We were treated to spirited instudio performances by Ethel Cee and Reef the Lost Cauze, who collaborated with a live band, and Peedi Crakk, who performed with a DJ. In addition, Philly Music Mag’s DJ Afrodjiak conducted insightful interviews with each of the artists. Watch the videos below, and download mp3s of Reef’s session here, and Ethel Cee’s here.

In this week’s Key Studio Session, presented in collaboration with Philly Music Mag, we spotlight Philadelpiha powerhouse rappper Reef the Lost Cauze. This video shoot was his first time performing with live musicians – PMM-curated house band featuring Elliot “El Smooth” Garland (keys), Charlie “Chaz Patz” Patierno (drums) and Rhodney “Rah M. Sungee” Miller (bass) – and the resulting set is electrifying. Check out the video below to see Reef perform three songs and talk about his music – from using hiphop as a means of channeling anger, to making a living out of being an MC – and download the three songs, engineered by WXPN’s Chris Williams. And catch Reef the Lost Cauze on Thursday, October 11, at the Balcony bar at The Trocadero.
