untitled (27)

As promised, NYC Hip-hop artist Orrin liberates another unreleased song from his catalog as he plans to do once a week until his birthday, March 2nd. Today, Orrin releases Langston Hughes, a song from the archived project titled Sean Mulligan. The compilation was originally released last May, containing songs from when the artist was sixteen and on. The discordant tape was taken down weeks after its release, instead focusing on the creation of his debut Nocturnal. Download Langston Hughes here

“It’s memory without exegesis. It’s drama without melodrama. It’s hip-hop.”

-Respect Magazine

“Nocturnal is experimental, and focuses on creating lush soundscapes that mesh with the unique emotion of each song.”

-Skope Magazine

“Check out this new track from a very new, young artist named Orrin. Think SpaceGhostPurrp meets The Weeknd.”

Woodbridge, VA rap artist PHZ-Sicks (pronounced ‘physics’) presents the John Ledbetter-directed music video for “Black Women”, the Best Kept Secret-produced song from The Moment, his new album featuring Detroit rapper/singer Scolla, singer Alison Carney, DMV rapper Lyriciss and fellow Triple S crew member Seanny Greggs as well as production from Stompboxx Music, Epik the Dawn, Kriss Liss and Kajmir Royale. PHZ was a 2011 DMV Best VA Male Rap Artist nominee, has opened for Wale and J. Cole, and 2DopeBoyz gave The Moment honorable mention for best mixtapes in 2013. “In this video, I wanted to capture the beauty, power, and love that’s embodied in black women,” says PHZ-Sicks. “For that I opted to not be in the video and let the camera capture the message of the song as well as the genuine beauty inside and out for women of color.” Click here to watch a video documenting the making of The Moment, and visit PHZ-Sick’s Bandcamp page to purchase a personally signed and messaged CD copy.

Queens, NYC rapper Buddy Lofton presents “Love Potion”, his new single produced by Los Angeles producer CUSCINO. The two began working together after Buddy played the lead role in A Smile, which CUSCINO scored. “‘Love Potion’ came about as a result of the film itself, and my process while scoring it,” CUSCINO said. “Writer/Director Matthew Torchon paired me with Lofton to create something unique. What resulted was exactly that: a record that channels the spirit of the film, capturing a young man’s search for happiness within a fierce urban landscape and his own personal trappings.” Describing his style, Buddy says “We are all under the influence of something the world has to offer. It’s not just about drugs or alcohol; it’s about media outlets, religion, love, family and failures. Something has influenced you to become the person you are this very moment, and I’m always expanding upon this idea through my music – capturing certain moments, thoughts and vices from my life that have influenced me to be who I am today.” Buddy’s last release was the full-length Under The Influence (click to listen), and CUSCINO’s was the Eternality EP (click to listen).
