The Kansas City Royals Ain't Dead In 2016, Not In August Anyway
August 25, 2016
As a baseball person, my gut instinct wanted me to believe that the Royals would not give up on the season at the All-Star break. They don't roll over and play dead on the field, so why would they do that off the field? Dayton Moore and the Royals have come much too far...
Rich The Factor Will Be In The Next Print Issue of Demencha Magazine
August 4, 2016
As Editor-in-Chief at Demencha Magazine, I've been trying to get an interview with Kansas City rap legend, icon and street king in his own right, Rich The Factor, for over a decade. All of the anticipation, the wishing, waiting, and asking around came to a screeching halt two nights ago in downtown Kansas...

Demencha Magazine Is Now Seeking Visual Artists, Photographers For New Print Issue
July 26, 2016
As EIC here at Demencha, I believe that a lot has changed in the print magazine industry since we began printing physical magazine copies around 2008. People aren't reading in print as much, and when they do want to read, they're generally getting material from a tablet, phone or computer. Duh. This is 2016,...

Info Gates just released a brand new album on 8/16. That’s no coincidence. As far as the Kansas City hip hop climate goes, Info Gates is probably painting the best picture of the scene via rap vocals, than anyone else. Similar to […]
“La rent does not want me to look at porn”. Puppets, punk riffs and candid but light-hearted dialogues about sex and romance litter David Liebe Hart’s content. Hart uses puppets to confront jarring or uncomfortable parts of today’s culture; it’s a playfully […]
Chicago-based footwork proudcer and Teklife dude, DJ Earl, has a brand new release out. It’s called Open Your Eyes, and it contains eight tracks of the no-nonsense footwork sound that we’ve come to love here in Kansas City area venues as well. […]
As Editor-in-Chief at Demencha, I had the opportunity to talk with Chris Haghirian on 90.9 The Bridge FM last Tuesday. It was a pleasure, as a matter of fact it was probably the best radio experience I’ve had thus far. I was […]
