Sadly David Axelrod passed away on the 5th of February 2017. I really like some of his music and obviously DJ Shadow is how I discovered him. I think the first time I saw his name was on his remix of Rabbit In Your Headlights by UNKLE. A year after hearing this remix I picked up a compilation of his work, 1968 To 1970 An Anthology. I don’t know how many times I have listened to that compilation over the years. It was great for Mo’Wax to release an old album of his in 2001 as well. There were some great tracks on it. You can watch the multimedia content from the self titled album on Mo’Wax below as well as listen to a great interview with him that appeared on Solid Steel when the album came out.

Karriem Riggins is releasing his new album, Headnod Suite, on Stones Throw records on the 24th of February. I can’t wait, I really liked his first album, Alone Together. Check out two tracks below. It is sounding a bit more hip hop than his last album which was a bit more jazz.
I did not rate Prometheus. I got excited about it and then it turned out to be a confused film and I disliked most of the characters. Should I get my hopes up for Alien: Covenant? Maybe I’ll just watch Alien and Aliens instead?
