Late pass?

How did I sleep on these dudes for so long? I'll definitely be at the next show here in Seattle. Can I get a late pass on this one? If you don't know about Das Racist, do what I did and listen to some of these tunes......

Shorthand's take on Hi-Life Soundsystem

The latest single "Bounce" from Hi-Life Soundsystem ft. The SOTA crew dropped today over at the Members Only blog. Not much to say besides this tune goes hard! Not only is it a free download but it comes packed with the Shorthand remix of "Death of The Party" + the instrumental for dj's and aspiring mc's! I've posted it below for easy listening, but you still gotta go get it over at!

Health, Wealth, Success & Happiness : MOD SUN x JCW

On the 24th day of December, in the year 2010, the world was exposed to this little gem of an album from MOD SUN and JCW. A plethora of beats on this album are the responsibility of JCW (James Chase Wilcox). MOD SUN throws in some production flavor, as well as a thread of lyrical genius throughout the track list. These dudes have done something really right here, taking hiphop back to sample-based underground goodness. Need I say more? Just go get it!

Zoo York Mixtape

one of the rawest skate videos ever with an even rawer soundtrack

Neo at it again

With Love Action, Neoteric has edited through his collection of music, picked out his favourite songs from the past, revived them and made them new again. “Songwriting and melody take center stage with this mix. I wanted to share these songs I love but rarely get to play in a club. I’ve included many edits by friends of mine that put a new twist on an old classic.” Seems like a fitting sentiment for these days.
