Henry Rollins, The Weeknd, James Blake, Charlie Sheen, SBTRKT, DJ Mehdi, plenty of mixtapes & more

Time for the fourth edition of our Best Of 2011 retrospective series (after ART, BOOKS & STYLE), where we look back on the LIAS Year In Music. Frankly none of these lists are easy — we can trim each down to about 20 but then cutting them down to 10 means we gotta chop some […]

The "James Drake" mix by Bombé & Mr. Caribbean

We were pretty floored when we caught James Blake over at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery last month, so we’re stoked with any mixtape that makes the post-dubstep artist a prime subject. Drake…? Not so much, but we ain’t haters either. Philly producers Bombé & Mr. Caribbean do a nice job of blending the otherwise disparate […]
