2013: WOBC Staff’s Top Five Lists

2. Settle–(Disclosure)

3. Send A Prayer EP–(Motor City Drum Ensemble)

4. Boat Party–(Kyle Hall)

5. Caramel–(Connan Mockasin)

Top 5 New Music
Sivan: Vinyl Director  


1. Greg Stuart & Michael Pisaro – Closed Categories in Cartesian Worlds

Julia Holter – Loud City Song

3. Greg Stuart & Joe Panzner – Dystonia Duos

4. Greg Stuart & Antoine Beuger – Sixteen Stanzas on Stillness and Music Unheard

5. Tom Johnson & Samuel Vriezen – The Chord Catalogue; Within Fourths/Within Fifths

“I don’t listen to enough new music, but I do listen to a lot of New Music, i.e. contemporary classical music, which doesn’t usually take its form in albums. Here’s a small collection of what has, though. Greg Stuart is a wonderful percussionist who had an extremely productive year, performing works by Michael Pisaro and Antoine Beuger and collaborating with electronic artist Joe Panzner. He and Panzner will be in Oberlin in March performing their own music and a (different) piece by Pisaro. Julia Holter is now more firmly in the “pop” world, but she studied composition with Pisaro. Her newest album is, this is not really a hyperbole, indescribably good. Her background shows, but only in a good way. Finally, a recording that actually matters of an “old” classical piece (on the label founded by Beuger) – Samuel Vriezen performs Tom Johnson’s 1986 piece “The Chord Catalogue,” which systematically presents every possible chord within a single octave at lightning fast speed.”

Who is DJ Spanish Fly?



Danny Brown + DJ Spanish Fly

Friday the 13th – 12/13/13

10 PM @ The ‘Sco

Dj Spanish Fly didn’t invent gangster rap, but when you go back to the early 80’s and double-check who was pumping 808’s MAD GRIMeY and whose flow was MAD SLoW, he’s at the top of the list. Most well-known for his association with Three 6 Mafia, Spanish Fly’s style has remained the same over time, unstifled by changing fads. His rhymes are creepy, smooth, stoned slow and sly. Spanish Fly still has a slot on Memphis’s Hot 107.1 , recently released a new mixtape and has started touring in various cities across the country.

RBMA:Yeah it seems like that kind of Memphis energy has spread a lot over the past two decades.

SPANISH FLY:Yeah, all over the world, and that’s what I be proud about. I’ll be sitting back laughing every time I hear Drumma [Boy] do something with Drake or [DJ] Paul [of Three 6 Mafia] do something or [Yo] Gotti do something, because it’s just an accomplishment, man. (RBMA)

SPFlyMainWanna win a pair of tickets to see DJ Spanish Fly open for Danny Brown? Olivia S.’s show “We are Floating in Space” will give away a pair at Thursday at 5 AM. Here is what Olivia says about Dj Spanish Fly:

“DJ Spanish Fly reminds me of one of the first friends I made in high school…we would always listen to music together; we both liked music from the south, though I was more into Southern rock/blues while he liked Southern hip hop.  There were artists I knew like Lil Jon and Organized Noize, but I remember him also playing stuff I hadn’t heard before at the time like DJ Spanish Fly…for whatever especially loved the obscure track “Alright” off the A.B.C.D.E. album, and I couldn’t help but think back to that and smile when I heard about the show this Friday.  I’ve since explored more by DJ Spanish fly and can appreciate the simplicity and directness of his music/have much respect for the influence that he had on a lot of the hip hop coming out of Memphis during the 80s-90s.  ”
