Probcause, Martin Sky 

When: Fri., Feb. 28, 10 p.m. 2014
With his tight, springy flow, the Evanston-reared rapper spends much of his recent mixtape, The Recipe Volume 2, gleefully bouncing off a wide variety of beats—sleek dance pop (“LSD”), lackadaisical boom-bap (“Sleepy Hollow”), even sensual neosoul (“Whiskey on the Rocks”). Probcause has the charisma to carry a mixtape on his own, but he also plays well with others, and The Recipe Volume 2 is packed with drops from local MCs, including Chance, Psalm One, and ShowYouSuck.

MC and producer Martin Sky makes music for kids in tie-dyed bucket hats playing Xbox in basements thick with pot smoke—on his debut mixtape, Time(less), Sky makes it pretty clear he's one of those kids, or at least used to be. His dreamy, gauzy instrumentals and loopy, zonked-out rapping are hypnotizing even if you're stone-cold sober. —Leor Galil, 2013
