Aint No Fishbowls 3. As promised, featuring artist that haven’t been on the series before. This week: Magna Media’s Trek Manifest and Cleveland native Joey Aich, the Columbus legend P Blackk, west-side rapper BrycBurk, Rawest 4mation’s Dirty Quan Geno, and Mouf’s Zac Fresh.
In case you missed it the concept for “Aint No Fishbowls”, here’s an excerpt from the first one.
The full thread is at the bottom of this article, but the gist is that sometimes, we will swim around in the same spaces and get sucked into groupthink. Always listening to the same artist over and over, we not only stop branching out to hear new music, we also will get clouded in perspective. We start to think the artist we’re listening to, are the only ones worth listening to, which is obviously not true.
The solution for me was to create a weekly playlist to hold myself accountable. So, every Friday morning, I’ll put out an “Aint No Fishbowls” playlist. My rule is, I can’t use the same artist more than frequently than once every three weeks, but I’m going to try to listen to as much new music as possible across the board. I don’t care how many plays the songs may have. I’ma just care if it sounds good to my ears or not.

AGAIN. Anybody who says Columbus doesn’t have a particular sound just isn’t listening. Cause I definitely hear a specific aesthetic across all the songs.
Be back next week, writing from another fishbowl.
