    Fireworks in the Hood

    Fireworks in the Hood

    It's been a minute. Happy New Year. It's snowing outside. It's cold in New York. So you know what that means, it's time to release another new episode of "Sounds of the City". This summer I went back to my old neighborhood in Southside Jamaica, Queens to record the fireworks. I recorded about four hours of the festivities that night, and then edited it down into a nice 25.
    It's not boom, boom, boom consecutively throughout the whole episode but it is s an orchestration.
    If you really want to get into this episode, I highly suggest you go somewhere quiet. Close your eyes, put on some headphones and let your imagination be your guide.
    I'm out of here. I love y'all. Peace.
    -Amon

Deft Rap Sessions

Amon possesses a very unique and magical ability to create a certain mood in these brilliant conversations where people want to open up, and want to show him things. He’s not pulling things out of them w clever questions, it’s about a certain tone!

Sunday Cigar and more!

Started listening to this cause of the Sunday Cigar series and stuck around for the amazing content. I really enjoy the Sunday Cigar series because I got to know Amon and Juan’s personalities through the laidback format. Their chemistry and stories are alway engaging. I come away from episode a little bit more hyped and informed about cigars. If you’re looking for 2 genuine dudes just mixing it up and telling stories, look no further!

The NYC we love

Loved the episode with Tommy, who started a business during the pandemic. Great interview that covered a lot in just 20 minutes!
