This is NOT 97, a home for discovering new music from talented, under-the-radar artists around the world.
On each episode, three hosts and a guest meet around a table at Only NY to discuss fresh music found in the depths of the Internet. They present two tracks each, released in the last six to eight months from artists with under ten thousand followers. Discourse and context round out each show, as the team breaks down what they hear and what each sound means to them.
On today's episode we sit down with Timmhotep Aku, former editor of Pitchfork's hip hop vertical Levels, NPR, and now Afropunk.
Timm introduces the forward thinking hip hop styling of Slauson Malone and Pink Siifu, as well as unknown London group Sault and their modern, retro sound.
We talk Melbourne funk outfit First Beige, and dive into the conceptual world of Jadu Heart. Rashaad brings the latest release from legendary producer and lyricist Snubnose Frankenstein, Genesis talks London newcomer V7Backin2007 and Not 97 intern Andrew "Young Cornbread" Brown presents Detroit's own Supakaine. Amongst much more.
