Couchsessions recently got a chance to work with Reverbnation on a cool little project. They opened up their books to us where we got to flip through the all the seriously talented acts they have posted over there. After our editors worked tirelessly to get through all the dope acts and debated out the decision [...]

EVENT PREVIEW: Red Bull takes over LA: 30 Days In LA

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/redbull_30Days-posters-300x250.jpg

I’m convinced the world is addicted to buying energy drinks.  How else could Redbull produce so many promotional events, both music and sports, on the global level that they do annually?!?  It’s crazy! And what they have lined up in Los Angeles for the month of November alone is enough to make you stop and [...]

MUSIC: Black Milk – Scum

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Black-Milk06082013-300x250.jpg

Over the years Black Milk has grown in stature from dope Detroit based producer into soemthing much more. His albums have increasingly gotten more and more complex from where they felt like solid but slightly disconnected pieces of good rapping and beats. Black Milk in 2014 is a much more self assured producer AND rapper [...]

MUSIC: Mobb Deep – Biology

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Mobb-Deep-3_652x367-300x250.jpg

While they haven’t hit the highs of Prodigy’s solo career turn for the last decade, it seems Mobb Deep is trying to regroup and refocus after years of infighting. While they aren’t the rappers that they used to be (although Prodigy’s metamorphosis into nihilistic PSTD old man has been awesome to listen through) they are [...]

MUSIC: Drake Drops 3 Tracks

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/drake-cover-650-300x250.jpg

Off the heels off an earlier leak this week of the song “How About Now”, the current overlord of whine rap, Drake, has dropped a better quality version of that track along with two others, “6 God” and “Heat Of The Moment”. What makes these songs interesting is they cover pretty much the three aspects [...]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Screen-Shot-2014-10-20-at-10.02.48-PM-300x250.png

Producer extraordinares The Kickdrums have teamed up with Bay Area Artist Duckwrth for a new EP entitled Nowhere, and we’ve got the first single below: “Super Soaker”. While you might think it’s an affectionate shoutout to kiddie toys, tackling police brutality is the subject. “Overtime I turn my tv (on)/I see another black kid (gone)/Killed [...]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Screen-Shot-2014-10-20-at-10.18.40-PM-300x250.png

When they aren’t getting jacked for beats, Brooklyn duo The Stuyvesants are making extremely dope instrumental hip-hop. Members Allan Cole and record Darien Victor Birks find that sweet spot between head nodding beats and music that you put on the background as you serve that special someone a bubbling glass of Andre. Listen below. [...]
