Welcome to Mixtape, our weekly feature where we hand the keys to the WASTOIDS Spotify account over to cool folks to share what they’re listening to.
For the last decade plus, Will “Brain A” Currier has cooked up a curiously genre-defiant blend of electronic music and post-punk grind, delivered with lo-fi hip-hop ease. Known for his work with cyberpunk artist N8NOFACE and now defunct instrumental outfit The Analog Sweat, Currier is currently holed up in his desert lab fine tuning work on a forthcoming project named BRAINFIEND, a collaboration with rapper Mykr Fiend X of the longest running hip-hop collective in Phoenix, The Avenue of the Arts Crew, which features collabs with Myka 9 of Freestyle Fellowship, Grandmaster Caz, and Sadat X of Brand Nubian. His beats can also be heard in WASTOIDS season one. For Yo! WASTOIDS, Currier offers a retrospective mix—15 years in 15 minutes—featuring his beat juggling skills, sound collage edits, and collaborations with N8NOFACE, Sadat x, Myka 9, and more. Check out YouTube and Instagram for more Brain A goodness.
