Episode 17: BEFORE THE INTERNET - with Geng PTP

It’s been a tough year for New York. This episode we check in with Geng, the man behind one of our favorite labels, Purple Tape Pedigree, and see how these fine “purveyors of weaponized media and information” are handling the pandemic and the uprisings. With live performance no longer an option, the model of mutual support demonstrated by a crew like PTP is all the more important. Geng tells us about the history of PTP, the benefits of peer-support, community activism, and why it’s more important now than ever to understand hip hop as spiritual music.  Interview recorded between Montreal and Queens, May 2020 and January 2021 Produced and mixed in Montreal, February 2021 Read more at: http://acloserlisten.com/2021/02/19/sp-episode-17-before-the-internet-with-geng-ptp-podcast TRACKLIST ARTIST – “TITLE” (ALBUM, LABEL, YEAR) Milford Graves with Sunny Morgan ‎–  – “Nothing 19” (Percussion Ensemble, ESP Disk, 1965) INTRO Raekwon/RZA – “Ice Cream (instrumental)” (Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…, Loud, 1995) Amani + King Vision Ultra – “An Unknown Infinite” (An Unknown Infinite, PTP, 2020) King Vision Ultra – “excerpts from B Side” (Pain of Mind, PTP, 2018) Amani + King Vision Ultra – “Guillotine” (An Unknown Infinite, PTP, 2020) Milford Graves, Marshall Allen, Henry Grimes – “(live excerpt)” (Angel Orensanz Center / Arts for Art – 4 Dec 2012) Geng – “Iron Man (Chopped _ Slowed by Geng)” (Screwing Yourself To Live: A Chopped & Slowed Tribute To Black Sabbath, PTP, 2012) YATTA – “Bliss” (WAHALA, PTP, 2019) Dis Fig – “Excerpt” (An Atypical Brain Damage, PTP, 2018) Moor Mother – “This Week (Feat.
