Joshua’s ‘Geronimo’ & ’11:11′ Show The Beauty of Experimentation

Listening to Joshua. for the first time is exciting, confusing, and compelling. In two songs flat, the South Carolinian has re-introduced me to how far music can truly be pushed. Geronimo is a rush of an instrumental, dubbed over harrowing echoes, vocal distortion, and low-fidelity mastery. It takes multiple listens to realize how lyrically inclined Joshua … More Joshua’s ‘Geronimo’ & ’11:11′ Show The Beauty of Experimentation

Geno Pacino Fights For His Rights On ‘Justice’

MC’s like Geno Pacino are the reason why I have such a soft spot for nasty, grimy, street-oriented hip-hop. It’s menacing, in your face and unforgiving. And his new single, Justice, is no exception. The instrumental is one of the nastiest I’ve heard this year. The bass is an intimidating grumble, followed by hard-hitting trap percussion with bleak … More Geno Pacino Fights For His Rights On ‘Justice’

ILL Gordon Drops Soulful Party Jam ‘Having A Good Time’

I’ve covered Ill Gordon, one of Chicago’s best kept secrets, for years now. He’s vicious on the mic, and a technically skilled emcee. Gordon’s biggest sell is his energetic tracks (and freestyles) that are best represented by last year’s Imma Beast. When I peeped his latest submission, Having a Good Time, I was surprised – but … More ILL Gordon Drops Soulful Party Jam ‘Having A Good Time’
