Episode 185- Road Warriors with guests Boom Bap Project

If you’ve been a hip-hop fan long enough, you’ve been to a few wack shows. Maybe it was too many dudes on stage. Maybe the artist was beefing with the sound man. Maybe someone was rapping over their own vocals. Maybe somebody got too drunk. It happens. However, with the right perspective, you don’t have to let it ruin your night. Our three hosts recall less-than-stellar shows as both fans and performers in the first segment. Next up we have an interview with Karim aka Nightclubber Lang and Destro from Seattle’s Boom Bap Project. These guys are underground hip-hop mainstays, having crossed the continent multiple times, earning themselves a reputation as very reliable live performers. They also have a new album out called Return Flight, make sure to check that out. Beats this week were submitted by Jake Lionheart. We also appreciate SKECH185 for providing our first ever drop! DBRP is a message in a bottle that somehow reached the shore of Stony Island Audio.

Episode 184- Record Store Chronicles with guest DJ Format

This week our attention turns to record stores, record collecting, and the art of the come-up. Dave, Demone & Nate share a few digging stories, talk about the state of the record collecting game, and discuss the limits of sample snitching in hip-hop media. After that we have a lovely chat with consummate b-boy, gifted producer and recording artist DJ Format. We have been fans of Format’s records and mixes for many years, so we are pleased to welcome him to the show to talk about his career, in particular his excellent recent release, the somewhat subdued and psych-influenced Devil’s Workshop. DBRP was scooped out of the podcast dollar bin by the keen collectors at Stony Island Audio.
