Anticipating in 2013: Documentaries! Stones Throw, Delicious Vinyl, and Souls of Mischief all have projects in the works. Then rumour has it beat maestro Jansport J is working on the Bizarre Ride Live album… Plus, Prince Paul has only gone and written a screenplay. Oh boy!

Just an ordinary guy always on the hunt for extraordinary music. Not just as the founder of The Find Magazine & Rucksack Records, but also as a freelance music journalist (bylines at Tracklib, Bandcamp, Wax Poetics, DIG Mag, among others) and—above all—out of love for all kinds of good music.
