Over the past few years rapper Meyhem Lauren has been making a name for himself in the underground hip-hop scene. And in the last year, he’s elevated his status with his first record on Fool’s Gold called Piatto D’Oro -free DL- We hung out with the Queens rapper in New York as he told us the plans for the rest of his year, which may or may not include spa treatments.
Since the early ‘90s, the reclusive Madlib has been producing music at a relentless pace. Whether he’s working with artists like Freddie Gibbs, MF Doom or Erykah Badu, collaborating with the late J Dilla, or working under one of his own aliases, like the drugged out party creature Quasimoto, Madlib has carved out his own idiosyncratic corner in the massive hip-hop universe.
Luckily, we were able to coax him out of his studio for a rare discussion at the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2016 about Prince, the importance of doing taxes, the death of his Quasimoto alter-ego, collaborating with Kanye West and his love of industrial music

This week we play a cracking break, eat chilled monkey brains and play a track from the simpsons…..one of those statements might not be true. Either way we play 9 killer tracks, all on vinyl as always . A nice break, a nice bit of disco, a couple killer 45s and an amusing theme. Not to be missed
