G.O.M.D. – J. Cole (Video)

by Ambika - March 26, 2015

While I have been a faithful J. Cole fan since 2009’s humble “Lights Please,” I was slightly disappointed with his third studio album Forest Hills Drive, released late last year. However, a few takeaways on the track list included “Wet Dreamz”, “G.O.M.D.” and “Apparently”. “G.O.M.D.” earned a quite a few loop plays and a competitive […]

There’s something ethereal about Gnash’s delivery; I’m not sure if it’s his heartfelt vocals, or his earnest tales as a hopeful 22-year-old that captivates us – either way I’m feeling it.

Love You More – Ben Esser

by Vanessa - March 6, 2015

“Love You More” is a hell of a record. It oscillates and weaves in and out of many different musical territories within it’s nearly three-and-a-half-minute span and has left me more curious than ever about German producer, Ben Esser. It’s seductive energy loses no fuel throughout (very reminiscent of buzzing producer, Lido) and judging by […]
