Jordan Barone stops by and serenades the Popdust offices.
Genre-blending artist, Jordan Barone, has been accurately hailed as "Billy Joel meets Drake" because of his unique sound that combines classical piano with hip-hop and R&B. He credits his musical individuality to his Staten Island upbringing and success as an audio engineer, a skill he perfected under the tutelage of Young Guru, who's also engineered for Kanye West and Jay-Z. After moving out of the production realm and into the spotlight, Barone premiered "Same Thing," a song that's received over half-a-million streams and gained the young artist many fans who are eager for his next release.
Barone sat down with Popdust's own Deascent to talk about making music with his family in Staten Island, his love of piano, and slap boxing with his brother.

Barone then showed off his musical-chops, sitting down at the piano to sing his new song "Lay You Down," a smooth number combining jazzy piano riffs with snaps and impressive vocal runs.

Then, devoting himself more completely to his vocals, he performed his hit "Same Thing," using loop pedals to show off the impressive production of the track. The song explores the risk of being vulnerable with another person, and Jordan's emotional performance communicated the track's message as effectively as the lyrics.

Then, Jordan was subjected to the nihilistic malcontent of the magic box. Who writes these questions? Why do we subject artists to them? Is the box sentient? Does it rule us all? Is anyone at the Popdust offices okay?

Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."
