From the digital desk of Branden Rex :
‘Originally from Milwaukee, WI Branden Rex moved to Austin, TX to pursue his musical career 7 years ago. While in the past 3 he has rerouted himself into the direction of fashion and business after co-founding an art/music company, Calm Child Lifestyles, the last year of his life has been spent producing his next endeavor. A music/visual project entitled B&W Hipster has been the result. With an array of audio tracks accompanied by cinematic visuals, Rex has mastered a way to brighten up the inevitably dark reality of his world. Not only has he given you something to listen to and see, but you’ve been given something to feel.’
I am looking forward to more of the visuals for sure, as 50¢ Wings was a top notch music video in a year full of stellar Austin-based music videos. Show some support, share, like the work, and stay tuned for more.

If you aren’t hip to Calm Child, these cats are forming a movement. They are the Texas equivalent of a new school Native Tongues… lots of style, completely sincere with everything they do, and loaded with talent.
One of the major movers within the crew is Elles Infanit. A regular on the Austin scene, Elles recently dropped his second EP, Take 2 : Coffee and Cigarettes. Loaded with solid production, insightful rhymes, and great movie samples, this one is perfect for whatever.. vibing, driving, hanging out with the crew, or providing inspiration. Give it a listen, give it a download, and spread the word.
Being a native Austinite, I can attest to the fact that ANY night of the week, even a Monday, can be the livest night. Nasty’s used to go off on Mondays… DJ Mel and DJ Baby G killed to a wall to wall house for years.
Things are no different nowadays. I’m doing Mondays at Triple Crown, so I miss a lot of the action, but I have more than enough secondhand proof that Calm Child Nation is killing it every Monday night at Bat Bar. Exhibit A:
This morning, I woke up to several captivating post on my Facebook network. One of my favorites of the day came from the homeboy Branden Michael Rex, Park N Murray member and Calm Child representer. Not only are the beats and rhymes on point in the song “On Everything”, the video contains some candid moments full of wisdom. Enjoy!
