Synesthetic Dive :: Poolboi Blu And J Brodsnax Collab For ‘Ringtone’ Visuals

The music of poolboi blu can sometimes feel deeper than just your standard boom bap or new jack swing-esque production.  The homeboy has a way of creating sonic textures and landscapes that are emotionally evocative.  Therefore, seeing what j brodsnax put together for the ringtone music video was a pleasant surprise.  The visuals work subtly with the notes that chase one another around the high hats and drums that poolboi blu sequences, even throwing a few visual riddles into the mix.  Definitely worth your time, likes and shares.  Also, get hip to horseplay if you haven’t already, because there’s more video work coming…

You already know what it is.  poolboi blu and his sincere series are making waves in 2018, and sincere (volume 003) keeps the party going with some seriously emotion-inducing tracks.  This is the volume made for a bit of organic relaxation with somebody that you care about, for real.  If you aren’t hip by now, you’re striking out, but it’s never too late to get on the right page.  Shoutout to poolboi blu for consistently stepping up his DJ game.

Rough Housing :: Poolboi Blu Drops The Long Anticipated ‘Horseplay’ EP

a4258548466_10

poolboi blu knows how important it is to keep pumping out new material, and for that new material to push your sound forward.  Without growth, there’s no reason to keep up with the artists that we love and support.  horseplay finds poolboi blu getting extremely comfortable with his sample usage over rhythms that are both upbeat and airy.  Many of the samples are familiar and bring a smile to my face, but the way that they are mixed in gives them a haunting feel.  horseplay is a good course adjustment after the extremely solid chocolat, and it is a good indicator of more positive output in the future.

More Sincere :: ‘Sincere (Volume 002)’ By Poolboi Blu Now Available

a3625111921_10

As poolboi blu‘s notoriety as a DJ and producer has risen, and as he clocks more and more time performing live, his confidence as an artist has grown.  Even though the gap between sincere (volume 001) and sincere (volume 002) has not been a large one, the growth in execution and song selection is noticeable.  sincere (volume 002) is a more upbeat affair, but it does not let up one bit on the thought-provoking and heart-wrenching nature of the songs selected.  These are the kind of songs you dance to upon initial listen, and reflect upon once you become familiar with them.  Hopefully, the volumes keep coming, as the first two have been stellar.

Beatmaker extraordinaire and skilled DJ poolboi blu has been at work in the lab (as per usual).  After a number of live DJ sets in 2017, as well as numerous live streams, poolboi has decided to drop a new series of mixes.  sincere. vol. 1, in my humble opinion, is a wonderful introduction to his DJ style, and a proper reflection on his diversity and musical taste.  Be sure to give this one some play time and some share action.
