You might hear some cool tunes blasting from a food truck every once in a while -- we recall boogieing to Michael Jackson at the Filipino breakfast mobile called the Wow Truck recently -- but now a local food truck has inspired its very own mixtape.

Yesterday, DJ King Shameek released a 77-minute mix dedicated to Borinquen Soul, a Puerto Rican truck based in Oakland. It's got the fast pace of a hip-hop mix (and features Puerto Rican rappers like Big Pun) but also incorporates modern and traditional Puerto Rican tunes.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
