DJ Hennessy Youngman follows up CVS BANGERS [prev.]
with his new Soundcloud mix, NSA BANGERS.
NSA BANGERS is an audio landscape full of paranoia, espionage, epic snooping, unhealthy obsession, and the stress of being a contemporary type human being. Basically, NSA BANGERS is the soundtrack of Freedom! And Freedom is expensive y'all! Apparently, it like, costs your Freedom!

An effortless melding of Malian and western styles topped off by the gorgeously smoky voice of Fatoumata Diawara
The infectiously brisk tempo, chiming guitar artistry and tight, rapid fire harmonies of Shirati Jazz
The warmly grounded choral expression of South Africa's Black Umfolosi
. The delicate, calmly unfolding wellspring of melody (starting off with a classic Morricone spaghetti-western quote!) of kora master Toumani Diabate
. The loping, balafon-driven groove over which the majestic, declamatory voice of Oumou Sangare
soars. The classic, Cuban-inspired rhumba (but with the distinctively African feel and sound) of Orchestra Baobab
... all these modern treasures of African music and much, much more from Africa and beyond at the World Circuit Soundcloud page
. Enjoy the ride!

It’s a fierce object, many-layered yet taut as could be. It’s a dense field made of raw materials so rarefied that even in combination the resulting effect is singular, tensile. The album in question is Fugazi Edits, for which Chris Lawhorn took the extensive discography of the hardcore band Fugazi and combined multiple songs into new hybrid compositions.

On October 19, 1995 Chuck Phillips interviewed Tupac Shakur at Can Am Studios Tarzana, California for an article published in the LA Times. The recordings
were previously unreleased. Tupac talks about how the United States is full of gangs (the FBI/ATF/Democrats/Republicans), disparate media treatment of artists, how Tony Danza wrote him in prison, how Shakespeare's stories are the same things rappers talk about in their music, and the worth of black people's lives.
