March 30, 2016

By Kaitlin

Virginia uprising Amir Driver takes on the smooth title of Slick Rick in his latest visual as he spits undeniable bars, allowing listeners in on his impeccable rhyme scheme. The braggadocio content of this record layered over heavy horns & bass demands attention as Amir & his squad, “SET,” cut through scenes with dirt bikes, 4-wheelers, & Jeeps.

Driver feels as though he’s earned his right to brag & certainly has put in enough work for you to think of him in the likes of “The Ruler”. His style is polished & his rhymes compliment this as fact. Ladies & gentlemen, “It’s Slick Rick The Ruler”.

Tune into his latest video & keep it locked as his forthcoming project, Over Everything will make its debut soon.

[Brand New Music] Wyclef Jean – My Girl

March 28, 2016

It’s the return of the Carnival Man are the first words heard on Wyclef Jean’s newest offering, “My Girl.” The island-inspired song marks his official comeback to the music scene. With all that’s going on in the world, the Haitian musician is looking to use this brand-new effort as a way to touch the world with good vibes.

“This song takes me back to my Caribbean roots, this is what a Carnival feels like,” Wyclef told The FADER.  He continued, “I was doing that in ’97, and it’s great that the Caribbean sound is embraced much more throughout everyone’s music. Those sonics and chords from the Caribbean, the reason why they work is because they make people feel happy. They make people feel free.”

“My Girl” is an ode to women. “I’ll do whatever it takes. Words cannot express the way I’m feeling,” he croons on the song’s hook. Throughout the record, he trades lines with vocalist Sasha Mari.

Fans now have the opportunity to get in on “My Girl’s” current buzz. A meme generator, which features the “Karib” crown displayed on the song’s artwork, allows people to upload a photo of someone who they feel deserves the recognition.

(Sound)+(Vision) – “IN THE PINES” Lookbook

Fostering a new breed of ingenuity, (Sound)+(Vision)’s Delray Beach, Florida-based creative director Aaron Rice channels the splendor of Seattle rock music with his debut collection, “IN THE PINES”. Home to some of the world’s most renowned bands (Nirvana and Pearl Jam are first to come to mind), labels and venues; it is undoubtedly no secret that Seattle has played a major role in cultivating the expansive indie music scene we see today (stretching as far as psychedelic rock to underground hip-hop).

Drawing direct influence from Takahiro Miyashita (Number (N)ine/The Soloist) and Jun Takahashi (Undercover) among others, (Sound)+(Vision) looks to build its foundation as a budding label through the heavy usage of font-based graphics. What may first appear to be a rehash of the work of past Japanese designers, (Sound)+(Vision) is in fact doing the contrary by bringing in something extraordinarily innovative to the table through a sharp display of intricacies that any generation of music lovers could appreciate.

Following a “design is born out of research” mantra, it is evident how vigilant Aaron Rice is in portraying something that is not only authentic, but also crafty to the more fanatical crowd of devotees. A closer examination of the title of (Sound)+(Vision)’s inaugural collection reveals that testimony in its truest form, channeling us back to Nirvana’s live rendition of “In The Pines” (I.E. “Where Did You Sleep Last Night) during MTV’s Unplugged performance in 1993.

Worn among the likes of Fool’s Gold signee Rome Fortune (pictured above), Wara From The NBHD and SAVEMONEY’S Towkio, (Sound)+(Vision) looks to appeal to a diverse, yet hip audience of musicians and insiders who have a understanding of the importance of a project built on strong identity coupled with extremely well-researched associations. It is always a thrill for us to be able to oversee the escalation of …read more
