Laid Back :: Kydd Jones Performs ‘Untitled’ For Bedstock 2018

While attending and performing at Austin City Limits Festival 2018, local hip-hop standout Kydd Jones of the LNS Crew took some time to stop by Bedstock 2018 for an intimate acapella performance of Untitled.  Bedstock, an event hosted by MyMusicRx, is a Cancer awareness movement where artists perform in a bed as a show of solidarity for children fighting Cancer that are stuck in a bed.  As the flagship program for the Children’s Cancer Association, the work that MyMusicRx does is important for educating and informing all sides on an illness that has made an impact on most all of us.  It’s good to see artists like Kydd take the time to align themselves with positive groups like this, as it shows a real awareness of how much weight their voices carry, and it can hopefully help in the efforts of finding cures and affordable treatment for all dealing with Cancer.

Master Class :: Da’Shade Moonbeam Takes Part In NPR ‘Tiny Desk’ Contest

Right around the beginning of each year, NPR kicks its Tiny Desk Contest Concert Series into gear.  The rules are simple… record yourself performing a song, and you must include a desk of some sort in this performance.  This year, I plan to take part, but I also plan to showcase all of my musical friends and peers who are choosing to take part as well, in hopes that our scene can make some much needed noise.  The first cat out the gate for 2017 I have seen is the incomparable Da’Shade Moonbeam, sharing a piece of work he has labelled as Untitled at this time.  Don’t let that lack of title fool you, though… nothing that Da’Shade puts in the world lacks depth or substance, ever.

Early Release :: New Click-Clack, ‘Untitled’

Untitled by Click-Clack has hit the digital realm.  Originally slated for release on December 1st, this is so new that I haven’t even had the chance to listen to it yet.  But, as a lover of hip-hop and a supporter of local music, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t immediately spread the word.
