Beat Diaspora: Beats, Buses, Bricks

an omnivorous take on music of the beat-based variety and the urban spaces that nurture it

From the Autobahn to I-94 (via the rails)



Chicago shimmering across the water; heavy industry of Gary receding across the sand. This isn't the Caribbean, just the dunes.

While the beats usually traveled by asphalt, I can't shake my love of the high iron.

Hey there-
I was trying to find your email and couldnt-not trying to spam your comments- i thought you might be interested in my latest mix effort. I rep for Dutty Artz NYC (Rupture and Shadeteks collective)... This one falls somewhere between DMZ and Hot 97... i really enjoy the blog and your emphasis on material/spatial/social analysis along with music (as though they could ever really be seperated... anyways- would love some blog love if you like it

Hi Greg
I tried to write you, but it seems your inbox is full or something - the email kept coming back. Lets hope it works better with this email .....
I can only include hyperlinks at the right side of the article. not inside the article. Its a technical issue. If you have other hyperlinks that you want to put, please tell me.

Best!
Thomas
