Jamaican Queens
Jamaican Queens
THIS IS DETROIT TRAP POP. Ryan Spencer pens songs with provocative lyrical imagery. These are accounts of intense violence, hopelessness, and drug use— juxtaposed with honest tales of love, a lack thereof, and the pursuit of a reason to live.

Jamaican Queens have a unique way of making the uncomfortable tolerable, and the sexually explicit accessible. Whether you are looking for infectious earworms with which to sing along, or MDMA-induced club bangers to provide the soundtrack for an evening of popper huffing— Jamaican Queens have got your back. This is post-everything pop for people terrified of reality.

Heavily influenced by the southern rap beats of Three 6 Mafia, Gucci Mane, and Young Jeezy, as well as the experimentation of Brian Eno and Lee Scratch Perry— the outcome is an urgent canvas overlaid with pop hooks that would make David Bowie blush.

This is new. This is different. From a city left behind by the failures of a once great country, this is Jamaican Queens. Welcome.

Blending cacophonous and dense synth and drum textures into an entirely cohesive stylistic idea moving from the fast and disorienting to the subtle and ambient. Drum 'n' synth.
Nothing Major
Nothing Major
Nothing Major is a Lakewood, OH hip-hop duo combining the works of producer Rob Moore and rapper Jacob Matthews. Starting in the fall of 2014 in the peaceful, mega-liberal Cleveland suburb, what began as a couple of teens finding ways to pay respects to their idols has blossomed into something different altogether.

The group brings a unique perspective and approach to hip-hop, blending an ambient cloud rap ethos with the edgier works of contemporary alt hip-hop visionaries like Vince Staples, Isaiah Rashad, and Odd Future.

The duo released their EP Cold Drinks in July of 2017 to great regional acclaim and are beginning work on their new LP.
