We received an email from Cassow this morning (and it isn’t even our birthday). As October continues, so does the LA-by-way-of-PDX emcee’s GODTOBER series of releases. A follow up to the last release MAjik, Cassow slows it down to take fans on a smooth Ride. Peep below. #OutHere
G Force returns with another Where Were You? Wednesdays remix (yeah we know….its Thursday) and this time its the Carl Thomas classic I Wish that gets the remix treatment.
The man also known as Calvin Valentine will release a new remix dropping every Wednesday on his Soundcloud page for the next six weeks, building up to the full LP Where Were You? which will be available for free download on his Bandcamp page Dec. 3rd.
We promise to (try to) be on time next week. #OutHere
Seattle’s Xperience is well known as a do it all, I’ve watched the Oldominion product rap, sing, and DJ at his own set , so I’m well aware of his talents, but this might be the first time I’ve seen him sing a full on song. No rap here, just clean vocals on the latest leak from the upcoming release of Heaven Noise recording’s All Your Friend’s Friends.
In related news, XP also let loose his #16BarChallenge over the weekend. Peep that HERE. You’re welcome.
Have you listened to PropaneLV’s new album, Suicide Squeeze yet?
Few Portland rap artists command the sort of attention that Propane seems to keep at his fingertips. Just this weekend, a colleague looking to downplay the rapper’s success said something to the effect of, ”He has like a million views, but does he do shows?”
Well let me tell you, Propane is actually approaching FIVE million YouTube views and he has a show TONIGHT downstairs at the Roseleand with Jon Bellion, in what makes for a rather sensical pairing of cinematically inclined crossover artists and a show that even casual fans should thoroughly enjoy.
Have you ever wanted to feel like you were on a acid trip while making fun of reality TV and imagining a undercover drug bust going down? Oh boy does Shabazz Palaces have a video for you. Some amazingly well produced visuals with a budget the size of which we don’t see too often on WOHM, but thats what you get when your signed to Sub Pop.
PDX transplant QZ Tha Leader gets the assist from angel-voiced 18 year old Briana Marion for his latest single, Blood Stained Chanel, and something tells me we’ll be hearing from her again. A moody video from Martin Van London frames the release well. Not turn up music, this is a song you listen to.
Portland laureate Hanif (fka Luck One) may be crashing at #FakeOswego while he’s in town for a few days, but I had to find this recent gem on my own via Kevin Nottingham. The following free-verse was recorded during a recent trip to the nation’s capital and captured by Radio Rahim. #BOARS #OutHere
