Adult Swim commissioned OG Ron C, and DJ Candlestick (of The Chopstars) to remix Little Dragon’s Nabuma Rubberband , one of my favorite albums of 2014, with their ChopNotSlop sound. I’m usually not big on the chopped n screwed style, but the two work together well here.

Oozing Wound is a thrash metal band from Chicago whose 2013 album Retrash is one of my favorite records released last year. Adult Swim’s 2014 Single Series just put out their most recent track, “Drug Reference” and it’s aggressive and fun. Listen to it below and be on the lookout for their new album Earth Suck when it drops October 21, 2014.
Captain Murphy debuted a few weeks ago on Adult Swim’s music label, but little else is known about the gravelly voiced rapper. While a lot of people suspect that it might be beatmaker Flying Lotus on the mic based on his relationship with Adult Swim and his established affinity for naming himself after Adult Swim characters, the few tracks out now are all kinds of awesome. Hopefully we’ll hear more from this soon.
