Issue 118: Heat Wave

For our summer double-issue, we check in with cover stars Hercules and Love Affair to get the scoop on disco's newest generation. We find out just what makes Doseone and his Subtle outfit tick, profile the newest crew of U.S. ragga MCs, and talk to revolutionary hip-hop MC Immortal Technique. We join The Grouch on this tour of the Southwest, get Quiet Village's favorite films, round up the best dancefloor beats Italy has to offer, go into the studio with Booka Shade, and much more.

Issue Extras:

  • Live with Lexie Mountain Boys
    Attending a Lexie Mountain Boys live show is the only real way to get a feel for all that this acappella/performance-art quintet has to offer. Here’s a few of our favorite recent shows of theirs.
  • X Factor
    Immortal Technique on his favorite book of all, The Autobiography of Malcolm X.
  • Getting Rad
    Extras from Josiah Hughes’ interview with graphic designer Damien Correll.
