High Powered :: Poolboi Blu Continues The Run With ‘Ramen’

a1662235737_10

It’s official.  If you see poolboi blu mentioned in the title of one of my blog entries, read the article if you want.  The important thing to do, from this point on, is just to trust that the content is fire.  Ramen is poolboi blu just showing out at this point… after dropping DIXIE, a unique mixture of personal reflection and textured bangers, Ramen is a straight sonic flex.  The beat is fire, the rhyme is fire, the delivery is fire, and the cover is an instant classic.  It’s getting hard to come up with new adjectives, so just check the track out for yourself, pass it around, and get ready to hear this one on a lot of my mixes.

Double Dive :: SiCK THoTS And Poolboi Blu Reconnect For ‘Easside’

What happens when you connect musically, and it sounds dope?  Naturally, you do it again.  Funny enough, SiCK THoTS and poolboi blu must agree, because they recently dropped dual singles in support of their respective projects.  Nites and Weekends showcased the range that will be found on poolboi‘s upcoming project DIXIE, and it seems like SiCK THoTS convinced the homie to collab on Easside, their latest single.  The song is a laid-back powerhouse, perfectly capturing the feeling of kicking it late night in East Austin, be it a good or bad night.  I feel like this one is going to get a lot of play from me, especially while I’m on the road, so do yourself a favor and check it out on your favorite streaming service as well.

Poolboi’s Game :: Poolboi Blu Drops ‘ENDER’ Single

artworks-000596990138-bqm7qo-t500x500

poolboi blu‘s latest single may be titled Ender, but he’s certainly not playing any games.  His last single showed range, but Ender is a display of growth in terms of poolboi‘s lyrical content and delivery.  With each rap song the homie releases, I see the confidence and skill growing, and I’m all here for it.  Keep your eyes open for DIXIE, because it’s definitely going to be a banger and a half.  Go check out Ender on your favorite streaming service, and encourage others to do the same.

Introductory Rate :: Poolboi Blu Teases ‘DIXIE’ Release With First Single, ‘Nites & Weekends’

Just when I think I have poolboi blu figured out, he goes and throws me a curveball.  After a successful run with ANTSY that showcased his creative and brand growth, his confidence grew visibly with each live show and mix release.  In my mind, with DIXIE in the queue and ready to go, I’d figure poolboi would’ve dropped a track flexing on everyone, but instead, we get the highly polished Nites & Weekends, a dancier track featuring guest vocalist SiCK THoTS.  I’m surprised in all the best ways, pleasantly so, and my excitement for what poolboi blu has in store for DIXIE has just multiplied.  Check out Nites & Weekends, leave a like and a comment, and spread it around for others to check out as well!

Rising Swag :: Poolboi Blu Hits Double Digits With ‘Sincere (Volume 010)’

artworks-000580117895-pzlv04-t500x500

You already know what it is… sincere(volume010) is officially live over at s i n c e r e R A D I O thanks to my main man poolboi blu.  Now that we’re officially in double digit territory, it sounds like poolboi blu is showing just a bit more flex in his song selection… the normal dynamic ranges of mellow to body moving are still present, but the lyrics in the song selection show just a bit more urgency than normal, and DEFINITELY are showing a whole lot more in terms of putting a foot down.  The theme for this round is definitely about recognition and making an imprint in the game, locally or otherwise, and in all honesty, poolboi deserves mad recognition.  Check out sincere(volume010), leave a comment, and share it around for others to do the same.

Best Life :: Poolboi Blu, Sincere (Volume 009) And Living The Good Life

artworks-000556602573-0bpimp-t500x500 

poolboi blu has a lot to celebrate these days… his show schedule has been busy, the latest Faylita Hicks release was exclusively produced by him, he has new merch available for the summer, and poolblu.com recently went live.  poolboi blu has always been one to spread the goodness around, and it seems his idea of celebrating this latest wave of good would be via the release of the latest mix in his now iconic series, sincere (volume 009).  There’s been a bit of mellowness on the last few mixes, but for the most part, this one is a bit more high energy.  Otherwise, it’s up to par with all that you’d expect from the series… on point track selections, clean mixes and transitions, and it’s long enough for you to vibe to while being short enough to leave you anticipating the next volume.  The sincere series seems here to stay, as does poolboi blu, so do yourself a favor and get hip (if you’re not already).

Indelible Force :: Faylita Hicks Releases ‘Onyx’

a0033862260_10

The things that Faylita Hicks has accomplished on the spoken word scene are numerous and valuable enough to give the average person a sense of career and artistic fulfillment.  Like many of my central Texas peers, however, I know Faylita is not satisfied with conquering the obvious, and all of the work she has put in has led her up to the point to transition into something greater.  That being said, the seeds she has planted over the years are coming to fruition in 2019, as a secured distribution deal for her book #Hoodwitch has provided her the opportunity to release a warning shot in the form of Onyx, her latest spoken word release.  A collaboration with producer poolboi blu, the project showcases a handful of poems from #Hoodwitch, which allows us to get a sense of the deeply personal and thought provoking words that Faylita plans to share in her book.  Don’t forget to check out the artwork for the individual tracks as well, especially while taking a moment to read along with the performance on the track.  Trust me, this is one experience you will not want to miss.
