Nick Johnson - Eardrumz & T-Bone Steak

Bonafide Seattle crate-digger EarDr.Umz and fellow beat cohort T-Bone Steak sampled, chopped and looped together this collection of head-nodding instrumentals and tagged it with the furtive title, Nick Johnson EP Vol. 1. It’s a passing homage to Captain Baltic (government name, you guessed it: Nick Johnson) who began his run as a resident jazz DJ in 1963 at KRAB, a listener-supported FM station with a politically subversive bent. This dusty sprinkling of classically-minded boom-bap rolls along in that spirit. Good stuff.
