After a string of successful singles and videos, Red Comet is officially poised to make a mark for himself in terms of the Central Texas music scene, and perhaps even further. His style is a unique mixture of hip-hop, electronic and counter-culture influences, all brought together by an awareness of what’s going on in the world at large rather than what’s happening stateside. I LOVE YOU, Red Comet‘s debut release, encompasses all of this and more, and it is available on all streaming services at this time. Red Comet definitely has the potential to make some major noise, so get in on the ground floor while the getting is good!
If feels like poolboi blu just blessed us with ANTSY, but clearly, he is not one to rest on his laurels. After ‘taking January off’ like a lot of us creatives did (taking the month off being tongue in cheek, as we were still putting in work), poolboi blu is back in full swing for February with a follow-up track drop to his latest entry in the sincere mix series. The track, shmoney, is a Cardi B flip with the distinct characteristics of both the sampler and the sampled present. As a bit of a bonus, the mutual homie Red Comet stepped up with a video flip as well that perfectly suits the track.
Check out both of these gems, do the appropriate amount of downloading, commenting, sharing and all that, and don’t forget to support your local creatives!

I’ve been watching Red Comet develop from what feels like day one, and seeing his confidence grow has been exciting and inspiring. Red Comet is honestly one of the busiest individuals I’ve ever met in terms of creativity, and yet he still finds time to put out honest, personal and heartfelt work. His latest creation is a music video combining two of his singles, I FEEL LIKE UZI and AT NIGHT. The video takes place in the iconic Yellow Store found in San Marcos, and it’s a nice slice of life insight into Red Comet as he finds a way to be expressive and creative within the confines of a job. It’s great work, and by the time I found the video, it was well over 1,000 views with a stellar like to dislike ratio. If you want to see more output from Red Comet, be sure to share this one around, leave it a like and/or a comment, and give the channel a follow.

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.
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.
