Kil Ripkin, "Not You"

Props due to the fine lads at Switchblade Comb for putting me onto this. I agree whole-heartedly with Mojo Marshall that this reminds me of a young Common [Sense]. Perfectly matched music video produced by Science Projects.

Nosaj Thing, "Coat of Arms"

I can't believe it's taken me this long to post something about Nosaj Thing. He opened for the XX at the Varsity Theater back in April with a unique blend of head-nodding, downtempo, stuttering breakbeats and some danceable glitch-y electronica. His range and style are very reminiscent of Minnehappiness-born Mux Mool, now in Brooklyn repping Ghostly.

This video captures the track and style perfectly from the brooding subject matter, the gray palette, the quick edits, the ghostly layers and a hint of the future. Shot and edited by Roland Von Tessin.

Pay Dues vol. 2

As much as I love the opportunities that DJ'ing with digital software like Serato provides, NOTHING is as rewarding as DJ'ing with vinyl. Whether it's at home or at a gig, I play vinyl as much as I can. Sadly, most people don't hear me play from my vinyl collection. Nowadays, party-goers expect a wide variety of the latest music and I'm forced to play music via my computer at peak hour. Of course I can't share the sound quality of vinyl via the internet, but I can share a live mix I recorded with all vinyl. If you like what you hear, get to the Nomad early on Tuesdays for Out of the Box and catch me playing sweet sweet wax.

Out of the Box tuesdays!

We start kindling the fire starting at 9 with all of those underground hip-hop, R&B and funk joints you crave. The Nomad gets stoked with some heavier jams until it's ablaze by 12:30. As always, no cover, 21+, 2 patios and 241's after midnight (Nomad World Pub).

Get there early for an all-vinyl, all-dope set by yours truly. Stay until the end as That Dude Trey and I do what we do best: tag-teaming all night to keep it fresh and hot!
