Aesop Rock interview

Aesop Rock interview »

BMX photography by Kaintero »

We first spotted Kai Kuusisto (aka Kaintero) on Flickr a few months ago. His photos stood out from the crowd with those ultra tweaked airs, the great people portraits and the feeling of fun oozing out of every shot.
We hooked up with Kai to check out and talk about his ultra-dope photography…

Crillix interview & mp3 download

Crillix interview & mp3 download »

On one of the many Delarge crew outings into the vastness of Brighton’s gig land, we were stopped in our tracks and found ourselves immersed in the sounds of an artist called Crillix. A live show incorporating guitar, samplers and loop stations to create electronic cinematic sounds peppered with heavy hand made beats was enough [...]

Take two different kinds of moonshine rum (one dark & spicy, one white), lemons, limes and fresh coconut milk, and mix them up nice and strong. Sip it in the heat of a Caribbean night then skank, rude-boy, skank.
The purple drank of 50s and 60s Jamaica was called Rude to Your Parents. You can draw [...]

Nas: The world was yours

Nas: The world was yours »

Driving home yesterday I saw a plastic water bottle in the gutter. It was half-full of what looked like piss. Two things struck me. Firstly, it’s not the first time that I’ve seen a bottle of piss on the side of the road. Secondly, there is something inherently depressing about looking at a bottle [...]

El-P, Ready for Bed

El-P, Ready for Bed »

“We should enjoy America as we want to enjoy it” screeched the simian overlord as he stood in the historical shadow of the crumbling twin towers. “Them folks” hate us and everything we stand for. “Go to Disney World” he jabbered.

The administration has offered up myriad PR clangers as fodder for the keener satirist – [...]

Cage barked but the facts stayed quarantined in Kennelz

Cage barked but the facts stayed quarantined in Kennelz »

Last Monday I joined the shrinking audience of the hand-wringing, the outraged and the desperately-seeking-quality-programming in watching BBC1’s Panorama. In spite of the Corporation’s attempts to obliterate one of a hand-full of shows that justify the legalised extortion of the TV license – 27 minutes of surprisingly decent output still managed to find a voice.

Best of the beats

Our pick of the best podcasts:

  • The Beat Magistral (Con Anima) (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    A massive deep dark flowing mix by Dj Heisa. A beautiful trip through abstract hip hop, jazz, classical and folk music. This man makes classical, jazz and folk music sounds like hip hop. Tracklist at http://bit.ly/1NmgzU »
  • D-Styles and The Glitch Mob (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    Another Low End Theory podcast - this one is just amazing! One of the best scratch DJs on the planet backed with the Glitch Mob. Beats are huge, bass looooow and you'll love it. Heavy head nod beats sprinkled with some classic hip hop tracks. A great example of how the LA beat scene is flying. »
  • Glitch Mob mix for XLR8R (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    "Long before the LA beat scene threatened to take over the pages of XLR8R, The Glitch Mob was turning heads with its party-starting and hip-hop-informed take on bass music. Now, on the heels of their debut album, Drink the Sea, Ooah, Boreta, and edIT have moved beyond the confines of their Southern California stomping grounds and taken their low-end rumblings to the masses. Fresh off a massive US tour, the boys put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast, right before they hit the road again for another lengthy run of dates." Link: http://dlrg.co.uk/xl-gm »
