Skate or Die: Summer Fridays 5.8

13 Jul

This week’s cover art was made by yearly Summer Fridays contributor and renegade digital street artist King of the Streets (KOTS) who, as you all know by now, values graffiti and property rights in equal measure. Hence, all his tagging is done via MS Paint. He also loves to shred and requested that this mix be something you can skate to. Well I did my best. There are some of the most aggressive songs ever committed to a Summer Fidays on this one (like GvsB) and maybe one of the most annoying (forgotten ’80s band The Sicilian Vespers, who I love). Plus, new tunes from METZ, The Soft Pack, Megaphonic Thrift, JEFF the Brotherhood and more. Rad?
