Recommended for the car thieves, miscellaneous flockers, getaway drivers, black lunged, paranoid vagrants, gun runners, strudel connoisseurs, wearers of both loose and tight pants, and fans of rap music. Danny and Bronson, beat by Al, from the GTA V soundtrack. Enjoy with a coffee and a danish with a chisel concealed inside it.
Asking music writers to agree on one thing is an impossible task. Some think Young Thug’s otherworldly yelps ruled the summer while others would prefer he return to his home planet. One thing you can depend on is most of these tunes will inspire unrestrained dancing all the way into autumn. See below for our […]
Frank N Beats Mix: 005 August 11, 2014
Aaron Frank wrote this from the 38th parallel north of the Internet. As we work our way through the hottest part of the summer, I’ve included some downtempo tracks on this month’s mix to reflect the oppressive humidity we’ve been experiencing here in the South.

Danny Brown is a lyrical rapper who stays paid. Lyrics can, in fact, lead to paying 100 racks in taxes a year. Danny parties like a Roman senator, but refuses to dumb it down like an American senator. He has stayed hungry and rowdy. See also: this new video from “Attak,” which I already hailed before. […]
Danny Brown is probably the only rapper who sounds right over these type of intergalactic trap seizure beats. America might not have understood Dizzee Rascal, but they are ready for Danny Brown — at least if I am to believe the pandemonium at every festival he plays. The track taken from Rustie’s new album.

Premrock is trying to one-up Joel Embiid’s Twitter feed. Photo by Gianna Leo Falcon. Chinatown will always hold a special place in my heart.

If you’ve the funds or connections necessary to attend any one of the major festivals this year, you’re bound to see (or at least past by) one man alone on […]
Brad Beatson turns down only for freedom.  In the summer, I’m looking to push play on a playlist and let it ride. It’s too beautiful out. And I know it’s inevitable that some drunken fingertips will hijack the music at some point to play what they want to. So this is my grand attempt at […]

Frank N Beats Mix 004 June 30, 2014
Aaron Frank’s girl just wants to party all the time Over the last few years, the rise of EDM has resulted in a widening gap between underground and commercial dance music. As a result, certain hallmarks of the genre, like huge drops and pop-inspired hooks, are being discarded by underground producers in favor of a […]
