Super Origami

This past week Da Bassment had the opportunity to sit in on a residency night in Cincinnati at The Comet. The vibrations were elevated and the music was electrical, Super Origami put on a show. Combining music art and  culture in one building, using their sound to break down social stereotypes and speak on injustices as well as everyday life. The room was packed and filled with people from all walks of life connecting through the music. There was a cohesiveness between everyone who attended last night’s show and the love was truly felt and genuine. The live instrumentation quickly got the crowd to their feet, within seconds more than half of the audience was front and center dancing laughing and having a good time. The nostalgic vibes of the venue (The Comet) accented perfectly with their sound, placing you in a different time zone similar to the 70’s with free spirits, righteous hippies and revolutionaries. Make sure you check out the video below and as always….

The Reach

Although California has been in a recent drought there has been no shortage of good music from The Golden State, which is evident on the up-and-coming artist Boogie’s 2015 mixtape The Reach. Growing up in the gang-infested culture that traps so many fellow Compton youth Boogie uses The Reach to give his perspective of the strife and struggles he’s witnessed in his lifetime. This lyrical assassin put his skills on display from the intro, having no features from any other rappers but still managing to keep the listeners engaged on every song. The thing that stands out most about the project is Boogie’s lack of fear allowing the listener into his world, whether he is speaking on his family, his environment, or getting shot and bouncing back better than ever. This thought provoking mixtape can be seen as a sign of inspiration for those who are currently where Boogie has been, showing them that it is possible to make it over your obstacles. Be expecting big things in 2016 from Boogie as he has recently signed a deal with Interscope Records.
