It’s been a while since we’ve seen something more relaxed from Chicago, Martin $ky is the city’s answer to take a chill pill and light one up.
His first song surfaced 4 months ago which was produced by the impressive Madlib & Flying Lotus and since then he’s delivered nothing but great tracks on his soundcloud adding a real in depth and complex flow that keeps you listening. Not only does this cat have a great sound and support but also makes beats, the video above and this brand new track give you a taste of some “super cold shit”. Keep an eye on this cat, I can see him being in the spot light real soon.

The intergalactic Moon Boots has built a reputation in recent years for unforgettable melodic hooks and a penchant for flipping vocal samples like the boom bap producers of yore. I recently had the chance to share the decks with him in Mexico City and he’s also a solid selector and stand-up dude. Today the former member of Hey Champ! returns with No One, a collage of sultry female hooks, Chicago house rhythms and jazz hands that glisten like the moons of Jupiter. Download it gratis.

Chicago is easily recognized as one of the most successful pop rock bands ever, having lasted for so many years while still charting single after single.
To achieve longevity in the music industry, Chicago’s sound evolved to keep pace with popular culture. With disco rising to dominate the airwaves in the 70s, the band released their thirteenth LP (cleverly titled ‘Chicago 13′) which was produced with disco clubs in mind.
Their track Street Player is such a departure from traditional rock and roll. There’s this long sort of tribal funk house break about halfway through (which is pretty standard for disco records of the era), but keep listening and check out the last couple minutes. It’s easily my favourite part!
Oh yeah, and it’s been heavily sampled as well… but I’ll leave that up to you to figure out. Too easy.
