Chris Daly owns an aquarium in Bavaria While many are quick to assume that the beat scene resides entirely in LA, a growing number of local scenes are springing up across the globe adding their take to the quicksilver genre.  It’s time for me to put you up on  the Betty Ford Boys, arguably the […]
Chris Daly battled Mall Santa with the lyrics from “Christmas Rappin” in 1983. Regardless of your propensity towards being bad or good, Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne don’t judge.  The power couple also known as Tuxedo is playing Santa by sharing a little holiday cheer in the form of some downloadable love.  Here’s their take on […]
Chris Daly can crack crab or lobster  Depending on where you hang your hat in the country, you may well already be through with snow and winter, which is particularly a bitch in light of the fact that winter doesn’t even officially start for another couple of weeks yet.  With all the powder so many […]
Can’t believe Chris Daly used to be Steve Austin on the mic Naturally, all eyes and ears are pretty much focused on the Wu-Tang’s latest opus, A Better Tomorrow, but if old head hip-hop truly is your bag, don’t let the latest single, “The People,” from De La Soul, rap’s true G.O.A.T band, pass you […]

Chris Daly lives, dies, and repeats If you’re a broke ass cat who is into the indie beat scene, there are far worse times to be alive than right now.  In an effort to break through the clutter in an otherwise overcrowded musical landscape, seems like every producer/DJ and their mother are dropping free joints […]
Chris Daly fucks, then he sleeps.   Say whatever else you might be so inclined to about Bonobo, but you certainly can’t say he’s been traveling at less than the speed of sound these days.  Fresh off his 18 month, international “North Borders” tour, he dropped the appropriately named The North Borders Tour – Live, a CD/DVD […]
Chris Daly consults tea leaves before smoking trees. Seriously, somebody needs to tell Open Mike Eagle to take a breather.  Depending on which tea leaves you happen to consult, four out of five leading psychics agree that 2014 will go down in history as HIS year.  With only an album or two even jockeying for position, […]
