Mind Melt :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice + Lo Phi Call On Jeffrey Garcia For ‘Crying Freeman’ Video

After a couple of low key releases the past couple of years, it’s nice to be doing things properly for 2019 once again.  In the wake of Lo Phi and myself collaborating on Uncanny Valley, I felt it was only proper that the album be given at least one music video to accompany it.  Enter mad genius Jeffrey Garcia, who got with me over the holidays (as well as his band of collaborators you can find in the projects at his Jeffy’s Playhouse YouTube channel) and created a visual blitz to match the sonic assault to the senses that is Crying Freeman.  I’m very happy with the quality of the video and the initial reception, and I’m hoping that the rest of you are impressed by the work that Jeffrey Garcia put in for this one.  If you dig it, share it around, leave it a like and a comment, and go check out the entire album on Bandcamp (and all other music services beginning roughly around January 15).

Glow Up :: Poolboi Blu Releases ‘ANTSY’

a0684478910_10

Over the course of the past year, the homie poolboi blu has been cooking up tons of production, releasing beats, mixes and collaborations steadily from month to month.  All of this appears to have been foundation building in preparation for the release of ANTSY, his latest solo project.  A handful of these tracks have seen the light of day over the summer, but hearing them as a collective works extremely well.  Add to this the fact that poolboi blu is becoming a bit more of a vocalist, and it makes ANTSY a perfect closure for 2018 and an indicator of where things are going for beyond.  Don’t sleep on this project, seriously.

Live Vibes :: Stereofiend Visits Untapped SMTX For A Live Performance

Over the last 6 months or so (it seems), there have been a handful of bands promoting live performances at the Fire Station Studios in San Marcos, all of which I’ve unfortunately missed due to my own gigs.  Recently, Stereofiend took part in one of these performances, and Untapped SMTX documented the event for their YouTube channel.  The band is on point for this one, with every member getting plenty of opportunity to shine.  Check it out, leave a like or comment, and share it around so others can enjoy as well!

Mixed Emotions :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Adds ‘Free Radical Thought’ To The ‘Escapism’ Mix Series

a3156441489_10

After what has been a very busy stretch, something around 8 – 10 weeks, I’ve finally found time to return to the Escapism mix series.  As usual, it’s heavy on the rhythm and heavy on the vibes, with an emphasis on favorites this time.  This set is very similar to what I do during my Escapism Plan weekly residency at Tantra Coffeehouse in San MarcosTexas.  If you find yourself in the area some Friday evening, stop by, and definitely check this mix out… plus share it with your friends.

Rapid Expansion :: Bobcat Nation Focuses On UFL And The Feral Hogs

The Unicycle Football League (UFL), based out of San Marcos, has become more than just a local novelty… it is a cultural phenomenon that has gained statewide and national recognition, as well as respect from the NFL.  This year, a new team has taken shape in the form of the Feral Hogs.  The team is made up of mostly rookies and new prospects, with quarterback and veteran Erica Jane Meyer attempting to be the glue that can hold the team together.  Check out the piece, share it around, and be sure to support UFL every Sunday at the San Marcos Activity Center, 2:00 PM.
