Big Lo Is #Flyah


 

James "Big Lo" Lopez is a Spanish-American emcee and producer now residing in Pensacola, FL. Big Lo is primarily known for his hardcore lyricism and sample-heavy boom-bap production that is reminiscent of mid 90s acts such as Wu-Tang Clan and Boot Camp Clik. However, Lo's high energy stage show coupled with strong wit and contemporary references makes his sound eagerly accepted by all audiences.
Although Big Lo has been releasing music and performing live for over a decade now, 2012 and 2013 have earned him the buzz he has today. Just in that short time Lo has had the opportunity to open up for Geto Boys, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Slum Village, Rapper Big Pooh, Mobb Deep, Curren$y, Lil Kim, and Nappy Roots as well as playing the Vans Warped Tour in Orlando, Fl. Additionally, he toured the East Coast twice, including stops in Tallahassee, Pensacola, Mobile, Panama City, Gainesville, Baltimore, Richmond, Nashville, Charlotte, Savannah, Washington DC, Trenton, Hartford, New Bedford, Manchester, and Portland.
2013 also saw the release of Big Lo's most successful independent album, "Magnum Opiates". "Magnum Opiates" received a plethora of praise from a number of Hip Hop pundits and bloggers including HipHopHotSpot.com, Skope Magazine, Take Cover and Shoot, Grip Squad, Act Live Music, Streets Connect, OK Tho, Urban Vault (UK), Hiphopnometry, Middle Tennessee Music and more. Rap Con Queso went so far as comparing "Magnum Opiates" to Raekwon's legendary "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx".
Big Lo has also released a number of videos via YouTube which have earned him over 44k views (at the time of this writing), has notable collaborations with Vast Aire, Tonedeff, Beretta 9 of Killarmy and J. Sands of Lone Catalysts, and formerly hosted a weekly Hip Hop radio show entitled "The Chop" that airs on WMOB Radio via WMOBRadio.com and iTunes Radio.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
