Skizzy Mars – Together

September 20th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

 Skizzy Mars   TogetherIn honor of hitting 100,000 views on a his video “Douchebag“, Skizzy Mars released a hot new track for his fans. With an electro guitar riff beat…of course, Skizzy kills it. Nothing new about that. Some say he’s the future of hip-hop, and if thats true, then I think the future of hip=hop looks bright. I’m looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.

Hidden Gem: Skizzy Mars *alternative rap

 Hidden Gem: Skizzy Mars *alternative rapManhattan, NYC rapper Skizzy Mars is an interesting act. As an alternative rap artist, he brings a unique lyrical flow with laid back almost indie sounding instrumentals. Kind of reminds me of OnCue and Macklemore but Skizzy is doing his thing in New York City. I know we are a little late on Skizzy Mars but hopefully you haven’t heard these four dope songs from the musician whose influences range from Kanye West and Frank Ocean to Beirut and The Killers.

Here’s five of my favorites from Skizzy Mars. The songs are listed from newest to oldest but if you listen from his oldest song at the bottom to the newest song at the top, you will notice how the quality steadily improves, a big reason why I consider him a hidden gem and an artist that’s a must watch.

Upcoming Indie ElectroPop *Fritz Arnaude, Phantogram, Stepdad, Twin Shadow

March 1st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop, Rock |


Sorry to bunch up four emerging indie electro-pop artists into one post but at least you get to discover more than 1 artist that you might not have heard of (except Phantogram). Above is Phantogram performing “Let Me Go” live. It sounds just a little bit better than listening to their non-live version below.

First we got Fritz Arnaude who samples some of Phoenix to start off the song gets Skizzy Mars spitting some bars and overall love the instrumental. This is the kind of song that builds up so well you really can’t wait to hear what’s next.

Next we got Phantogram with “Let Me Go”. I love Phantogram becuase of how catchy, complex and intriguing their instrumentals are. Close your eyes and listen to the instrumentals and tell me your not hooked. Plus the vocals are nice.

I downloaded this Stepdad almost a month ago and loved it because of the instrumentals. Listening to it again in the car today, I kept thinking how great the instrumentals could be in a mashup. Plus I really like the weird lyrics.
Stepdad – My Leather, My Fur, My Nails
Lastly, Twin Shadow is becoming a new favorite of mine. Below is my favorite from them, “At My Heels”, which is a chill song, reminds m relaxed Two Door Cinema Club instrumentals but with American flavor (their from Brooklyn).
