While listening to my Jazz stations, cruising on my way back from Trade Joe’s, I heard a some very cool vibes that immediately caught my rhythm. As I glanced at my radio dashboard, long and behold it was the talented Christian Scott doing his thing. A couple of years back I was invited to see him perform live with his sextet in Manhattan and had the opportunity to interview him backstage. It’s always inspiring to see talented artist make there way from the “struggle” or what I’d call the “training ground” and make their way successfully out. If you’re not familiar with Mr. Scott’s tunes, I heavily advise you to check some of his tunes out.

I’ve been following Moruf for quite sometime and it’s been pretty impressive seeing his development as an artist. From our first introduction through our the NJ Klan fam (now well known & as the killer amazing duo Ho9099) , his performances at our Gotham Kafè/Kafè King & A.L.I.E.N. events to where he’s at now, has shown his ambition and his ability to make a stamp in his genre. His latest EP drop titled Loosies was an enjoyable vibe and even features guest production from our hommie Vesa. Keep up the good vibrations Mo.
Florida based artist Michael Vasquez is an artist that needs no introduction. If you know what’s up, you know what’s up. His ability to express subculture reality through paint mediums is mind blowing and I recently had the opportunity to build with him about his creative endeavors. A truly inspirational painter who expresses that his art is much deeper than the strokes laid out on canvas. Peep the interview after the jump.
