On almost a daily basis, the homies from Austin continue to make me proud. This time, it’s my Exploded Drawing brethren (and co-founders of the movement) soundfounder and Butcher Bear doing it big. They recently took a trip to Los Angeles to spread the goodness that is Exploded Drawing, and while in the area they made two very important stops for mix sets. The pair made a stop at CultureRemixed.com for a mix set and an interview, as well as a mix set stop at dublab, both of which are filled with obscure goodness and local tunage. I’m proud to be a member of the crew, and happy for everything that they’ve accomplished and continue to accomplish… at this point, there’s truly no ceiling for the possibilities in regards to Exploded Drawing and its continued rise.

After 7 years of hard work and endless dedication, the Exploded Drawing family is reaping the recognition they rightfully deserve. 2017 has found the crew expanding into the festival circuit, playing the legendary Low End Theory in Los Angeles, bringing the very same Low End Theory to Austin, receiving recognition in the Austin Chronicle and Texas Monthly within weeks of one another, and releasing vinyl and cassettes via the legendary Fat Beats distribution to commemorate 7 years. Exploded Drawing: “7 Years” Compilation features all of the producers you’ve come to know and love from the crew, an introduction featuring KUTX‘s Art Levy, and it’s all come together on a beautiful full-color gatefold (designed by Michael Scheel) with color vinyl pressings in 2 options. I am so happy for the crew, and forever honored to be among its ranks. Here’s to countless more years of continued fun and hopeful success.

Los Angeles based producer eraserfase already produces sounds that are colorful enough. Recently, his song Sapphire landed in the hands of French artist PEEL, who took it upon himself to add animation to a dope track. The result is a stunning video. Watch, absorb, share, repeat, and as always, enjoy!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I’m sure… Ceschi is easily the most wholly unique entity in hip-hop on any level. The guy can rap on the level of cats like Bone Thugs, where replication of his style is not easy, and yet, with a guitar in hand, he becomes one of the most compelling modern day singer/songwriters this side of Iron & Wine. This live footage from a recent Los Angeles show at Redwood Bar Downtown (beautifully shot and put together by Adam Boren Bennet) is further proof, so dive on in!
