Back in 2008 I first came upon the music of an artist who, a year later would play a large role in blocSonic’s transition to a full-fledged netlabel with it’s own original releases along side it’s netBloc series. That artist, Just Plain Ant made his first appearance on “netBloc Vol. 17: Refined Excursions For The Discriminating Listener” with his incredible “Revolution (Featuring Precise)” and it’s throw-back classic hip-hop vibe. That introduction to the music of the Richmond,...

It was August 2013 when we were last treated to an LP by Brooklyn Master of Ceremonies BADLUCK . Well, consider that dry spell over… LUCK is back and you had better be ready… he’s not playing. Eternity Project is the fourth installment of his independently released Rocket Science series on which he partners with long-time collaborator, the master producer James Halton PKA Uh-Oh. The album is also the first of three planned releases set to drop over the next three months on which Luck...

If you enjoyed, Neon Jesus Wins The World Cup , last week’s single that Electric Mirrors released with us, then you’re definitely going to be thrilled to hear this great new album (EM’s debut long player for blocSonic). If, for some reason, you missed the single, be sure to check it out , as well. Ten songs deep, moody and incredibly addictive, UFO Stories is, in my opinion, EM’s best album yet. Truly a tour de force in electropop songwriting. This is the stuff that music junkies dream...

In the early 80s, while in my teens, I first heard hip-hop music and it was for me… there was simply something about it that spoke to me. It was the future. It was exciting and fresh. A musical genre in its infancy that was finding its way… learning who it was. It grew up over the years… it evolved… still learning about itself. It had a chance to sell out and took it. It embraced the good times and seemed to forget about the important things in life. Eventually it was even used and...

With rappers claiming the ridiculous claim of “King of NY” over incredibly weak beats and with talent that’s merely luke warm, it’s refreshing to hear a Brooklyn MC who IS actually nice on the mic. Partnered with a group of producers who manage to compliment his lyrical delivery, BADLUCK brings you his latest project, “Johnny Cool”… an album that once again manages to walk that fine line between CLASSIC boom bap and modern flavor. A true treat for hip-hop heads to hear! Thanks...

Perhaps because of that… or in spite of it… the scene is quite diverse… country, folk, hip-hop, jazz, punk, rock, metal… you name it… someone’s creating it. This new release...

A little over ten years ago, in 2002, I began working for SLAMjamz, the label run by Public Enemy’s Chuck D . I began by designing cover art for their digital single series. Among those digital singles were seven designed for Connecticut avante-garde power pop group, The Scallions , consisting of members Mike and Shawn Franklin . That eventually lead to me designing their SLAMjamz debut album “Agony Through Ceremony” in 2006. A year later I launched blocSonic and slowly molded it into the...

Are you ready to rock? I hope you are because today I’m excited to release the powerful debut EP, “Gryaznyj albom”/“The Dirty Album”, by the Russian band Vpopolam. They call their sound “anti-glamorous chanson-core”, a blend of funk, rock & grooves. At times the sound is reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers and at other times, the sound’s hard to pin down. There’s one thing about it that’s very easy to pin down… these guys know how to make absolutely infectious music....

You could say that Deadly Combo’s new album “Unattainable” has been a lifetime in the making. RM aka Bigg-M and his younger brother CM aka Creative have long been rocking the mic, individually, yet rarely have they been able to do so together. Now, after many years of trying to make a full-length project happen, they’ve finally been able to it happen… and it is most definitely worth the wait! They’ve pulled together a host of MCs and producers for it and everyone brought their...

Of course we didn’t invent the compilation! Duh! No really! We didn’t… seriously! Why do you doubt me? Even though we didn’t invent them it doesn’t mean we didn’t perfect them… so here’s another perfect compilation for your soul to absorb via your ear canals. A collection of 11 tracks plus one sampler. That’s two bonus tracks on top of the standard 10 track line-up! Whoa! Crazy! I loved the Jay Slim release so much that I simply couldn’t contain myself to only one track....

Hello again everyone. After a month off, I was eager to unleash volume 9 to the world. As the title suggests, it's focused on "lo-fi" offerings that the world of net audio has to offer. Lo-fi as a description for music is kind of vague and can include many genres. Personally, I define lo-fi as any music without slick production – music that can contain distorted samples or distortion itself applied to any number of song elements. In fact, distortion becomes an advantage in the...

With his debut full-length album, Viktor wanted to expand his sound a bit beyond the sound that Dusted Wax focuses on, so he followed in the footsteps of his buddy, Cutside , and came to blocSonic. Ten songs deep, Triumph of Unconscious is a tightly focused album with a big sound. With the global...

Anniversaries are always a good way to demarcate your progress or development, whatever it is that you want to keep track of. For a creative artist, anniversaries can be especially important. In this day and age when to be one, it means that, unless you’re one of the few who the mainstream deem marketable, you’re more than likely doing so without the expectation of monetary gain… mostly for the love of the art. Ten years as a completely independent artist is one hell of a feat and Tha...

If I were to compare a Pot-C album to anything, it might be a Dr. Demento show for hip-hop heads. With his solo joints, he manages to take this hip-hop thing to places that only someone like Kool Keith might have travelled to before… far off places that may be funny to a few, confusing to some and maybe even offensive to others. The beauty of hip-hop is that it’s able to be shaped and molded into so many guises. This particular hip-hop is far out on some beer drenched and polyester clothed...

Hip-hop is an incredibly diverse musical genre that has a bad reputation no thanks to the American mainstream branch of it. People who write-off hip-hop as idiotic, materialistic, violent or misogynist are only getting a small slice of what it’s about. Since hip-hop has become international there are a wide array of ideas about what hip-hop should be today in 2009 and beyond. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the music will gladly give you their opinion about what “real” hip-hop is. Truth be...
