Le1f – “Sup”
Le1f (aka Khalif Diouf) is a New York-based musician with an impressive arsenal of talents. Dancer-turned-rapper/producer, Diouf manages to balance avant-garde style with a keenness for popular aesthetic. “Sup” is featured on his recently released “Hey” EP, which is certain to get some heavy rotation on our summer playlist.
The Faint – “Evil Voices”
2014 seems to be the year of the comeback album from some of our favorite alternative acts who rose to prominence in the 90s and early 00s.

Dominique Young Unique – “Throw It Down”
Dominique Young Unique is a former model and the latest lyrical powerhouse to hit the music scene. “Throw It Down” gets our blood flowing and legs moving. We’re not doctors but we’re pretty sure just listening to this song has cardiovascular benefits. Also let’s all be sure to applaud the sheer skill of her 2-man twerking crew!
For David Miller and David Riley, the new DJ duo known as Deep Velvet hitting the RVA-scene, the city is serving as a make shift “Small Apple” for their native NYC vibes. And to no surprise, their music is as warm and sensual as their name sounds. Miller and Riley recently put out a new [...]September 15, 2016
