Pioneer 11
Pioneer 11
Named after NASA’s 1973 robotic space probe of the same name, Pioneer 11 crearte transmissions from cosmic coordinates where the spacecraft is adrift. Psychedelia preserved in hazy, languid guitar riffs. If you’ve ever wondered what Darkside would sound like with the addition of Dilla literate beat masons, look no further. Space rock that's perfect for passing time while you’re waiting for the Metro or waiting for lift off.
Chester Watson
Chester Watson
One of the most gifted teenaged rappers this side of Earl, Nas, or Andre. The Monotone Samurai, the leader of Nu Age, lungs black as his irises, a young searcher wrestling with the present and future. Chester Watson is an adolescent gypsy that skated through St. Louis, Georgia, and Florida, blessed with a wild imagination, precocity, and a dark temperament. He re-imagined himself as a cursed black Pharaoh covered in golden scarabs, an enigma with wings, spitting raps as hot as Guatemalan springs. A new anti-hero with venom, the beast hallucinated on ayahuasca or just too much liquor. As Watson says himself, “the best villain since Mad-V.”

He creates dusted and damaged psychedelic music, ideal for imprecations and illicit behavior, baleful hymns and bleak parables. Rap for warm-hearted skeptics and seekers, smokers and sippers

"One of the best new musicians" - Complex

"A Florida teenager who sits so comfortably and skilfully amongst his influences that he already feels like their peer." -Pitchfork
