Issue 134: Beat Happening
Just when you thought Detroit's roots couldn't spread any further, the master of the Minimal Nation, Robert Hood, returns to the fray from his home in Alabama. We dig in deep with the former Motown resident before surveying LA's still-burgeoning beat scene (Shlohmo, Alex B, Baths, Take et al), heading east to Toronto to sit down with new disco-house dons Azari & III, and even further east to chat up London dubstep iconoclasts Mount Kimbie. Throw in profiles on Tensnake, Oval, and Actress, and you've got quite a beatific affair. Read all about it here, or view the entire issue online at Issuu.
