TroyBoi’s “Hooper” A Slam Dunk From New Album ‘Left Is Right’

Troyboi is the king of all things swag in music. Every beat this man touches brings groove, funk and a little uumphh with it. Gearing up to release his new album ‘Left Is Right’, the british bass and hiphop “Music Manipulation Specialist” has premiered the first single “Hooper”. The game of rhythm in “Hooper” begins with a kick drum reminiscent of a certain Flume track and Healthy Chill spitting bars. The beat is minimal with naught but the rise of white noise building to the drop. Healthy delivers a final lyric and we’re warmly welcomed by TroyBoi’s head-bob inducing beat more »

Joey BADA$$ and Oddisee: No Alternative Facts.

I listen to a lot of podcasts, in particular American comedy podcasts. A popular sentiment in light of the current political climate is that questionable times call for exceptional art. An expensive price to pay. Less than one week into the Trump presidential era, it seems that although we may be facing a turbulent time, the exceptional art is already coming dense and swift. Leading the pack is Joey BADA$$ with “Land of the Free” and Oddisee with “Like Really”. Both politically charged, they provide a somber, informative and most importantly (but not at all surprising) banging point of view. more »
