Music supervisor for The Wire recommends…
DARKROOM PRODUCTIONS ”They’re a production company. They have a compilation of Baltimore artists coming out in April that is going to be at the forefront of this new attention to Baltimore.” (myspace.com/darkroomproductionsinc)
MULLY MAN; BOSSMAN; DIABLO ”If one of these Baltimore hip-hop artists doesn’t have a hit single in 2008, I’ll eat my head. The things they’re talking about are forward-thinking: It’s not just gangsta “” they’re not afraid to be positive while talking about real things [affecting their community].” (myspace.com/mullyman; myspace.com/bossman; myspace.com/diabloflames)
LAFAYETTE GILCHRIST ”Also lives in Baltimore. He’s a pianist and has an ensemble with horns “” he creates this jazz that’s somewhere between funk, hip-hop, and jazz. He’s the heir to Thelonious Monk.” (myspace.com/lafayettegilchrist)
NICO MUHLY ”A young modern-classical composer in New York. He’s worked with Philip Glass. Nico has an electric-violin concerto that’s going to be really good.” (nicomuhly.com)
