FEATURE: Elayna Madden's 'Broken Heart Syndrome' Is a Perfect Indie Breakup Record #SoundCheck

When I got to Internationalist Books, a small radical infoshop in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, I found a small room. A few rows of folding chairs were set up. I was on tour and had a show fall through. “Call Elayna Madden,” my friend Greg from Speaker For The Dead told me. “They'll help you figure something out.” Elayna sat quietly on a couch.

Posted on September 17, 2014 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

“Pula, pula, na, na, ke tla gola leng.” The ethereal club banger “My Body” by Kat Kai Kol-Kes and her band Chasing Jakyb is an ode to the physical meeting of human body and rain. Kat is from Botswana, a country made up of 85 percent desert. Unsurprisingly, rain and water take on a mystical quality as a recurring motif and linguistic reference in the nation's culture.

Born in New York and raised in South Florida, No Emotion Gold Mask is redefining what it means to be a modern hip-hop artist while paying homage to old-school greats like Wu Tang. With an authentic flow full of instant classic punch lines, this comedian and rap artist is making his own lane. Refusing to be play the role of the stereotypical rapper, NoEmotion GoldMask has opened the minds of fans everywhere with his thought-provoking and often hilarious one-liners. As a self-made underground favorite, NoEmotion GoldMask has an international cult following with fans of all ages from all over the world, including the NoEmotion Skate Crew and Broken Emotion, a dance crew. NoEmotion GoldMask quickly rose through the ranks of Miami's underground rap scene to be one of the most recognizable entertainers out, proving that unsigned hype still exists. Never caught without his signature gold mask, which die-hard fans can purchase signed from his online store, NoEmotion GoldMask is one of the most eclectic, provocative, and thought-provoking entertainers to come on the American rap scene - and he's just getting started. Follow him on Twitter @noemotion954. Watch his videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/NoEmotion954. Like NoEmotion's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NoEmotionGoldMask.
