Turf Talk in the NY Times

Posted By on Thu, Jan 3, 2008 at 1:31 PM

Kalefa Sanneh has been steadily plugging the work of Bay Area rap vet Turf Talk in the NY Times as of late. Back in June, he gave West Coast Vaccine a plug, writing that although the disc was a little rough, it also "offers plenty of evidence to suggest that he could transcend his regional status." Last weekend Sanneh reminded the nation of Turk Talk once again, noting that in hiphop's shrinking marketplace, Turf's intrepid hustle is the new face of hiphop promotion. Always good to see local talent getting national recognition.

  • 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.'"
