Mood Music: Maze Koroma - "Even Though I Can't Keep Up With You"

Maze Koroma has been on our radar for years. Assuming you haven't been sleeping on the young rapper's talents, he's likely on all of your radars, too. The EYRST and Renaissance Coalition lyricist has recently translated what he's seen in pop culture and the digital age into a triad of hip hop and electropop based projects that could soundtrack the movie on millennial life. 

He'll be playing some of his conceptually appealing extended plays, including the recent TrackList EP, tonight during this month's installation of Mic Check. St. Johns/Chi-town rap vet Vinnie Dewayne is also playing the monthly hip hop showcase thrown by McMenamins, StarChile, WE 96.3, Pabst Blue Ribbon & XRAY FM  at the White Eagle Saloon

Tickets are $7 and the show starts in just a few hours at 9pm, so come get your much needed monthly dose of hip hop.

Aaron Abernathy serves up soulful R&B on new album "Monologues"

Aaron Abernathy could be the future of R&B. With soulful vocals, angular synths and soaring guitar leads that could have been snatched straight from a Prince album, the DC-based artist's latest album, Monologues, is a a funky R&B album that you don't want to skip over. The DC-based artist sets his compelling instrumentals against poignant, smart lyricism, yeilding songs that seem to honor past R&B sounds, but have their eyes set to the future. Check out Aaron Abernathy streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Aminé Puts Portland Hip Hop on the National Map

For the longest time, Portland has obviously been either a barren land for hip hop, rap and r&b, or one where the few bursts we see go fairly unacknowledged or get shut down. Despite a whatever Buzzfeed listicle or Google search turning up repetitive results, our town is known on a national level more for its propensity for indie and less for its abundance of lyrical bars. While acts like Cool Nutz and Illmaculate will forever be beloved household names in the PNW, Aminé has rode the radio waves into the cars of people across the country.

Aminé has had a cult internet following for a minute but his name started massively popping up about a year ago, boasting the flurry of Ethiopian culture, hip hop and electronic found on his two mixtapes. The Benson High School graduate need not prove himself more, as the mad catchy chart climber "Caroline" has been evidence enough.

Whether the muse for "Caroline" will be present or not is unknown, but Aminé will be taking the stage at the Roseland (originally scheduled for the Hawthorne Theatre and Wonder Ballroom) tomorrow. Tickets to the all ages show are sold out so if you weren't able to snag one, you can blast Aminé tracks on his Soundcloud for your own at-home concert experience.

New Music Video: "May 7th" (Feat. Moor Mother) - NAH

The new video for NAH's "May 7th" pulses with a horror-movie urgency, as the track's eerie soundscape is effectively complemented by the gritty black & white backdrop. Directed by Gabe Coffey and NAH, the single features fellow rising experimental Philly artist Moor Mother, and can be found on his rad new LP Michael. The prolific sound sculptor has also wrapped up this 2016 with three more releases in Untitled Works 2016, Enduring, and Garbage Crap so you have plenty to dig into this holiday weekend!
