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.

    Jaden Smith has released an artsy new video about unrequited love called "Blue Ocean", after posting the song on his sister's SoundCloud last month.  And I'm going to be completely honest with you… there is some aspect of it that I actually liked; I don't know what it is. The video was directed by his close friend, Moises Arias, aka RRRIIICO from Hannah Montana, whose picture with Jaden's sister Willow caused quite a stir back in May of this year. Jaden samples Justin Timberlake's "Blue...

    Australian singer songwriter Courtney Barnett has been causing quite a stir in the past last year and since I’m always one to trust anything that comes out of the land down under (how can you not with that accent) I decided to give her stuff a listen. Her music combines melancholic and storytelling lyrics to folk rock and soft pop melodies.  Tunes like Avant Gardner and History Eraser helped get her radio play, but there’s also something to be said about her more intense and heavy songs...

      As one of today's most important cultures, the video game industry is once more at the center of a controversy regarding violence. Last week, a group of Polish developers (Destructive Creation) unveiled the trailer for their first video game ever, Hatred, and it is shockingly sick.   A new definition of violence   The player controls an unidentified man ("My name is not important, what is important is what I'm going to do") out on a killing spree. Now, this situation is not...

    A music video for girl duo XO! has surfaced the interwebs and is making its rounds on Vine. There's not much info on the girls online that you can find, except a soundcloud page with 2 tracks, a twitter account and a Vine account. Helene & Maliibu make up the hot group that seems to have just been formed not too long ago. Signed on Island Def Jam Records, we might be seeing a lot more from these two hot chicks in the coming weeks. The track and video for "Starin' at it" seems to...

    Released on October 24th (worldwide) and 28th (US) as a joint venture between Universal Music and Swedish label Svenska Inspelningar is the Sonny Alven remix of Nause’ “Another You.”  At just twenty years old, Alven is carving a name for himself as a refined house producer, and this remix clearly demonstrates this. Taking the resonating melody and bringing it out with even more clarity, he builds the tune gradually. Introducing a softly padding drumbeat and mood lifting guitar riffs, “...

     Sweeping vocals, atmospheric pads, and intense, melodic riffs – the new single from Duvoh is a massive cut of progressive electro house. Out now on on Deorro’s Panda Funk Records, there are big drums, progressive chord work and infectious melodies that lift the track to new heights.  Adrian Delgado’s vocals add more than just a dash of class to the epic opening breakdown, before the drop brings on the hardcore fist pumping. This is club music at its most fiery. You can get your...

    Last Tuesday night Nattie and I made our way to Montreal’s version of Williamsburg aka Saint Henri for a quaint little supper. “Where did you guys go eat, Jessica?” asked the fictional person I just created 2 seconds ago. Well friend, we went to tickle our taste buds at fusion Indian style restaurant Rasoi for their 1 year anniversary party! Rasoi (meaning “the kithen” and pronounced ruh-soy) serves amazingly delicious Indian cuisine with new age twists on traditional dishes. As soon as...
