The hard-working group does good, and reveals what it takes to succeed in “turntablism.”
The life of a snail is metaphorical for human existence.

You don’t need a personality test to determine what kind of music lover you are. Today’s rival album releases ask all the right questions for you: Does Kanye West‘s highly anticipated collaborative G.O.O.D. Music album, Cruel Summer get your beat-cravin’ blood boiling?
