Bizarre – “Rufus” (Album Review)

This is the 4th studio album from Detroit rapper Bizarre, who is widely known for being a member of the now defunct D12. He was one of the first members of the group to already have an established solo career, as his 1998 EP Attack of the Weirdos as well as his 2005 debut album Hannicap Circus are hometown classics in my eyes. Last time we heard from him in a full-length capacity was in 2010 with Friday Night at St. Andrews but after years of focusing on mixtapes & more recently the duo L.A.R.S...

Why Buying Music On Physical Media (CDs, Vinyl) Is Growing

Services like Spotify and Apple Music can’t just upload whatever music they’d like. Legal disputes, sample clearance issues — when permission can’t be obtained for the use of part of a song in a new song — and rights-holders withholding music can all get in the way of music being available on your streaming platform of choice. And that can make the music even more difficult and more expensive to get your hands on physically. – The Conversation

L7 is what the Loop Station would be like as an iOS app, not hardware – and now it’s just $4

For years, musicians have asked for software to do what the BOSS RC-505 Loop Sta­tion does, and make looping easy. The Audiokit L7 does just that. Okay, before this sounds like it’s an emulation of the RC-505 with some fake pedals and knobs and such, don’t worry – they didn’t do that. Coming from the makers of iOS sound framework Audiokit, the L7 has the sort of simple, standard visual interface you’d expect from an app, not hardware. So you get high-contrast visuals and waveforms and all tha...

Anne Midgette: The Exit Interview

“I felt like it was really time to move on. I could see myself doing the same thing for the next 20 years and I don’t want that. … Music has never been my only interest and it’s always bemused me a little bit that I ended up as a classical music critic.” – Perfect Sound Forever

J-Boog just made his Love & Hip-Hop reunion debut and let’s just say he fit right in. Though he mostly stayed out of the chaos while A1 Bentley, Lyrica, their mamas, and other cast members went at it, he didn’t hold back when it was time to discuss the hot-topic relationship between fellow B2K bandmate Fizz and Apryl Jones/other B2K bandmate’s baby mama. Boog repeatedly stated that he didn’t like getting in the middle of other people’s relationships, but he did admit that he would not like it if...
