Reflective Pool :: Poolboi Blu Drops ‘Sincere (Volume 008)’

artworks-000530492478-pcp0yb-t500x500

A few days ago, I found myself chilling out at poolboi blu‘s crib with the homies gostPink Ranger and a few more folks.  We were watching the Rockets beat the Warriors and basically having a good time in anticipation of the Pecan Street Festival that weekend, but while most of us were hanging out, poolboi blu was in work mode, putting together the mix that would become sincere (volume 008).  For this session, we find a series of reflectively lyrical songs with extremely heavy rhythms, all of which are definitely complete vibe-setters.  As always, the mixing is on point, the song selection is way ahead of the curve, and poolboi blu continues to drive home the culture and aesthetic he has created for himself.  Dig it, leave a comment, and share it around.

Funky Dividends :: Poolboi Blu Drops ‘Shmoney’

a2009000329_10

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!

You already know what it is.  poolboi blu drops a new volume in the sincere series, and folks should take notice.  For sincere (volume 007)poolboi blu decided to focus on diversity even more so than usual, in terms of tempo, tone and cut selection.  The result is another seamless mix, but one with plenty of dynamics, and not just for flash, but rises and falls that take you on a bit of a journey through a handful of newer songs and current favorites.  If you haven’t been lucky enough to catch poolboi blu live lately, or if you’ve just been stuck on Antsy, don’t sleep on sincere (volume 007), because the series is alive and well.

Quiet Confidence :: Poolboi Blu Drops ‘Sincere (Volume 006)’

a4049036626_10

It’s common knowledge that I’m a fan of poolboi blu‘s sincere series of mixes.  His taste in music is always refreshing, and his song selection is cutting edge… often way ahead of the normal curve.  With sincere (volume 006), we find poolboi blu making moves in the higher BPM range, but with much more reserved confidence than high-energy performances in the rhymes and singing.  The mix is longer than normal, but with the sounds you’re getting, that’s a good thing.  It’s good to know that the sincere series will hopefully continue into 2019 and beyond.  Definitely give this one some listens, some shares, and maybe even a few bucks so that poolboi blu can enjoy the holiday season properly.

Clean-up Hitter :: Poolboi Blu Knocks It Out Of The Park With ‘Sincere (Volume 005)’

a3243502116_10

sincere (volume 005) just dropped, and it’s safe to say that poolboi blu is feeling maximum levels of swagger these days.  The sincere series has been getting progressively stronger with each release, but (volume 005) is a true achievement.  The song selection flows seamlessly… the mixes are clean, concise and executed precisely… best of all, poolboi blu doubled down on the mix length, clocking in at just over 45 minutes with (volume 005).  There’s a handful of songs I really dig on this mix, as well as a few that feel like possible new favorite songs in the making.  This mix is most definitely the right way to transition out of that summer madness.

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.
