MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Infinite Skillz started writing lyrics while attending high school in Virginia. In college, he joined an Atlanta based crew called Unparalleled Sound (UPS). This four-man consortium went their separate ways after graduation, but remain friends. Infinite left Atlanta after graduating from Morehouse College and moved to a small town named Searcy in North Central Arkansas for grad school. After finishing his 2-year program in 16 months, Infinite started channeling his considerable drive into his many hustles. Music is one of them. He is an accomplished journalist who does not depend on music to pay his bills. Infinite's philosophy is that the only way to keep his music free from the influence of money is to refrain from depending on the music industry to provide a living. But do not be fooled. As the founding member of B.A.S.E. Inc, Infinite is almost insanely committed to putting in work on his craft and creating quality music that entertains and educates. Infinite's debut album, The Anomaly (2007), is a path clearing journey that will help restore a much-needed balance to the Hip Hop community. Building off the buzz from his debut release, Infinite Skillz has provided the Hip Hop community with gems like his Open Season Mixtape and the Swoon Music EP Volume 1. The latter is a collaboration with Mr. J aka Tha Burnin German. Swoon Music, which was created and coined by Infinite Skillz, is a perfect mixture of Oldies (Doo Wop) and Hip Hop. Additionally, Infinite is responsible for the music heard on the St. Petersburg Times, Friday Night Rewind and Nothing But Net web broadcasts. Infinite Skillz claims Virginia as his home, but draws on his Army brat upbringing to connect with people of all walks of life. His list of collaborators include the Cuban Sandwich Crisis, DJ Wreckless, DZK and many more. The Anomaly is a path clearing journey that will help redefine what Hip Hop is.

If it’s really a post-genre world, why does everything sound the same?

The two halves of Tampa rap duo They Hate Change—Dre (he/him) and Vonne (they/them)—first came together in front of the apartment complex where they both lived as teens. Dre had just moved down from Rochester, NY; Vonne was trying to sell him bad weed. It was clear from the start that the two listen to music differently from most people—they’re sonic omnivores, obsessive deep-divers, lovers of rare and radical sounds. Starting as kids trawling the internet for tracks, they’ve been collecting music from around the world and across the decades, amassing a shared sonic knowledge so deep that “encyclopedic” barely begins to cover it—not just the East Coast hip-hop that Dre grew up on, or the hyperlocal bass-music variants like jook (the Gulf Coast’s twerkably raunchy answer to house) and crank (think “Miami bass meets NOLA bounce”), but also drum ‘n’ bass, Chicago footwork, post-punk, prog (they’re, like, seriously into prog), grime, krautrock, emo, and basically any genre on the map.

Once they graduated to DJs on the Tampa DIY scene—which includes everything from punk rock house parties to the black “teen nights” that pop up in rec centers and ballrooms—they figured out how to pull all these disparate sounds together into a cohesive style. More importantly, they figured out how to make it something people will actually move to. When they made the transition to rapping and making beats, they brought that pleasure-seeking approach to sonic experimentation with them.

“With this album, Vonne says, “it’s really like, okay, you know how you talk about the internet breaking down borders? Here’s what that actually sounds like. It’s not just a hip-hop record with a couple more weird sounds. You want homegrown DIY? This is a record that was written, produced, and recorded in a 150-squarefoot bedroom from the least cool city you could think of.”

Finally, New is what a truly post-genre musical landscape is supposed to be: building deep connections that transcend outdated distinctions between them, spilling over with the joy of exploration and possibility, and daring other artists to think broader, go deeper, take bigger risks.

Let the rest of them keep playing by the old rules—They Hate Change will keep changing the game.
