Build A Bridge :: SniperShot Is ‘Walkin On Clouds’

SniperShot is one of the more interesting artists I’ve come across in my years of Texas hip hop.  He isn’t one to shy away from normal conventions, yet his headspace is completely different when it comes to how he views these conventions.  Of the many songs and videos he has made, this one in particular does a good job of visualizing the vibe I get when I listen to SniperShot‘s music.  Walkin On Clouds is as mysterious and esoteric as it is a head nodder of a hip hop track.

Niche Exploration :: KIBO’s ‘Elements’

Bigger Each Year :: Exploded Drawing SXSW Compilation 2015

There are TOO many people on this compilation to list, but trust me, every time that soundfounder and Butcher Bear get together to show the world what Exploded Drawing has in store for the year, it’s a hit.  Throw in A Better Tomorrow handling the sonic polishing, and we’re in it to win it.  I’m especially proud of this one, because I have a track on here from the upcoming instrumental release Slow Burnout, plus a collaboration from Butcher Bear‘s upcoming album with BoomBaptist.  Dig it, share it, and support your local underground movement!
