CAMILLE STORM PRES. THE PLAYLIST

the-playlist-1

Hey guys,  so as you guys may have noticed I’ve written extensively about #NuNairobi( the artistic revolution currently occurring in my city)- on this blog and on other publications as well. Well a few months ago I was approached with the idea to curate an event based on the #NuNairobi scene as it blows up and continues to manifest itself to the world . I was really skeptical because let’s be honest, I’m a lot of things but  I wasn’t an event organizer; but after a period of thought I decided to give it a go!

ALBUM REVIEW: FRANK OCEAN – BLONDE

The greatly anticipated sophomore album by Frank Ocean is finally here.  Frank has officially pulled a Lazarus on us, but he came back better than before. He also released a visual album “Endless” which is impressionistic to say the least. I must say the announcement was underwhelming at first probably because I didn’t even think it was true.

For us die hard Frank Ocean fans, it’s the end of a long wait…I’m low-key going to miss all the funny memes and trolls though. On a more personal note, “Nostalgia Ultra” got me through a lot of shit in the past so I mean it when I say I needed this album.

The Canadian music scene has officially blown up and I’m totally here for it! Another artist who’s been everywhere lately is River Tiber. You might recognize him from Kaytranada’s LP “99.9%” in the song “Vivid Dreams”, but now we can get a glimpse of his own mind in his debut E.P “Indigo”.
