I am interviewing the purses of women again and again. These women do not know they are going to be interviewed, so catching them and their purse in their utmost natural presence is very important. I'm excited to learn more about the fashions and styles of women, see how much stuff they carry around, and just how clean or nasty they are. Shall we? Recently, I got to meet some very great people while working and touring with Crypts. One of them is not only the wife of the lead singer, but also my new personal hair stylist. This woman is filled with class and a whole lotta sassafras. She carries a purse bigger than most suitcases. A few weeks ago we drank with a group of friends all over The Hill. I give to you, Reghann and her purse. Reghann, 34. Black leather bag. 12:02am - Unicorn.Radjaw: What kind of purse is that?Reghann: Marc JacobsRadjaw: How long have you had it?Reghann: I don't know, like five years. It's my everything purse.

I am so happy to see this video today. It's been so much fun to share in Linda's vision of Bait Shop opening up very shortly. She has been in the game for some time now, and at the very least, I can say I am jealous for what she does. I look forward to working with her more in the future.

Thanksgiving is over! Christmas is upon us! I decided to make some Christmas cards for such the occasion. Please share these with all of your closest loved ones. Available at Alive and Well, Kaleidoscope Vision and Joe Bar. Thanks and enjoy!
The game begins as Two Chainz is innocently shooting some hoops in his hood, when suddenly his Two Chainz get mysteriously stolen. This takes you on a wonderful 8-bit adventure where the rapper shouts out numerous tag lines while hurdling random obstacles.

Some of you many know my obsession with this man since his Headphone Masterpiece back in 2002. His raw recording style, gorgeous vocals, and simply smart lyrics always kept my ears perked up ("All I need is pussy, give me some religion, a brand new Cadillac, and a winning lotto ticket"). He released his second album this past October, Landing On A Hundred, and I've been digging it a lot lately. This video captures him performing in his best setting, him and his guitar.

I've been listening to a lot of old school rap today thanks to these lost tapes of Marley Marl on WBLS in the mid/late 1980's. It's refreshing to hear cut after cut after cut with no additive bullshit. The commercials them self are a great bonus kicker! DOWNLOAD HERE

Purse Thursday is back! I am interviewing the purses of women again and again. These women do not know they are going to be interviewed, so catching them and their purse in their utmost natural presence is very important. I'm excited to learn more about the fashions and styles of women, see how much stuff they carry around, and just how clean or nasty they are. Shall we? Sadly, one my friends and coworkers has taken a little hiatus from Neumos to go live in West Virginia or somewhere for six weeks. I do hope she returns and finds a job that suits her and all of her dreams. Before she left, I had to take a peak inside her new favorite satchel. Everyone... meet Kate and her purse. Kate, 26. Brown leather satchel. 10:30pm - Moe Bar Kate: Do you have any gum? Radjaw: I have two pieces left, you can have one for a dollar. Kate: It's in my purse let me get it for you. Radjaw: What kind of purse is that? Kate: It's a Coach leather satchel and it is my new favorite! Radjaw: How long have you had it? Kate: Someone left it here about a month ago. Radjaw: So you took someone else's purse from lost & found? Kate: Well, not exactly.. It was a gear bag for someone and they left it behind. After a while, nobody claimed it and I figured it was some band travelling on tour. It looked so good on me, I snatched it up! Radjaw: Can we take a look inside? Kate: Uhh.. okay!? Voter registration card Driver test notes Radjaw: You don't have a license? Kate: I do, it's from a while ago. A package of AAA batteries with no batteries inside 2 single dollar bills Lip balm Headphones Health insurance card Kate: That's my old roommate's card. Radjaw: Why do you have that? Kate: I.. don't.. know.. A few pens Decibel staff all access pass Wallet Box of to go food, probably Poquito's Cell phone Glow bracelet without any glow Radjaw: There sure is a lot of garbage in here! Kate: I know, it's my work bag! Hush! Red glitter nail polish A bunch of random keys A mirror Gum Kate: Oh! I didn't know I had any gum in here until I got to the bottom. Macbook Pro 9 more single dollar bills Mood ring, blue Bottle of water Radjaw: You should probably empty the purse out and throw some of the garbage away. Kate: But, I might need some of it! Radjaw: Riiiight.

