"First Look Friday: Choosey Emits Brilliant Blessed Coast Vibes w/ “Fly Me To The Moon” [Video Premiere]"

Choosey AKA Joshua Vasquez is an LA by way of San Diego word-weaver with an ill batch of vibe-heavy frequencies to bop with. We’re proud to premiere a properly hazy new clip for his latest single “Fly Me To The Moon,” off his forthcoming debut tape Left-Field, sonically sculpted by the MPC maestro Exile. While the newest Dirty Science disciple has been keeping pretty low as of late (popping up in home studio sessions with the prolific producer) the new joint stands as a thorough introduction to the mad-rapper in a visual treatment that’s got West Coast waves for days.What do you think?

The track finds Vasquez delivering choice verbal over a seamlessly soulful groove, stitched together with a righteous swing in the pocket. Donut enthusiasts would be proud. It’s our very first taste of the upcoming Left-Field tape, which has some more sights and sounds on the way ahead of its October 14th release. So be sure to stay tuned for those. See what life is like on Jupiter and Mars with Choosey’s “Fly Me To The Moon” below and check back soon, as there’s plenty more in store from the Dirty Science crew. - okayplayer.com


"Choosey "Middle Finger Rap""

Choosey is a Gemini, which might explain the glaring differences between his recent singles. On "Fly Me to the Moon", the Los Angeles rapper seemed reflective as he shrugged through disparate topics: Forget the news; it’s all bad. He should call his girl, but eh, she’s pissed for whatever reason. There’s no clear theme for Choosey's "Middle Finger Rap", aside from the politically-correct MCs he chastises at the top of the track. From there, Choosey raps for rapping’s sake, plying the instrumental with a fluid stream of consciousness: "I’m Houdini, it ain't no boxing me, get it tangled, I’ll Criss Angel over your nonbelief/ Weights on my ankles to the bottom of seas/ They said they had that shit on lock, as I cough up the key." Magic aside, Choosey’s got bars, despite his shifting personality. Who knows how he'll feel tomorrow. - Pitchfork.com


"RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY PRESENTS EXILE (Blu & Exile) Feat. CHOOSEY (Dirty Science)"

Hip-hop lovers get excited! Red Bull Music Academy is amped to announce that Exile (Blu & Exile) featuring Choosey (Dirty Science) as emcee will be taking the stage at Goodgod and Revolver Bandroom next month as part of its free monthly Club Night series.

Expect Exile’s masterful mixing and seamless slicing of the most complicated sounds to be layered with Choosey’s freestyle lyric which combine to create an undeniable presence. These two music mischief-makers are no strangers to teaming up and together they’ll unleash some insanely progressive LA born and bred freestyle hip-hop.

The in demand American-based producers/Djs/MCs – touring Australia for the first time – will artfully blend old-school production techniques with modern tech flourishes which effortlessly bridge the gap between all things underground and mainstream.

In Sydney they’ll be supported by one of the country’s most imaginative emcees, The Tongue, along with Sydney hip-hop producer Chasm and DJ Naiki who undoubtedly demonstrate notable individuality and craftsmanship.

In Melbourne they’ll be supported by Julien Dyne, Winters and DJ Geezy. Lucky for RBMA fans, and following a groundswell of critical acclaim, Kiwi based, Julien Dyne will launch his Australian LP ‘December’ on the night before hitting the highways of Australia with his rich percussion vibes and electronic beats. Punters can also expect Winters, a local Melbourne up and coming beatmaker/producer who will tear up the Melbourne live scene and accumulate a new cult of fans from the night.

Each Club Night will be recorded and broadcast on RBMA radio.
