guidance_coverThis is my first post of 2013. Doubt anyone’s keeping track.

Let’s start things off right. Here’s a short mix I made. Enjoy.





Here’s a remix/mash-up I made of an old Tech N9ne a capella (’97’s Big Bad Wolf) over an edit of Diplo’s remix of Jackie Chain’s “Rollin'”. Let it get all up in your cavities. Happy Halloween!



Pay your respects with this summer brewed mix I’ve been working on. The mixing is rough but the music is smooth so hopefully it’s enjoyable. Only 1o more days until she’s laid to rest.

Somebody, MN

Atmosphere – Somebody, MN feat. Kill The Vultures, Big Quarters & MaLLY

This is one of the best songs I’ve heard Slug rap on in awhile. In fact, every verse on this track is good. Listening to Minnesota hip hop in the middle of Winter makes me feel all nostalgic.

Sounds of Summer: Sunshine

Atmosphere – Sunshine

This song has been a staple of every summer playlist I’ve made since the summer of ’07. This year is no exception. Buy the track on iTunes or pick up the EP here.

Hail Mary Mallon

Hail Mary Mallon – Garfield

So good to hear some new Aesop Rock. Check out the new album Are You Gonna Eat That? by the new group Hail Mary Mallon (Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz) out now on Rhymesayers.

Long Burn The Fire

Beastie Boys – Long Burn the Fire

As predicted, the new Beastie Boys album is fucking fresh. Apparently it was leaked over the weekend so they decided to go ahead and stream the whole thing on their website. Check it out before you buy it.

Say It

Beastie Boys – Say It

Judging from the first few tracks that have been released from Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, not to mention the kick ass video, I think the new Beastie Boys album is going to be pretty dope. Buy it May 3rd.
