Birthplace Magazine Announces The First PitchBlak Playlist Artist of 2016

The PitchBlak Playlist is a free new monthly series at Manhattan Inn, hosted by PitchBlak Brass Band and presented by HYPNOCRAFT. Each month, the Playlist will feature a different hip-hop artist -- some emerging, some established -- in an evening of collaborations arranged by PitchBlak members.

Birthplace Magazine announces the first PitchBlak Playlist artist of 2016, today: Bond St. District. The duo's debut EP 'Everybody's So Sleepy' fuses the aggression of hip-hop with the heyday of Motown, culminating in a sound that is irresistible and familiar yet idiosyncratic.

The PitchBlak Playlist series exists at a perfect time, one where the fusion of sounds and ideas is remarkably prevalent in hip-hop music and culture, amplifying the unique ability of hip-hop to deliver a wide spectrum of music [and] complex emotions and thoughts.
