If anything, Doomsquad is impenetrably unique and unlike any other band you’ll find in the “techno” or electronic dance genre or circles. Hypnotic and experimental-heavy, Doomsquad is the sort of sound that asks for total immersion in its...

One of the things I miss the most about the 90s is the overwhelming sense of optimism that permeated the culture at the time. There was a sense of energy that was present in every aspect of life and every genre of music; picking up “Kids You Knew” by The Late Greats immediately took me b...

Often hailed as the spiritual successor to “Chappelle’s Show,” Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s Comedy Central skit series, “Key & Peele” was an equally short-lived, but critically lauded and intellectually sharp television show that riffed on race relations and pop culture amongst satirizing...
