The Houston, Texas, neighborhoods of Fifth Ward, Third Ward and South Park have grown to be hallowed ground for modern rap culture, populated with celebrities, entrepreneurs, support networks and a micro-economy of their own. Photographer Peter Beste (photographer of True Norwegian Black Metal) and writer Lance Scott Walker spent nine years documenting the most influential style in twenty-first-century hip hop and the vibrant inner city culture from which it stems. Houston Rap, edited by Johan Kugelberg, profiles noted artists such as Bun B of UGK, Z-Ro, Big Mike, K-Rino, Willie D of the Geto Boys, Lil’ Troy and Paul Wall, alongside reflections on the lives of departed legends such as DJ Screw, Pimp C and Big Hawk. The book also features community leaders, rappers, producers, businessmen and family members, all providing an astonishing and important insight into a great American cultural narrative. In addition to featuring Beste’s previously unseen images of the contemporary Houston rap scene, Houston Rapincludes a detailed timeline charting the growth of rap music in Houston from its origins to the present.

Quasar (q-way-zar) noun/astronomy: a massive and extremely remote celestial object, emitting exceptionally large amounts of energy, and typically having a starlike image in a telescope. Castlemaine based beat maker and producer Ronny Quasar (aka Matt Rolfe) presents his second full length album Tropicality out now on bandcamp and on limited edition cassette. Tropicality draws on the mutations of equatorial music from around the globe, mixing break beats, psychedelia, wah, funk and percussion. Synthesisers swell like spinnakers in a long Caribbean sunset. Dusty drum chops and field recordings are held together by electromagnetic forces. This music is for peninsula hotels verging the jungle wilderness, where the DJ spins gold in a nightclub known as The Panther Machine. These beats are for the shark-hat seeker of tropical wonder in a vista filled with speedboats, exotic birds, rum and reefer over turquoise waters. The second single Catamaran evokes both the discoteque and the yacht club overseen by the glittering mysteries of deep space.
