Milwaukee superstar Klassik finally brought his seasonal themed EP venture full circle with a release of the Seasons LP last month. The project captures the essence of the EPs by taking things a step further than just enveloping the listener in the auditory version of certain weather types.

The fellas of RAGELIFE (P/1, ¡Oye!, & DJ *hitmayng) finally released their self-titled debut LP last month.

The concept of the album stems from the fellas experiences as minority students at the University Of Wisconsin (Madison). Particularly the process of trying to balance: education, socializing in a new territory, developing their music careers, and raging. Said concept was summarized as follows: “The project takes the listener through the fantasies of stardom while dealing with the stark realities of the pursuit of education and happiness in this wonderland of sound and RAGE.” (Press Release) / Sounds like a very intriguing musical journey. Dive into the adventure after the break.
