The backstory – some time in late 2006, I got a bizarre email from a group calling themselves the Wurd Munchaz, with a link to their myspace. At first I thought it was just another low-budget demo, but then I listened to the cuts, and my mind was blown.

I don’t really know hardly anything about these dudes. They don’t answer their email, nobody seems to know anything about them. Every few months, though, a poorly spelled, all-caps email comes in from their producer, Copy Payper, with an mp3.

And out of nowhere, the other day I get this TTDD remix in the mail. I can’t find it online, they seem to have abandoned their myspace. I really know very little about these dudes – I don’t even know how many people are in their group – but real talk, they’ve been my favorite group for like 4 years now.

okay whatever this is getting long, let’s just get into the playlist.

TTDD – Love In Da Mall (Wurd Munchaz Remix). I’m 100% sure that this isn’t official, but it still goes. Oddly enough, the production on this actually sounds a little more ‘normal’ than the original. If, you know, you can ignore Copy Payper screaming over the top.

I guess @fucktyler is as good a contact for TTDD as any.

Graaeetest Gurrruuop. No, not a typo. That’s how they spelled “greatest group”. The chorus, if you can call it that, since it’s at the end, is great.

Shoht B Get That Muneee. Do not sleep on Shoht B. If you don’t pay attention, you miss things, like how he nonchalantly drops a reference to the Busy World of Richard Scarry in the middle of his first few bars. Frodo’s verse, though, is seriously insane. He actually starts threatening the Girl Scouts.

Tell Me About You Jeans Remix. Yes, there is an original to this, which I can’t seem to find, but this one is better, and a little more schizophrenic (listen to the lyrics. the singers are actually contradicting one another). Also, Little Leroy calls out T-Pain. This one is also a lot more complex musically – that sounds like actual violin by Devron, plus an absolutely epic guitar solo by Copy Payper.

Red Monkey Jeans. Early stuff. This is actually the track that introduced me to Wurd Munchaz. It’s pretty rough – I think they’re using an Archos or something to record this because you can hear the mic clicking in between verses. The gunshots, overtalk, and screams are enough (actually all of their stuff used to be full of gunshots and eagle shrieks), but come on. “I do my aerobics on my shoulder”? Telling us about how he brings ten pairs of jeans to the mall? Shoht B is a beast.

Also, this song is about pants.

Cowboy Test. I don’t understand the title, but this is sort of an odd song – the first verse is actually Copy Payper doing a rehash of Shoht B’s verse on You Got Beef, along with some other old lines from other cuts. I don’t know what album this one was intended for, or when it was recorded.

so, again. I can’t really provide much information, because I don’t have any. If you’re looking for more, there’s some on Grooveshark, and you can look at their myspace, which hasn’t been updated for a long time. But yeah, swag them out or whatever.



okay, recipe so you know how much I like all of you? I like all of you so much that I am in the goddamn library mixing this episode down right now. The library. I’m supposed to be doing homework now, order but no – I’m here with my laptop and my Korg nanokontrol and I can’t even take a bathroom break because I’m afraid someone might steal my equipment.

So yeah, I’m not writing long breakdowns here.

So here are the takeaway points for this episode:
1. I wanted to slab out some indiekid music, because:
    a. I don’t want any of my caucasian listeners to feel left out and
   b. I actually like a lot of indiekid music
2. As I said last time, Odd Future is seriously my favorite group/collective right now. Also,
   a. I have been saying “swag” and “swagged out” recently
   b. The title of this jawn is obviously a reference to that
   c. Seriously if you dislike my show but like rap, just go listen to OF for a few months, you won’t miss anything
3. Please keep sending me mail. I love that stuff. Even if you hate what I’m doing, that’s totally fine; tell me. Requests/concepts are also great. You should also hit me on twitter at @dexdigi.

okay, lets get into it.


introlude: dubcat – mario. Kid needs better titles.

OFWGKTA – Up (Screwed and Chopped remix). This one sort of inspired the whole episode.

overlay interlude – video message from @mamikonu. everybody get your eyes checked.
Sweet Trip – Acting. Off of You Will Never Know Why, which came out in 2009. Anyone that used to listen to my radio show in like 05 will remember that I played their old velocity::design::comfort record pretty much all the time. The new one is good, the older one I think is a little more mind blowing, but I recommend both.

Maps of Norway – Holland Tunnel. I think someone at my radio station put me onto this. I’m also pretty sure that none of these people are from either Norway nor Holland, which is sort of confusing but okay I guess.

The Whitest Boy Alive – Burning. These guys make pretty good music videos. The band name is also pretty good. They’re from Berlin, which is really confusing in the context of the last song, because Norway and Holland and Berlin are all basically the same place, but it’s not technically ingenuine since I think all of them are white, so at least they are being partially honest, if a little boastful.

interlude: Yo Gotti Interlude. Digitally enhanced by me. @officialyogotti.

