Coachella 2012 is almost here, with an unprecedented two duplicate weekends of the world’s best music performed in one of the world’s most beautiful venues. Picking the acts you must see is a full-time sport for Coachella attendees and the media alike. But considering that URB has been down with the desert spectacular since 1999, we figure we’ll throw our two cents into the ring. …MORE

In its SXSW debut, the much ballyhooed celebrity investment vehicle/crack-rock website turntable.fm brings URB readers a pair of tickets to see Flying Lotus and AraabMuzik on the first of their two events coming up in Austin, TX on 3.10. Diplo, A-Trak, and ?uestlove tix will be coming down the pipeline as well.
We will bring you more on this details continue to bleed out, but for now we can tease you with a DJ Battle featuring URB Magazines very own Joshua Glazer.
LA is known for bringing strange combinations of folks together. But that doesn’t stop eyebrows from raising when serious beat producer Flying Lotus ends up on a podcast with a pornstar, even if that star is the highly credible Sasha Grey. The two were booked to appear on The Champ podcast, which is produced by Neal Brennan (of the Chappelle Show), Moshe Kasher and DJ Douggpound, and sounds like morning radio at it’s finest. Sasha talks about her pubes (duh) while Flylo crafted an on-the-spot composition, which you can hear in the last three minutes of the broadcast.
Excited to share the first official single from Sonnymoon’s upcoming self titled album being released in May.
Enjoy a stream of the song “Just Before Dawn” which includes an amazing alternative take from Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, arranger, and conductor Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Miguel’s work spans from conducing and arranging Suite for Ma Dukes, the orchestral interpretation and tribute to the late J. Dilla, Flying Lotus’s “Cosmogramma” and Thundercat’s “The Golden Age of Apocalypse” album, and others…
Also, last week we announced Sonnymoon hitting the road with Teebs (Brainfeeder) and Time Wharp from late March through April.
Fabulously foppish beatsmith Daedelus has been an LA treasure for years. But the producer also known as Alfred Darlington has been experiencing a heightened profile lately, sure to be raised even higher with this 30-minute mix he did for SoCal public radio powerhouse KCRW. Says the man himself:
An almost 30 minute mix of a morning live set, really pretty mellow throughout and still a snap shot for me of what I was feeling in 2010. I hope it has weight going into 2012. You’ll notice sounds from Lorn, Floating Points, Tokimonsta, Flying Lotus, and all sorts of non-electronics like Sonic Youth and Beirut, among many many other odds and ends.
