Growing up, Philadelphia was the home of some of my favorite hip hop. I've made no qualms about calling Schoolly D, 3xDope, Steady B, Cash Money & Marvelous, among other classic Philly acts as some of my favorite in the genre of hip hop. So the city has had soft spot in my heart and will always be a city that I keep close tabs on. The past couple years, the city has started stepping up again and producing some great musicians again. Over the past couple years, we here at WYDU have featured the likes of Has-Lo, Zilla Rocca, Nico the Beast, Small Pro, Fade Money, and Drumz & Llingo have all graced the site. Today's spotlight artist/producer isn't from Philly (Jersey), but reps the city now and carries that Philly torch and sound. Y? Arcka, the spry producer is part of the "new age" producer, that make music that can easily stand on it's on as well as provide some dramatic soundscapes for emcees. Just listening to his instrumental projects, you realize how deep his music is, and just how passionate he is about his music. This is a cat you must hear....

I had to click on this when I saw the unusual name!  He sounds like an interesting artist.  Unfortunately, I can't download anything on the laptop that I'm on right now, but do you have any Youtube videos or soundclips?  If you do, you should totally embed them into your review! :)

Hey Devora, i haven't looked around the net yet for videos or sound bytes, we just did a Artist Spotlight Interview with him on WYDUblog.com. It should be on page one still if you want to scope it out

Oh cool, I checked that out, and clicked on his Myspace page. He's got some pretty cool stuff, and it's totally different that what I expected it to be. It's more like funky new age hip hop! I like it :)

Yeah we really luck out sometimes when it comes to independent artists, its the reason we started the Artist Spotlight!!!