Ohmega Watts – Interlude 1: Journey.

Big K.R.I.T. – Small as a Giant. I actually like this dude a lot. Dude being where he is from I’m pretty sure someone has actually done a better job slowing this one out, but whatever I did it myself. @bigkrit

Wiley – Off The Radar. Come on, this song is great. He spends a good three minutes ending every goddamn line with the words “black one”. This is one of those songs where slowing it down is actually useful, because it makes you realize how stupid intricate the wordplay is. Memorable lines: “Black men ain’t meant to have black cards, bentleys – got them anyway“. Jesus. “Black, black, black. I’m so black I could make a rat run”. Come on, man. Also, read this.

Casey Veggies – Networking. I think a lot of people are really paying attention to Tyler, but seriously, the entire OF, and a lot of people associated with them make, and have been making, a lot of really swagged out songs for a really long time now. Mike G actually did a version of this, but I couldn’t get a high quality link for it, and actually now relistening to this, I sorta like mine. @caseyveggies

N.E.R.D. – Inside of Clouds (Tyler, the Creator remix). This song is absolutely adorable. Come on, it’s about rain and taking baths and hot chocolate. We need more music like this.

okay yeah i realize prolly lots of you didnt like this one but thats ok. holler at a scholar



I feel sort of weird about putting this out, mycoplasmosis because I’m not sure how people will take it. But fuck it I’m 26 I can do what I want.

As far as the inspiration for this theme, global burden of disease there are two things:

First, and I’m not going to turn this into a language lesson, but there’s a term I always liked in Japanese: ベクトルの違い, “bekutoru no chigai”, which sorta translates to “a difference in vectors”. This can be used to express a difference of opinion that two people have – so if you happen to feel one way about something and someone feels another way, then you both have different “vectors”, or different “directionalities”. Which I think is sort of an interesting metaphor. So that’s where the name comes from.

The second is actually something I’ve always considered to be a truth about thinking about interaction between people. I tried explaining this to a friend of mine when I was maybe 17, and she thought it was horrible and pessimistic, so I never really shared it with anyone else again, but I still think it’s pretty valid. Of course, the little exercise we do in the intro is a very simplified version – people are free to change their angles at any time, and sometimes do – but not very often; especially after they’ve gathered momentum from going in the same direction for a few years. So this is not fatalistic, I’m not saying people are doomed from the start to never get along, but, you know, it’s better than blaming your friend or blaming yourself when you don’t see eye to eye.

So that’s what this episode is about – different angles, different directions. In a sense this is sort of a final chapter to the (what I am now retroactively considering) series I made with 118 and 119.

TLDR: I made a rap tape about people fighting. It sorta goes hard so you should listen.


introlude: Paul White – Cheese Special and a Draw (slowed. Maybe too much. I shouldn’t have done that, sorry.) paulwhite.bandcamp.com.
Paul White – Floating Free.

Doss The Artist – Outer Blue ft Flying Lotus prod Hir-O. Old dude got called out. Hir-O, by the way, is crazy with the beats and you will be hearing more from him here in the future. @hirobeats

Tyler The Creator – Inglorious. This cut is so heavy. Tyler is an absolute beast. I will say right here that there is no collective that I am more excited about right now more than Odd Future. If you do not like this, then you should probably take a break from this show for a while. Also, +5 points if you understand the Shake Junt reference. @OFWGKTA

Big Ken – Sweetest Thing Freestyle. I think I said this the last time I played him, but this dude can really sing. Took me forever to put this one together, but thanks for hooking me up with this one. @bigkenmrmoney.

Sway – The King Full Stop. It still sort of weirds me out that dude died. You ever drive by the house where a relative of yours that has since passed on used to live, and you start crying? @sway_dycypha

Earl Sweatshirt - Luper. I’m pretty sure we’ve all been here before. Earl is also just stupid with the flows – I highly recommend listening to more of this kid. Also, the intro on this is absolutely hilarious. Incidentally, this is Tyler’s younger brother.@OFWGKTA

Doss The Artist – Sasha Grey. Seriously, go check the rest of this tape.

Domo Genesis – Last Roll. Yet another Odd Future member. The creativity in this group is just off the wall. @OFWGKTA

outrolude: Tev95 – Purple Minks @supertev95.
dex digi – 声が好き[koe ga suki]. This is really more of a rework of someone else’s beat (mostly the voice samples), but I forgot whose. If this is yours, tell me, I’ll credit you. @dexdigi

so that’s this round. And yeah, if you do twitter or whatever, follow me: @dexdigi