Make sure to watch this on 1080p and full size. This shit is an absolute gorgeous trip. Seattle experimental electronic hip-hop band Kingdom Crumbs team up with Israeli artist Ori Toor to create a beautifully animated spiritual adventure pondering the idea of collective consciousness and the true nature of our reality.
West Philly homie, DJ Apt One, has a new EP out and this one has been a long time coming. "The title track was originally on DJ Sabo and Sol Selectas’ “Moombahton Massive” Vol. 3, which was released as promo for a Moombahton Massive event at SXSW in 2011. Ultimately, I built a number of tunes in a similar style as an off-shoot of my work with Gregor Salto’s label Downpitch and the B-Side “Red Meat” was born. I remixed both tunes myself, and my good buddies lil’dave (Illvibe) and Vjuan Allure lent remixes as well. The result is more or less an afro-latin styled Moombahton record – I played lots of live instruments- something that really hasn’t been done in Moombahton’s short history."

New track by Kate. She is going to cut your head off. She plays Bumbershoot this Sunday September 2nd at 1:30pm on The Promenade stage. "Zombie" was created the morning after a vivid dream - Kate was held captive in a 1960's ranch-style house in upstate New York, surrounded by fields and cliffs full of fossils. Her captors trained her in the art of the samurai sword so that she could help exterminate the hordes of zombies that rose up from the tall grass at dusk. The inevitability of sunset and the fury of battle inform this dreamy, ominous and bloodthirsty glimpse into Kate's subconscious. Production, Beats and Lyrics by Katie Kate Recorded and Mixed at Studio Nels, Seattle by Charlie Smith Executive Producer - Charlie Smith

New remix album from Don't Talk To The Cops! See DtttC! at Bumbershoot on Saturday, 1pm @ Fisher Green! The remixers, in order of appearance: Rubicon 7 Swag Treated Treated Swag (Rubicon 7 remix) (Trashed Contest Winner!) Rubicon 7 is the creative hybrid of Elizabeth Thompson’s cutting-edge DJ sensibilities together with the production and composition of the classically trained Brandon Scott. Their unique collaboration results in an unmistakable style that blurs the lines around the typical genres of electronic dance music. Wolf Couture Big Ass Head (Wolf Couture remix) Wolf Couture is a creation of Kevin Ross (a.k.a. DJ Teenwolf) the founder and former dj/producer/songwriter for the critically-panned Brooklyn band, Ninjasonik. Inspired by a mix of Based God rants, internet memes and an all-out love/hate relationship with the current state of “hip-pop” culture, Wolf Couture bravely makes music that has been known to irritate/entertain listeners through its deranged use of repetitive lyrics and bizarre concepts. The Major Cities Tip Toe Right By Em (tmc remix) The Major Cities is the solo musical project of Joshua Rule. Keyboard Kid Someday I’m Gonna Be Rich (XXX Bvsed Mix – Keyboard Kid x DtttC!) KEYBOARD KID IS A MUSIC PRODUCER FROM SEATTLE,WA. MAIN PRODUCER OF LIL B THE BASEDGOD KNOWN FOR MY VERY UNIQUE AND FUTURISTIC SPIN ON HIP-HOP AND BEING A PIONEER PRODUCER FOR LIL B’s BASED MOVEMENT. ALSO Featured On Websites Like TheFader.com, Grammy.com, ComplexMag.com, Mishka n More! Mash Hall Swag Treated Treated Swag (MASH HALL LOVE FAMILY THICKER THAN BLOOD remix) MASH HALL LOVE FAMILY THICKER THAN BLOOD Astronomar Girls Buy Me Drinks (Astronomar remix) Without exaggeration, Astronomar is one of the most exciting new producers out there. There’s an intangible uniqueness to everything he does, and a strong hip-hop influence which give his tracks a hardcore, but incredibly fun vibe. Since his first release, Had To Move On, on Neoteric’s Turned On Vol.2 last summer, he’s released on Mad Decent imprint Jeffrees, and Top Billin’ (Style of Eye proclaimed his release the best ever from the label). The biggest names, from Diplo to Crookers to A-trak, have supported his tracks nightly, while we wait for the rest of the world to catch on. This is that next shit. djblesOne Goin Back To Chicago (djblesOne STR8 88 remix) djblesOne STR8 88 remix taking “I’m Going Back To Chicago” way back to 88 & the Chicago Underground. Hip House forever, shout out to Fast Eddie. Suspence I Like Nerds (Suspence remix) Former DJ & Producer for The Saturday Knights OCnotes Tattoo My Name (OCnotes atlantis lounge remix) OCnotes (born Otis Calvin III on June 27, 1985) in Tucson, Arizona, is a Seattle-based DJ, multi-instrumentalist (12), songwriter, film maker, and music producer.

Diplo debuts a video for his track “Set it Off,” a collaboration between Diplo and Lazerdisck Party Sex. It’s definitely NSFW and set in a strip club in space with strippers cascading the screen on a never-ending stripper pole. Regardless, I think it was tastefully done. Ha! Sheesh..
