Seattle based producer Keyboard Kid has won his fair share of plaudits since emerging in the last year.
Residing at the forefront of the emerging cloud rap scene, the producer has put out seven instrumental hip hop mixtapes in the last year earning the accolade of being deemed "one of modern hip hop's most influential producers" by FACT Magazine.
This mix, which he made in conjunction with Darwin, keeps up the high calibre of his productions moving seamlessly from low end spaced out beats to garage-esque sped up vocals and trancey keyboards

Fresh Espresso's New Album "Bossalona" will be out June 5th!!! The hard copies of the album will also be available in advance at Sasquatch Music Festival. So if you have a ticket make sure you pick yourself up a copy! This album has taken a lot of hard work. Half the album was recorded in downtown Seattle and the other Half was recorded in Niles Michigan overlooking the Saint Joseph river and nature galore. It's a triumphant, fun, sexy, epic record, but I think my father said it best when he noted that "It has a sub-plot telling of a struggle between self and celebrity." I think pops is right. Anyway, mark your calendars cuase Bossalona is coming soon! -P Smoov

New video from the sister from another mister, Katie Kate. Directed by Stephan Gray, this video shows the playful yet glamorous side of Kate. I truly love the collaboration between these two. Strong yet simple visuals compliment Kate's "rap" song perfectly.
33 songs & a 22 page digital booklet with original poetry & art by OCnotes. "Im droppin a solo record this year thats gonna change minds. In the meantime ive decided to release some material that ive had for quite some time. My intention for this particular project is to inspire artists. MCs, poets, wordsmiths, visual artists, musicians, and all livers of life. " DOWNLOAD HERE

Rest In Peace, Adam Yauch. Fuck cancer. It's ruining the lives of some of my favorite people ever, including those closest to me. Please don't just re-listen to the Beastie Boys today because he has passed. Keep their music constantly in your rotation. Embrace people's lives while they are still here and celebrate their art at all times.

Proof has been on fire lately with his mixtapes and edits as well as playing some very glorified gigs. Glad to see him doing so well and happy that he was able to quit his 9 to 5 to focus on his art full time. This mix was recorded live from Jet Set which is every Monday at Capitol Club. He does is usual bounce all over genres and decades to make this one work so well. From the Proofie himself: "Went over a few live mixes today and decided this one was good enough for public consumption! Hope y’all enjoy."
