French producers Mister Modo & Ugly Mac Beer got together with Harlem based emcee F.Stokes to pay homage to the age old art of crate digging. Shot in the streets of NYC, “Diggin In The Crates” takes us back to a nostalgic golden era sound, complete with scratches and all. Undeniable head bob music.

Thanks to Potholes In My Blog for this one!

New Release: Trackademicks – ‘Cherry 2000′


The Bay Area king of electronic slaps himself, Trackademicks, is in the building and has got something a little different for us this time. The producer is known for production that’s summery, breezy, and always danceable.

On Cherry 2000, the vibe is still electronic, still that incomparable melange of hip hop and synthy 80′s vibes – but this time our pal has slowed it down. What results is some serious sexy time music that you’ve been warned you should only play with the highest of intentions. Ahem.
