"Cairoglyphs is the electronic brainchild of Kansas City based hip-hop artist/producer Ryan Forest. His debut EP, "The Veil" has just been released on Russian Winter Records. Cairoglyphs features retro-futuristic soundscapes that are underlined by a dark introspective narrative. "The Veil" EP serves up a sophisticated blend of deep house and rap, taking dance based hip-hop to new heights."

Check out Cairoglyph's Facebook, BandCamp and SoundCloud. Electronic/Psychedelic/Hip-Hop in the vein of Earl Sweatshirt, Run The Jewels, Busdriver and Kendrick Lamar. I want to thank Ryan Forest (AKA Cairoglyphs) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Shout out to Pittsburgh natives Wiz Khalifa and Mack Miller for holding it down for rap music.

Thanks, Ryan. Wiz and Mac are definitely putting Pittsburgh rap on the national map. Also, that Bam Margera 'concert' sounds absolutely unbearable.
