Pure Hood Xxxtacy, Vol. 1 offers a fine mix of smooth R&B, Hip-Hop that is tailored to La'Domour vocal qualities. With a voice that sometimes resembles that of the late and great George Michael, coloured version, and a vocal style that reflects Babyface's, La'Domour is in good company.
This band won't fail to make you dance your ass off
Northside KUISi is a concept album narrated by news reporters from a distant future who speak an ancient, futuristic creole language made up of Lengua-Palenkera, Anishinaabemowin, Spanish and English. It’s a carefully-woven song cycle of 12 songs with an extra seven hidden compositions. Prophetic words from the future.
Better late than never
A very refreshing Hip-Hop 🤝 Reggae hybrid. “‘Babylon Exists’ - the opening track - is a straight shot at the evil and brutality that we feel from the government and police. This song is an anthem stating that evil is real - and until we all can unite and figure out how to truly put an end to it, it’s gonna live on forever. Babylon exists more than ever.
Heavy beats and lyrics
The composer and producer Tomba is back with his new funk-jazz project Tombajazz. Bassist Tomba has selected well-known musicians from the Munich jazz scene. With his idiosyncratic rap, Kokayi not only makes a political statement but also openly addresses the problem, so that the debate about Black Lives Matter does not remain ineffective.
Shifting the narrative
In Sitka, Alaska, musician, and artist Nicholas Galanin creates music as Ya Tseen. Imbued in his new record, and across all of his creative output, is a conscious effort to shift the narrative away from painful histories of Indigenous peoples. "Indian Yard" humanizes Indigenous experience in the world in a society that has historically dehumanized us.
