Hip Hop Saved my Life Podcast - Episode 34 ft DJ MK (2017)


This one is also a great listen. Anyone familiar with the UK mixtape scene in the late 90's will recognise the name MK, he's been at the forefront of the underground scene for as long as I can remember.

Really interesting to hear his thoughts on the state of the current scene and commercial hip hop and some great stories from his long career.


Hip Hop Saved my Life Podcast episode 33 ft Chali 2na (Jurassic 5) 2017


I am loving these Hip Hop Saved my Life podcasts right now, and this interview with Jurassic 5 front man Chali2na is a large reason as to why; funny, insightful and reflective on the current state of the music, this is well-recommended...

DJ Jamez Gant - Funky Breaks on 45 (2018)


Nice new one from the UK's #Waxnerd affiliate James Gant. If his instagram posts are anything to go by, he's got a crazy collection of new and recent hip hop on vinyl, which I'm very envious of!
