Future Classic: Rollrgrrl “Repent”

I never thought I’d see the day where my friend’s mom makes it to the MIMS front page! Working hard as a hairdresser during the day, she slaves away at sluggish sizzurp-fueled beats after dark, desperately trying to overpower the harmful side-effects from old-lady perm fumes. It’s a hard-knock life, but someone’s gotta do it. […]

Forgotten Treasures: East Flatbush Project “Tried By 12″ Remixes (1998)

When I was 17, I used to hangout with a guy named Fat Steve who lived in a suburb of Montreal called Cote-St-Luc. We’d chill in his bedroom at his mom’s house and listen to rap music after school. He had the fattest cat I’d ever seen in my life, and was obsessed with Quasimoto […]

Forgotten Treasure: The System “You Are In My System” (1982)

XLR8R Magazine : Issue 137 ft. Ramadanman

Forgotten Treasure: Don Carlos “I’m not crazy” (1984)

Future Classic: Miles Bonny & Taku “Down to earth club music”
