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.
