Shaded Profit dropped his new track I’m Coming Home just 10 days ago. This Hip Hop & Rap was well influenced by his home town on the Bronx. He’s no Baller attempting to adopt some grandiose Gin and Juice persona. No, the talented solo artists music is influenced by his awkward experiences as a child as he struggled with his self-proclaimed Nerd persona. To be honest it was just nice to hear a rap artist that had respect for women.
To put it lightly Shaded Profit is adorable and so is his sound which mixes contemporary pop with lyrics that are actually a pleasure to listen to that offer endless introspective poetry. I’m Coming Home is dedicated to the men and women in the Armed Forces, it’s probably the best Hip Hop track of it’s genre since Eminem brought out Toy Soldiers. He takes a tragic subject and puts his lyrics against a traditional upbeat Hip Hop track that take away the gravity of emotion and just immerses you in the music.

Oozing out of the midwest, Detroit’s Liquid Monk have an incredible new song for listeners to embrace. Their new track “On the Rocks” is an example of an impeccable attention to detail. The perfect blend of sultry vocals and a velvety bassline, palpable to the touch the track delivers a refreshing ambience in an attempt to make the listener feel as good as the melody sounds.
With breathtaking lyricism, each line is visual and engaging. Playing on the sensations that trigger imagination, this track propels audiences into another realm. Brilliantly incorporating softness to mask intrinsic animalistic tendencies, they enlist the help of Jaye Prime and Hugo Biggs to set the mood.
A nice departure from the chaos around us, simply retreat to paradise with the help of Liquid Monk.
Since forming in 2013, Liquid Monk has become a name in the Detroit music scene synonymous with instrumental virtuosity, genre bending creativity, and energetic live performances. Integrating an array of live instrumentation alongside electronics, the group has redefined how organic and electronic elements can blend to bring the excitement of a live band along with the texture and dance groove of a producer or DJ.
Their debut EP, “Yaga”, was released in 2015 and took the group into Michigan’s jam and live electronic scene. The release had a unique blend of fiery jazz fusion, lush synthesizers and pounding live electronica, which Sound and Silence described as “Chic meets Umphrey’s meets early Daft Punk on steroids”. This led to performances alongside acts like Quantic, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, GOSH PITH and Aqueous at well-known clubs and festivals in Michigan including Ann Arbor Summer Festival Top Of The Park, Dally In The Alley, Metro Times Blowout, The Loving Touch, Cliff Bell’s, The Loft and many more.
In 2016, Liquid Monk continued expanding in the Detroit music community and connected with talented vocalists and rappers. With a diverse pool of lyricists, they realized a vision of merging their jazz and fusion roots with electronic music and the vocal power of pop, hip hop and R&B. The band acts as a producer showcasing the unique talents of each collaborator while also creating a sonic landscape that can only be described as Liquid Monk. Their upcoming self-titled debut LP is due out this spring.
