Pull Up :: Poolboi Blu Drops Another Banger With ‘Lounge’

a2440130882_10

Summer is coming to a close, and if there were a shortlist for summer MVP, it’d be safe to say that poolboi blu would be somewhere near the top of it.  Be it solo singles, sincere mix volumes, or collaboration with Red Comet, the amount of work that the homie has put in these last few months cannot be denied.  The Red Comet collaboration series continues with lounge, a track written and produced by poolboi blu with engineering and cover art assists from Red Comet.  The track plays like a personal affirmation, with poolboi walking it like he’s talking it.  My man has always been fire with the tracks, but what really stands out on this one is the confidence that you can hear growing in his lyrics and his delivery.  It looks like poolboi blu the MC may slowly be stepping out of the shadows and into the spotlight… time will tell.  I’ll definitely be around to watch that spotlight action go down when it happens, and the smart ones out there will be right there with me.  Dig the track, share it around, and support your local creatives.

In all seriousness, who out there is putting in the work this summer at a level comparable to poolboi blu?  My man has been putting has not only been putting out steady material, but quality material as well, with a range of sound that scans a wide spectrum.  His latest gem is sandy, a quick little banger that manages to be both high energy and a mellow banger in equal measure.  This one is a true earworm if there ever was one in the poolboi blu catalog.  You know the drill… likes, shares, comments, and props for our local superstars.

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

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

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.
