    174: TM88

    This week I chop it up with TM88, the Grammy Award-nominated producer, who is a staple in the Atlanta trap hip-hop scene, working with all the elites from Young Thug and Future to Drake and Juicy J. We talk about a myriad of subjects from selling beats for $40 to growing up living with his grandmother, all the way to being grammy nominated in 2023 and becoming a new dad. We cover everything under the sun to get to know TM88 better and we also talk about how his own production team, Crash Dummy, is growing and changing the game.

    172: DK & Ghettosocks

    172: DK & Ghettosocks

    This episode, we open a can of worms and talk about everything from old hangout spots, newspapers and Celine Dion, and I beg the question, 'What would the banging yet smooth beats of DJ Premier, Pete Rock, and the sonic architects of ’90s boom-bap sound like today?' Nova Scotian-based producer DK has answered that question with his warm, analog-meets-digital hybrids of wistful yet modern boom-bap. Ghettosocks, a legend in his own right also swings by and together they release Listen to the Masters, teeped in analog swagger, each track exudes a warm vintage vibe that’s instantly chilled by ultra-cool flows. Enjoy the episode.
