Crazy Hood Film Academy Presents: “Coming Home”

A journey of self-discovery that can only be embarked on with your help. DJ EFN and Garcia of Crazy Hood Film Academy are working on a sensational project that needs to be completed for the sake of hip-hop. Coming Home is a documentary film aimed at exploring how hip-hop “translates” the Cuban-style. In the land where Father Time seemed to have neglected his job when you see the classic American cars, but seemed to show no mercy on the Spanish-style architecture as evident in their deterioration... Read More →

The State Of: Goodbye Show 06.03.12

When we first told you about Nabedi Osorio and Steph Taylor who make up The State Of last year we were excited to see where a female duo could take Miami music. Sadly, after five years together we’ll be bidding our farewells to half of the group, as drummer Nabedi Osorio looks for her next great adventure on the other coast. It seems Miami is losing many talents to Los Angeles from Smut + Bass’ Dave Betamax to our colorful purveyors of happiness FriendsWithYou. And while we try to stifle... Read More →

[Podcast]: DJ Guilletine presents El-P

1999 marks the year in which a genius founded one of the most legendary record labels to show face in the Hiphop world. This record label is Definitive Jux (Def Jux)… The genius is Jaime Meline (El-P/El Producto). Today marks the day that El-P releases his, very anticipated, fifth album… and yes! We do include some of the tunes in this mix. As we all know, El-P is not only one of the craziest beatmakers of our generation but he’s also one of the most technically gifted MCs of... Read More →

Steven A. Clark – ‘Chemistry’

The last time we heard from Steven A. Clark he was nursing loneliness with strippers on “Lonely Roller” (ft. J.Nics). But his latest release came from a scientific collaboration with production team Mr. Familiar, the non-album cut “Chemistry” is Steven’s interpretation of visual chemistry.  Originally an instrumental release for Mr. Familiar’s upcoming Time Traveler EP Steven A. Clark gives it a Free Lve vibe with a lot less lonely. Let us know what you think... Read More →

[Podcast]: DJ Guilletine presents Damu the Fudgemunk

As much as Guilletine and my self are fans of instrumentals, I’m totally amazed that Damu The Fudgemunk took this long to shine light on. We’re constantly listening and learning just to bring all of you some of the best Hiphop you’ve probably never heard and trust me when I say… this might just be one of those artists. A master at the SP-1200, Damu the Fudgemunk is also a student to some of his (and your) idols such as Pete Rock, Grap Luva and even DJ Premier. And you will... Read More →

[EP Review] REBEL – Locations

I recently talked to REBEL’s frontman Micke and asked him how the band’s new release, Locations, was coming along. Micke said that he was excited and extremely proud of their work. I honestly didn’t expect anything less from REBEL. But then I got worried when he said that this project’s sound was more mature. When I hear the word “mature” used to describe a band’s sound, I tend to kind of freak out. In my mind, when a band says their sound is mature it means... Read More →

[Antisteez Artist Highlight]: False Flags

I prefer the indies over mainstream any day of the week; the problem is the technology available to us is a double edged sword. Talented independents such as Young Circles, ¡MayDay!, The CornerStoners et al, have a plethora of resources right at their fingertips to take their craft to the next level. The downside? They’re competing with trash. Amateurs and impulsive, frivolous individuals who decided 20 minutes ago they want to make music are also using these tools. The result:  Read More →

[Podcast]: DJ Guilletine presents The Beastie Boys

Considering we just lost one of the legends last week (R.I.P. MCA), DJ Guilletine and Antisteez decided to pay homage to one of the most epic crews to ever touch the Hiphop scene. One of our past writers is the biggest Beastie Boy fans in existence (I’ll fight whoever says different) and we asked him to pick out the songs that best described The Beastie Boys. And obviously DJ Guilletine made the magic happen with the tracklisting. 33 years making music, The Beastie Boys released a total of... Read More →
