Every now and then we take off our headphones, put down the Wacom pens and talk to each other in a Jesse's Diets style about what audio/visuals we are consuming.

A fascinating look into some pivotal moments in the cultural phenomenon that is Hip Hop
A regular album for me this month has to be Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde by The Pharcyde. The bouncing 90’s hip bop beats have been getting me through long train journeys and preparing me for the day. Also, any track from that album pairs beautifully with the sunny weather and the post-lockdown vibes.
I'm not sure how this one slipped by, but I've only just discovered DJ Yoda's Home Cooking album from 2019. Probably because I'm not normally a massive fan of DJ Yoda - 'all that scratching makes me itch' But this album, for me, is a chilled, soulful kinda 90s 00s vibe that sits well with my constitution.
And, of course, the ever-favourite Unkle's latest journey into beats, samples and melodic vocals, is, well - just mint.
