Altin Gün

Netherlands-based band, Altin Gün, has reached audiences across the world with their psychedelic, disco-laced reinterpretations of traditional Turkish folk songs. We got to see the Turkish-Dutch ensemble bring their signature 1970s psychedelia to Brooklyn Steel, one of many stops on their big North American tour.


To listen to 79.5 is to dial in to the sound of the city. The band, named after a fictional radio station, was founded by Kate Mattison over a decade ago. It’s taken many forms since its inception, but the most recent lineup includes vocalist and keyboardist Kate Mattison, vocalist  and rapper Lola Adanna, bassist Andrew Raposo, drummer Caito Sanchez and multi-instrumentalist Izaak Mills on the saxophone and flute. 

Chuck Strangers

It’s more than likely that you’ve heard Chuck Strangers’ beats on some of your favorite tracks from the last decade. He has an impressive production portfolio that has earned him credits on projects such as Joey Bada$$’s 1999. Arguably one of the greatest mixtapes of all time, 1999 was an album that propelled Joey Bada$$’s career and earned him platinum certifications.

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong

The psychedelic funk jam quartet that is Pigeons Playing Ping Pong came together in 2007 and released their debut album, Funk E P, in 2010. The band–Greg Ormont (vocals, guitar), Jeremy Schon (guitar, vocals), Ben (bass, vocals), and Alex Petropulos (drums, vocals)–has since gone on to release a total of six studio albums including their most recent project, Perspective (2022). With over fifteen years of experience under their belts and more than two-thousand shows played across the United States, they have amassed a cult-like following known as “The Flock.” At each show, their loyal fanbase ecstatically engages in the journey of musical exploration that is built into each setlist. 

Little Brother

Touring to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, The Listening, Little Brother brought hip-hop heads of all ages together for their long-awaited show at Brooklyn Bowl. Kooley High and Brooklyn-native, Skyzoo, set the vibes for the night with their energetic opening performances.


VINCINT is back, and he’s ushering in a new, joy-filled era. In 2021, Vincint Cannady, known as VINCINT, released his debut album, There Will Be Tears. After a year-long hiatus, the singer-songwriter is finally ready to grace the world with new music, and we got to groove along with him as he catalyzed the start of an exciting year.
