Artist of the Week: DJ Curt Henny Rolls Out Sonic Rawness With S.U.S.H.I.

SONGS U SHOULD HEAR INTOXICATED or S.U.S.H.I. is a fantastic mix series to listen to during any state of mind, because it offers much variety in the music being spun. It would not hurt to be under the influence of a little cognac, and well, who doesn’t love cognac? Artists you might be familiar with include Conway The Machine, Amy Winehouse, Kanye West, Casey Veggies, Kid Cudi, Quentin Miller (Drake ghostwriter), The Underachievers, Stormzy, Ibeyi, Lil Wayne and Chicago local rising talent SoloSam, and more. DJ Curt Henny offers an eclectic mix of sounds and styles with his S.U.S.H.I. volumes 1 and 2.

Before the quarantine virtually shut down the live entertainment industry; one could find DJ Curt Henny spinning all over Chicagoland. Working showcases, open mics, weddings, or even big opener sets spinning for SoloSam and various Ever Evolved artists. Now that most of the industry has resorted to bedroom antics, we are excited to hear more SONGS U SHOULD HEAR INTOXICATED. We are sure a lot of you will be frequently under the influence, so turn on some DJ Curt Henny.

All Of Our Friends Are Cardboard People

From the San Francisco Bay Area emerges Cardboard People, an up and coming dynamic trio with strong perspectives. Comprising of vocalist Yunoka Berry, producer and songwriter Jim Greer, and Hieroglyphics founder and producer Damien Siguenza, all with a common goal. To give voice to the voiceless, with strong lyricism outlining social and political barriers and differences in our culture, through a blend of hip hop and avante-garde pop music. Announcing their self titled project with their debut single BONDAGE; it sounds like it will turn some heads.

BONDAGE is a strong message of the effects of slavery on the Black experience in America. Not leaving anyone out, being told through the perspective of the captor; the white man, singing “I am your leader, your fearless leader… I will control you, seek out to own you.” Acknowledging, no matter how uncomfortable, the imperialistic mindset, that oppressed and violated the sovereignty of many people. “I traveled from sea to sea, I want whats owed to me. I’ll do whatever it takes, to snatch all your kingdoms away.” To accompany the release is a music video, taking place at the ocean, a metaphor to slave ships perhaps? A strong intro to the forthcoming project, exciting to see what else they have on their minds.
