Punk rock changed my life, but hip hop restructured my existence. Completely invaded my DNA and replicated into funky beat crazy chromosomes. I think, like many people obsessed with the artform, that what hip hop has always offered is options. It's a music form made out of mixing... borrowing elements from any and every source. Over a simple beat, your mom's records can be mixed with pop culture. Become infectious disease.

Almost all music has been touched by hip hop (and it's older brother, jah eternal DUB.) This mix is almost mystic... a lot of slow, heavy grooving. And shit hot damn... that Golden Bug is nutso! Can Gomma put out bad records?!?!?!?!?

No dark ranting today. I'm kinda bright. Almost happy even. Don't know if I like it... I feel like I'm going to get hit by a bus.
