Leikeli47 | Episode 27 | Skullcandy

Leikeli47 is empowered. She’s taken control of her narrative by hiding her true identity.

Not only is she an impeccable lyricist and song writer, but she displays a masterful delivery whether rapping or singing...


Maxo | Episode 26 | Skullcandy

Maxo talks Lil Big Man, Def Jam giving him full creative control, and the power of timelessness People always ask me how I find new music, and I can never really explain it. Finding Maxo was pure luck. A mere whisper in a Twitter thread amongst music journalists where someone said something along the lines of “Maxo’s new one is so good.” It was enough to barely pique my interest. Lil Big Man didn’t have a grand placement in the coveted “New Releases” section of your favorite streaming site,...


Omar Apollo | Episode 25 | Skullcandy

He devoured YouTube tutorials to learn guitar, take singing lessons, and pick up production tips. Like many a young artist, his journey into pop stardom started by accident. The first song he...

Nick Waterhouse | Episode 23 | Skullcandy

Nick Waterhouse’s warm recordings take me back to hearing my dad’s records in the basement as a child, where his vintage Sansui stereo made everything sound like the soundtrack to a Scorsese film. He blends influences from days past to make records that deal with modern problems in a classic way. His latest self-titled record takes everything he’s learned over the last three and perfects into a masterclass of precise minimalism. Nick’s approach is admittedly utilitarian. He purposefully...

Rico Nasty | Episode 21 | Skullcandy

Rico Nasty was our first and only choice when looking for an artist that embodied the word “bold.” Not only is she the perfect artist to set off our 12 Moods project, but every decision she makes — from her visual aesthetic, to her ear for beats, her lyrics which are often scathing anti-hater incantations, to her fashion choices — all seem to radiate boldness. She has a magnetism that screams “look at me” paired with a disposition that seems to say “but I don’t care what you...
