Live-tronic duo Skymatic, the Atlanta based pair consisting of producer/multi-instrumentalist Phil Ross and violinist Hannah Wilder who brought us the mesmerizing track “Starlight,” have been carving out a name for themselves by playing shows all across the country this summer with little time to catch their breaths. After playing the main stage at Imagine Festival in Atlanta, they even rolled through Nashville last week for an incredible set supporting Liferoot and Govinda.
Lucky for us the duo took time out of their busy touring to release a brand new EP that ventures into a very different type of sound from what we’re used to hearing from Skymatic. On Trap Sessions Vol. 1, they provide a unique take on electro-trap with highlights including the boisterous “Everybody Go,” and “Babylon Flex.” It takes quite a brave leap for an artist to move away from a certain type of sound and branch off into something distinctly different, but thats a part of the creative process. Grab the download of Trap Sessions Vol. 1 for free and check out more of Skymatic on Facebook and SoundCloud. Enjoy.

If you like Chance The Rapper’s style, “chances” are you’re going to like this video from KR. He made his GMAD debut when he was in the second installment of the RAW Cyoher with Futuristic, Curren$y, and more, but earlier this month he dropped a mixtape, I$0Lyf3 3, and today he follows it up with visuals for one of the songs off the project, “Westside (Ayy Yayy)”. Everything from the style of the video, to his rap flow from 1:05 to 1:35 is reminiscent of Chance The Rapper, but don’t let that fool you. KR is not just jacking his style, and this is really the only time the comparison can be made because all in all, KR is breathing a fresh air into hip-hop’s culture. Enjoy!

Beautiful. Just beautiful. I have been sitting on this song for a week, and played it over 100 times already and it is just as good as the first time. Xavier Dunn strips down the production on one of the biggest rap songs from 2013 and serenades us with a very unique vocal arrangement. Anyone that knows me, knows I am an absolute sucker for indie artists covering hip-hop such as MisterWives covering “Hold On We’re Going Home” or Gentleman Hall covering “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe.” Go give Xavier a like on Facebook and enjoy!
