EDITOR’S PICK (A.K.A MY TYPA $HIT): SNAKEHIPS – ON & ON ft. George Maple

Hey guys. In addition to all the other super freaking cool segments on this site, I’m adding a segment called Editor’s Pick of The Week which in all honesty just means the music that I’m rocking to at that particular time or music that I’ve always been obsessed with. There’s no time limit really it could be a song released in 1980 or a few minutes ago, it’s just my kind of music. A lot of people ask me what’s on my personal playlist and I guess this is your way of finding out.. week by week lol.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: ALESSIA CARA

So apparently there’s this 18 year old Toronto born singer called Alessia Cara who is getting heavily slept on by the world. The Def Jam artist recently got signed from her own amateur Youtube videos where she did amazing acoustic song covers.  She has a beautiful silky voice that keeps you wishing the songs were longer and the fact that she writes her own songs just makes her so freaking cool.  Make sure you give her a listen , I bet she’s going to be huge one day.

I always enjoy listening to fresh, upcoming young rappers from any part of the world. As soon as I heard Eleftherios on Soundcloud, I immediately gravitated towards his music.

ALBUM REVIEW: THE INTERNET -EGO DEATH

I must say, I’ve not always been a big fan of The Internet. I liked songs here and there but never really got to that point where I could say that I fuck with their music heavy. But after this album you can definitely  count me in as a fan. I’ve officially been sucked into the whirlwind of soul and acid- jazz that this band exudes.

“Ego Death” starts on an edgier, more confident note with the song “Get Away” with it’s extra sexual and direct lyrics. I’m a super R&B fan, but the really really soulful kind, so I tend to listen to more 90’s stuff. I just feel like the  music was realer, and more straight forward back then. With the Internet , they kind of bring back that feeling , they don’t over-complicate their lyrics, and Syd’s delicate and sensuous voice relaxes your nerves and creates a wonderful sultry atmosphere. In my opinion the best part of their music, is the instrumentation , I mean , they are a band! The ambiance induced by the blend of each instrument is overwhelming and impressive.
