Are You Up On...

We at RatherUniqueFLA pride ourselves on being up on new or slept on local and national acts. Every week we're going to get you familiar by providing a profile and example for best new or unheralded artists.

Week 1 Artist:

Miami has more to offer than just base, cocaine tales and club music. QuEST, the 19 year old Miami native is solidifying himself as a testament to the previous statement. Make no mistake about it, as far as lyricism is concerned, QuEST is probably the best "New Generation" cat FLA has to offer.

The tape that really lifted my ears was his "Distant Travels into Soul Theory". In this mixtapes, that plays like and album, he loops countless soul classics one may/should be familiar with through sampling. This concept album is based on a relationship gone wrong and thus leading him into some hard times. It can get kind of mushy so be prepared for sorrow induced rhymes about manning up and asking the girl out, finding love, and subsequently losing it. It is definitely worth the download and thrusts him on the radar for his next big endeavor.

Back After a Long Hiatus

It's been a while since our last post huh? That last Halloween post took a lot out of me. I'm just playing, but I'm back at it and will post more often for the foreseeable future.

With all that being said, we're beefing up the shop for 2011. We're looking to go heavy into vintage wear and other accessories. We dabbled with jackets and the snapbacks but we're going all out for next year. Expect tailored garments, vintage denims and unique accessories.
