Brad Beatson can give it to you but whatcha gon’ do with it? I’ve got this image of everybody standing on the beach somewhere, and there’s this festival on the beach and everyone’s having a really great time. There’s like people surfing, sharks in the ocean, police cars are like pulling up on the beach. […]
I arrived at The Mercury Lounge on Sunday while JUNGLE. was conducting their soundcheck. T and J flew in from London the day before with their 3 band mates, sound engineer and manager, after completing a tour-leg opening for HAIM. Their first U.S. show was a few hours after landing, and they brought an energy […]
JUNGLE.’s Masterful Groove February 20, 2014
 Brad Beatson has his own line of shoes and you didn’t even know it.  Little has changed with Jungle since we named their EP, The Heat, #40 on our best albums of 2013 list.

Son Raw is Sach O for those who don’t know. Summer Jamz is an ever-changing experience for me. When I dropped my first mix in the series way back in 2008, I was traveling the South-Asian seas and decided to send something in a whim because I hadn’t done any music writing in 6 months. […]
Part 2 brought to you by Son Raw and the healthy looking folks at DMZ. 10 – Doctor P – Sweet Shop (Circus) Much to the anger of purists, Doctor P’s Sweetshop finally removed any trace of bass from genre’s mutating, squelchy synth leads, transforming what was once “wobble” into pure screeching aggression. Paired with […]

The bookmark folder is your friend. Rarely wandering into the […]
