I’ve had a roll of good musical guests on my Pop Music show lately. A couple weeks ago I had Crashfaster come in preview a couple tracks from his newest album. Then last week we had Doseone (musician, poet, and co-founder of Anticon records) in the studio to talk about his recent video game soundtrack work, teaching freestyle rap workshops in Oakland schools, and whether or not it’s acceptable to shout “Skate Or Die” at strangers.
At one point in the show, I pulled out my circuit bent Casio SK-1 and made some weird sounds while Dose free-styled. I’ve been a fan of Dose’s work for nearly 16 years, so hanging out and talking music was certainly a highlight of my year. Hear the freestyle up top, or listen to the recent full episodes below.
