Our friends at Serato asked us to rock volume 6 of their new Seratocast series. We kept it in the vein of our monthly Rub Radio mix, with new music from every corner of our crates, plus we debuted our new single, which comes out in August. Given all the twists and turns, we think it flows remarkably well. Big shout to Prince Rakeem for providing the intro material.

I’m coming home to you / where something see-through / so I can see your heart.
Night can never come / soon enough for me / I watch the sky all day.
Night is where I find / you and piece of mind / my days are filled with glee.
That’s why I truly / give you what you need / because you love me for me.

“We definitely predated hipsters,” says Diplo of the now-defunct web forum known as the Hollerboard. “It was like a secret club.”
Throughout the 2000s, the Low-Bee board, otherwise known as the Hollerboard, was an online gathering place for DJs, internet nerds, producers and party kids to exchange music, talk shit, party right, hook up, and LOL. It grew from a tiny community that had migrated from other Philadelphia-based indie rock and hip-hop boards, connected with a party called Hollertronix, thrown by a then-relatively unknown Diplo and his good friend, DJ Low-Budget or Low-Bee.
“What it did was solidify our scene in Philly and NYC—[party crews like] Hollertronix, The Rub, etc.—very like-minded kids,” Diplo continues.
I have a long interview and some great pictures in Kindling Quarterly #5, a beautiful magazine about creative fathers.
