When these guys work together, there’s an automatic flow of creativity that results in invention and beauty.

New Mountain’s SOL Bar hosts a night of hip hop, wordsmithing, and deep beats on Tuesday, September 8th. The intimate venue is ideal for an up close and personal night with some of the best emcees and DJs in Asheville and beyond.

Asheville's BomBassic is on the threshold of greatness as the word continues to spread about their performances. I sat down with the guys to talk about the trajectory of their relationship, the development of their sound, and all of the exciting things on the horizon for them.

Wednesday, February 4th, is one of the first in a series of shows put on by the Asheville Beat Tape Collective – a group of local electronic artists, musicians, and DJs who are making an effort to expand Asheville’s electronic music horizons.
