MIXTAPE SHOW 39 – Thes One Interview
Happy goddamn memorial day. Maybe this year they’ll remember to stop sending motherfuckers to go die in the desert.
This week, viagra as promised back in episode #37 (seriously, and go check that one or you’re missing out), physiotherapy I’ve got an exclusive (exclusive!!!) interview with Thes One of People Under The Stairs. Basically the interview speaks for itself, but you can expect to hear Thes breaking it down on the new album, his approach to beatmaking on Stepfather, how ridiculous all them punk-ass kids running round calling themselves CEOs and A&Rs really are, and what he thinks about bootlegging.
If you’re one of those people that tried to download the new PUTS joint online in April and instead got a recording of Thes reading the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, you might want to listen to this to see why you got that.
And as a special bonus, I threw in a bunch of questions posed to Thes by members of the PUTS Online forum.
As usual, these joints aren’t possible without the support of probably five extra people, so shouts and thanks go to Thes One himself and Paul of Basement Records for helping coordinate schedules and shit. Thanks as well to the community at putsonline.co.uk.
All beats in this show are off of the new Stepfather album, so if you like what you hear, you can go cop the record maybe – which, incidentally, if you’re planning on throwing or attending any kind of outdoor kickback this summer, you can’t really afford to be without. Instant summer pool party soundtrack.
