  1. Eavesdropping On The Insurrection

    Micah Loewinger produced this story for On the Media (OTM) about the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th of this year. Micah logged into a public channel on Zello, a walkie-talkie type app, and listened to conversations on “Stop the Steal J6,” a channel set up by far-right extremists. As he monitored the channel, the app saved a file to Micah’s computer and he immediately had access to an audio recording of everything that was said. Micah describes the whole process and the value of the recordings on this episode of HowSound.

  2. FROM THE VAULTS: Flying Lotus — Dilla’s Still Here Mix (02.10.06)

    In early 2006, producer James Yancey aka J Dilla passed away unexpectedly. For hip-hop producers the world came to a standstill. No one saw it coming. That week, Dilla had celebrated his 32nd birthday and released his magnum opus, Donuts, to universal acclaim. Just as his life inspired so much great hip-hop, rap and neo-soul music, Dilla’s death inspired artists everywhere to honor his impact with an outpouring of dedications, imitations, and everything in between. For fans, the mourning period seemed to go on without pause, a processional wake that would last an era. Today, the ripples are still being felt, from the worlds of hip-hop to jazz to electronic music.

    The day Dilla passed, Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus spun a special live mix for dublab including hip-hop, rare grooves (some sampled by Dilla), exotic international records, and a few of Dilla’s own tracks. A fitting tribute to a producer who was able to include, in the words of Flying Lotus, so many voices on one record.

  3. Neuromancer (Review by The Worthy House)

    When I first read Neuromancer, a science fiction classic of the modern age, twenty-some years ago, serious people believed that our certain technological future was one of accelerating, boundless plenty. The Singularity was near. Aging and death would soon be conquered; the removal of all limitation would be, within a decade or two, the lot of mankind. Few asked if this would be good. But no matter, since none of this arrived, and it is long since clear none of it will ever arrive, at least in our world as it is now constituted and ruled. Yet, this book, published in 1983, is a fun ride and shows us visions of many things. So let us talk about what is now our present, and what that says about our actual future.

  4. b4s Summer Mix 2014

    "My friend and fellow artist Raphy Griswold and I have had an ongoing mail art / cassette exchange going for the past few years. This month I put together my latest contribution, and decided to digitize it before mailing the original copy. I treated my broke self to a $20 cassette deck at the local thrift spot for my birthday, and this came together pretty quickly after that."

  5. Nap Eyes Mixtape

    With his "It’s Only Life, That’s All" playlist, Nap Eyes guitarist Brad Loughead created a mix "mainly as a way to occupy myself, [to] get lost in beautiful music and turn my brain off." It encompasses familiar themes—"of love, mortality, troubled times…’ya know, the light stuff," but like Nap Eyes’ fourth lp, Snapshot of a Beginner, it achieves a powerful effect by just easing on by.
