United by a shared inspiration from Sun-Ra and innovative electronic music of all kinds, Saturn Never Sleeps is a new project from King Britt and Rucyl. Those familiar with either member will know that a long-standing straddling of the lines between hip-hop, soul, jazz, and far-out experimentation is part of their collective history. With a debut album Yesterday’s Machine on the way, the duo has been paying visits to forward minded communities of music fans across the planet. They hit Low End Theory this week in LA, and on July 30th they’ll be performing alongside Teebs at Alpha Pup NYC at The Knitting Factory, which is quickly shaping up to be a meeting place for beat heads of taste and distinction. The group has also been kind enough put together an exclusive mix for Worldwide Smash, which we think makes a pretty clear statement ab0ut their artistic vantage point. Listen in tonight at midnight EST for the mix, and grab tickets to see them do their thing at Alpha Pup NYC here. Continue reading
Nick Hook is that dude. El-P calls him a “ginger king.” He’s probably an easy contender for mayor of the East Village. He’s also involved in so much different cool shit, it’s kind of staggering. From his group Cubic Zirconia which will be releasing their debut full length late this year on Fools Gold, to playing in the live backing bands for Drop The Lime & El-P, to his Nextah party w/ Michna to his DJ gigs all over the place, it’s probably safe to say dude doesn’t catch too many z’s. Last time I saw him spin he played everything from Lunice to Suzanne Vega, so yeah, it’s going to be like that. Check the below, which he put together to head out west to perform at the Do-Over & elsewhere for a taste of the flavor.
This weekend is going to be something special. As a California transplant, I have a lot of love for West Coast hip-hop. I also have a lot of love for the great tradition of NYC day parties. So we’re combining the two for an afternoon jump off with two excellent CA-bred DJs joining me on the decks: DJ Eleven of The Rub and my girl DJ Dopeshoes & co-presented with the good folks at Couch Sessions. We’ll have carne asada and other Baja-style food on the grill, a ballin-ass backyard setting, and drink specials before four. Whether you’re a native East Coaster or throwing up a W, come through and party with us! Check the all West Coast mix from Eleven below and get hype!
San Francisco’s Comma has just released the Colortronics EP (on limited purple cassette, no less) on Frite Nite this week, which is also home to Worldwide Smash favorites Salva, NastyNasty, Epcot & others. We’ve been loving “Ken Griffey Jr.” and “Mezcal Hologram,” and to celebrate the EP release, Comma has put together an awesome guest mix for the radio show featuring some material from the new record, tracks his crew of production affiliates, and a tasters choice selection of heavy beats and juked-up bass bombs. Tune in at midnight EST tonight on East Village Radio to check out the mix. If you need any extra incentive, check out Om Unit’s remix of “Mezcal Hologram” courtesy of Fact Magazine. Continue reading
There’s a bit of Brooklyn in almost every aspect of the Tropicaaliyah project. Brooklyn DJs introduced me to the global bass sounds that inspired the production. My co-workers and colleagues in the borough helped me mix and master it. And … Continue reading
January marked the one year anniversary of Worldwide Smash, and you know we had to celebrate. I put together a line-up of some of my favorite guests on the show from the last year, and got a crew together at … Continue reading
The other day I saw the Ninja Tune 10 year anniversary box set on a friend’s book shelf, and realized that it feels like only a couple of years ago that it was released. With the 20 year collection sitting … Continue reading
I liked this one so much I played two of the tracks on the show tonight. Somebody get Keak or Ya Boy on one of these post haste!
Jubilee grew up in South Florida and her obsession with late night club music was powered by Miami bass, breaks and grime. She was a dedicated listener to local electro DJs on the radio, and eventually headed to New York … Continue reading
