- Billboard explained why it’s been a “game-changing Grammy year”.

- Pitchfork asked DJ Quik about his second-to-last album, The Midnight Life.

- FACT explored the essential songs of Scott Walker.

- Resident Advisor profiled Aurora Halal, one of the busiest promoters/performers in Brooklyn’s underground dance scene.

- Justin Broadrick revealed 12 of his favorite records on The Quietus.

- Clash caught up with Chuck D.

- NME ranked David Bowie’s 40 best songs with the help of St. Vincent, King Tuff, Johnny Marr and more.

- And on Wondering Sound, we revisited a classic blink-182 record with Tom Delonge, spoke to Electric Wizard, and dissected the Super Bowl’s halftime show.
