IX Podcast 05: JPolo

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.

    We first featured British vocalist, MNEK, when he did a beautifully soothing live rendition of Coldplay's "Magic". Last time we made sure to emphasize the fact that this guy has one of the strongest voices in the industry. His new track, "The Rhythm", stands behind that. This time, we're here to stress the creative talent and the sensational mind that this 19 year-old crooner possesses. His resume alone speaks volumes. Among the plethora of artists he's written for, he's got writing credits for...

    The general reaction from anyone when I confess my love for One Direction (specifically Harry Styles — because I mean C'MON!) is usually a scrunched up face and a resounding "That's disgusting". This is the most common reaction because I am probably a little too old to love adorable boy bands as much as I do. The words "creepy" and "wrong" immediately come to mind for anyone listening to my babble about how hot so and so is or how many times I watched their latest video — because that doesn't...

    Who says balloon sculptures are reserved for the average birthday party clown?  After being approached by Garage Magazine, Robert Moy, founder of The Brooklyn Balloon Company, demonstrated his talent by recreating Keith Haring's well known Five Dancing Guys (1987).
