Powderr Stressed Out


No Comments

Today we have Powderr dropping by again with a new song. He is an artist from Sudbury Ontario Canada. He has been in the game for a little while now and has made great strides in a short time period. The song Stressed OUT is a different style than what we have seen on his previous releases. We’re excited to see what he brings us this time around.

Thoughts On the Song

This song is so deep and is different than the previous tracks Powderr has sent us over. All of us have been exposed to or dealt with anxiety, stress etc. I personally struggle with anxiety, depression and other mental illness on a day to day basis. So I know how hard it can be to just be on the go because you have no choice but to do so. At times, we can all feel alone but music, I feel, is an outlet for us to deal with some of the stress. It’s an escape of sorts. Due to the topic, I think it best not to critique or put any negativity towards the song. Listen for yourself and see if you can relate as much as I do.

Fly Guy J & Flamo: Designer


No Comments

Today we head over to Rochester, New York for Fly Guy J and Flamo. Fly Guy J is a producer and owns a studio in Rochester. He started a Youtube series called “On the fly” where he invites an artist to the studio and they create a beat and song from thin air.

Flamo is an artist with a few accolades under his belt including an invitation to freestyle on Funk Flex’s “inflexwetrust”. He has also been featured on WorldStarHipHop.com, Vibe, and IndepndentDope.com

About “On the Fly”

In episode one Fly Guy J and Flamo collab on a new song titled “Designer.”

Let’s watch and see what Fly Guy J and Flamo have brought to the scene.

The show starts off with Fly Guy J, cooking up the beat and you truly see how the entire process comes about. It is meticulous to say the least, when creating a beat. I have been privy to seeing beat making in person and it is incredible how producers create magic from nothing. That is exactly what Fly Guy J has done for the beat.

Next, we go in the booth with Flamo and experience the creative process between Flamo and Fly Guy J to get the vocals on point. We also get to see a bit of the mixing process. We finally end the episode with a montage and the song playing. It is a fire track.

Thoughts on the Episode

I think this is a great concept for a series and can’t wait to watch more. I can tell Fly Guy J has his branding down pat and the video is executed to perfection.

As far as the song goes, it is radio ready and I’m hoping it’s spinning on the radio already. Flamo absolutely kills it. I am impressed by the delivery. This song is just dope and I have zero criticism for it. I didn’t even finish the song before I added it to my Spotify.

OA KZ Orange Soda Remix


No Comments

This week we have a brand new release from Chicago’s very own OA KZ. He brings us the visuals to his remix for Orange Soda. Chicago artists are known for a different style altogether but OA KZ is showing that although we come from Chicago, not everything has to be so tough. I’m looking forward to more music from him as he continues to make a staple on the Chicago hip hop scene.
