    Premiering on blog site EARMILK, 'MOON EP' could be considered Young IICE's major debut. Available for streaming via SoundCloud, Apple Music, and Spotify, exclusively produced by J'Von, and released on the ambiguous label empty planet (J'Von's 'Potato'), 'MOON EP' has a long line of press for such a short yet sweet love story. No longer sounding like a carbon copy of Mac Miller, Young IICE's tunes have come into harmony and thanks to J'Von's Midas touch behind the boards 'MOON EP' shines bright.

  3. Kids Food for Jane and Jeff
    by Jowin
    00:00/00:00
    Time (Jeff's Dilemma) Time (Jeff's Dilemma)
    This project is nothing like I have seen or heard from a music artist. A visual EP that touches on heavy themes lightheartedly and crafted intricately in every medium, 'Kids Food for Jane and Jeff' is a diamond: clean (Jowin does not curse), clear (videos are in high definition), and concise (a total runtime of ten minutes). Jowin is an artist's artist and a man of the people whose pure imagination and dedication to conveying that vision makes 'Kids Food for Jane and Jeff' seem ethereal in 2017.
  4. MAGNETIC
    by Curbside Jones
    00:00/00:00
    LA /92/ LA /92/
    'MAGNETIC' is for black people; however, it is not meant to be polarizing. Appropriately released during Black History Month Curbside Jones dons the hat of disk jockey one time for the one time. Intertwined within samples signature to Curbside Jones' production 'MAGNETIC' contains interviews, skits, media, and "conscious rap" a term Curbside Jones has said seems redundant to him. The opening track will sound familiar to anyone who follows Curbside Jones' music and remain fresh for new listeners.
  5. Songs Made While High
    by Like
    00:00/00:00
    Diamond Diamond
    After dropping 'Emeralds' my personal favorite beat tape of 2016 in March, the Pac Div cofounder comes clutch with his solo rapping debut just in time for the fourth quarter. Like presents 'Songs Made While High' with minimal help behind-the-scenes and only a couple of features. This effort may have been produced, written, and mixed while high but the emcee formerly known as Likewise rhymes very much down to earth. This is a true debut done within Like's own domain and all are cordially invited.
  6. potato
    by J'Von
    00:00/00:00
    lil' dirt puppy lil' dirt puppy
    Don't judge this 'Potato' based on it's skin because J'Von is at his best when we listen. Judging by the cover anyone could see that inspiration is drawn from Pendleton Ward but by bumping "Gummi Bears" we can hear that J'Von is also influenced by MF DOOM. Far from sounding like a potato chip off of Tyler, the Creator's 'Wolf', J'Von's "mini quest" is a stroll down memory lane; and while most of the EP is spent reminiscing J'Von remains forever present on tracks in almost every imaginable facet.
  7. FaceTimeWithGod 1.8
    by Curbside Jones
    00:00/00:00
    Released on the heels of his passion project 'Don't Forget to Smile :3' and the "lost" beat tape 'Tap Water Vol. 1', "FaceTimeWithGod 1.8" is Curbside Jones' single best effort this year thus far. Premiering on blog site Ovrld this second update of the original song has the Austin auteur out to best himself lyrically and musically while attempting to contact his Maker in order to ultimately better their relationship. Curbside Jones' third attempt at a FaceTime session is most definitely a charm.
  8. Intervals EP
    by Young IICE
    00:00/00:00
    moola moola
    Just like the carrousel on the cover, 'Intervals EP' is purely ups-and-downs and Young IICE is taking listeners along for the ride. "Love My Drugs" is a somber ode to drug-induced highs while the second half of the track is very sobering. Seattle wunderkind J'Von produces both "Lonely Nights" and "They Say I Changed"; the former is the single dedicated to intimate hook-ups while the latter is the post-breakup update. "Moola" may be about dirty money but Young IICE can even make that sound clean.
  9. Digital Boogie Man
    by Curbside Jones
    00:00/00:00
    Reset_ Reset_
    "I'm a blatant idiocentric" raves Curbside Jones on the opening track. Hardly braggadocious, it serves as a fair warning for those presently unaware for what the Digital Boogie Man has in store for them. Humanity's technological advancements manifesting into something (or someone?!) nightmarish is the backdrop to this series' first installment which showcases a sonically maturing Curbside Jones struggle with trying to maintain an analog mentality before handing control over to his digital vices.
  10. no motions EP
    by J'Von
    00:00/00:00
    spirit llamas spirit llamas
    I cannot keep up with what he is saying: that was my initial reaction to J'Von. However, his rapid fire delivery did not kill my interest in wanting to comprehend his lyrics. What J'Von accomplishes in one verse takes multiple listens to digest entirely. It is no surprise why this EP is titled 'No Motions': it is chockfull of wordplay and thick with extended metaphors that will leave a listener with no choice but to press rewind. "Catman" is the Quasimoto to J'Von's Madlib: his internal hypeman.
  11. The Power Of 3
    by Garrott Odom
    00:00/00:00
    King Torta King Torta
    "Technicolor", "Dolo", and "Broadview" are proof that Garrott Odom has what it takes to be a bonafide hitmaker. As I make it a point not to judge his album solely based off of the singles do not skip the fearless and sample-driven "Mt. Zion Blvd". Special acknowledgment to executive producer Dijon Stylez who also provides production for all but one of the songs: the album should probably be titled 'The Power Of 2'! I may have been late to the party but upon my arrival it is still in full effect.
  12. The GO Demo
    by Garrott Odom
    00:00/00:00
    Fuchsia Featuring Levi Watson Fuchsia Featuring Levi Watson
    Back in the day record labels would release extended-plays (EP's) to see if their target audience would support a particular project, a new artist, or an established artist experimenting with a new sound. Surprisingly 'The GO Demo' comes across as all three. Definitely not a novice behind the mic Garrott Odom reveals his true identity and asserts himself as an MC that has fun but although he is hailing from "Jurassic Park" he did not come to play. This EP is the (re)introduction of Garrott Odom.
  13. Failed Utopia: Reanalyzed
    by Almost Always
    00:00/00:00
    Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks (Round 2) Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks (Round 2)
    I am a sucker for both concept albums and artist collaborations that span an entire project and I get a healthy dose of both from Almost Always: Curbside Jones' songwriting and rapping while Corey Arnell handles all of the production. Curbside Jones usually relies on his own beats but his tag team with Corey is complimentary. Special mention to the SPZRKT feature! The talent showcased on 'Failed Utopia: Reanalyzed' is something someone whom is unfamiliar will almost always regret missing out on.
  14. The Cherry Blossom Effect: Trance(End) Edition

    Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks
    The first Curbside Jones project I ever heard. A rerelease of a project completed in 2011, I was ashamed I had gone so long without listening to this. The themes that shine throughout this project and throughout all of Curbside Jones' discography make it obvious that I would have became a fan sooner rather than later. Look past the sakura pedals on the cover, FGC-influenced song titles, and anime dialogue and give 'The Cherry Blossom Effect: Trance(End) Edition' your full undivided appreciation.
