This week’s print edition of the Village Voice has a nice chunk devoted to our homies Party Supplies and Action Bronson, and their recent collab Blue Chips (which you can download for free right here). It’s all online too: in the first article, they talk about the general creative process that led to their smoked out mini-masterpice, then in part two Party Supplies explains his YouTube to MPC sampling techniques. Read up on your read ups! And for more Blue Chips props, check out what Stereogum had to say when they named it Mixtape Of The Week.
“Cubic Zirconia is a considerably new, definitively genre-bending venture put together by indie-music vets Tiombe Lockheart, Daud Sturdivant and Nick Hook. Combining Lockheart’s soulful coo and perfectly in-pocket rapping/chanting with the funky, electronically-tinged instrumentation of Sturdivant and Hook, the results are as diverse as the group’s lineup.” Check out what else V Magazine has to say about Cubic Zirconia here.
