Another off the beaten path battle, but well worth the trip. I reached out to Mokhov to see if he wanted to be a part of this site. Usually when you cold call someone out of your league you just don’t get a reply. Mokhov was gracious enough not only to respond but to give […]
Alright, finally some new music! (You can thank Pandora and Beatport for today’s battle, great music discovery tools.)

Orange sports a trifecta of (my) musical weaknesses – chill, female vox, and chops/breaks. Somewhere […]

Today’s Battle is a TV score match-up and a true Tortoise and the Hare race. The list of artists who have sampled Knight Rider is exhausting so if you never watched the show, I’m sure you’ve heard pieces of the theme in some capacity by now.
