Chi-Town Rising NYE Celebration Recap

posted by Rosario Edwards January 4, 2016

December 31st – 2015

The last day of the year carries a special kind of energy, whether it be excitement for what’s to come, or dread of those unresolved resolutions from the past. The news that I was going to be able to attend Chicago’s first New Year’s Eve Star Raising, by way of a radio call-in contest of all things, definitely made me feel excited for the night ahead. The mood at Broadcast Boulevard, as it was called, on Wacker drive was hopeful for the first Chi-town Rising event, but the attendance seemed fairly low when I first arrived. Considering the low temperatures and high ticket prices I was actually surprised that it  started to get crowded towards midnight. I found my way into the VIP tent a few times, but only because I put my white wristband on upside-down, on accident, making it appear as if I had a black VIP wristband. A few complimentary glasses of Merlot later and I was ready to go out and brave the cold for the night. Continue Reading

posted by Oscar May 31, 2015

Donnie Trumpet Surf

Let’s start off by putting this simply: Surf is a modern day musical masterpiece. Dopeness Factor: 5/5.

The buildup toward this project’s release was an exciting one and when it finally dropped, it was an experience all of its own. Surprise announcement; 16 masterfully crafted tracks, with no mentions of features in sight; and absolutely FREE on iTunes! A release like no other for the mega digital content store, and an opportunity to reach millions of people and have them finally learn of the awesomeness that Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment (consisting of Chance The Rapper, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, and Stix) are bringing to the music world.
