A bunch of vinyl has been picked up since the last Wax Po session, so be prepared for many treats..
and last but not least, be sure to pick up the latest issue #35 from the shop and grab yourself a $1 off back issue (or two) while they last. The last time I checked (about a year ago), back issue #1 was going for like a hundred bucks..

The Realest? I’m not sure, but is it good, innovative & sincere? A resounding YES!
Brittany Bosco is quickly gaining listeners and comparisons to some of your favorite artists. This is not an easy task, of course, and Brittany deserves these comparisons AND carves her on lane as well. The Spectrum EP flirts with many genres and never chooses a suitor. Brittany’s choral and orchestral training are apparent as her voice ranges from soft and soothing to rough and bluesy. To describe this album, I would have to mention her current major at Savannah College of art & Design:Fashion. Brittany Bosco’s The Spectrum Ep has mad style to spare so make sure you check it out!


I was able to speak with Branden M. Collins (graphic designer) and OferReal? (producer) about their contributions to The Spectrum EP. These two, along with Brittany Bosco, Alex Goose, Kid Syc and Danny! make up TheBigUp! Collective. Check them out now because you’ll definitely be hearing more from them in the future.
