Merchbar showin’ love…


Thanks to Merchbar and the homie Ed Aten for the awesome plug on the Siete Galaxias mix…

In a world where lines  between genres shift daily as people search for the new, chew and move on to the next one,  true  originals and unique perspectives stand apart. Maybe that’s why  DJ Platurn‘s musical voice and perspective on music is so refreshing.  Just like it takes someone special to represent both Oakland and Iceland simultaneously, DJ Platurn is both one of hip-hop’s prominent missionaries but also one of its  harshest critics.  We sat down to talk to Platurn about productivity, merchandise and his new mix of the funky beats from South America that was just written up in Wax Poetics.
