#ISupport Volume 5

Heather Marie ended her 2015 with the fifth release of her popular series. The #ISupport Volume 5 release event took place on the 19th of December at a brand new location. Everyone gathered at The Uptowner to show love for the music scene tastemaker and the fresh project. S-Class reprised his role as host. He filled the night with laughter and charisma as he worked the room with his signature shades and backpack. DJ Smoke One wound up as the master behind the one’s and two’s.

Back in May, Milwaukee/New York artist Signif released a single called “The L Word (LikeLustLove).” It was produced by London producer Moteleola and appears on her current offering Friction. A review of the single can be read here. At the end of last month a video for the record surfaced. It is the very first visual to come about from the aforementioned album. Readers can lay their eyes on the flick after the break.

This time of year, many artists from all mediums are drawn to Austin, TX for the annual SXSW multi-media festival. For the first time in the festival’s history, Milwaukee was represented last night (3/12) and we here at The Illixer are very proud of all our sons and daughters who made the trip down south.

It’s seems of late that there are fewer and fewer old school Hip-Hop heads making a true difference in the game. Most have either moved on to other endeavors or sadly enough passed away before they could truly make a difference. Neither is the case for tonight’s subject, Lady Fusion. She began her life in the world of Hip-Hop in 1984, via being introduced by a cousin from NYC to the original pioneers: Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five, Melle Mel, Run DMC, and LL Cool J. From there, she started seeing the kids break dancing on the cardboard and all the DJs carrying around crates of vinyl to the house parties, including her own father. Let’s just say after that, with Lady Fusion it was love at first bass drop.
