Episode 110 with guests Count Bass D and Platurn & Edgewize

We are back with a double dose of DBRP. Our entire region of the Bay Area in California is under “shelter in place” orders so we do a quick check-in to see how people are passing the time and staying sane in these crazy times. Then we have a great and frankly inspiring interview with Count Bass D, whose debut album came out 25 years ago and his latest album CBD came out last week. The Count discusses his life growing up playing in church bands, tells great stories about collaborating with MFDOOM, and being treated as a “guest” in hip-hop culture. CBD is full of life and ready to assert himself as one of the only members of his generation still making waves in the culture.

Next up we have a special in-studio interview with Platurn & Edgewize, a DJ?MC duo with a new EP called Apatheater on Needle To The Groove Entertainment (full disclosure, Dave is a partner in the label). They took hip-hop back to the essence of dope beats and dope rhymes with no frills but a modern sensibility on the new project and we were happy to have them on. As you can imagine, it’s very hard to promote a record in the current environment and we are happy to provide artists on our wavelength with the opportunity. All beats on this episode except our theme song were produced by DJ Platurn!

Episode 109- Building Yourself with guest Slug of Atmosphere

We are very excited to welcome this week’s guest, Slug of Atmosphere. Atmosphere is a beloved indie hip-hop institution, with a wide range of projects and a reputation as one of the best live acts in hip-hop. On this week’s show we are joined by their frontman Slug (we interviewed producer Ant on episode DBRP 29) about his life and career, touching a broad range of subjects such as balancing touring with family life, Eyedea’s neck muscles, intense fan interactions, and much much more. This is one of our favorite interviews to appear on the show, we sincerely hope that you enjoy it. As always our theme music is supplied by friend of the program DJ Albert Jenkins.
