Lucas The Beatbox - Hip-Hop Sweet Shop Vol.1

Beatboxer, fashion designer and generall all-round bad man Lucas Brooks has been dabbling in a bit of DJing as of late, and has started to record some mixes, with this being my favourite of the lot so far. Bringing together some old skool classics and some new skool anthems, this is just what's needed to brighten up a wet and windy Thursday afternoon.

Bon Iver - Who Is It? (Bjork Cover)

Between headlining festivals and designing a shoe that features fish bone (yes, fish bone) graphics, Bon Iver have found time to record a special iTunes session that dropped today. The EP features seven performances, including a cover of Bjork's 'Who Is It?', which has been a staple track in their set since the self-titled sophmore album was released last year. This is beautiful, as is everything that this band does. Buy HERE.

This time round he has taken tracks by Nero, Kill The Noise, Skrillex & Zeds Dead (and more) to bring us a free download called 'Dream'. This is sick.
