IX Podcast 05: JPolo

  • We first found out about JPolo over the summer. His Aquahub EP (available here), filled with proper instrumental hip-hop beats, jazzy synth sounds and underwater vibes (further described here), would charm both the newly and the most initiated. We're talking waves here. They hit you like a soft breeze. That is not to say JPolo is afraid of true hard-hitting hip-hop. It is the way he blends his own mellow sound with today's rugged trap music that will surprise you.

    Charlton Diaz x Sam Moukhaiber

    Something about the JPolo sound made us want to showcase another very worthy URL talent. Tumblr-sphere artist, established male model and aspirant music producer Charlton Diaz agreed to provide artwork for this podcast. We invite you to visit his blog and check out his recent collaboration "ACCESS_BOY" with photographer Sam Moukhaiber.

      The "L" in LA must stand for longevity. Flying Lotus has been one of the leading pioneers in the LA beat scene since the release of his cult-classic debut 1983 and isn't showing signs of slowing down.  Since the enigmatic beatmaker has had the tendency to evolve with every passing record groove, it's sometimes hard to pinpoint just what makes Fly Lo so special. Somewhere in between the buzzy sine synths, hypnotic percussion and bargain-bin vinyl crackle of his early cuts lies a...

      After the heart-wrenching loss of the comedian Robin Williams, videos and stories have been popping up all over the internet to give tribute to his amazing influence in our lives. I think the kid in all of us cried a little when we realized we lost our magical blue friend, Genie. So, Disney added a tribute at the end of Aladdin.Other tributes to Williams make reference to his other movies, like Dead Poets Society. Twitter was trending with the hashtags #MyCaptain and #OCaptainMyCaptain,...

      NONI WO may not be a name you have heard before but get ready to be sucked into their trance filled adventure of a song. This Montreal pop club may have just released a single that will make U S B E P one of my  most anticipated EP's of the summer.  Their single alternates between an ambient and experimental chillstep. Putting together a perfect blend of beats, samples and real instruments on one laptop may never come out this sexy ever again.  The four minds...

      Aphex Twin fans have had a lot to speculate about over the last few days. On Saturday, a blimp with the Aphex Twin logo and the number '2014' appeared above London, England. Simultaneously, the logo appeared stenciled outside of NYC's legendary Radio City Music Hall. This morning, that speculation was (partially) put to rest when Richard D. James' posted his first tweet in two years - a cryptic URL that can only be accessed by using the mega-secure TOR browser. The URL links to the below...

      Last week, it was announced via Twitter that Michael Jackson would release a new single called ''A Place with No Name'' off his ''latest'' posthumous album, Xscape. In other news, Michael Jackson rolled over in his grave for the 56 millionth time since his death. Holograms freak me out. If I learned anything from ''This is It'' it was that Michael Jackson was a perfectionist. He would be absolutely mortified if he knew that his estate was releasing tracks that did not receive his personal...

      I could spend my time on this platform harping about how lame Metro Station are and how stupid it is to see them back together, but I am not going to do that. 1.) Because I don’t believe those statements to be true and 2.) Because that is mean and has nothing to do with the music video for “Love & War”. But, now you know that Metro Station is back together after being on hiatus since 2010. Initially Metro Station was a solo effort after member Mason Musso bought rights to the name when...

      Falling down the rabbit hole into Shambhala Music Festival is like entering a portal, it’s an escape into another realm where you can tap into different frequencies of consciousness. I know, I know I sound like a dirty crusty hippie with no standards, who claims to be a nomad even though I came from white middle class living. But before you go all ape shit on me for being a dirty un-showered hypocrite just look around. Are you sitting at your day job hating your life? Don’t you just want to...

      I was having a discussion with my girl, Ginger (yes, that's her real name) about why all these female rappers seem to think it's necessary to hate on each other every waking minute of their life. Her response was that it's all about "maintaining the title". So naturally, i'm sitting here thinking to myself, "what the fuck is that supposed to mean?". I'm about 27% latina, 32% Italian but i'm also about 150% white girl so if you do the math (I don't have a calculator right now, but if you do-...
