LISTEN: Ill Poetic’s “It’s All Around”

Former Cincinnati Hip Hop artist gears up for new EP release, tour and a local show in late April

Now residing in San Diego, Calif. (where he co-runs the Beat Box Records shop with another Ohio transplant, DJ Inform), former Cincinnati Hip Hop MC/producer Ill Poetic is readying his first new release since 2012’s The Synesthesia Yellow EP. The Silhouette Project is a five-song EP (with an accompanying short film) that is set for release on April 27.  The new EP began as an entirely different project. Ill Poetic was working on a music video for The Synesthesia Yellow single “Silhouette.” The video grew into a short film and Ill Poetic changed course and created an entirely new EP, which he calls a “companion piece” to Synesthesia Yellow that also “exists in a universe of its own.” “These are my words about love,” Ill Po says about the new project in a press release. “The record store opened me to genres of music I’d never been aware of but quickly fell in love with, greatly influencing my production. So the music is inspired by what I imagine my favorite artists and producers interpret love to be when they create. Each song is inspired by how I feel love translates through their music.” On April 1, Ill Poetic’s made The Silhouette Project’s ethereal, melodic and soulful slo-mo jam “It’s All Around” available to stream on Spotify and purchase on iTunes. Check out the single via SoundCloud below. The EP is being released through Ill Poetic’s Definition Music, which has morphed into a music, art and film collective. You can find out more about Definition Music here.Ill Poetic is embarking on a Midwest tour in support of the new EP that kicks of April 29 with a free show (it’s $5 for those 18-20) at Northside’s Urban Artifact. The show will also feature performances by Raised x Wolves, FAROUT, Jay Al, Hafrican and Ronin. Click here for details.

Ian Anderson has come up with a new, potentially clever way to showcase his old material. The show is called Jethro Tull and it celebrates the old band’s namesake — an 18th-century English agriculturalist who invented the horse-drawn seed drill.

The past five years have been fairly auspicious for The Roomsounds. The Connecticut quartet began its musical life as a full-bore Punk band under a different name, which earned the group a slot on the Warped Tour and scored it a Warner Bros. contract.

There are certain immutable laws in the world — the seasons will change, the sun will rise and set and Bobaflex will rock your ass clean off.
