When it comes to street buzz backed up by real skill, Ben Buck has to be at the top of any list of Austin MCs you make. For the last couple of years, his hustle has been impossible to ignore, and on his latest single Spirits, we got not only a brief oral history of this experience, but a dual demonstration of growth as a recording artist and confidence in his skill level… the latter of which is ironic, as Ben Buck was never one to doubt his skills. Flobama easily matches Buck‘s energy and urgency with his production, making the testament that they will ‘break y’all’s spirits if you fake that realness’ one with real weight to it. This song has the makings of being both a mixtape and live show staple, so check it out, leave a comment, and share it around for others to get familiar with.

A couple of years back, Feral the Earthworm did what many of us artists wish we could, and even added his own twist : he quit his job, terminated his lease, turned a van into a mobile living space and recording studio, and promptly hit the road. Feral toured all over the states, continued to make music, and essentially has been living his dream to the fullest. In celebration of this, he recently connected with Buddy Lewis & Car Molstad, and over a Flobama beat, he and the crew set out to the forests of China Grade to record a performance of Do What I Love, an appropriate song for the situation. The finished product is dope, and the visuals match the beauty of their surroundings, so go ahead and check it out, leave a like and a comment, and spread it around to your friends.

This album is good old fashioned boom bap beats, with a little bit of far eastern influence for good measure. flobama came with it hard on Strong Style Slaps. These are the kind of albums that make my producer wish list just keep on growing…
