New Track: "Hardware" - Moor Mother x Mental Jewelry

In collaboration alongside local producer Mental Jewelry, Moor Mother will release a new EP Crime Waves via Don Giovanni Records on June 16. Utilizing an entrenching, bass-blasting beat, “Hardware” is a grimy tale of perseverance in spite of saddening violence. It’s a heavy sobering commentary. Moor Mother will also be appearing this evening at The Rotunda.

Brooklyn Juiceboxxx debuts big-beat fueled hip hop with 'Freaking Out' + plays Secret Project Robot on 05.24

Music lovers who were sonically aware in the late '90s and early aughts will find a lot to like in Juiceboxxx's debut single 'Freaking Out' (streaming). The tune somehow manages to incorporate in one single track some of the most mind blowing music of that era, from Beck's quirky-yet-groovy production style to the punchy and synthetic big beat of The Chemical Brothers, while adopting a tense rapping style in part reminiscent of The Beastie Boys. 

The track is "about hitting brick walls and fucking everything up but despite it all staying the course and trying to change your life in a positive way." Juiceboxxx's debut album 'Freaked Out American Loser' will be out 7/28 on Dangerbird Records, and you can catch the man live on May 24th at The New Secret Project Robot Space on 1186 Broadway in Brooklyn.

Dance against NYC's cabaret laws at House Of Yes on 05.11 with Juan MacLean, Juliana Huxtable + more

This Thursday, May 11th, Boiler Room is teaming up with the Dance Liberation Network to produce an event at Brooklyn’s House of Yes to raise awareness for Let NYC Dance, a campaign to help repeal the archaic cabaret laws still in effect in NYC. The event, which will be live streamed via Boiler Room’s channels, aims to drive attention to the campaign and encourage people to sign the petition pushing for repeal of the law: since 1926 it has been illegal to dance in NYC without a Cabaret License- a nearly unobtainable license that is far out of reach for bars and clubs that cater to everyday New Yorkers. 

Musically, the night will unify a broad range of DJs/performers to illustrate the diversity of NYC's sound, spanning the range of generations of music and people who have been affected by this law. Each DJ will celebrate a different generation of NYC sound, grounding the event in a historical and educational context. Dancing is part of the fabric of NYC and they want to highlight the absurdity it being illegal to do so.  

Check out the NYC based artists involved in this bill in the playlist below.

Moon Room and Redacted present monthlong AAPI music showcase across the Southland

May is apparently International Masturbation Month (even though July 21st is International Masturbation Day, according to Wikipedia). It's also Asian Pacific American Heritage Month—a celebration worth having with friends beside (or along with) your JO buddy.

Asian American & Pacific Islander voices have historically been reduced and marginalized in Western-centric music culture, but this month the voices of AAPI artists coalesce in a resounding cheer of affirmation. Enter Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Showcase: a series of events spanning six dates, 24 artists, and several venues across Orange County, Long Beach, and Los Angeles as a collaboration between organizers [Redacted] and Moon Room, with support from KXLU, Allies in Arts, Center for Asian American Media, Color Study Zine, and more. Earnest in conception and DIY in approach, the showcase will feature AAPI solo artists and groups of the Southland breaking new ground with compelling sounds and shattering tired stereotypes as they face systemic issues of cultural (mis)representation head-on.

This Sunday, catch the first free 21+ showcase at Fullerton's Continental Room featuring Polartropica, Lions!, PAST HYPE, and Phoebe's Guitar. – Ryan Mo, flyer credit: Roger Hallaway
