I’ve been a huge instrumental hip hop fan ever since Dj Shadow dropped Endtroducing in 1996. In our latest podcast episode I get to geek out and showcase my hobby by playing some of my favorite, hidden gems. Skip ahead to 37:00, try to ignore the Swedish-English accent and listen to four 7″ cuts from Memphix, Bully Records and Heardrums Records. There’s much more than just DJ Shadow and J Dilla out there to discover. You’re welcome to check out my mixtapes as a starting point.
The episode also includes Kanye West new music, Drake’s Hotline Bling video, Adele’s comeback and modern classical music from Erased Tapes Michael Price. There’s even an an unreleased FOALS track lurking around. You might notice that I mention scene releases, and the MP3 scene. More on this soon!
