All of the goodness


Knxwledge – pushit.

Gonzo Internet beatheads have an affinity for New York goon rap because it’s kind of cool to hear a Funkmaster Flex freestyle over floaty backpacker boom bap and it also probably avoid the “conscious rap” label. Here are choice cuts from Knxwledge’s newest batch, WT?.?PRT10?.?8_. WT.PRT10.8_ by Knxwledge. WT.PRT10.8_ by Knxwledge. WT.PRT10.8_..


Pan Daijing – Exile.

Boss level. Pan Daijing is a Chinese-born, Berlin-based producer with a new EP called A Satin Sight out on Bedouin Records. Pan Daijing – A Satin Sight by Bedouin Records

D/P/I – Escape.

D/P/I (DJ Purple Image) of LA soundtracks an industrial accident. This is the last one I’ll steal from Shapednoise’s Solid Steel mix, to which you should probably listen.


G.H. – Mickey Cosmos.

Niall Kirk of La Casa Tropical – Forgotten Palms.

Episode 140 of the Dream Chimney podcast features Niall Kirk of La Casa Tropical spinning, in his words, “afrobeat, vintage synth funk and lofi psych disco.” A SoundCloud commenter also identifies K. Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas. La Casa Tropical is, per Facebook, a “cultural performance and events space.”

Josh Hey – four gold chains.

The sprawling, Eastern-inflected “Shabba” remix I didn’t know I needed. I’m sure there will be a lot more heat on Josh Hey’s Beat Hotel tape when it drops. Beat Hotel by Josh Hey
