Mike Melinoe Pushes Hip-Hop Outside It's Comfort Zone

 He might be from Detroit, bit it is here in Austin that Mike Melinoe has decided to plant his creative seeds.  Melinoe is a talented painter, but it is producing and performing music that proves his true passion.  Mike Melinoe does not approach his craft from a traditional strategy, rather he blends different genres and soundscapes to give his def rhymes a unique canvas to be unleashed on. Chaotic beats blend seamlessly with psychedelic influences to guarantee a refreshing take on hip-hop that doesn't fit in the mold of it's predecessors. While Mike might not be producing traditional rap songs that would make fans in Detroit, he has pushed the envelope a bit further to a different aesthetic and methodology that is right at home in Austin.


Outbanders Enter Statosphere with Debut EP 'Emergent Patterns'


 Local musicians, Zak Angelle and Brandon Valosek of the Austin duo, Outbanders, have aimed for a distant universe on their new 3-song EP, Emergent Patterns. A deep pulsating bass serves as the backbone for a symphony of synths, soundbytes, and soundscapes. While retro-dance on the whole may be hackneyed and overdone, the funk rhythms and futuristic signature of Outbanders begs listeners to give this duo a serious listen.

Slow builds coalesce into interstellar supernovas on these three tracks, but its the nuance of atmospheric effects and the bleeps and bloops that fortify the quality. While Outbanders might not have much material to dig into just yet, Emergent Patterns has set a precedent that has stirred the curiosity of its listeners to want more.
