You can't pin down the DMV. While so many other regions have an of-the-moment sound or style that defines their geographic location, the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) has dozens of things going on at once, all moving in different directions and crossing paths in the most surprising of ways.
In hip-hop alone, the region is bustling with disconnected movements, and aside from that there is pop, rock, electronic, and the undefinable all swirling around, drawing in influences from north and south. With so much going on, it can be hard to keep track of, but from the area that brought us Clipse, Beach House, Pharrell, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and Wale, there's so much more to be explored. Here is some new music from the DMV that you should know.
