This week we celebrate the posthumous Circles album by Mac Miller who was a big KCRW fan.  Circles finds the rapper transition into his Randy Newman (and sadly final) phase of journey with assistance from Jon Brion. Elsewhere Amsterdam’s Full Crate has a new single featuring Naomi Sharon plus Chassol out of Paris, Monsune, BK’s Theophilus London, Common gets remixed by Tom Misch and a new heater from Gothenberg’s sir WAS. We also highlight the sounds and connections between the recent passing of Jimmy Heath and NAS + DJ SHADOW. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving day I went out and snapped shots around LA with my camera and I put my I phone on shuffle and I totally forgot about this incredible song. Somedays when I feel shitty, tired and need for rewiring I turn to my I tunes. But this song always hits me in a special place. Today I searched for it’s video (if one were possible) but I found this fan made video which nails the visuals for such incredible lyrics. I hope you dig!
