Able Fader

Able Fader has been making his mark on Seattle since 1990 when he first discovered graffiti at the age of fourteen.

New Music: Dex Amora x Melo-Zed - “Aspis”

Dex Amora

Dex Amora understands that to be more than a Seattle artist, you need to expand your horizons much further than our city limits. Most recently, he’s expanded his group of collaborators to include London’s Melo-Zed. Here’s their latest track “Apsis,” we’ll definitely have our ears out for what comes next. - Liz

New Video: Tuxedo - “RADIO VINYLE Interview”


Radio Vinyl is a YouTube series in which artists look through the giant record collection at Radio France and share their music memories. We were especially glad to see this one since Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One (as Tuxedo) will be at The Crocodile on July 2 with a live band. The Radio Vinyl interview with Madlib is also worth watching. - Liz

New Album: Astro King Phoenix - “Space > Pod < Memories”

Astro King Phoenix

Today Astro King Phoenix has shared with us a new album produced by OCnotes. You should be bummed if you missed his recent Home Slice appearance in The Crocodile Back Bar, with OCnotes on the decks and Malcolm Procter as live painter. Here are Astro’s notes about the new album:

Have you Ever been on a “Space Pod” and relived “Memories” while traveling in Hyperdrive ?
Astro King Phoenix opens an exhibit of memories revisited from the past
attempting to pull him home during an enhanced outer body experience
from dreaming in hyper sleep.. OCnotes painted the map from Rap
Loops as they travel by Space Pod to the future for the next shift….

Astro King Phoenix keeps getting better, we’ll be watching. - Liz
