Affirmation Raps :: Poolboi Blu Keeps Up Momentum With ‘Dad Moves’

Screenshot_1

These days, it’s weird if poolboi blu doesn’t drop new music within the span of a workweek.  After being rained out for a 4th of July event, poolboi blu decided to break out his new recording setup and dive deeper into the output.  The result is the ambient infectious gem dad moves, a track that seems like a quick motivational buildup (or maybe a quick reminder of what poolboi blu is made of).  The track brings back memories of the groundwork laid in the slept on classic cloudy w/ a chance, and hopefully it will lead to more vocal work from poolboi blu on top of his already vivid production.

Taking Flight :: Poolboi Blu And J Brodsnax Reconnect For ‘Schwifty’ Video

poolboi blu may be moving forward in terms of constantly dropping new music, but that has not been at the expense of continuing to promote his recent standout EP, horseplay.  In his efforts to create a music video for each track, poolboi blu and video collaborator j brodsnax decided to delegate 3 of the project’s 6 tracks to j brodsnax.  The latest selection, Schwifty, just hit the airwaves, and it’s a psychedelic spin through prisoners in confinement still managing to find expressive and positive outlets via showing their skill in a dunk contest.  The hypnotizing track works well in tandem with the slow motion, washed out and color drenched footage, slightly hypnotizing you and making the just over 2 minute long track breeze by.  Word on the street is that the duo has one more video under their sleeves, so hopefully they unveil it for us sooner than later.

Doubling Down :: Poolboi Blu Drops Two New Tracks

Screenshot_1

poolboi blu has been getting quite the buzz lately from his heavy output of new tracks, as well as his sincere mix series.  The latter, however, has been a slight sore spot in regards to Soundcloud hosting sincere mixes, as half of them have been removed due to copyright issues.  When sincere (volume 004) was recently removed, poolboi decided that the best answer would be to drop new music.  As a result, we’ve been blessed with the incredible earworm that is rusty.  The drums bang, the guitar loop is infectious, and the switches that poolboi throws on the track are pleasantly unexpected.  If rusty is any indication of the quality that the upcoming late bloomer will be, I’m definitely excited.  On top of dropping this banger of a single, poolboi blu also laced Soundcloud with snugger, a little Young Thug-based fun.

The weekend is almost upon us, and nothing can help boost your weekend like good tunes.  The homie poolboi blu is hip to this fact, so he stays dropping mixes, new tracks, and on occasion, remixes.  This go-round, he’s taken Vai Toma by MC Pikachu and turned it into a fun, bouncy track (one that he’s been integrating into the live sets quite effectively lately).  It’s hard to hear this song and not smile just a little bit at least.  Give it a listen, a comment, and a share to help boost those stats, and keep supporting your favorite local creatives.

Making Waves :: Red Comet Enlists Poolboi Blu For ‘Wavy’

Watching poolboi blu ascend the ladder of success has been fun.  The last few times I’ve been through his spot, he’s played me tracks and spoke of plans for upcoming songs and projects.  Even when he’s laying out the gameplan, however, he keeps a few things to himself so that the element of surprise is not eliminated.  That’s why when I noticed he produced a single for Red Comet, the incredibly infectious Wavy, it caught my attention.  Red Comet was spitting, and the beat was hitting, then poolboi stepped to the mic with some solid bars of his own.  Needless to say, I was impressed all the way around.  Check this one out, because I think it just found its way into the Doomsday mix cycle.

Mellow Masterpiece :: Poolboi Blu Keeps The ‘Sincere’ Momentum Going With ‘(Volume 004)’

You’d think with the summer heat on the horizon, poolboi blu would be ratcheting up the vibes, but on his latest mix of his soon to be iconic series, sincere (volume 004)poolboi opts for a mellower set of songs.  The R&B jams that open the mix are a refreshing change of pace, and when the bars start dropping it’s like ‘the party was already going, so why not invite a few more friends?’  I’m always going to be ready and on the lookout for a poolboi mix, and he certainly hasn’t let me down yet.  For those catching this post while it’s relevant, you can catch poolboi blu and myself doing 2X4 DJ sets this Thursday at Buzzmill San Marcos, and this Friday at Tantra Coffeehouse (San Marcos).  Don’t sleep.
