Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program
A staple in the Los Angeles left-field scene as one of the founders of Poo-Bah Records and a member of the Brainfeeder Records clique, Ras G's innovative beatmaking falls into the same stony, psychedelic style of instrumental hip-hop as fellow L.A. DJ/producers Madlib and Flying Lotus. After releasing six EPs and four full albums (Beats of Mind, Ghetto Sci-Fi, I of the Cosmos, and Brotha from Anotha Planet) in the latter half of the 2000s, Ras G had a notable appearance in the 2010 Stones Throw documentary Second Hand Sure Shots, for which he, Daedelus, J-Rocc, and Nobody were issued a challenge to take five dollars to the local thrift store and make beats using the albums they bought. Successfully demonstrating that his abilities could overcome difficult circumstances (in this case, using warped vinyl and a recording studio converted from a backyard toolshed), Ras G's creativity continued to shine for the next few years as well, with seven more EPs (including split 7" releases with Samiyam and Sun Ra) and four more albums, Down 2 Earth, Space Base Is the Place, and 2013's Raw Fruit and Back on the Planet.
