Episode 58- Skateboard C with guests Controller 7 and Jose Rojo

The first segment this week is an interview with reclusive producer Controller 7, a unique talent who may be best known for his work with the Anticon collective in the early 200s but has steadily released dark instrumental projects, mixes, and re-mixes for the last two decades on a variety on influential labels and on his own. We are huge fans of his music, and not just because we come from the same hometown. All of the beats heard on today’s show are his productions, so if you like what you hear make sure to visit https://controller7.bandcamp.com/

The second segment is Nate’s attempt at an NPR style audio essay on how skateboarding, music (especially underground hip-hop) and film intersect as well as a brief chat with pro skateboarder Jose Rojo.

Episode 57- Grime 101 with guest Son Raw

We’re taking a slightly different approach this week. We asked writer, producer, and Grime aficionado Son Raw to join us for the full hour to lead us through the development of the hip-hop adjacent UK-based genre. We laughed, we learned, nodded our heads.
