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.

    Thanks to the website Instructables we can all get in touch with our Scottish side.  One of the website's users, PenfoldPlant, posted a Haggis recipe but with a little bit of a twist. He called it the Haggis pop.  This traditional Scotish meal can be made in nine steps all you'll need is the heart, lungs, liver and stomach of a sheep. Along with a few other things; some red onions, suet, oats and household spices.  In other words, what might be the most...

She had her lawyer hand in her completed list of 80 hours of community service, which she had to serve as punishment for her reckless driving incident in 2012. Lindsay Lohan got credit for 18 hours for doing meet and greets with fans after her London play Speed-The-Plow. There were 5 meet and greets listed for 3 hours each....

    At first listen to Chelsea Lankes, she is everything I expected it to be, smooth seductive vocals and perfectly poppy. Her latest tune is something you'd find me saying every Friday night when I was 23: "Down For Whatever". It sounds like Purity Ring meets Miley Cyrus - in the best possible way.   Lankes' voice is the glue that holds the song together in the midst of cloudy and whimsical tunes that swell in and out of focus while the lyrics represent a young feminine anthem of youth...

    First things first:  Ghostbusters is finally getting a reboot, but with WOMEN. That’s right. Bustin’ makes ladies feel good, too. The third movie with the original cast was scrapped, probably because Bill Murray is too busy being walking around cities and being weird. The all female lineup is Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Here's a brief introduction on their comedic/paranormal skills: Kristen Wiig Melissa McCarthy Kate McKinnon Leslie Jones Wasn't...
