Rhett Price offers a taste of urban classicism in new single "Get It"

There is nothing quite like discovering new music that is provocative, inspiring, and tastefully unique. Boston’s Rhett Price impresses with his novel take on hip-hop: by letting luscious violin melodies lead the way Rhett creates feverish beats that have a touch of the classical, an urban haze to them, and an elegant club tinge. The intrepid violin work of Rhett is on full display in the artist’s latest track, “Get It,” which boasts an ominous-lingering bass that complements the violin flourishes coloring the composition. The song is direct, graceful, dangerous, and wholly unique. Rhett is an artist doing things his way, one not afraid to try something different; if you ask us, we say that he is walking down the right path. Stream his latest single below and discover something different. - Rene Cobar

NPK debuts retro-rugged track "Zodiac"

Boston's NPK has a brand new track that hits the mark titled "Zodiac." The song is a lo-fi hip-hop production that moves quickly and makes its point with a robust layering of synthesizers swells, a plump bassline, and a reverberating flow. While NPK typically leans on his R&B influences, he surely glazes this new single with a sweet, retro synth-pop sound to contrast the rugged nature of his assertive message about domination. The synthesizer embellishments could be something to further explore as the new song sparks curiosity for NPK's future work. Where hip-hop artists like Wale are keeping things clean and soulful, NPK offers something more evocative to a rugged throwback. Stream the new single below to wrap your head around the subtle tributes to '80s hip-hop music. - Rene Cobar
