Jams Dean debuts the song “Yoga Pants” at Kimball House Rock with DJ Earn Money on the decks. Sharkula was also on hand for the performance, treating the audience to a unique style of improv ad-libs while assuming hype man duties.
Jams and Sharkula released a collaborative project in 2012, head over to Bandcamp to check that out.

Premiering this afternoon on Vibe To This, “Reflections” is the latest Nunca Duerma collaboration, featuring San Francisco-based beatmaker, Duktap. With Duerma’s Shapeshifter long-player just around the corner and Duktap on the eve of releasing Rinsed, the pair of producers is preparing to hit the road on a string of live dates in Chicago and Michigan.

“Sex Beat” is the first single from Netherfriends Goes West, an upcoming Netherfriends project comprised predominantly of Kanye West samples. Chandler London caps off the track with a verse of lucid lyricism. The video features cameos from the usual suspects, spliced with some familiar West Coast footage, and that scene from The Mack– which hasn’t sounded this good since “Wisdom Body.” Download “Sex Beat” below.
If sometime over the last twenty years you’ve suddenly felt out of place- tossing around your Koosh Ball, wishing you were at Woodstock 2 listening to Green Day- dancing in a muddy mosh pit in Birkenstocks while drinking a Crystal Pepsi… don’t worry; Netherfriends and Fess Grandiose have you covered with Goosebumps: A lifetime worth of 90s nostalgia, in 7 minutes or less.

Music: Fess Grandiose, “Nutz…” from Life In Lo-Fi…Vol. 1
