A Moment For: The Blunt Sinatras

The Blunt Sinatras met some time ago in Boston at a rlease. Their sets lined up one after the other coincidentally and DJ Homewrecker being himself began to MC Moduloktopus’s set. Together the two made an impression on the audience and from there the events of the evening blossomed into a very real partnership as these things often do.

And now the fifth and final track from the ‘Turnt EP’ ,and final step in our build towards our Mix volume 19, released on Club Tapes and available for free download in full.

Three days ago it was the birthday of Moduloktopus. To celebrate the day and to give “love back as we mature in age” as an essential part of life the first single from his upcoming ‘Reworktopus’ album say it’s first day. Based on the nature of the song I would have to guess that the track appears early on in the release. Given the gift giving has gone in the opposite direction the sound is mighty generous.

The second half of the duo being the high energy DJ Homewrecker. This mans Twitter game is something else. Look for much more forthcoming from Homewrecker and more on his bass music collective / free label, The Mob.

A Moment For: 222 Oceans

All the R&B in the world seems to have set House of the chill and funky nature on the bench to warm it once more. It’s a shame but at the same time House constantly serves as a bountiful place to rest your head once all the first pumping and brain abuse is all said and done. The situation as it is does have good people holding ish down via style and skill. Of course this post is about one particular artist that you should be familiar with. There may be no better time to get aquatinted seeing as how Kanye West just dropped his video for Bound 2 and 222 Oceans may just hold the place for best remix.

A Moment For: EVSTGHXST

avatars-000027816988-hz0kiq-crop All these sounds need are some Green Ova. Even without, EVSTGHXST is producing very Cloud Rap (don’t call it that) friendly music. Even if his intention is otherwise. The dreamy euphoricness.. ness is there in all it’s splendor. Definitely someone worthy of a follow.

A Moment For: WMNSTUDIES

68987_454707801252054_1485056492_nAs of late this SaveMeBoots (left) character has been on just about every other new bill in #vancouver / #yvr. Having never heard him live, some googling was in order. Turns out the indie dance producer is also one full half of the WMNSTUDIES duo, who, if the internet is not lying to me, operate on a east coast west coast axis of Canada. Don’t fill your belly too full with all the free they have. And yes, WMNSTUDIES is in turn Womens Studies

A Moment For: ForteBowie

Artist Bio ::
With a rich Cameroonian background and from on the Southside of Atlanta, emerged the amazing talent of Denzel “ForteBowie” Ayuk. Born in 1990, ForteBowie taught himself to master fruity loops on his laptop and the keys on a piano in his teen years. Then, after being a student of numerous genres, he began to embark on a journey as an artist. Influenced by the styles of artists such as Sade, Phil Collins, Sting, Outkast, and many others, Forte mixes all of his influences with his own flavor and curates works of art.

ForteBowie launched his own brand, 1990, in December 2011 as a way to honor his before and the amazing decade of the 90s. A multitalented musician who can play numerous instruments and is an extraordinary songwriter/producer/vocalist/rhyming circuit of his hometown, Forte has been making his mark in different cities for the past year.

After releasing his first project on March 1, 2011, entitled UberEargasms: The Life & Times of David Ruffin Jr., Forte gained some attention from music fans online but not enough to capture the attention of the tastemakers and big media outlets.

By of July 2011, ForteBowie released his Something About #Bowie project through Refined Hype and attracted the likes of Dj Booth.net, The Smoking Section, Ashley Outrageous, The Fader Magazine, and many others. With undeniable records like Ratchet, Impala, and Decatur the project landed a spot on Live Mixtapes in the Indy section getting a very good score without a DJ. Something About #Bowie included a few notable underground artists such as, Aleon Craft, Stanza, and Dave Flyer.

In 2012, everyone can look forward to ForteBowie’s third forthcoming assessment entitled Passion & Confusion due in the fourth quarter and the rise of an amazing and well deserved artist.
