Hoodboi’s Breathing Room EP Review by Josh AKA DJ iEHOA

Roger Schami better known as Hoodboi is a producer and DJ based in LA. He has been working since he broke out in 2014 gaining popularity with his club/jersey twist on many hits of the 90s.

He has toured and collaborated with many amazing artists such as Dillon Francis, Lido, and Alison Wonderland. In 2015 he released his debut EP “Palm Reader” which gained him massive support from fans all over the world.

In 2018 after being silent for about a year he has finally came back working on his latest EP “Breathing Room”. This EP brings a whole brand new sound for his Hoodboi project moving away from the Jersey Club to a more Groovy club sound. The EP also has features other amazing artists Jerry Folk and Tkay Maidza. Overall, I am excited for this EP and cannot wait to see what is next for Hoodboi in 2018.

Some of my favorite tracks in this EP are Tip Of My Tongue and Glide.

Surfing radio waves

Congrats to KZSC listener Phillip from Vallejo! Phillip was surfing the radio waves and heard about the opportunity to own an awesome surf board and support student-run community radio and dropped in for an epic ride.

KZSC is grateful to the Santa Cruz Boardbuilders Guild on the Westside of Santa Cruz for supporting locally-grown radio. Phillip’s new 9’2″ long board was hand-shaped  by Jefferey Devine and glassed by the talented and dedicated craftsmen of the Guild. We’re proud to have inspired this brilliant yellow board with black rails, sporting the KZSC logo—hand-crafted by surfers in Santa Cruz, California!

Hey, did you see the surfboard they made for KZSC’s Wiki Wiki Wednesday? What a work of art!

Lido & J’von’s New Spacesuit EP Review by Josh AKA DJ iEHOA

After his final tour as Trippy Turtle, moving away from his high-tempo/high-energy jersey club music, Peder Losnegård has shifted his music focus to his other stage name Lido. As Lido, his music is more focused on Hip-Hop and R&B with an electronic twist. Lido has been around for quite some time now, one of his most popular songs to date is Angels with Chance the Rapper.

He has also worked with other artists such as Halsey and Cashmere Cat.

In 2018, he is back working closely with Seattle rapper J’Von in producing the EP Spacesuit. The EP includes 7 R&B tracks that flow smoothly and effortlessly, along with its soulful vibe throughout the EP which displays the beautiful production and work of Lido and J’Von.

Some of my favorite tracks in this EP are Sneakerhead, Westin, and Stay With Me.

You can check out the whole EP here.

LOCKSMITH Concert Review by Phaust aka Tim Hoffman 4.25.18

On April 25th, 2018, underground legend Hip Hop legend Locksmith walks onstage at The Catalyst, Atrium, in Downtown Santa Cruz before an excited audience. Locksmith gripped the audience and delivered an outstanding performance that was exciting and unexpected, it served as an amazing display of his talent as a lyricist as he spits his verses with a masterful flow and with great speed. The opening acts from artists such as Alwa Gordon and Soular managed to set the tone for the oncoming performance of the Bay Area legend who has toured with the likes of legends such as Joe Budden and R A the Rugged Man.

Locksmith would regularly interact with the audience during his performance, at one point coming down from the stage to rap in the middle of the crowd. His performance reminded me of Tech N9ne due to the high energy and the flawless execution of his performance. Production ranged from classic Boom Bap to more contemporary influence from the Trap scene, with each song carrying an intensity that kept the audience moving with the beat. Overall it was an amazing show and I can’t wait to see him perform again.
