Live-wired Vintage Trouble shoots straight from the hip and blows apart modern soul, rock, and R&B. Yahoo Music says, “Imagine James Brown singing lead for Led Zeppelin, and you’ll get an idea of Vintage Trouble’s muscular in-the-pocket sound.”

LION BABE—singer-songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey and instrumentalist and producer Lucas Goodman—draws on an eclectic mix of influences for their sonic and stunning visuals, which mirror the rich melting pot of New York cultures. Citing A Tribe Called Quest and Sergeant Pepper–era Beatles as early influences, the duo identifies with a generation brought up on the internet, with references from film and music of all genres and eras just a click away.

The Skins are an infectious Brooklyn-based band whose ages range from 15-21. They play like old pros, offering a soulful interpretation of rock that today’s audiences crave, while proving age doesn’t matter.

The Triptych, a documentary series highlighting outspoken visual artists of our time, profiles the culturally resonant voice of Kenyan-born sculptor and artist Wangechi Mutu. Based in Brooklyn, Mutu’s acclaimed Afrofuturist works explore feminism, globalization, and the post-imperialist age.
