Shhh...

It's been close to a month since the last CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION. But El Keter and Emeyesi are finally back with another installment.

This time around they spin some sampledelic Hip-Hop, a couple funky Electro-Disco cuts, a few Indie-Dance tracks, a pair of smooth slow-jammy Alt-R&B jams (or jammy-jams?), and one wonky Indie-Hippie tune.

They also get into some typically asinine discussion points including getting "all churroed out", the "gentle buck fifty", and how pizza contributed to Emeyesi's recent exercise of his white privilege.

Happily we only managed to screw up the recording process once!

Shhh...

Go "goo-goo, ga-ga" over an all new, all spontaneous, all long-awaited, all technical-difficulty-laden installment of the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION!

This week El Keter and Emeyesi hit you with some underground and alternative Rap joints, a couple of new tracks from some of our Indie-Pop favorites, and a handful of soulful Alt-R&B jams.

As usual there are shenanigans aplenty, including a total breakdown of our recording studio, leading to El Keter just saying "fuck it" and chucking the outro.

We promise to get it right next time.

Shhh...

The last episode was just uploaded a couple days ago, but the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION is already back at it with another new podcast episode for the weekend!

This week El Keter and Emeyesi mix it up with some rappity-Rap, laid-back hippity-House, and super-siggitty-smooth electronic siggitty-siggitty-Soul.

They also abandon the "full-body-denim" for the "full-body-camo", introduce you to the wonders of the "camo pocket", discuss why James Blake might be a much-needed surrogate for the recently deceased Prince, and tell you why you shouldn't be excited about Chuck D teaming up with Rage Against the Machine!

Fun will be had by all!

Shhh, , ,

Apparently we upload new podcast episodes on Thursday nights now?

After a bit of a delay due to several technical difficulties your hosts El Keter and Emeyesi are proud to bring you another installment of the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION.

This week's transmission is a special "Dusty Transmission" epidsode that hearkens back to the days of our DUSTY GROOVE radio show featuring dancefloor classics from the Disco era! The show was inspired by the likes of David Mancuso's LOFT, Larry Levan's PARADISE GARAGE, Hartford, Connecticut's DJ Mike Johnson (who played an integral role in Emeyesi's discotheque education back in the day), countless "classics" mixes, and the change to warmer Springtime weather, in case you're wondering.

You also want to know if there are "shenanigans"? Oh, there are "shenanigans" all right!

Get with "the program" as your hosts El Keter and Emeyesi indoctrinate you with another fresh installment of the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION!

This week they play you the Rap music—including a fly remix of the number one song in the country AND El Keter's early pick for "song of the Summer"—a couple of slinky Future-Soul jams, and a Swedish tribute to "his royal badness".

They also address several "talking points" including "talking points" themselves, the fact that the show was recorded on Walpurgisnacht, the legacy of Rappers not making any damn sense, the Afrika Bambaataa sex-abuse allegations & self-proclaimed "God of Hip-Hop" KRS-One's questionable response to them, and the untimely passing of Prince Rogers Nelson, among other controversial and comedic topics.

For the second week in a row the Clandestine Transmission is uploading a podcast episode on a Tuesday night instead of a Sunday morning!

I'd call it an "all new" episode, but the truth is your hosts El Keter and Emeyesi opted to bring you a "yesterday" and "today" episode that is about the "old" AND the "new" this week as they play some hot "not-so-new" cuts they've just never had the chance to play before in addition to a handful of fresh brand new-ish joints!

They also offer up their catchphrase-generating services, explain what it means to get "Post Malone-ed" (or "White Iverson-ed"), discuss El Keter's NBA obsession, pitch a few television ideas, talk more shit about the Tidal streaming service, and introduce you to some new slang that's sure to take over the streets!

We also discuss "full body denim", the importance of fiber and hydration to the podcast's "regularity", and why the recent passing of Phife from A Tribe Called Quest should make you want to slap a soda out of someone you love's hand!

Your hosts El Keter and Emeyesi proclaim this week's episode of the DAMN-ZEPPELIN TRANSGRESSION, also known as the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION, "For Sweden, With the Times"!

They hop in the kinda-WABAC machine and take you on a sleepy Springtime ride through the Swedish countryside, spinning a bunch of Swedish Indie-Pop favorites and a handful of remixes of some bigger Swedish "hits" from the mid-to-late-00's along the way.

We call it "sleepy" because this episode was recorded late-night on a day both hosts happened to wake up at 5AM. So expect some somnambulist shenanigans alongside the smooth Scandinavian sounds presented throughout.

Let your friends El Keter and Emeyesi love you down with a very special Valentine's Day episode of the Clandestine Transmission!

This week we fire up the WABAC machine and reminisce on loves lost and won via classic early-nineties Hip-Hop songs dealing with the subjects of love, relationships, and makin' babies.

We also touch on several off-the-wall topics, including our love of vinyl records, non-album cuts, and remixes, the past and seeming lack of a future for "Hip-Hop cinema", the racial origins of the girl Rakim rapped about on "Mahogany", basic Craigslist safety (or how to rob somebody via Craigslist), and why so many of the songs on this week's playlist are by 5%ers.

The first all new episode of the CLANDESTINE TRANSMISSION of 2016 takes a turn for the Goth!

Emeyesi is missing in action, but El Keter is joined by special guest A.C. Lucius of Goths of Western Massachusetts for an "All Goth" extravaganza!

Together they play some of her favorite Goth Rock cuts of all time, and a few of his picks from among modern music's current crop of dark offerings!

Be warned, this one's a marathon, as they get into some deep discussions regarding the pitfalls of trying to develop scenes or networks around underground subcultures, the creation of culture and personal identity, racial stereotyping, the intersection of Hip-Hop and the occult, Wicca and "the divine feminine", Hot Topic, the "Big Bang Theory-ization" of subcultures, and not being a gate-keeping dick!

Sadly, there are some audio volume issues with the third and final talking break where A.C. Lucius' tiny little voice gets buried beneath a too-loud background beat...sorry.
