So I’m on Instagram – gonna try and post some interesting, record-and-hip-hop-nerd-type photos. Here’s something that fell out a record sleeve recently – a promo postcard for those buyers of early Solesides (now Quannum) vinyl.

Diggin this joint, they all kill it but Big KRIT…
Man YouTube is so full of ill covers of songs..love finding this kinda stuff.
500mixes.com is a new mix site from curator Eric Nord. Lots of great stuff to last you hours of listening pleasure.
Dope video of Rhettmatic and Shortkut keeping turntablism alive, and covering the all-time dj classic, “Adventures on the Wheels of Steel” by Grandmaster Flash. Fresh.

“Digging Diaries” will be a new mixtape series from me for 2013, chronicling recent digs and travels I might take throughout the year. I went to Seattle and Portland over the winter holidays, and ended up shipping back a thick stack of vinyl to NYC. This mix is composed of just a few of those records, eclectic and vibey, trying to play some stuff you don’t normally hear, along with a couple classic breaks for the heads.
