Akinyemi pays tribute to the past, embraces the future, performs at Elsewhere 05.25

The elegant hip-hop beats that dominated the tracks of 50 Cent's 2003 breakout album Get Rich or Die Tryin' feel like a relic of olden days. The splendor of those beats was in their concentration of funky bass lines, R&B buffs, and kickdrums that popped alongside the velvety verses that laid on the track. It is the smoothly-layered words of NYC's Akinyemi—alongside his tribute to those beats—that make the artist a standout in the current crowded hip hop market. In his song "Fleece" (streaming) the young MC suggests protection from the elements: he references the frigidness of greed, the heat of competition, the winds of change. Akinyemi says, "the weather isn't bigger," and the more you listen to his track, the more you feel inclined to believe him. The Queens Village rapper is ready to bring his message to Zone One, Elsewhere on May 25th, loud and clear. - Rene Cobar

Take a break with Annabelle Maginnis’ “Steady”, performs at The Echo on 5/13

Annabelle Maginnis is driven by the spirit of collaboration on “Steady.” On her latest single, the singer/multi-instrumentalist takes a moment to take a break from all the noise and rush of everyday life. The smooth slow jam—which features prolific hip-hop rapper Def Sound—tucks you like a warm blanket, on which her mellifluous vocal delivery dances around his slippery flow. Combined with the sleek chord progressions of keyboardist Smiley, the blissful track invites listeners to sit back and unwind.

“Steady” is the second single off her forthcoming project, Free Debris. Watch her perform at The Echo this coming Monday, May 13. Juan Rodríguez

New DistantStarr Album Available for Streaming & Download

Meshing a grimy aesthetic with wisdom refined by maturation, DistantStarr creatively captivates on Fine. Delivering thematic storytelling against classic jazz-R&B grooves with experimental ends, the songs occupy a cruising but crucial space. Press play, and allow the poise of the music to take over. DistantStarr is slated to perform as part of the Duality: First Friday music and art show on Friday, June 7 at Philly Art Collective.
