(MP3 Podcast on 2010-09-13

Clutchy Hopkins has released 8 albums in the last 5 years but his (their?) identity remains a mystery. We got in touch with his first label Crate Diggler Records in january 2009 in order to license a track for the It's The New Hip Hop Thing compilation... Then we recently been contacted by someone from the Clutchy Hopkins Organization who jumped on our proposal to do a special Clutchy Hopkins mix on Paris DJs. But no concrete info leaked, so let's focus on the music: hard to describe, it's blending funk, jazz, hip hop, psychedelia in a groovy cinematic whole that's quite unique... and we're quite sure you're gonna love it!
