AUDIO: Son of Barkada – The Bar (prod. by DJ Nphared)


Prometheus Brown and Bambu are The Bar. They are on a West Coast tour. They have a new EP. Son of Barkada is a self-referential curio; an objet d’art for the Filipino community (and those desperately wanting to be down). Maybe, just maybe, if you’re on that Tyrese artwork, you too could be baptized in The Bar’s holy rap waters.

DOWNLOAD: Red October EP – DJ Nphared

DJ Nphared quietly produced the best SEA hip-hop song of 2010. The Physics’ “Coronas On Madrona” was a breezy soulful anthem that expertly captured the laid-back vibe of a typical Seattle summer.

The Red October EP is a four-track freebie from Grynch’s favorite DJ and features a few Town heavyweights like Sol, Thig Nat, Fatal Lucciauno, and The King of Ballard himself. Click below for the download link.
