NEW DJ MIX: Radio:Rontronik - Broadcast 4

CGN presents Radio Rontronik: Broadcast 4 (25th Century Sock Hop), the fourth of the series. It's a future-retro vibe, heavy on the Detroit techno and electronica tip. Think Blade Runner Disco...

Album Cover of The Month: Echo Party

Edan will be releasing "Echo Party." A Mixtape of sorts. He was given access to Traffic Ent. Group's back catalog of old school rap - labels like Magic Records, Chocolate Star, P&P among others, and asked to create something new out of it, whatever he wanted. In doing this he was given open art-direction for the cover art. The vinyl LP covers are going to be all white-tip on sleeves, like those old 60s records, with Edan creating some kind of cover art to each one personally. There will be only 1000 made. Genius.
