Kali Uchis Get Funky
The Colombia-born siren floats on her latest track, “After The Storm,” with significant assists from both Tyler and funk music legend Bootsy Collins.

Louie Vega Snags Another Grammy Nod
The 2017 Grammy Award nominations were announced today with some familiar names. A year after he was nominated for what was (incredibly) his debut album, Louie Vega Starring…XXVIII, Louie Vega will return to the red carpet this year for a remix of a Loleatta Holloway song.
