The Investigation into Dr. Yen Lo

The Investigation into Dr. Yen Lo by Dan-O At first the new release(Days with Dr. Yen Lo) from Ka and his fits-like-a-glove producer Preservation might just seem like music to go crazy alongside (or because of) and in a way it is but it’s in a very unique way that must be looked into and understood.Continue reading “The Investigation into Dr. Yen Lo”

Mixtape Review-The Nehruvian EP by Bishop Nehru

Mixtape Review-The Nehruvian EP by Bishop Nehru by Dan-O The basis for releasing this collection of music is that Nehru is working on a new album and this set of nine songs were “too sonically raw” to work on the album.

Mixtape Review-Doobie Brothaz by Jackie Chain & ST 2 Lettaz

Mixtape Review-Doobie Brothaz by Jackie Chain & ST 2 Lettaz by Dan-O In music criticism consistency is actually a distinct negative. This is why Kanye West is so critic proof.
