Soundset 2018 Lineup Revealed!

The lineup for Soundset 2018 is here!   Rhymesayers bring you one of the dopest hip hop music festivals around.  May 27th 2018 the Minnesota State Fairgrounds host a day long event that follows last year's 10th anniversary.  Attendance last year was clocked in at about 35,000 and this year's lineup promises to be just as big if not bigger.  Soundset often defies predictions and patterns with the artists they book, and this year is no different, with artists like Logic and Migos holding it down with Rhymesayers legends Atmosphere, and long time heroes like the Wu-Tang Clan (celebrating the 25th anniversary of Enter the 36 Chambers), Hieroglyphics, and Erykah Badu.

Get your tickets here, they go on sale March 2nd at 12 pm EST.


'At Least The Sky Is Blue' SSION ft. Ariel Pink

SSION and Ariel Pink prove with one song that they've got the sort of collaborative sound that could certainly power an entire album.  For now we'll have to settle for the brilliant single 'At Least The Sky Is Blue'.  The single follows 'Comeback', the track released in late 2017, and comes with the announcement of a 15 date tour with Beth Ditto as well.  As 'Comeback' indicated SSION seems to be preparing to do it real big in 2018.  We can't wait.  Watch for the video for 'At Least The Sky Is Blue' out later this month with a cameo from Ariel Pink.

Sweatson Klank: 'Like I Need You'

FriendsOfFriends released the new EP from Los Angeles producer Sweatson Klank.  Like I Need You is a collection of his signature blend of hip hop, r & b and future bass elements in four songs that you're probably going to love.  With as varied a career as Sweatson Klank (real name Thomas Wilson) has had, it's no surprise he brings such range to an EP like this.  You can listen to Like I Need You below and get it here!


Classixx remix Lawrence Rothman's 'Wolves Still Cry'

Lawrence Rothman is truly one of the most brilliant talents in music today, and yet many music lovers have yet to discover that magic.  Rothman is a fascinating artist, involved in all aspects of the creation and release of the music, using alter ego's throughout his work, and continually challenging expectations and the status quo for modern musicians.  Classixx released a remix of 'Wolves Still Cry' from Rothman's debut album The Book Of Law, and it's simply beautiful.  While tailored for the dance floor, this song remains mellow, and retains a vibrant beauty that cannot be found everywhere.  For those who know this is another example of Rothman's powerful music, for those who don't this is a perfect place to discover such an exciting artist.
