Reality Raps :: Nick Cruz & Ruler Why Connect For ‘Tales Of A Paper Hanger’

a4135025414_10

These cats sound like they’ve been making music together forever.  You already know what you’re getting production-wise whenever Ruler Why steps up to bat, and he’s consistently been able to connect with quality lyricists over the years.  Nick Cruz, in his debut solo EP, sounds like he’s been doing it for decades on top of this production, and the combination is utterly hypnotic.  This is the kind of hip-hop that made me both love it and want to be a member of the creative continuum, as life experiences and viewpoints are given rapid fire in the lyrics, beats and samples used.  Well worth the money they’re asking, so go ahead and cop this one, and encourage others to do the same.  On the real.

Humble Bragging :: Notes Keeps The Heat Coming With ‘TRIPLE DANG SNAP’

artworks-000476826741-3e6mdu-t500x500

Notes Floats is at it again, and all of us old-school Austin hip-hop heads can get properly hype about it.  FULL STEAM AHEAD is apparently in the works, and if TRIPLE DANG SNAP is any indication of what’s in store, it’s going to be another win for Notes, the losing champion.  Notes does what he does best on this one, spitting humble brags and dropping properly dope references over a Gorilla Monk beat.  This one is catchy as hell, hitting all the right tones and attitudes to keep the gears turning and your head nodding.  Dig this one and dig it good, share it around, and leave a comment.

Bonus Beats :: Lantic Releases Singles In Preparation Of ‘Anti-Gravity Elevator’

a1730751428_10

Being involved in the central Texas music scene is a blessing for fans of unknown or up-and-coming bands.  Between band members, label owners, sound guys, bar owners and promoters, you’d be hard pressed to go a week without hearing about a handful of local gems.  In my quest for website content, I sometimes get so many recommendations that I overlook some, and Lantic is a prime example of this.  The guys at Apogee presents… posted about Lantic in regards to their upcoming album, Anti-Gravity Elevator, and I promptly saved the link and forgot about it.  Upon digging back through my saves, however, I gave the new tracks a spin, and now I’m waiting urgently for the full-length release, as Lantic hits all the same buttons for me that bands like Tame Impala or artists like Jim James hit.  If you’ve not heard of these guys yet, now’s a good time to get hip.  They were good enough to warrant a double post today!

Headline News :: John Valley Premiers First Trailer For ‘Duncan’

2019 promises to be an exciting year for many creatives, myself included.  Exhibit A : John Valley and his debut feature film, Duncan.  After a successful crowdfunding campaign via Seed&SparkValley and crew shot the film, and going into festival season, it appears we may have something in the works that could potentially make some noise.  Working on this project was a blast, and I’m honored to be a part of it in any capacity.  Stay tuned to Duncan on your favorite form of social media, and be there when this one hits, because it feels like it’s going to hit big.

Traffic Jams :: Click-Clack Drops New Single For ‘Speeding’

artworks-000480438066-q3wcc3-t500x500

From the moment I first heard Bulletwound, I knew Click-Clack had style for days.  Over the years, he’s managed to prove me right by consistently reshaping and evolving his sound, especially when it comes to collaborating with other producers.  That’s why it shouldn’t be any surprise that Speeding hits so hard… producer ICYTWAT serves up a killer of an instrumental, and Click-Clack drops a couple of different styles intermingled together to drive us through the track.  While it would’ve been cool to get a longer song, I’m happy with this banger being a the quick fix that it is.  Definitely share it around, give it a like and a comment, and stay connected to what your local creatives are doing.
