Cincinnati // On The Rise // Mix

image

Cincinnati is an old pork production metropolis with German roots. Its music landscape is largely flooded by folksy rock foursomes and long-haired guitarists who employ heavy reverb. Think music for blue collars. And, that grit hasn’t changed…but the sound is evolving and it’s an exciting time for audiophiles.

While Cincinnati does boast a nice hip-hop resume (at least for a city its size), it doesn’t have an identity/aesthetic like other Midwestern cities (Minneapolis, St. Louis, Chicago).

So, here, this mix showcases a different ‘Cincinnati’– A Cincinnati music scene that’s a little bit of an electronic playground, a pinch boom-bap soul and with voices proud to be from the Queen City, USA.

(Some KY artists include Elle Herring, tinyforest–they’ve been included because they’re dope. That is all.)
