Supa Dynamite Soul: Raashan Ahmad
  • Supa Dynamite Soul: Raashan Ahmad
What's this? Yes yes y'all, more digital goodies from everyone's favorite Crown City Rocker, Raashan Ahmad .

On "Lambada," a banging electro groove with clashing cymbals and pop-lock handclaps provide a template for another of Ahmad's testimonials to b-boy aesthetics and dancefloor sweatiness: "snap your neck, show respect to the disk jock/ it's hip-hop, if you is not/ no matter keep it moving like a cuckoo clock."

The song is lifted from Ahmad's new digital release Soul Power. In a press release, he describes why he recorded it: "I discovered that I wanted to add more bangin' songs to my live set. Soul Power is the result. When I say 'soul power', I'm talking about about what gives my soul, my spirit power--which is music!" The 13-track album features guest spots by Aceyalone and Aima, as well as production by Ahmad's fellow Crown City folks Woodstock, Headnodic, and Kat 010. You can purchase the album here or watch Ahmad's vlog here.

  • 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.'"
