A Streetcar Named PCC 4001

the flanged metal rings of the wheels on an old streetcar are as much an influence on electro as sci-fi, the 8o8 cowbell, Kraftwerk, vocoders, skittering hi hats , booming bass and Bambaattaa. the clattering of the tracks are hypnotic rhythms for the weary returning home, a prototype for mechanized urban tribal soul.

Can’t Nothing Be Love But Love

at least 50% of all recorded music is about “love”, so when asked to make a mix on this theme i was truly daunted. here’s my attempt to tell a story about “love” with words and music. I hope you love it.

Light Up

this exploration of millennial hip hop concludes by dragging us out of the dark and into the light, showing us the only way to find satisfaction is by doing it yourself. these last two mixes are a snapshot of where independent hip hop was at 10 years ago… i wonder where it will be 10 years from now?
