mixtape

Starting early this past summer, Raekwon figured out for us that #TBT can mean more than posting old acne-scarred photos of prom night. Since then, vintage soul and R&B jams got a Raekwon weekly redo thanks to a little Wu-spiration. The “Throwback-Thursday/TBT” mixes included new flows over the likes of many classics from the Gap Band, the Isley Brothers and The Spinners, […]


God bless the interwebs. Really, every once in awhile something so awesome pops up on these interconnected series of tubes that you just marvel you’re living in the modern age. Such is the case when we stumbled across this First Demo — Fugazi’s demo tapes while the band prepared to record their eponymous first studio EP. Seminal […]

Cynthia’s Son contains 19 songs of Inspectah Deck’s highly polished rhyme schemes, with about half the tracks produced by INS himself. Forever entering the hip-hop canon with one […]

Did you know it was Hip-Hop Month? We didn’t. Diplo does. Diplo knows his hip-hop. Ever since seeing him sometime in the mid 2000’s with Low B during his Hollertronix era, it’s been clear the man loves and knows his music. That’s why he’s taking the idea of a Hip-Hop Month seriously, assembling a full 2-hour set […]


Rumpshaker Records produces this first in a new series of mix sets from friends of the bass and breaks-driven label. It’s no secret we love our breaks here at LIAS, so we welcome this Rumpshaker Friendcast mix series with open arms… hands up, thumbs down, naturally. First up is Eddie Light, who Rumpshaker describe as “one of the USA’s […]


French electropop princess Yelle is back, which is music to our ears. It’s been more than 3 years since her “Safari Disco Club” and “Que veux-tu” Two-In-One Mini-film, so the time is about right. Last week she released the single “Complètement Fou” that is well, complètement fou.

1st LP release since "Drukgs" 13 years ago is kind of a big deal
