One of my favorite things to do as someone with a modicum of a voice in the Austin hip-hop culture is to share other creators that I find high caliber and inspiring. Doing this through mixes has always been a favorite way to do so, but it’s been a while since I dedicated time to doing so. With so many talented acts from or based in Austin, it’s impossible to get them all in one sweep, so Escapism : Southern Comfort reaches for the vibey side of things… all of my peers are substance-based, but these are acts that I consider high style as well. Direct peers like Riders Against the Storm (RAS), Cory Kendrix, anom, PNTHN, MC Homeless and Chris Conde, wallaby and bobbes, Ddotelles, Click-Clack and more get shine alongside established acts with Texas roots like BROCKHAMPTON and Travis Scott. I’m happy with this one, and hopefully folks dig it enough to spread it around!

There’s new music on the way from Milli Mars, and it’s dope… check out the video for Tokyo Noir from the forthcoming release The Toyotomi EP:
I have a confession to make, and it will probably get me in trouble one day, but I really do not care for San Antonio… I love people no matter where they are, but that black cloud I’ve managed to avoid for most of my days becomes a heat seeker the second I’m inside San Antonio’s city limits.
With that being said, there is a WEALTH of talent that holds it down for Sa-Town. One of the many artist making a name for themselves is Milli Mars. If you haven’t already checked out the video for The Alarm, get off of front street and do that immediately.
Because I love you all, I did a little digging around, and I found the album, YMID, on SoundCloud. The entire thing bangs… dig:
Facebook and the many other social networks out there are always a great source for new local and underground music. The friendship I have built with my peers over the years has led to some great musical discoveries, and yesterday was no exception.
Courtesy of my man Ocky GoodSounds comes a recommendation from my southern IH35 neighbor San Antonio. Up to this point, I wasn’t familiar with Milli Mars, but you better believe he’s on the radar now… don’t sleep.
