A million garage-rock fans pumped their fists in unison and smoked a cigarette as endlessly cool blues-rock duo The Black Keys announced that they will be releasing their sixth studio album this May. Entitled Brothers, this album comes as a follow-up to their hip-hop collaboration album Blakroc, which is a favorite around the Axiom. Apparently, […]

First Show over, Weezy too Hott to handle

After much obsessing, running around, and song editing, the BreakBeat Axiom Radio show went on the air yesterday (or perhaps today, depending on where you put midnight to 1 am). The entire day was plagued by technical issues (Murphy’s Law for the win), ever since I started editing Q-tip’s Won’t Trade for radio use. I’m […]

Brian Burton, a.k.a. the musical genius behind the iconic Jay-Z/Beatles mash-up The Grey Album, and the production half of Gnarls Barkley has released something new to blow our collective minds. This time, Danger Mouse has collaborated with […]

Easy T sent me this video (courtesy of her main man, Kool Keith) and it seemed worth sharing, so here it is (apparently I was living under a rock and missed this): The artist, Nyle Emerson, did this during his senior year at NYU for a school project. It’s amazing what a $2,000 NYU grant, […]

Ever since the Sugar Hill Gang released Rapper’s Delight in 1979, the first popular single to feature sampling (they sampled Good Times by Chic), artists have been dusting off that vinyl to snag hooks, beats, drops, and whatever else can give their sound some of that old school flavor.
