This man has one deep collection of hip hop, funk, house, and beyond, was involved with Bobbito's Footwork store for a bit, writes a regular column on crate diggin' in the Fader magazine, and can rock the muthafunkin' house. Peep it.

Plus an interview with the people behind NYC's 'Jump and Funk' party, dedicated to the power of afro-beat, new and old. Check it, check it...

Burnt by the Sun and The Quick Fix
Thursday, January 31st, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Featuring members from Discordance Axis, Human Remains, and Endeavor, Burnt By The Sun flexes a futuristic quasi-metal/hardcore hybrid that sounds both unique and imposing. www.burntbythesun.com

The Quick Fix - this NJ based quintet combines dissonantly intense guitar lines, fierce low-end drumming, taunting spoken diatribes, and inspired howls to get across their all-or-nothing musical philosophy. Drawing early inspiration from acts like Lungfish, Quicksand, and Unwound, the members have since torn apart their influences and built up an evil-tinged approach all their own. Their debut CDEP -- released by the Ernest Jenning Record Co. in early January 2002 -- was recorded by Don Zientra (Fugazi, Q And Not U).
