OMGZ can you believe it? BC and Merch have joined mixtape-forming forces with pop-rocker Neiliyo to create “The Best of H-Town Mixtape”! All of those crazy rappers that were born and raised in Houston, Texas and rap about their southern upbringings are on this mix. We got some old stuff and even added some newbies. Make sure to add this to your summer beach cruising CD stash and share with all of your hip-hop lovin’ O.G.’s!
Neiliyo is at it again. He just released a new LP, “Runnin’ #Errndz”, which is super baller. We personally love the use of the hash-tag in the title, and don’t you sound totally gangster when you say “Ernndz” aloud? Yes, yes you do. He actually lists off his personal list of errands I mean errndz in the track “Real Time (Ernndz)”.
AND the one and only steve leeve from our favorite masher-upers, The Hood Internet, did the artwork. Look at Neiliyo’s little boat shoes! Just look at ’em! His funky electro-pop sound and schnazzy synths will definitely make you “get your sneakers on” and “make sure the speakers on” and have a mega footloose dance party.
Standout trackz: “Micropop” and “I Just Love Making Music”
The Party Line is super stoked about this week’s radio show. We are going to be broadcasting a super dance party across the FM band like never before in KTSW history.
The solo electro-pop super star, Neiliyo, will be in the studio performing live and talking about all the cool stuff he does around Austin and beyond. You may have caught him jumping on stage in his signature boat shoes or rolling around on the ground; guitar still intact. He truly loves to engulf himself in the party-goer crowd during his set.
Neiliyo makes his original super-funk music along with a little help from his iPhone, a MacBook and a Telecaster. Check out his single “Hopscotch” off the newly release album “Game Night.”
At Fun Fun Fun Fest we danced on stage with Neiliyo while he performed with one of our favorites, DJ Car Stereo (Wars). Here is one of the videos captured by an audience member during their set. If you look closely at the stage, you can see Merch in a fedora and Zack from Austin Vinyl dancing! BC was right behind us.
To sum it all up, we are going to have a lively show this week and you should definitely listen in. We will have some people in the studio to create the dance party atmosphere that Neiliyo is used to. Check out Neiliyo’s website for super funky updates, and chat with him through his Twitter page.
Tune in Wednesday night 10-midnight on 89.9 on the FM dial, or stream live from your computer at www.KTSW.net. You can also follow us on Twitter and check out all the dance-yo-pants-off-tracks that we will be playing. And…CHAT with us like it’s 1999! During the show we will announce a chat room that we will be using, so watch out.
