No Regular Play perform (LIVE) at Baby’s All Right 09.30

What immediately comes through in a cursory survey of No Regular Play’s catalogue is a love for the jazz and hip-hop influences the DJ/production duo proudly claim. A Tribe Called Quest and Miles Davis can clearly be heard as influences, in deconstructed form, throughout the group’s single “Hear You Sing.” In fact, Rudists' remix of “Hear You Sing” brings the connection to the forefront of the track. The results are undeniable. No Regular Play’s melding of nu-disco, house, R&B, and jazz creates something soulful and fresh. No Regular Play will be performing a live set at Baby's All Right on September 30. -juan leon

Discwoman Collective's Bearcat plays Fringe Arts 09.22

Discwoman collective artist Bearcat's wild, aggressive sampling of divergent styles and rhythms (from dembow to spoken word) in her work as producer and DJ is a mode of expression so potent and unique it feels like a sonic diaspora. As a DJ, and like all great djs, her mixes aren't simply beats mixed into other beats with the aim of getting asses on the dance floor. Rather, Bearcat expertly uses transitions and rhythms to achieve a fierce personal expression. The moment on her Chromat FW16 Runway Mix when a sample of a woman's voice continues to repeat "a girl's success...lies between her legs" while a pounding backbeat counters in the background is a thrilling example of how Bearcat uses beats to subvert, to provoke thought, and to transcend. She plays at Fringe Arts in Philly on September 22. -juan leon


New Nymphaea EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Proceeds from Abode of the Merciful, the new release from Marit Rose Stafstrom, a.k.a. Nymphaea, is ticketed to a handful of causes, aimed at supporting those in need, which includes Houston Autonomous Relief, Philly For REAL Justice, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and friends affected by the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. An air of cautious mystery percolates on her latest EP, as flashlights of synth and hushed vocals shine in the dimly lit corners. Propelled forward by the desire of discovery and alluring percussive beats, one keeps marching/dancing ahead. It’s an enchanting, sonic escape.

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Pool Radio

The breezy, seductive synth-pop of this month’s Featured Artist(s) Poll winners Pool Radio is evident when spinning their new release Pool II. Unguarded, emotive intimacy is interlaced with inherent danceability, akin to fellow Philly natives Work Drugs. Founding members Justin Brady and Jonny Hart have been making music together since junior high, and we had a chance to catch up with Brady to dive a little deeper into the history, likes and dislikes of Pool Radio, which you can check out HERE.
