A Boom-Bap Continuum mixed by Clockwork, 2tall & Kyper
Practically exhaustive documentation of post-2k hip-hop from the perspective of the beatsmith, the tracklist of this 80-minute mix needs to be seen or (better yet heard) to be believed.
The ten sections (1 for each year), feature everyone worth mentioning - from Premier and Pete Rock to Dilla to Prefuse 73; from Def Jux to London Grime/Dubstep to the latest in LA wonk - and are cut up with exclusive interview dialog from the the producers themselves (Madlib talking about the birth of Quasimoto for example).

Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
