CERTIFIED NEW: April 2012 mixtape
'CERTIFIED NEW is a month by month mixtape of the best new music'
April has been a pretty similar month to March in terms of quantity and quality, except this time we didn't have the beast that is SXSW in the way.
In celebration of Tupac's notorious holographic appearance at Coachella we thought we'd treat everyone to some words of wisdom from the man himself. Leading nicely in to the atmospheric beauty of Purity Ring's "Obedear" and the in-yo-face grit of Cadence Weapon on "Conditioning". The mixtape then lends itself to the ever reliable John Maus, Work Drugs and Outfit, each one smooth as hell in their own individual way.
