  • Light Echo – Wallflower Voices

    By Phil on October 29, 2013
      I love watching you, I love watching you… Light Echo might be one of the more appropriately named artists in SF right now. His productions are soft, smooth, and evoke that same feeling you get when the early morning sun pokes through the trees and breaks the fog and haze, but through sound. One of my absolute favorite things […]
  • Jim-E Stack – Is It Me

    By Phil on October 8, 2013
    Jim-E Stack hasn’t given us much since ‘Bubble Boy’, a manic, unclassifiable dance track that fit quite nicely with the Body High crew.

    By Phil on August 16, 2013
    MF DOOM’s pre-disposition to collab projects has always resulted in wonderfully absurd mixtapes and records. His latest, JJ DOOM, a project with Jneiro Jarel, has received a huge amount of positive praise for their debut record Keys to the Kuffs since it was released in August of last year. This year, the duo have released the ‘Butter’ version of the record, featuring […]
