An After Dark Hiphop Special, in which Beeso and guest host Ozi Batla get into some good times and classic memories from back in the day when our Beeso ran a couple of Brisbane music venues including the Alley, and did his bit to promote the nascent Australian hiphop scene of which Batla's troupe the Herd were in the vanguard.

They also get to mad scientists of recording, Sell Out With Me Tonight, losing your edge, it's the vibe, Batla's solo album Wild Colonial, the importance of time and place, why don't we get Kendrick Lamar, where's the fun in modern hiphop, why can't Beeso remember which classic album we did last week (hint: it sure as fuck wasn't (What's The Story) Morning Glory), why every head loves Roots, digital versus physical, and Batla's new Mexican food biz The Prickly Pear. Check out that and other Batla-related endeavours at elefanttraks.com.

#BALLS: Mostly sport, out every weekend. Think Roy and HG, with more booze and far, far worse takes. May contain #NBAfeels.
#BALLS After Dark: Mostly everything that's not sport, mostly harmless, out mid-week each week. Featuring our After Dark New Music Challenge, where we review two brand new albums and a well-aged classic each week.
