PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – WXPN’s ‘The Key’ blog and Philadelphia Music Magazine (Philly Music Mag) are collaborating to place a spotlight on some of Philadelphia’s rising hip-hop stars. The Key Studio Sessions Presented by Philly Music Mag is a new online series that features music videos produced with local hip-hop artists and free downloads of song recordings from each of the sessions. The videos also feature interviews with the artists by DJ AfroDJiak, local producer, radio host and Philly360 Creative Ambassador.
The series launched with a video of local emcee Ethel Cee on Wednesday, September 19 which can be found online here. The series will continue over the next two weeks with sessions featuring Reef The Lost Cauze and Peedi Crakk. Philly Music Mag worked with each artist and curated a house band for the sessions. The house band consists of Elliot “El Smooth” Garland on keys, Charlie “Chaz Patz” Patierno on drums and Rhodney “Rah M. Sungee” Miller on bass.
"We are extremely pleased with our Key Session collaboration with XPN,” said Jamica “AfroDJiak” El. “Partnerships like this help us mature as a publication and provide us with the opportunity to further realize our mission and provide a platform for Philadelphia's music arts community. We are grateful to XPN for seeing our vision and providing us with the freedom to curate on their behalf."
