Never Knows Best Takes Over NFOP

So, this blog has once again expanded; this time, in the form of a music column for Germany-based online music magazine, No Fear of Pop.

My first take at it is a review about Dual Form, a compilation of LA weirdo electronic artists co-released by Leaving Records and Stones Throw (which is famous for all of the Madlib, J Dilla, Peanut Butter Wolf stuff), in which I discuss some trends in music journalism coverage, a few of the glanced-over artists on the compilation, and a potential future for all of these tiny tape labels reaching audiences otherwise outside of their financial means.

Extra!! Extra!! Read all about it!!

It's just another mix I made to try and convince Dots to let me DJ there. I kind of have my turntables piled on my desk so some of the transitions aren't the best. I hope you enjoy it anyway.
