"ADONIS DELIRIOUS" Article in Examiner.com (Puget Sound Mixtape 2010 Interview Series)


ARTICLE LINK - http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-44594-Tacoma-HipHop-Music-Examiner~y2010m7d5-Adonis-Delirious-Prolific-Mixtape-Emcee-PSM-2010-Interview-Series

The artist behind Puget Sound Mixtape's track number 11, "Iz This 4 Me", is no stranger to the concept of a mixtape. Adonis Delirious has been releasing mixtapes from the age of 11, and in the last two months, he has released five such albums - "HardCopy", "HardCopy 2: Tha Zodiac", "Street Fighter", "Thank Me L8r" & "Eclipse".

While readers have not seen him on stage, they can hear and download all of his music on his website, Delirious Domain.

Adonis counts many artists as influences, including his father - house music artist, DJ and remixer Donald Glaude. Both Adonis' musical influences and family background have helped him develop a greater appreciation for all genres of music; though, hip hop will remain his favorite form of expression. Using his birthname, Adonis writes he has been told he added "delirious" at the age of 3 and realizes, "It is a good descriptor word for me. I swear it's as if Im in a permanent state of delirium".

Taking advantage of the notoriety his home state has received in recent years, Adonis recently released his "Eclipse" mixtape.  Listeners will appreciate Adonis' ability to sing and rap on these tracks intermixed with references to the Twilight trilogy. Adonis also hopes listeners will enjoy his two favorite tracks from the album - Ibiza and Divine. Adonis explains, "'Ibiza' exhibits me growing as a storyteller". He feels he has developed as an emcee but would like to continue learning the storytelling aspect of a hip hop artist.

To find out more about Adonis Delirious, including information about his upcoming summer release "Soufsides Socialite", add his daily updated website as a favorite and follow Adonis on twitter. Adonis also shares his music on Myspace and Youtube.

"WHIKID" Article in Examiner.com (Puget Sound Mixtape 2010 Interview Series)


ARTICLE LINK - http://www.examiner.com/examiner/x-44594-Tacoma-HipHop-Music-Examiner~y2010m7d5-Whikid-An-Old-Soul-with-New-Ideas-PSM-2010-Interview-Series

Whikid, recently seen performing with Darxiide at the Viaduct in Tacoma in June, is the artist behind Northwest SlumpFunk, track number 9 on the Unofficial Puget Sound Mixtape.

Whikid's full hip hop name is Professor Whikid Matticuless, Nerdbone, reflecting his true name, his connection to the hip hop community, and his perception of the world. Of Whikid, he explains, "The first part, WHI, is just my name, Whitney. I took that and added on the KID. It kind of represents my attraction to youth, and being free like a kid". Despite his maturity both in his music and his work ethic, Whikid holds strong to the influences he found in his youth, including his father's records:  "My dad had a nice record collection of soul and funk and R&B and stuff, but he never played his stuff for us kids. But just always seeing all of the records stacked up, pulling them out and looking at the covers and trying to put it back exactly in the right spot so we didn't get in trouble"

The influence Whikid's memories of his father's music collection has had on him is not unlike that of other musicians who have endured through the changing music media. The rapid change from records to tapes to cds and now mp3s has greatly affected music sales, and artists must stay current as Whikid is well aware. Even still, he enjoys the novelty of "putting out physical objects that can be held and stored in a closet to get dusty". If Ebay is any predictor of novelty, it is those collections of music memorabilia, especially those physical forms of music, that still hold their monetary value.

Whikid describes himself, as an artist, as an honest emcee. He enjoys hip hop music simply because it allows him to express his opinion and, as such, views himself as an emcee. He has battled in the past and sees that aspect of hip hop as one of developing respect among other artists who must listen and understand before responding on the mic. Whikid believes that a true emcee must embody storytelling as well as battling. He is continuing to work on his craft in all areas as he moves forward.

Whikid's favorite song to perform is Super Grunge, produced by Ma$hin Ne3k. He is hoping to put together an album with all songs produced by the same producer in the future. For now, fans can find his track Northwest SlumpFunk on the Puget Sound Mixtape.

To learn more about Whikid, including his developing ideology promoted through his new rap group Greathinz and their upcoming album, readers can check out his Myspace page and youtube channel. Whikid is available for performances, house parties, and poetry readings.
