Music by: JMB
Scene: hip hop / soul (Chi Soul)
JMB (Just My Brother) is a symbiotic blend of hip hop and soul that seems both brand new and familiar. The duo consists of two of my favorite solo artists, Phenom (hip hop) and Yaw (soul). Both are people you must get to know on the Chicago music scene.
This episode was shot at Red Kiva and Morseland a couple of summers ago (much love to Drunken Monkeee and Onjalee for putting on the events). Both times, I was struck by how the different sounds blended perfectly and created something so new and refreshing that I became torn between shooting the event and blending into the crowd to just be a fan. They’ve coined the phrase “Chi Soul” to describe their music. That night “Chi Soul” picked up a lot of new fans.
