The Josh Craig Experience Live

Last Friday I got a special invite from the homie Josh Craig to check out a live studio performance of his band The Josh Craig Experience, it was a much-needed listen and could only wish there were more of these performances going around. After finding the studio and thinking if people get murdered (it was dark as hell) by those nearby woods, I took a sit in the dimly lit space and awaited the sounds. After a while the small group of invitees was gathered round the band with drinks n' smokes which made the atmosphere very chill, the band started playing (fantastic) and every one vibed out. The WorxLife homies were there in full effect as well, it was nice to see the local support all around. On to the sounds... man these guys played great. The horns blared, guitars awesome strang and Josh did his thing, it was great and must say the energy he brings to the band is excellent. It was a mix of Jazz, Hip-Hop and funk, how could they go wrong?! Well they didn't. The solos were clap n' yell worthy and drums were on point, it was as if the band had been together for many many years... it felt that comfortable and good. It was short lived due to me having to step out once it started really poppin off, but every single minute of the music was a welcomed neighbor to my ears.

Tom Chase & Deal The Villain as Power Co. Bros.

One of my favorite NJ beatsmiths Deal The Villain teamed up with Tom Chase of St. Joe Louis for a album that packs a sonic wallop and unavoidable Jersey griminess that we all love in Hip-Hop. All produced by DTV and one by The Jake it sounds like perfect music to cause havoc with and go bombing. I hear a 100 Yard Dash Mixtape track in there (a favorite) and Kung-Fu Treachery is a familiar tune as well, after that it's all new and golden! Always a treat when Deal releases some music and Chase comes along this time to add the cherry on top, check the album below and DL then bump till the frames fall down and the broom sticks hit the ceiling.
