Poverty-stricken soul. Smoked-out jazz. Fluorescent-coloured boogie. Foreign psychedelic madness. A few of the musical genres you might encounter on an episode of Cratery: a monthly vinyl podcast from record aficionados Arcee, Kaewonder and DJ Serious. Cratery can best be described as a dig diary: a document of the collective’s latest, most treasured and recently rediscovered original vinyl artifacts. The story of three dudes told through their record collections. Subscribe for free now.
CRATERY 88: Mr. Attic
I first met Mr. Attic at York University’s 105.5 FM in ’95. It was my first year attending York and my favourite pastime had quickly become loitering around the campus/community radio station before, between and after classes. One of my favourite shows was called “Soul by the Pound” – a program dedicated to playing the […]
CRATERY 87: David Axelrod tribute
David Axelrod would have probably scoffed at this tribute. He would have likely criticized the theme. Pointed out why these selections weren’t worthy of spotlighting. Reminded us why certain sessions were nightmares. Questioned the order of the track list. Told us which songs he got f****d on royalties for. And likely chastised us for over […]
CRATERY 86: The Brazil Episode
One of the simple pleasures of being a rap fan is the passionate level of debate and analysis you can engage in with a fellow nerd at any given moment around any given album – old or new. I definitely don’t have the same debates around Brazilian music. I rarely subject my favourite vintage records […]
CRATERY 85: Mastersihn
It’s funny to think I wouldn’t be typing these words right now if Kaewonder hadn’t asked me the question “Do you follow that dude @mastersihn on Instagram”? We’ve met a lot of good people online, and with a common love for good records and good smoke, Philly’s Mastersihn is definitely one of the good ones. […]
CRATERY 84: Supreme La Rock
My first real glimpse of Supreme La Rock was not in person. It was through a wantlist of records given to my friend Moss, via our mutual homie Jake One around ’95. Supreme had instructed Jake to tell his new Canadian counterparts to be on the lookout for some titles and send them his way […]
CRATERY 83: Dan Zacks
Toronto-based collector Dan Zacks pops his Cratery cherry on this month’s episode. I first came to know of Dan through the two Cuban funk compilations he released between 2006 and 2009: Si, Para Usted, volumes 1 and 2 (Both very well put together). Soon after, I realized he shared mutual friends like the hommies Kaewonder […]

If you are a break beat, sample and music nerd listen
This podcast is the epitome of music nerdery at its best. From rare break beats, drums, sample, and eclectic music this series is 100 % fire all the time! S/O Arcee, Kaewonder and Serious for putting out such s dope series! Salutes!
I can't believe I am just finding this now! I thought I would never hear from Arcee again once The Real Frequency stopped broadcasting 5 years ago.
Simply the Best Podcast this side of the Sun!
Words fail to describe how many a great psalm are contained within these sacred CRATERY podcasts. Listen to it and whatever you do while listening/absorbing it all will have special vibe and that's the truth to the youth! Where words fail the needle on the record won't!
