Podcast 82: East Bay to Back Bay

You may have surmised, from the title of this mix, that Boy in Static's contribution to the XLR8R Podcast has a little something to do with the Bay Area, but the S.F.-based indie-pop duo of Alexander Chen and Kenji Ross was nice enough to pass along a few words on each track in East Bay to Back Bay. "Kenji and I have been fortunate to become friends with some very talented folks over the past few years," explains Chen. "There's a personal story behind each track here."

Podcast 77: Odd Nosdam: Nofoolisnotaintready

No, that's not a typo in the header. It's just the phrase Odd Nosdam chose when naming this mix, and the 17 tracks here are equally as quirky and off-kilter. Berkeley, CA-based David P. Madson—who recently released the T.I.M.E. soundtrack, in which he scored 13 tracks to match the moves of 13 different skateboarders—curated a supremely mellow and incredibly eclectic mix for the latest installment of the XLR8R podcast.

Podcast 76: Jahdan Blakkamoore Full Hundred Mixed by Matt Shadetek

Brooklyn-based Jahdan is a man currently smack in the center of our radar (and in the Artists to Watch section of our March issue). The MC—who got his start with the Boot Camp Clique—originally hooked up with Dutty Artz' Matt Shadetek on the track "Brooklyn Anthem," and since then, he's stayed in good company with both Shadetek and the label (co-owned by DJ/ rupture).
