[ATL+NC] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we got Hip-Hop Artist D. Anthony with his lyric visual to his ATLien (Georgia Peach). I thought this was a very innovative way to showcase his music and lyrics throughout the visual. From the production, to D. Anthony wittiness in the hook, this track becomes a favorite. Love the visuals to present his lyrics, Graphics by DapDesignz and Engineered by Absalute Robins. ATLien (Georgia Peach) is track 2/19 on his project Virgo Nation, which is now available on iTunes & Apple Music. Hard hitting beat produced by cocainetheproducer. If you like what you hear let D. Anthony know and support him by following him on all his social media links below.
[NAWF, ATLANTA] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, one member by the name of Ro$hi from ‘The Regime’ hip-hop group. Currently, Ro$hi is gearing up for his second project release, MetaCooler Mixtape. After releasing his first single Tsunami, Ro$hi continues to deliver with his latest single PLEASANT HILL RD.
PLEASANT HILL RD. is a track that resembles what your up to at night, “boy I’m ridin’ around on some cruisin’ shit”. Stays in your mind, what a catchy hook. See what Ro$hi is up to on his late night tip. Make sure you stay in the loop and follow Ro$hi on his Twitter @jiveahhroshi.
[ATLANTA, GEORGIA] For an artist it might be difficult to obtain your own beats to bring your words to life. So you gotta take matters into your own hands. For Sage BLOke, better known as SgBlk has embrace the production side to music and has created a beat tape entitled huez. The six track beat tape is definitely a piece of art. The vibes of the project presents itself, like the sounds are painting a vivid picture with various colors.
According to SgBLk “This project takes on the concept that music infects emotions, but in fact it can provide a gateway to images that normally can’t be seen in everyday life. Colors and music go hand and hand; they both express moods and give a sense of individuality“. He also added a sampled voice that makes his way through the tape and it really fits in, he says some pretty enlightening stuff. As vivid hue sounds it can keep your attention through it’s 11 minute 45 second journey of SgBLk perception of huez through sound.
Today’s Audio Fix comes courtesy of The Arven Group’s Josh Arthur, with “Psalm 151”; a gritty, tongue-in-cheek testimony-slash-apppeal to the man above for clemency from the daily trials and tribulations of existence.
Preceded by hip-hop producer Penacho’s airy pads and theremin-inspired lead synth, Arthur wastes no time – foregoing any introductions and diving immediately into a fervent plea to “the man upstairs”.
Over rapid-fire hi-hats, a darting snare and seering kick drum, the artist’s vocal stylings toggle between a weary and restless appeal for leniency to a manic and aggressive petition for power, as Arthur makes the obfuscatory sermon that is to be expected from a hymn bearing the title “Psalm 151”:
“You know the best version of me; can I have that? Oh please, oh please – can I be what you want me to be? Can I dream what you want me to dream? Can I see what you want me to see?”
Without use of profanity or much reference to violence or criminality, Josh Arthur’s almost stream of consciousness poetry is at times hard to decipher – is this is a plea for redemption or a request for favor amongst the other contestants on the battlefield? This duality delivers a soliloquy that on one hand resembles a church-pew testimony and on another is eerily reminiscent of every street hustler’s late night prayer for reprieve from the everyday struggle:
“I’m ‘bout that life, I’m ’bout that life, Lord – if it means I can be like you.”
“I don’t wanna do this no mo’. Living this life in slo mo; coming up short like Romo – thought I’d wanna bounce like pogos.”
This track should definitely keep you Audio Junkies wired until the next fix:
As always… I’m your friendly neighborhood pusher @Legasey – see you next Audio Fix!

[ATLANTA, GEORGIA] Influences in the word can lead you to the dark side. Tommy Swisher showcases these actions with his latest music video VILLAINS. The visual takes us to a female who’s dressed in white eating at a restaurant. When she leaves, she taunted by a male who was looking for trouble. You have to understand evil doesn’t mean bad. I feel like the female portrays positive/light in life but getting peer pressured into being someone who’s she not. She cant help it. VILLAINS visual was directed by ThatGuyVeezy. Tommy Swisher raps about how life can take you away and turn you evil. The production brings this track to life, shout out to E Wonder. YOUTUBE || TWITTER || SOUNDCLOUD || INSTAGRAM ||

Last time we brought you ChristinΞ it was with her Instrumental EP Betty “Moe” Trezza. This time I’m bringing you a collaborating between ChristinΞ and DGRZZL titled EMINENCE. The 11 track album definitely is worth the listen. The chemistry between ChristinΞ and DGRZZL is enchanting. DGRZZL is a writer/MC from ATL, GA as ChristinΞ is the producer reppin’ Miami, New York, and Georgia. EMINENCE was mastered by Chip Williams from Miami Beat Wave. Love listening to this project, some of my favorite tracks are FORGET, BALANCE, LAST TIME, and TO KNOW YOU IS TO LOVE YOU. Really love ChristinΞ style with her beats still maintaining a hip-hop essence with some soul and jazz. Especially in the production for TO KNOW YOU IS TO LOVE YOU it’s beautiful! The violin gives it such purity. Also, with the track FORGET DGRZZL states these lines and I think their pretty dope “I don’t even smoke but I’ll roll one up and then regret it, we live and we learn and then we learn to forget it…learn to forget it” and KOI’s voice in the intro and throughout the track was just flawless. You have to take a listen to the entire project to truly appreciate it. Check it out now via the player above!
Together we are ChristinΞ χ DGRZZL
We have joined forces to try and breed a new sound, carrying uplifting vibes upon all, like healers. A mix of ambient, soul and experimental hip hop.
Collision Records’ artist Alex Faith presents his second track off his album ATLast. I’m really digging’ this mesh up from hiphop verses to powerhouse chorus/hooks. An electronic beat with nice snares brought to you with crazy production from Wit & Wes Pendleton. You would never guess Alex had so much in him when it comes to his presence on the track. He stands out! Looking forward to his project ATLast, that dropped last month via iTunes.
Alex Faith is poised to capitalize on the success and acclaim he’s garnered from features with his own offering of music birthed in the south and raised on authenticity and gritty realism. While he holds his faith high, don’t expect to hear songs that are sermons and scripture recitations. Alex embraces his faith while still transparently rhyming about his struggles with belief, social issues, loved ones, poverty and more.
