Bottom Forty

Bottom Forty is a mirror ball in New York, a basement in Chicago, a cruise in L.A. and a night in the desert.

Remember the days when hip-hop wasn’t pop? Yeah, if you’re young enough, you probably don’t. So let Berlin deep house producer Alex Agore takes us back to the days when hip-hop had more in common with underground soul, jazz, ethereal samples and delicious grooves than gangsters or commercial bullshit. I was talking to Flammable’s Karl Kamakahi today about missing some proper soul and this one popped up in my SoundCloud feed and straight knocked us both flat. Check it:

Double Duchess: SF Queer Electro-Hop (and remixes)

Written by
March 25, 2013


It’s Monday. Wake the f*** up. Yeah, I know. But SF’s queer electro-hop duo Double Duchess will do the trick, so to speak. They’ve been bringing loud, lo-fi jams with plenty of queer SF street drama for a couple years now, and have no interest in your weekend hangover.

And remixes…acid, Baltimore, house, it’s all here for free downloads and loud as a bullhorn.

Our gurl David Sternesky’s remix has been getting special play in Seattle lately. David and his partner Mat Dos Santos aka “Two Dudes in Love” will be performing with B40’s Nark & Recess this weekend at the Seattle Eagle. Check the invite (and get ready for the Two Dudes in Love B40 podcast episode coming soon):
