Xenia Rubinos, Sammus and Olga Bell release collaborative track

Strange and wonderful things can happen when three talented artists from completely different musical backgrounds join creative forces. One of these "things" is Levitating (streaming below), a mostly hip hop track that merges Sammus' rhymes with Olga Bell's European flavored electronic production and Xenia Rubinos Hispanic music influences. Born from an instrumental penned by Bell, the track is a perfect example of what NYC is (and has been for awhile): an irreversible melting pot of races and culture, where positive collaboration trumps any difference and distrust. The message here is that (hard) work and curiosity are the best antidotes to intolerance, and these prolific ladies know something about it. Check out the track below, and catch Xenia Rubinos at the Ecstatic Music Fest at the Kaufman Center on January 27th. 





Blockhead’s heady hip-hop headlines Elsewhere 12.22

Production is a craft, and Blockhead does it with restraint and delicacy. His earlier work with rap great Aesop Rock proved his talent for beats and hooks, but his more recent solo efforts have shown him capable of unexpected and unusual twists. Instrumental hip-hop demands a high caliber of production and Blockhead’s taste for off-beat samples and ruminating song structures meets the challenge. You can catch the born-and-raised New Yorker next at Elsewhere on December 22nd. – Cameron Carr

Sample the indie NYC Hip Hop talent with "LNYCHPIN"

The Iron Chef of Brooklyn-based producers Willie Green and Rapper/Karma Kids labelhead Lt. Headtrip have curated a Michelin worthy taste of NYC’s independent rap scene.  The combination of the seven producers and 16 MCs involved in this project creates a flavor both familiar and fantastically new.  It’s savory like a burger with a steak on top of it with subtle essence of arugula and avocado (because: Brooklyn, you know?), and an aftertaste of Malt liquor and Absynthe.  Following in the heels of brokeMC’s DEADBEATS and Willie Green’s Doc Savage, Hip Hop camaraderie never tasted so good. Stream it for free right here!





EaSWay slams onto the SF hip-hop scene with "The Panther In The Room" EP

The newest EP by the San Francisco-based EaSWay entitled The Panther in the Room (streaming below) is the exact type of career-defining work that any emerging artist needs, especially on the R&B and hip-hop scene. The 6-track project bumps all the way through, letting the catchy hooks, infectious beats, and introspective lyrics speak for themselves. EaSWay marries new trends with the classic conventions of hip-hop, paying homage to old favorites while inventing something completely new. This triumphant EP shows a hungry artist on the rise, prepping to take over the scene in a big way. Don’t sleep on this one and listen to the whole project below. - Lilly Milman





Brooklyn rapper Josh The Word drops video for new single “Fall in”

Brooklyn rapper Josh the Word pushes forward through the seasons with sharp lyrical delivery and smooth soul vocals.  His new album “Psyched Out” is emblematic of that New York sound that has been made popular with everyone from J57 to Junk Science.  It’s boom bap with equal parts earnest candor and quirky imagery.  In another beautiful narrative video, Josh takes us to the fringe of both civilization and civility.  Hip Hop has always had a combative method of escapism. Dig out your ski-mask and prepare to dig a little deeper.  - BrokeMC
