British Invasion 25

Ah yes, the United Kingdom. The British Invasion 25 originated from a themed event put together by Sari and Kayli, where we indulged in a smorgasbord of British cuisine and shared lists of our favorite records from the ongoing British Invasion. Rather than limiting the list to the timespan of the first British Invasion (put … Continue reading British Invasion 25

CHR-008: Scorpio Rising

SA-RA Creative Partners Scorpio Rising Cheap Hotel 2019 SA-RA have long been one of my key musical reference points, even before I started Parallax Moves. If there's one 21st century crew that is my absolute favorite, then it's these guys (the trio of Shafiq Husayn, Om'Mas Keith and Taz Arnold).

25 From 97

A couple weeks ago, Sari, Kayli and I traded lists of our favorite records from 1997 in a New Years Eve extravaganza. Why 1997, you ask? 1997 was without a doubt my favorite year in memory, and its music more than lived up to the times.

Model 500 – Deep Space

An album dropped by Juan Atkins amidst a flurry of activity in 1995, it was released smack in the middle of the nineties and bisecting the decade both literally and metaphorically. Slotting in quite comfortably within the currents of outer space imagery … Continue reading Model 500 – Deep Space

During what's turned out to be an exceptionally busy week, I've been vibing out practically non-stop to Woebot's latest mix: Bands a make her dance.1 The mix's general brief is rapping with instruments inna live band stylee — stretching back through time all the way to the fifties — and it's an absolute burner, packed with incredible music spanning … Continue reading Fall Inna Bassbin

Let Me Ride

So it looks like I've nearly let a month slip by without delivering any goodies for you, and for that I have no apologies to offer (sometimes, reality just comes creeping in). I've got one feature that I'm in the process of putting together on L.A. hip hop, which is really just a little something … Continue reading Let Me Ride
