EP: @IAMKLASSIK – Autumn

June 16, 2015 |  by  |  EP, MUSIC  |  No Comments

As another cycle of the artistic cycle comes full circle, much like the season itself, the AUTUMN phase concludes the creative journey for the artist. Warmer days are fewer and farther between, but in the days before we buckle down for the frost of WINTER again, the AUTUMN season allows for an introspective harvest of all of the vibrations and energy the creative has put forth across the past year.

The end result is a warm, welcoming foundation of sounds that still carry the radiance of the SUMMER days just past, combined with a more frank and cool understanding that the upcoming cold grip of WINTER is not to be feared, but celebrated as the introduction to yet another period to grow and mature.

EP: @FMPIFF – The Claim

May 12, 2015 |  by  |  EP, MUSIC  |  No Comments

Eight years on the hip hop scene is enough to call yourself a veteran, and perfecting the craft in a neighborhood just south of downtown Chicago is a venture tough for any man to conquer. But PVM (aka PiffVonMar) has taken the claim to the top in a progressive light, breathing a new air into the Windy City. Hard work and speaking truth are not only staples of his style, but life mantras and morals to live by. Having an inspirational family in his corner feeds the drive to move forward. Today, PVM celebrates “The Claim EP” release — the first out of the emcee’s vault after a three year hiatus to perfect an organic sound.

The 13 tracks and short documentary celebrate the victory of making it so far, but outline the journey ahead and what it takes to claim a spot at the top. Listen to “The Claim” and find out what PVM is all about.
