I'm Still Alive!

Moving houses, no Internet, a lack of motivation for blog updating. All rolled into one burrito of sloth equals five months of no updates.

The show is still on! Updates coming soon!

Some classic Talib Kweli and Mos Def on this week's show. Talib is the man, simply for the fact that he dropped this line in Respiration: "It's a paradox we call reality. So keepin it real will make you casualty of abnormal normality." In terms of this track, Hi-Tek creates one of the most laid back beats ever in 2000 Seasons, piano loop with snap-crackle of the record it is from laid on low volume under the heavy snare hit and background ambient sound- just beautiful.

Anyway here's a link to the tracks from today:

Check out Montreal's Hatchmatik. Just do it.

I just realized that this past week's show had a ton of old mainstream classics. Nothing better than "The Blast", I probably have a groove in my Reflection Eternal/Train of Thought CD where that track is.

Edgar Allen Floe??

Yes the Justus League member has far and away the best stage name I've personally ever laid eyes upon. I played some of his songs just to make sure that I wasn't dreaming and it turned out they were for the most part complete bangers so not only does the man have a superb name but the beats are 9th and the lyrics are fire. WOO.
