Mack Ned Introduces Thraxxhouse

Posted by in Features

Mackned is a rare breed of Seattle artist that achieves what many visionaries endeavor to pursue. The Seattle artists latest project, Celebrity Etiquette, should be listened to as the chrysalis of a cascade of projects that has gained major fuck-with traction online and in Seattle, with ‘Etiquette pushed behind the success of Mackned’s previous success Female: Female sounded like a perfect fitting of Mackned in Seattle, but on Etiquette we can envision ‘Ned in the studio with some big fishes in modern rap production such as Ryan Hemsworth , Abe Beats….read more

Lil Peep – Singing to your ‘ex

Posted by in Uncategorized

Along with the Schemaboys, producers Yung Goth, itsoktocry and Nedarb Nagrom, Lil Peep has thrown up all over our speakers and we can’t get enough. ‘Peep’s melodic rinse on phonetical trap ambience slaps wistful recalling’s that stinks of cigarettes ashed inside a trap house somewhere inside the Northwest, as I lay next to my benzos overhearing my friend’s collection of intoxicated trap stems he would rather delete but tonight he’s feeling it.

Dex is not afraid of the drill lifestyle. He is in love with it. He is dancing so happily within the trap hand in hand, its a showcase of how much swag he can actually possess. Borderline transcendental in his flow and delivery, sweeping over trap with an oshkoshbagosh outlook on the findings of drug addiction, threat of gun violence and gleeful misogyny that merely serves as a masquerade through which Dex dances without a mask. Dex makes the intimaditing inviting, and instead of pushing you away with angry boasts and lyrical…read more

Larry League – The kids are alright

Posted by in Features

When your little brother gets on the mic and starts spitting fire… The view of rap in 2016 from the Larry’s point of view is an interesting turn of phrase. Atlanta has become such a hotbed of depraved hip hop experimentation where awful is perfect and melody is king.  Larry league picks up where the last white rappers left off and show us a refreshing sonic space with a naïve, cocky and abrasive attitude: a toddler with a 40oz. The trios occupation of different spaces in the jungle beneath beats…read more

Posted by in Uncategorized

A newfound Miami Ultra, Yung Lean has been sipping lots of content in 2016: Lean has turned to anthems, a musical tactic that has worked in his favor despite hailing from Sweden and lacking an avid home base. Internationally, Yung Lean is already a legend of sorts, mythically embracing the success and druggy downfall that relates to the greatest musical and artistic expression we have seen from Lean online. Soundcloud and YouTube have helped Lean cement his fan boy discography whose imitations of the rappers he grew up listening to inevitably…read more
