Dama Nilz: “Ceiling Fan Spins” prod. Craig MLK

By: Jack Anderson

The hardest working woman in hip hop is right here in town and all of Austin wins! After years of struggling, Brooklyn-born Anelia Lomsky AKA Dama Nilz began performing in the NYC underground hip hop circuit back in 2007. In the eleven years since, her idiosyncratic hardcore lyrical style has captivated listeners and earned her a spot on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, mentions in Vibe and Hip Hop DX magazine, and tour appearances with the likes of Ghostface Killah. With a few albums and international tours under her belt, Dama Nilz continues to exert her influence in hip hop as a DJ, producer, music video director, and of course lyricist.
Tonight she kicks off the first Belly party – paying tribute to the 1998 Hype Williams film of the same name. Dama Nilz will be DJing and hosting the Belly Party 10pm tonight at Plush, where if hours of dancehall, latin and hip hop isn’t enough for you, you can help yourself to free empanadas and Tekken. For a sneak peak at the sincerity and talent Dama Nilz brings to the table, check out a previously unheard single produced by Belly Party co-host Craig MLK – “Ceiling Fan Spins”.

Genuine Leather: “Getting Used to the Feel”

For a lot of self-made bedroom producers, lo-fi isn’t just a creative choice; it’s a necessity. Yeah, not everyone has the technical prowess, access to equipment, or funding to match the pristine masters of their commercial radio contemporaries. But when lo-fi folks like that gain the resources to make the leap up, it’s hard to […]

Big Bill: “Emotions”

If you’ve kept posted on Austin quartet Big Bill, you know they’re in somewhat of a post-pivot position. Yeah, after years of establishing their space in the oddball-deadpan-art-punk sector, Big Bill pulled off a risky switch to more of a ’90s-style indie rock sound with their Summer 2022 full-length Public Freakout Compilation. And while we’d […]

Jomo & The Possum Posse: “La Quinta”

Short-term shelter ain’t just part of a discreet routine for affairs and flings. Naw, as an integral piece to any touring musician’s itinerary, lodging has found a cozy place in the songwriter space, ranging from themes of post-breakup lifelessness (“Heartbreak Hotel”), raunchy encounters (“Chelsea Hotel #2”), and tour torpor (“Holiday Inn”) to whatever the hell […]

Steel Gemini: “Only Freak”

If you’re a fan of that synth pop section of indie electronica in the ilk of Goldfrapp, Grimes, and CHVRCHES…there’s a relatively recent artist right here in town that’ll absolutely scratch that itch. And that’s Steel Gemini, the Austin-based project of singer-songwriter-producer Joy Baldwin. Ever since her December 2022 debut, Baldwin’s been a real joy […]

Jana Mila: “Somebody New”

In an environment as dense and competitive as Americana, a unique set of lens can really help you stand out. But if that habitat appears even remotely unnatural to others, every little bit of local color improves your odds of surviving in the long run. Meet Jana Mila. Mila’s Amsterdam upbringing was spent in the […]

Mikky & The Doom: “Garbage, USA”

In most situations, if you got it, flaunt it. But in an industry that demands infinitely more from your ears than from your eyes, if the hottest person on the planet doesn’t have the pipes to match their looks, they probably don’t have a shot at succeeding as a singer. So let’s talk newcomer Mikky […]

Henry the Archer: “ViolinT”

If this late Spring’s got your spirits shook up and you’re looking for some renewed motivation to tend to your garden (be it literal or figurative), we’ve got a DFW act that’ll make you go hard in the yard.
