Raw Talk :: Benji Alx Connects With Poolboi Blu For ‘Hardcore Championship’

The dynamic duo of Benji Alx and Poolboi Blu are back at it again like a Texas version of Pete Rock & CL Smooth.  Poolboi Blu is quickly building himself a case as a go to producer, and Benji is one of the first artists to consistently use this cheat code.  Their latest single, Hardcore Championship, is some on point Benji braggadocio flow over an off-kilter, nerves-inducing track that is a bit different than what we’ve come to know Poolboi for.  If this collaboration results in both of these artists continuing to push their creative boundaries, I’m here for it.  Dig the track on your favorite streaming service, and share it with your people!

Sample Dosage :: Poolboi Blu Preps For New Release By Releasing ‘Songs For Shinji’

 

Whenever poolboi blu decides he’s ready to be in album mode, it’s a blessing for us listeners, because that almost always means we get a handful of smaller projects before the inevitable big release.  This time around, the first volley is songs for shinji, a trio of tracks that I would not be surprised hearing on one of those YouTube 24 hour streaming channels of lo-fi beats.  The energy is higher while keeping a mellow mood, and the sound is popping out of the speakers large scale.  If this is a sneak preview of what’s to come, then I know we’ve got some high quality tune-age on the horizon.  Props to poolboi blu for remaining focused in such a turbulent time, as all of us stand to reap those sonic rewards.

No Relation :: Benji Alx Snaps On ‘It’s Not Your Boy’

One wonderful bonus of having a talented network of friends and peers is that everything dope and creative ends up on your radar.  With the homie poolboi blu out carving a major name for himself in the Central Texas area, I make sure that I stay attentive to his posts and support them when I can, so when he posted that he’d produced nearly half of the recent Benji Alx release It’s Not Your Boy, I had to check it out on general principle.  I’d always been a fan of Benji Alx‘s way of mixing his laid back nature with an aggressive edge, but I was in no way, shape or form prepared for the lyrical and stylistic onslaught he brought to the table for this one.  I could sprinkle praiseworthy adjectives on this project all day, but it’s best to go ahead and check this one out for yourself, and then reserve it a spot on your local year-end lists, as it’s almost certainly guaranteed to appear on a few.  It’s Not Your Boy is streaming and available for purchase in all the places, so go cop that asap.

Storm Session :: Poolboi Blu Drops ‘Rain Of The Squids’ Project

a0603353171_10

There’s no stopping poolboi blu when it comes to output… matter of fact, it seems like poolboi blu is outpacing the technology, which is struggling to keep up with the output of ideas.  Despite the short amount of time since the release of MasonRain of the Squids stands firm as its own project, and not an echo of the trilogy that Mason was part of.  The beats are a bit lusher, but they still manage to keep that signature aesthetic and vibe the has become poolboi blu‘s signature.  The writing really stands out, with many different styles and deliveries presented that cover a wide range of topics in a short run, including references to WatchmenBlack Mirror, and a many more (some obvious, some layered).  Definitely don’t sleep on this one, share it around, and donate if you can.

Sweet Nothings :: Poolboi Blu Drops ‘Flex With You’ Single

a0872624082_10

It’s been said before, and I’ll say it again : poolboi blu is always up to something, and always working towards something.  After dropping a trio of projects in the past 18sh months, you’d think that there would be some sort of low-key period, but poolboi blu is having none of that.  His latest single, Flex With You, is a mellow track with poolboi‘s version of R&B energy… propping someone up, showering them with gifts and affection, and making moves in tandem.  Like the lion’s share of his work, this one is on point, so definitely check it out, download it, leave a buck or two if you can, and share it around!

89628655_3152001998143120_3737696040963276800_o

I’m starting to think that poolboi blu has an endless supply of tracks in the chamber, and he is basically just sitting on projects while the rest of us are drumming up ideas.  In the midst of dropping multiple projects in the past 18 or so months, working with artists like SiCk tHots, dropping s i n c e r e RADIO mixes and selling beats, poolboi is also adding to his own catalog continuously.  The latest track, Judas, plays like a spell he is casting on the listener, with his chant-like verse echoing personal reflection and dropping metaphors on separating from the pack.  The track is currently up on streaming site, so check it out, throw it on some playlists and share it with your friends!

Vibe Check :: Poolboi Blue Drops ‘Sincere (Volume 014)’ Mix

artworks-oioe8hf7ddfxyigm-5ahweq-t500x500

We’ve got another edition of s i n c e r e R A D I O live and broadcasting courtesy of poolboi blu, and in keeping with the track record, sincere (volume 014) is fire.  In my opinion, the last run has been a bit more on the mellow side, but this one hits the ground running.  There’s lots of focus on hip-hop, and what sounds like a touch of Tame Impala sprinkled throughout.  Check out the mix, leave a like and a comment, and share it around, because it’s fire.  If you find yourself in the San Marcos area tonight, come check us both out at The Porch while we do alternating DJ sets.

Personal Reflection :: Poolboi Blu’s ‘Mason’ Hits The Online Airwaves

a3258130168_10

The homie poolboi blu is back at it again, although in all honesty, he never really stops the creative vibes from flowing.  After dropping ANTSY and DIXIE, both of which gave us a bit of insight into poolboi‘s headspace and motivations, the trilogy of personal reflection finds completion with MASON, an incredibly strong balance of vibrant beats and sharp lyrics that not only display his influences, but are some of the best representations of how far he’s come along in the past year or so.  With poolboi already posting that he’s in the studio working on a follow-up, I’ll add MASON to the rotation as I wait for the next drop, which knowing poolboi, will probably be sooner than later.  Check out the project, cop it if you’ve got a few bucks, and spread it around for others to get hip to.

Anyone who’s been paying attention to the world of poolboi blu lately knows that he’s got a strong working relationship going with SiCk ThOtS, and for the blkburban freestyle, the collective included J.K. The Reaper to increase the vibes.  A s i n c e r e R A D I O exclusive, the track has an amazing amount of vibeyness for such a laid back affair, especially with the nonchalance that some of the tongue-twisting lyrical work is delivered.  You already know it’s going to be quality work if it’s got the poolboi blu seal of approval, so don’t sleep.  Check out the track, leave a like and a comment, share it around, and follow s i n c e r e R A D I O for more exclusive tracks and mixes.

Good Vibration :: Poolboi Blu Dives Into 2020 With ‘Sincere (Volume 013)’

artworks-000660710128-9b4e3s-t500x500

You already know that I’m tuning in when poolboi blu drops a new entry into his sincere mix series, so when (volume 013) got dropped as 2020 was ushered in, it only felt fitting, as poolboi blu had one of the most significant years of any of my music making peers.  Right out the gate, this mix shows the maturity that comes with experience, and knowing where my homie’s head is at right now, I know we’re going to see nothing but bigger and better things in the future.  I see the work he’s putting in, and I’ve heard some of the plans for the future, so at this point I’m just playing the waiting game so that I can say ‘I told you so’ when he’s making noise.  Dig the mix, leave a like and a comment, and share it around so everyone can get down.
