Artist Interviews Daydream Review & Smooth Rogers Interview

Earlier in 2022, Zac Bron of Smooth Rogers remixed one of the songs off of Chicago local psychedelic rock band Daydream Review's self-titled EP. The remix of "Yesterday and Tomorrow" brought out some fun and funky space disco and was released as a separate single. Daydream Review's Elijah Montez and Zach are long-time collaborators in various projects, and Features Co-Director Mick R caught up with both of them to talk about their most recent single and get some insights into how they work together. 

Both Daydream Review's self-titled EP and the "Yesterday and Tomorrow" remix single were self-released via Bandcamp. 

"The way that I talk about the EP with other people is each song is almost like trying on different hats... [and] Zach has a really great expertise in making things sound funky almost like without even trying." - Elijah Montez

Production by Mick R.

Artist Interviews Khaliyah X Interview

This week, Features contributor Matty G speaks with Chicago-based songstress Khaliyah X. They discuss her new EP Just For the Summer and how recording it during the winter and spring kept her going through the cold weather, her musical influences and inspirations, her interests in healing and herbalism, and her favorite live performance experiences thus far. 

"There's nothing you have to explain to anyone, just believe in yourself and find people who believe in you and create the room that you want to be in. If you have something to say, if you have a gift, you didn't get that gift for no reason. It was given to you to share with the world, so share it." - Khaliyah X
