This V-Day week go see KINGS at The Camel

KSTRAW, who has shared the stage with Grammy award winning musicians Snarky Puppy and Terrance Simean, brings a sense of urgent eroticism to the vocals while DJ Harrison keeps the effects heavy sound crunchy but cohesive.

Don’t miss KINGS with New York’s Escaper February 17th at The Camel in Richmond, Virginia.

Cornel West Theory shows potential on “MR COLVIN (sir)”

Cornel West Theory’s “MR COLVIN (sir)” starts out with an attention grabbingly raw, expletive heavy introduction, segueing into a truly funky beat, just begging to have rhymes dropped over it. To this end, the group does not disappoint, delivering some hard and fast poetry over the beautiful instrumental track. In short, the first two minutes of the track are a slam dunk, truly cutting edge material; a great intro, an irresistibly funky beat, and smooth, hard flow.

Check out “Mr Colvin (sir)” by Cornel West Theory, from their album The T.A.B.L.E. TOO.

It's that Dilla & Donuts Time of Year Again!

It's been 11 years since the world lost J Dilla, but his contributions to hip hop have long stayed with the masses. Detroit's James Dewitt Yancey (or sometimes, Jay Dee) not only produced some of the finest beats around for artists like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, but his prolific lyricism as a solo artist and founding member of Slum Village and his all around endearing outlook on life made him one of the most revered hip hop legends of all time. We celebrate him every year with a Dilla Tribute night and 2017 will be no different.

DJ Ronin Roc from Ante Up will be playing some of best in Dilla's extensive studio and posthumous discography, along with local legned Rev Shines of Lifesavas, Supper Set and XRAY.fm and Portland's veteran vinyl master DJ Kez. And as always, free doughnuts from Voodoo and a custom Dilla Dawg photo booth will there for all to enjoy. Come enjoy a $5 get down with Dilla everything at Dig A Pony on Tuesday, February 6.

New Track: "Venus" - André Altrez

Strings and floating flourishes of flute set the scene before a backend pulse rounds out the beat in “Venus,” the latest single from André Altrez. With a seamless stream of consciousness sense of delivery, Altrez bounces back and forth on a variety of subject matters. The inviting instrumentals open the door to talk about the current state of affairs that ripples with intensity.

DC rapper NAPPYNAPPA shows some versatility on “New Balance”

Relying on a mix of stuttering club beats and spaced out chill jams, Southeast DC rapper NAPPYNAPPA puts on a convincing performance in his new EP “New Balance”. Released through indie DC label Babe City Records, NAPPA isn’t obsessed with looking hard, willing to show a more personal side on songs like “Shameless”. As far as flow goes, NAPPA is pretty smooth and does a rather good job channeling Kendrick Lamar on “DO MY DANCE”. Check out NAPPYNAPPA’s new EP “New Balance”.
