser for the full LP to be dropped later this spring. Their are still some very choice cuts that didn’t make the cut this time around, but If I would you, I would grab this EP while you can. Better yet, while its FREE. Take a listen.

I remember the first time I saw PS The ReBels. I was enchanted in how they incorporated their roots in every aspect of their music. Their words, their beats, their clothes, their dialogue. It had been a little bit since I had checked in on them and when they shared their new video “The Chant” with me, I was enchanted all over again. The video starts off with a chase scene of an individual running through the woods in a futuristic world looking for what they call “indigenous group members”. The beat begins to slowly come in and you quickly realize why this song is titled the way it is, in more ways than one. The beat knocks and brings a primal feeling in you ready for rhymes that are quickly served by SamUiLL and Pihon. Overall a super dope track that you should peep. “The Chant” will be available worldwide Friday April 10th 2015 on their new project “The Great Migration EP“. You can pre-order here -> http://pstherebels.com/music

It’s damn near impossible to keep up with all the super fresh music that gets unleashed around the metroplex. Sometimes music gets lost in the shuffle of everything I am trying to balance on my end but I will always give it a visit. This time around we are looking at a track from KoolQuise released at the beginning of March titled “Focus“. “Quise” as many of his friends call him, is an MC’s MC. His flow is fluid and each word he spits follows each other flawlessly. The beat produced by Jomac is stuttered and Jeru–ishhhh but feels right because KoolQuise guides you the entire way, keeping you focused. See what I did there. Peep the track below.

We are officially back a full week from the SXSW madness that takes over the music world this time each year. Artists are on full swing of releases and following the buzz of the music industry so releasing music at this time makes perfect sense. With that said I am here to share with you new music from Dallas artist Buffalo Black titled, “High Noon“. This release is following up on the buzz he received from his “Enter the Void” song that placed in Spike Lee’s newest film, ” Da Sweet Blood of Jesus“. “High Noon” starts off with an eire western sounding flute sample that sticks to his theatrical themed production and songs I have heard in the past. I really dig Buffalo Black‘s approach to his music. I wouldn’t say that he takes chances with his music but he definitely has a signature touch with his music that makes it fresh and authentic. The track itself has a big room sound, especially when the hook drops revisiting the western flute sample. There is some social context dropped within this track that translates well because there’s a lot going on within the track. From singing verses, rapping, and letting the music breathe, it’s Buffalo Black doing what he does best, creating authentic music. “High Noon” will be a track on his “Surrilla” EP that is scheduled to release this spring.
