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.

    After teasing their fans with some 20-second snippet, Major Lazer, the Diplo and Switch music duo, have finally released the anticipated music video for their single "Lean On," featuring the Danish singer MØ, and DJ Snake, known for his "Turn Down for What" single. All four traveled to India, specifically to Mumbai, to film the clip. As the song has an electro-bollywood feel to it, it fits along the colourful video in which we see the singer and the djs perform a plain, yet fun...

    There is something that I can't put my finger on when listening to Shash'U's latest EP. This Montrealer is well-known for his classic funk and groove style, but it seems like he decided to flip the switch on some next level shit with PWRFNK. Without a doubt, this EP is set to shake things up a bit. It's kind of hard to describe each and every song, even the whole thing as a whole. You need to give it a listen. The whole listening experience is sort of like when you're in a dream where you...

    Ever since the inaugural events of the first ever MURAL Festival in Montreal, we were there. We've seen the whole thing come to life from nothing to something bigger than you can ever imagine. We knew this was a changing moment for The Main in Montreal, and we were right about it.  Gearing up for the 3rd edition of the Arts Festival, this year they are stretching it to a mere 11-day multidisciplinary festival that will involve much more than what we usually expect. Not only are they...

    We're excited to present the first single from Club Cheval's debut album Discipline set to follow later this year. It's been a long wait since their last official release, and we definitely believe that this one is going to be for the books. The true original and unique sound of this french crew is prevalent in this debut single. Peep the art-video directed by Pierre-Edouard Joubert, so well-fitted with that pure R&B vocal we urge to love:   BONUS!! You have to listen to...

    I have made a promise to my boyfriend that I’m not allowed to talk about feminism for 24 hours. I will keep my promise not to talk about it, but that doesn’t mean I won’t write about it. Loopholes! FEMINISM FEMINISM FEMINISMOkay, now that it’s out of my system, I can get to the point of my article. Recently I’ve seen posts about Rupi Kaur, who wrote an open letter to Instagram. Her letter scorns Instagram for taking down a photo where a period leak on her grey pants is visible. They took the...

    This morning, you probably noticed a couple of celebrities' profile pictures and cover photos turned into a bright turquoise blue. It wasn't obvious until we noticed a bunch of them had the same profile pictures both on Facebook AND on Twitter. After looking into it, we found out that it all happened following Jay Z's first tweet in months:  "The Tides They Are-A Changing" #TIDALforALL — Mr. Carter (@S_C_) March 30, 2015 Tidal is a new streaming service that is launching in a couple of...
