we’re seeing red! promnite’s absolutely mental snake charmer ep gets the physical edition it deserves. this ain’t no soundcloud special — snake charmer is a four-track dive into life itself, showcasing the collaborative songwriting chops, elevated sound design and alwaysfunky approach that makes promnite one of the most exciting young producers in the game. this cali-via-nyc producer (and co-founder of la’s beloved athletixx dj collective) eschews run-of-the mill bangers for the bittersweet turn up of “gunsmoke,” featuring denzel curry, nell, j.k. the reaper and twelve’len, and short-story worthy clubland tales on “ride around” with adam vida. meanwhile, prom’ssmooth stepper “call me” with mark johns nuzzles up against the space-age trunk rattle of “cruise’n usa,” featuring ladonnis. promnite is bringing the love back to club music. for all their futuristic thump and sonic precision, the tracks on his snake charmer ep are wonderfully, messily human.
nick hook is nyc’s waviest resident: an in-demand collaborator, producer extraordinaire, and all around provider of vibes who’s lent his touch to projects from run the jewels, young thug, and countless others, all while building a creative community around his studio, thespacepit, in greenpoint. now the redheaded kingpin steps forward with his relationships lp on fool’s gold, a 16 track album of collaborations that are unconventional, unexpected and all-the-way live (literally: each song was recorded in-person with nick behind the boards, a refreshing move in the email verse era).
featuring a festival-worthy lineup of new school rap upstarts (21 savage, novelist, ilovemakonnen) and fellow beat radicals (prefuse 73, hudson mohawke, the late dj rashad), relationships isn’t just the world’s greatest party guestlist, but a chronicle of nick’s year long, after-midnight vision quest—the sound of a producer breaking through the chrysalis, killing the ego, and raising the bar. put your phone down and dive in.

black atlass is quite literally the only artist on earth to soundtrack louis vuitton and yves saint laurent ads while featuring on action bronson songs. this diverse appeal is a testament to the captivating voice of alex fleming, the young singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and who created black atlass as a vehicle for his unique vocals, heart on-sleeve lyrics and experimental production techniques. following the well-received paris single and young bloods ep (the latter a personal favorite of visionary director woodkid, who created mind-bending visuals for single jewels featuring fleming and supermodel anja rubik) and the three singles released over the past year, haunted paradise, tonight, and island love, black atlass is finally ready to drop his full-length debut.
in the most cosmic sense of the word, rome fortune is atlanta’s newest star. green-bearded and crop-topped, 6’5” in cowboy boots, he takes the stage like an eclipse and flips straighforward bars into lunar poetry. but even with such otherworldly swagger, rome’s music connects with fans because of how powerfully (and sometimes painfully) human it really is. jerome raheem fortune is the true story of this man who fell to earth.
