AFROPUNK PREMIERE: Pegasus Warning's Latest EP 'PwEP2' Is A Glitched Out R&B Instant Classic #SoundCheck

It's been a minute since we last heard from Pegasus Warning, the glitched out R&B project of drummer Guillermo E. Brown. His latest, the simply titled PwEP2, dials back some of the self-cannabalizing deconstruction of his first record in favor of a more plastic-synths-in-a-hot-car kind of vibe. The analog synths skip and burble, grind and shriek in service of playing out the best hooks Pegasus Warning has committed to tape. The vocals are pushed further to the front, while the glitches and…See More

5 reasons why a Kaytranada-Andre 3000 collaboration would be perfection

Posted on September 27, 2016 at 2:30pm 0 Comments



AFROPUNK BK 2015 alum Kaytranada has been making major waves, and yet another one is crashing upon his fans. As if his 0.001% mixtape wasn’t enough, Kaytra posted a selfie on snapchat with the ever elusive god MC Andre 3000. Though this doesn’t mean definitively that a collaboration is coming, here are 5 reasons why we need this to…

AFROPUNK PREMIERE: LA-based hip-hop trio FRTNK plays love games in uber-danceable new track, ‘Let Go’

Posted on September 27, 2016 at 10:30am 0 Comments

We’re premiering a brand new track from L.A.-based hip-hop trio FRTNK (pronounced Fourteen K)—an alternative R&B-type of song, ‘Let Go’ is a loved up, mid-tempo song about hitting up your almost ex before chucking the deuces and moving on. Both playful and introspective, ‘Let Go’ isn’t emotionally desperate R&B or too cool for school “bitches and hoes” hip-hop. Instead, FRTNK plays it right on the line of vulnerability and confidence: “If I can’t reach you, I don’t… Continue

No doubt about it: Parlor Social's big band cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity" is a winner

Posted on September 26, 2016 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

What happens when you take an R&B classic, add a horn section, the Inspector Gadget theme, and an impeccable jazz arrangement? 7 minutes of glorious, big band greatness. Parlor Social and Teddy Riley connect to bring new life to Blackstreet’s jam “No Diggity,” a song that has been kept alive in the contemporary conscious by the likes of everyone from Chet Faker to Ed Sheeran. Ric'key Pageot’s arrangement, buoyed by Teddy and lead vocalist Dessy Di Lauro’s alto, bring…

NEW MUSIC: R&B/Neo-soul vets Cody ChesnuTT and Raphael Saadiq contemplate violence against black bodies & childhood innocence in “Bullets In The Streets And Blood” visual

Posted on September 26, 2016 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

As the summer comes to a close, we’re reminded of how fortunate we are to have made it to see the other side. In a world where intra-community and police violence are claiming lives at astonishing rates, life, as always, should be something we’re thankful for. Cody ChesnuTT’s new song “Bullets In The Streets And Blood,” sings of the innocence of the children who have to bare witness to the violence and hope for the future our communities and country. The anthemic single…

Now sure how the song review selection works? However here is a link to our latest release "It Could Have Been Me". It is dedicated to the memory of Trayvon, Eric, Michael and Oscar, and our contribution to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Thanks

Thanks for the past love for Warrior. Here is a link for the new single "What Did I Do?". It's about the erosion of a relationship unbeknownst to you. You know when your brother, sister, friend or lover decides that something you did was so bad that they just cut off your relationship?
