Illogic & Blockhead - Poster Boy

Hip hop is essentially poetry over repetative music; however not all rappers are poets.  Enter Illogic, an MC from Columbus Ohio who cut his teeth coming up as a friend of the Definitive Jux camp. More a master of the English language than rapper, Illogic is a true poet weaving words and messages in to a multi-syllable complex flow that takes at least three listens to fully understand. In 2012 he teamed up with prolific producer Blockhead, best known for his early collaboration with Aesop Rock, and has created yet another example of true wordsmith.

Pui Pui Beat Tape (Vol. 1)

 

Producer Kenlo Craqnuques keeps up a crazy pace of musical releases. Prolific is his catalog, many folks compare him to a Madlib, the orginal beat conducta. It's exciting to see “Forêt Boréale Mixte” finally come out, because he's blessed listeners with a taste of what's to come on the website Music is My Sanctuary's MIMS Radio Show.

This is his first solo project from him since 2012 “Turquoise“. Enjoy.

Jason Myles Goss - The Contender

All Photos By Mike Sosin

Considering Jason Myles Goss' Radio Dial has been on such heavy rotation for me in the last few months, it's almost criminal that I've waited this long to feature him. In my defense, I was waiting for the video for the stand-out track "Black Lights." Premiering a couple weeks back on Paste, the gritty street-fighting tale was actually shot here in Chicago. 

Radio Dial, which was released last summer is slowly gaining steam as more people continue to discover the New York based singer-songwriter. The album certainly benefits from the contribution of several members of Josh Ritter's band, but it's Goss' writing and straightforward, earnest vocals that steal the show. His folk leaning pop channels greats like Mark Knopfler at times.  

I had the very distinct pleasure to spend some time with Jason recently when he opened up for Edie Carey at SPACE. Goss was lucky to be there, having battled the last snowstorm of the year to barely make the gig. Ever the professional, he put on a performance worthy of a headliner. If you miss his Uncommon Ground show on 6/30, chances are you're going to see him in a much less intimate setting upon his next visit. Goss is battling his way through the ranks towards that championship belt.

Photo: Lee Fields & The Expressions, Lady - Lincoln Hall 3/28/13

All Photos by Mike Sosin

Lee Fields was having a rough time on Friday night at Lincoln Hall. 20 minutes into his performance, his voice began to leave him. After several attempts to keep the show going, he announced that he needed to take a break and then never returned. Despite the brevity of his performance, he still wowed the crowd. His departure from the stage left fans feeling sympathetic rather than angry. Here's hoping he's on the mend so he can once again perform with the zeal we've become accustomed to.
