Explain Presents: And Beyond

Words by Evan Froiland 

It's the top of the year. Just finished one off. Everyone in the world has hot takes and lists bouncing from one year to the next. So we thought - why not put out a little mixtape of some of our favorite artists? Especially those we expect big things from in 2017.

'And Beyond' is a Milwaukee hip-hop mixtape. At 6 tracks, we'd be silly to say it represents the scene as a whole. The number of artists involved in this community, that continue to catch our attention, is huge and constantly growing. This small representation is a dope listen and immediately begins to show all the talent and diversity we have here.

It's been awesome watching many Milwaukee artists making things happen for themselves in the past year and this new year should be nothing but furthering of that. And Beyond.
