Thanks to The Liberator for turning me onto this tune today. ABRA is an Atlanta-based R&B artist, but whomever is producing her stuff is really in-tuned to that UK Garage shuffle. One of the more subtle aspects of this tune is the sub-bass…it took me a couple of listens before I really caught it. This […]
One of my favorite albums in the last few years was Hybrid Mind’s Mountains from 2013. I fell off their recent output through no fault of their own, but I’m really excited about the impending release of their new work, Elements. As such, they’ve released a video for the single Brighter Day featuring vocalist Charlotte […]
I was just revisiting this tune from the Luke Cage Soundtrack. It’s a big one.

The Methlab Agency (a record label, artists collective, DJ agency, event promoter, and PR group) are releasing a showcase mix that represents the label and artist’s work. Included in the mix are […]

After I moved back to Texas in 2002, I was feeling especially disheartened by the drum & bass scene. Since I originally […]
I’m on that easy vibe dub tip today. Thank you, Gilles Peterson.
RIP Mark Goodings. You made beautiful music.
I’ve watched Kate McKinnon sing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah as Hillary Clinton on Saturday Night Live a dozen times. It’s really good.
