Born to a robotics engineer father who worked at General Motors and obsessed over Kraftwerk, Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman was destined to hit the burgeoning house scene in Detroit. “Krakpot” originally appeared on his 1994 record Recycled Plastik, but in honor of chronicling his long career, he’s invited some of the people that inspired him to refit his originals on a compilation called Arkives. Hawtin and techno artist/tea slinger/Minor Threat-enthusiast, Moby came up together at those warehouse parties and now he’s re-fashioned the track from thumping house into something a little bit more ethereal. A testament to the history of electronic music, just like the rest of Arkives.
The video’s part of Dynamo TV, which is basically Dynamo hanging out with the likes of Director X and rappers Example and Tinie Tempah doing his stuff – all pretty cool.
This week Dynamo meets hip hop DJ Whoo Kid and the current World Freerunning champion Tim Shieff for some amazing magic.

For those that still like their hip-hop grimy and preferred Times Square with more strip clubs and less Applebee’s, Brooklyn rapper Q-Unique, formerly of the Arsonists, is back with his sophomore album, Between Heaven And Hell, his first project since the 2008 release of Vengeance Is Mine. While the new album, on which Q-Unique receives assistance from the likes of Ill Bill, Slaine, and more, dropped earlier this fall, Q-Unique continues to release new videos to support the project, the latest for the unforgiving, raw “Mr. Lopez.”
“Mr. Lopez got shot/ Police tape off, start the investigation/ Five suspects under an interrogation… Street life brings the devil out of desire,” raps Q-Unique on the song’s chorus, detailing the story of a small-time robbery gone wrong. Q-Unique tells the menacing tale atop production that meets him each step of the way, switching-up with each verse, both taking twists and turns as the story progresses. Matching Q’s powerful lyrics and vocal performance is a strikingly shot video with Q-Unique narrating the story of the bodega heist gone wrong as the violence and confusion unfolds around him.
Q-Unique’s Between Heaven And Hell is available now via Fat Beats Records.
