another sweet as the scratch spooktacular: footwork, afrobeats, rap, brazilian electronic music, conscious reggae

On Halloween night, the boys got together to share some music for the first time in a few months. We get it going with a Halloween-themed track and video, but delve into protest songs, environmental anthems and a bunch of reggae from all over the world. We talk about our favorite music and music-related people broadcasting on facebook and youtube as well. You'll want to stay til the end for the Evi-Edna Ogholi track, "The World."


War and Keef

This one was a lot of fun to do, just a classic with probably the longest opening set of songs we've had. We dissect the design of Chief Keef's house, see a couple dramatic music videos, listen to TWO South African songs called "Uhuru" and hear some old reggae. All of these songs are really good, we promise.


the new hail

We are joined by Santi to listen to 14(!!) tracks. We each take a turn selecting, and the result is a playlist that's all over the place. As usual, we hear rap from Mali and Baton Rouge, but Santi shakes things up with some Colombian psych rock, cumbia, and more! We talk rapper SEO and how to greet your friends in the age of coronavirus.
