Exclusive Interview with Joe Vango of Audiomack

Audiomack’s Secret Weapon

I recently had the chance to visit the Audiomack HQ and chat with Joe Vango, Marketing Coordinator. Joe is originally from Philadelphia and has made quite an impact in the music industry in a few year’s time. He speaks on bringing out James Shaw, the Waffle House hero, at Rolling Loud, the new Kanye produced albums, and artists he’s currently listening to. He also touches on J. Cole’s surprise KOD event in New York. Joe even shares how upcoming artists can garner his attention.

Joe got his start in the music industry writing for Hypefresh Mag, from there he began curating playlists. His knack for finding new artists and his keen sense of discovering new sounds made him visible to the Audiomack team. David Ponte, Co-Founder of Audiomack, sings Joe’s praises. “Joe is probably one of the most unsung taste makers in the industry,” with which I had to agree, “YES!” Ponte continues “He’s kind of like our secret weapon, he makes sure that we have the dopest upcoming artists on Audiomack first.” As a previous co-worker I can attest to all of this. #YouShouldKnowJoe

Kur is Repping for the Have Nots

‘Have Not’ is Kur’s latest musical effort. The 22 year-old rapper has been WORKING. The EP has all of eight songs and features some of the hottest producers in Philly. Maaly Raw, Don Cheese, and Infamous Rell have produced some of Kur’s crowd favorites. Songs such as No Trust ft Dave East, Right Now, and the namesake of  this entire project, Have Nots. Childhood friend and fellow Philly rapper, Chynna Rogers assists Kur on one of my favorite tracks, Razor. The sh*t gets you amped! Chynna delivers a cut throat chorus with lyrics like

 

“LIKE WHAT’S YO NAME, LIKE WHERE YOU FROM? LIKE WHO’S YOUR GANG? WE DON’T KNOW THEM. THAT MEANS THEY FOOD, THAT MEANS YOU TOO.”

The A$AP Mob’s first lady takes no prisoners.
Kur also enlisted Coop Poppy and Lihtz Kamraz. One thing we know about Kur is that he has a core (lol) peer team that he prefers to work with. Artists who vibe well with his music.
Be on the lookout for his debut studio album, Shakur, set to release in November 2016.
