Dre Trav & 18sense. - CALiens


If you've been following us here at PWC then you're probably already familiar with Wats Today?'s Dre Trav & Bold Print's 18sense. While 18sense. has already made his presence known as a well-rounded wordsmith, he takes the production seat on CALiens as Trav smoothly paints each canvas presented with what could be compared to a based & blunted MF DOOM type of delivery. Being recently nominated for Best Hip-Hop Album by the San Diego Music Awards, Dre Trav proves exactly why as each track pulls you through a head-nodding & humbling journey. All it takes is one listen & you can truly hear the caliber of Trav not only as an artist but as a human being with each introspectively eye-opening verse. 18sense makes a strong vocal appearance on the track "Qwest" & the project also features a jazzy collaboration with PWC/Apex Realms's own L-TEC! If our words haven't done enough to sell you at this point, it's probably best that you just press play & let the journey begin. CALiens  is definitely one to keep in your catalogue & has the perfect vibe to round out the remainder of these summer days.

18sense. - cognitive dissonance EP


I can't recall if we've posted any of his work during the somewhat short life of this blog, but SoCal emcee/producer 18sense. has been hot on our radar for some time now. With what has to be one of the most consistent deliveries in hip-hop right now, it's always a cause for excitement when we get word of a fresh drop from the Bold Print representative. Cognitive Dissonance is a smooth, introverted & overall good-natured EP in which 18sense. shuffles between written raps, freestyles & even a bit of singing to shed some unfiltered insight on the struggles of life & uplifting views on how to change it. Cited from the album info;

"we live in this world where we dont like the conditions, but we wont do anything to change it. caught up in between what and what not to believe. believe in yourself & humanity and evolve together."

That alone should be enough to have you interested in what else the young artist has to say over a beat. Follow the link below & take a listen, then grab it for $2 once you decide it's a firm fit in your hip-hop catalogue!

Skelly Sküll - Crisis EP


PWC's own Skelly dropped his Crisis EP at the beginning of last month & if you haven't heard it yet, then you might want to hop on that now-ish. We've always known Skelly to be an innovator & he does not disappoint as the self-produced 4-track showcase takes you through an introverted & electronically wired experiment from the moment you press play, with inspirations stemming from seemingly endless mediums. It's fast. It's slow. It shouts. It sings. It mourns. It celebrates.. & with the vast amount of textures & deep concepts being portrayed, it definitely has the ability to inspire. Whether it be laying down a hip-hop verse or belting our a heartfelt ballad, it doesn't take long for you to realize that this man definitely has a way with his words. Check out the Crisis EP by following the link below & if/when you decide you need that on repeat, download it for FREE!

Rossi - The Storm


Let me start off by apologizing for our extended hiatus. We've been hard at work as of late, doing what it takes to take our camp to great new heights (& sometimes that entails hiding under a rock), but we're back now with hands full of the fruits of our labor, as well a bunch of new info on what's next to come! First, we'll do a bit of backtracking to March, when San Diego emcee Rossi (formerly known as DeafSteady  Rock) dropped what we believe to be his first full-length release, The Storm. The project starts off with the bass-heavy single "No Rings", which also has visuals (posted below). A little further into it, you're greeted by some classic head-nodding boom bap vibes courtesy of San Diego producer Kahlil Brandon & Rossi's steady delivery is definitely nothing to discredit in the matter either. The track Dead Weight Madonna features production from PWC's own Skelly Sküll & that one's definitely nothing to sleep on! With a more than strong finish to boot, The Storm is undoubtedly worth a listen & if you've got $5 you can make it yours using the link below!

Ahmal D. - Planetrokk [VIDEO]


In the midst of all the recent Super Bowl madness, Ahmal D. geared up to drop some fresh visuals for his single Planetrokk. The song is undeniably smooth & the crisp video work is just the icing on the cake. We've been following Ahmal here for some time now & while we're not exactly sure what's next to come from him, we're definitely ready & waiting!

Go Yama - Hypochondriatics


Producer/guitarist GO YAMA has been a crowd favorite for us here at PWC for some time now & we were both shocked & upset to find out that his laptop was stolen recently. There have been many valiant efforts to get both the equipment returned as well as to raise money for a replacement if all else fails, including a BANGER of a track from TimeLess One (posted below). Now Go Yama has dropped Hypochondriatics, an  album consisting of 10 enchanting & in-depth sample-based singles that he managed to snag before his laptop was stolen. The craziest part about it is.... it's still FREE! So please show your support & drop a few dollars towards a great cause & get this insanely gifted musician back on his feet.
