If you’re not the LEAST bit curious as to what is going on in the great state of Virginia, musically.. well then, my friend, I’d have to go out on a limb and say you are doing some serious snoozing.

At this point, with fresh new talents like D.R.A.M., Masego, & Treez Lowkey literally kicking down barriers and elevating previous sounds with a little VA flavor, there is no denying the native lands when it comes to sonic appeals. Virginia has ALWAYS been seen as a demographic that produces GOATS and outlandish culture, and this notion stretches back to the early 90’s during the Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott/ Timbaland golden era. Now, with that legacy and many others set in stone, it’s time for the new school age of musicians to continue building on that foundation.

There are a namely amount of artists who are up next, as it seems from the way the area is responding. iLPackMobb, undoubtedly to be mentioned when speaking on who is who. The mobb makes up a slew of different creatives: artists, producers, cinematographers, designers, and even podcast hosts. Many of the artists have released new bodies of work within the last 12 months, and others are prepping their upcoming projects to be delivered soon. To bring in the month of May with a more versatile and unexpected sound from the “underdog” (as he feels with his breakout), OnGo Dunman is the latest member to present his debut album, “PLAYBOY“.

Coined for its “futuristic” vibe throughout the 9-track project (plus the bonus), PLAYBOY serves as Dunman’s introduction to not only the masses, but himself as an artist. When asked about the album and its essence, he explained that during the period of creating this project, which was about 2 years ago, he was going through a time of finding himself–something any and literally everybody should be able to relate to. With that, came a variety of unique approaches to abstract melodies, like track 2 on the project featuring Al-Dom$ & MACK, “Let Me Know 2.0“.
Much more is in store as this project rolls out and makes its introductory impact. Stay tuned for what is to come, and in the meantime, listen below to to Future Sounds By OnGo Dunman.
