Flyer on the Wall
On Saturday, April 7, the 2bers shares its fourth studio album, DIG, with the world, but it’s not merely a release party. The hip-hop duo—BlesInfinite (Luke Hale) and Eph’Sharpe (Collin Troy)—has been a Burque mainstay since its creation in 1999. With DIG the songwriters/MCs/producers wanted to mark the occasion with something beyond the typical celebratory function.

Zoology crushes it with debut album
By Summer Olsson
The 11 tracks on Zoology’s debut Krush Love buzz with electricity, but the musicians keep the energy tightly controlled, unspooling it meticulously. It’s tense. In a good way. The lyrics are clever and the rapping is precise, with multiple voices flowing smoothly around each other. Under the beats—involuntarily head-nod-inducing ones—melodies conjure hints of soul and jazz.
