2K19 REVIEWED: LO$TBOY$YNDICATE – PERPETUAL

ARTISTS: LO$TBOY$YNDICATE SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM Carolina hip-hop collective LO$TBOY$YNDICATE are undeniably a fascinating collective. A four piece whose approach to rapping is heavily inspired by the exuberant, fun-loving sound of late 80’s/90’s groups like De La Soul and The Pharcyde, LO$TBOY$ have crafted a discography undeniably worthy of attention.

Interview Season 2: Dr. Alien

An elite producer working with some big names in the underground, Dr. Alien has really set himself apart from his contemporaries with a consistently dark, oppressive approach to production. His grasp of melody is astounding, and based on what I’ve heard from him over the last few months I’d confidently say he could tackle almost any style. I say this […]

ARTIST: LIL DISCEASED SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM Having just blessed us with this surprise EP on his birthday, Lil Disceased has proven again that he’s one of the underground’s hardest workers. Opener ‘WHY DA WORLD SO FUCKED UP’ sets a bleak tone that’s maximised by aliengawd’s gloom-laden industrial nightmare. Lil Trvsh injects a little melody into the proceedings on ‘OFF DA […]
