Tall Black Guy and Tensei (Simple X and Midas Wells): With both of these producers getting international accolades from BBC's Gilles Peterson, Chicago is in the building. Also, acclaimed L.A. indie label Plug Research recently signed Tensei. Remember, your favourite (yes, the Brit spelling) editor laced you up first right here on Epitonic...stay chuned fi true.
ATR: Over 20 years of material...reunited and coming to a Chi near you (September 28th). If you not familiar, get familiar. Can you get Atari cartridges from GameFly? #Random.
Chicago is represented again with Onis of Stay Humble Entertainment rocking "White Sox Fitted." Sad that the Sox are looking like anklets instead of calf-highs this year, or I could see this blowing up as an anthem. Nevertheless, it is ultra and represents that South Side pride.
Be sure to gander at the epitonic.tumblr.com site...and of course perpetualrebel.com. Put it in your pocket and stay upright, good people.
