This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Go to the old Top 300 charts



J. Crist "Shining"

J. Crist seems like he is always up to something. He is performed earlier this week at the always insane V-Live Nightclub.

Earlier this month he released the official video for his track "Shining (Party At The Bar)".


Serengeti "Talk To Me"

I can't think of a time in Serengeti's career when he has been more prolific than in 2012 and we are only half way through the year. His latest project is a wonderful, hard-hitting, and well-produced new LP called C.A.R. The album was produced by the legendary Jel & Odd Nosdam, and will be released by Anticon on July 31st. I've been listening to the album for the last month, and it stands in sharp contrast to his previous two releases this year. C.A.R. takes a much more political stance at times then the fun-loving Kenny Dennis Ep, and plays it a little more close to the traditional hip hop roots that Serengeti's work with s/s/s.

C.A.R. is perhaps Serengeti's strongest effort to date and that is exemplified in the albums new single "Talk To Me".


Golden Birthday Record Release @ Empty Bottle

Golden Birthday will be releasing their third studio album, Blue Island, through the wonderful local label Rainbow Body Records tomorrow, June 26th. The album promises to be a step forward in the band's lush atmospheric pop sound.

Golden Birthday will be celebrating the release tonight with a free show at Empty Bottle with Chandeliers and Bitchin' Bajas.


Different Sleep "Be My Center"

Different Sleep is the work Rafa Alvarez a San Diego native now based in Chicago. His latest track is lush and beautifully constructed. He is firmly rooted in what now thriving downtempo scene.
