This is season three's premiere, featuring one of Not 97's strongest rosters of artists ever. With Ian Servantes at the table—Highsnobiety's current Social Media Editor, a former writer for Complex Media, and an illustrious freelancer—we discuss a wide range of sounds coming from London to Toronto, Illinois, Japan, and more.
The season kicks off strong with "Everglade," an enchanting new delivery from Collard, a young Londoner with a knee-weakening falsetto. We introduce Floyd Fuji, an exciting new solo project from Philly's Kyle Thornton, and discuss his unique brand of futuristic funk.
Midwesterner Mowgli floats through intricate flows on the sinister single "Dance With The Devil." We break down Adult Mom's "Full Screen," a playful, pointed track about porn, amongst much more.
