Like a lot of our peers feel, I believe this project is long overdue. Now that he has graduated college and matured into a young adult, I'm glad that he was able to finally put together an album that our friends and the rest of the world can enjoy. As he tells it:
Chill Factor was my "Finally" project. I just wanted to make a complete project where I was the one putting the pieces together, finally. I'd always wanted to flow on some 90's instrumentals about a few brief stories in my life. Nothing too major cause of the chill/relaxed vibe I wanted to incorporate. I chose all of the instrumentals, learned how to mix my vocals, and had a lot of fun making the project.Chill Factor has a perfect combination of lyrical whit, narrative voice, and a healthy introspective balance of seriousness and humor. The album definitely shows promise, great work, congratulations homie.
Chillwave never gets the support it deserves. In a time when everyone wants to turn in a general upward direction, it's fantastic to hear a track devoid of heavy hi-hats and nonsensical rhymes. Fortunately for us, Brooklyn's very own Vulkan the Krusader has come through with that good stuff on his latest track "Echo Chamber". Described as the struggle between a devoted man and his newly discovered promiscuous girlfriend, the light etherial Yakamoto Kotzuga produced song relies heavily on sound storytelling and elements to get the message across. "Echo Chamber" is the third title from Vulkan's upcoming project, VX-13: Do You Remember Love, and will be released for your listening pleasure on Valentine's Day.I've witnessed Vulkan progress as an artist since before the Lucy Naive mixtape dropped and he beheld a vision back then for his music that I believe is now becoming actualized. The VX-13: Do you Remember Love is shaping up to be a great release. Get ready for V-Day.

From the moment I first saw this high octane video for 'Don't Mind Me' off of Joe Fnkoo's -aka Joe Cool- Drivers Ed mixtape I knew I had to hear more. I dug a little deeper and I'm glad I did, it turns out Joe produced this joint himself. He merged a Dr. Dre sample with rolling high hats and a slick flow to create a real banger and his "mixtape" only gets better. Consisting of 10 original joints calling Drivers Ed a mixtape does a real disservice to the work Joe put into it. After running through the album a few times it's hard to drop Joe Fnkoo into any one category. He's like one part Andre 3000 one part Kendrick Lamar sprinkled with a NoLa state of mind. Watch for more of this dudes music in 2014.

Aaron Cohen from the I.C.K (Inner City Kids) release his latest visual featuring Fools Gold counterpart Grande Marshall. As they all huddle around fiery trash cash and brave the cold winter that is New York city as their backdrop to this murky track.

Brooklyn based MeLo-X decided to take to his Soundcloud and bless us with a new EP. It features remixes off of Beyonce's latest tidal wave of an album. MeLo-X flexes his diversity by spanning several genres; he has a knack for riding the borders between R&B and down-tempo electronic. Some stand out tracks for me are the Trap sprinkled "Ghost In The Sheet" and choppy Neo-Soul "Rock-It".
Original song's that garner as much attention as these set the bar high. Remixing them can be a risky venture. I really think MeLo-X nailed it. He matched if not added to the general vibe and sexiness these tracks already permeated. Picturing Beyonce riding wood grain on a surfbort just got something serious.
Party Supplies has always been good peoples. He recently release a project on Fools Gold, it's now a band of two people if you didn't know. This video has one of the funniest people in NY, the big fat jew if you never heard of him, please refer to google.

El-P is kinda like a big bro to me, one with a great sense of humor and satire that he infuses with great imagery in his videos. This is like a live action Christmas card on your computer, also Killer Mike proves there's a black Santa. Press play if you never believed in Santa though.
