Thank you ROOK RADIO for having me on.
I hope you enjoy this mix!
“For this live mix I pulled some of my favorite 7s from my travels throughout Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Japan, China, New Zealand, and more. Choice 45s selections across this particular diaspora, but with no particular focus. Just amazing music via everyone’s favorite format. Enjoy it for what it is — excellent music that rarely sees the light of day. Finally, fuck the orange shitbag for insisting on holding on to his racist notions of everything not amerikkkan. Believe in science, believe in humanity, believe in education and have faith in the goodness of us all.”
From the depths of the Bay Area, Needle To The Groove has dug up another rising talent. Meet Edgewize, a young Bay Area MC whose delivery is a torrent of interlocking themes and literary references, paired up with DJ Platurn for their first release, Apatheater.
NTTG is proud to release their debut EP, a 5 tracker of minimalistic obscure loops over jet streams of rhymes. Beats by Platurn, rhymes by Edgewize. DJ Platurn, is the Pete Rock to Edgewize’s CL Smooth, the Eric B. to his Rakim. For fans of lo-fi beats and intelligent yet playful lyrics.

The love for this mix just won’t quit. After almost a year and a half we’re still getting folks from across the planet inquiring about the project and the material within. And since we’re close to running out of the bonus tracks cassingles, we decided to put a little package deal together for y’all on bandcamp. Limited supplies so don’t sleep, and for 1st time ever the HQ download is included. Take advantage cuz when it’s done it’s donezo for good. Enjoy!
First 7″ i’ve been on in a while, a remix for Superjock Records of Warren Lee’s “Underdog Backstreet”, a funky little NOLA number that I spiced up with just the right amount of chunky drums and vocal shouts. Gold wax, heavy stock sleeve, and custom ‘NOLAOAK’ sticker. Out now via Fat Beats — cop it here and preview below…
Catch myself and Professor Shorthair promoting the release with a string of shows and appearances throughout LA in a couple weeks & a special release party in Oakland on fat tuesday with my MJ’s Brass Boppers family — enjoy!
