Another legendary hip hop producer visits the Lounge this week. DJ Muggs, the producer for Cypress Hill who's probably best known for creating the beats behind House of Pain's iconic classic “Jump Around”, has teamed up with Andrew Kline of L.A. hardcore band Strife and singer Brevi on a new project called Cross My Heart Hope To Die. If you remember the sounds of Cypress Hill at all, you'll appreciate the dark atmospheres in that tune.
Also, All India Radio returns with a complete reimagining of their classic album Fall, which I featured in Dave's Lounge #124. I've also got a couple of pre-releases from our pals at Cold Busted Records, and lots more that I think you'll enjoy.
The opening monologue this week comes from this year's Bruce Sterling and Jon Lebkowsky: State of the World, a public online discussion about the important events on our lonely little planet, held every January at The Well. Lots of great stuff in that convo this year that's worth your time to read…

Hard choice but wild side was the track that I liked the most.
Hard choice this week, but winner is (drum roll, please!)….”Part Of Life” by Nanobyte. That song is soooo smoooove! Hope to meet you one day, Dave. I live in Raleigh. Gregg of Install It!
I really like your cast. It promotes new music and it helps me calm to code. Thanks Dave. It may not be a big deal to you sometimes. However; you know how to do this and a lot of people would hate to see the Lounge not there…. Podcasting is a good model and keeps you free and clear of disruptive influences…like sponsors. It is your mark your choice.
Another one for #2, “Wild Side”… fantastically Bond-esque.
Oh man. I’m a bit behind on catching up your podcasts, but this week’s playlist is sick! It’s really hard to choose the favorite, but if I had to choose, I have to go with “Wild Side”, then “Part Of Life”. Amazing job, man!
“Part Of Life” by Nanobyte – I was in a lower tempo mood. Although, I do agree that the “Wild Side” track has hints of Cypress in it.
