Cascade Records Podcast 45

The podcast might just be the perfect platform for today’s crop of electronica-influenced instrumental hip-hoppers, as the continuous mix format lends itself to the mechanisms of a traditional “beat tape,” as well as those of a partially or fully improvised live performance. Case in point: “Cascade Records Podcast 45,” mixed by Vicenza, Italy’s Morpheground, who bookends his session with some filter-fried vocal samples (Randy Crawford and somebody else; maybe Thom Yorke) while running the gamut from uprock-ish to chillwave-y, even throwing in a remix of the remix of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” along the way. If you dig this, be sure to check out Morphe’s 2011 outing, Enfuse
