As big a group of music nuts as we are here at Soundwaves Radio, it’s always nice to have friends whose musical tastes never cease to amaze you time and time again. Our good pal Aaron Gleen of Beats-N-Crates is one such friend who is insistent upon staying on the cusp of what the latest and greatest is in the hip-hop realm.
The most beautiful thing about Aaron’s story is that the dude has amassed a following built simply upon the foundation of his being a music fan and born communicator. He hears something he likes, he drops said artist a line, and instant a bond is formed. As more and more cats have become hip to the level of detail that my man Aaron takes in bringing new music to the eyes and ears of the masses, more and more artists have grown to come to him whenever it is that they’ve created their latest and greatest joints in the basement/studio/Mom’s garage all over the world.
This Saturday we had Aaron come through and bless us with an hour of music that has stayed in heavy rotation as of recently in his headphones, and the results were quite nice.
And since you know we never bring you dinner without brining out dessert, we then had UK cool kids Belleruche stop by the studio after a long night’s performance on the opposite end of town to talk homemade albums, the joys of jamming, the incomparable warmth of analog equipment, and the fantasticness that is their latest LP “270 Stories” (available now via UK label Tru Thoughts..shouts to our gal Jasmine De La Paz for putting this together like Legos!!).
