A Tribe Called Tes
I have been a massive Tes fan since I moved to NY years back. I still remember the spontaneous vinyl parties that would pop off in my Bushwick apartment and how I would drop “New New York” off his “x2” record released by Lex Records (the label that put out the hottest left field hip hop by Danger Mouse, Prince Po and Tes). I never dreamt that Tes himself would end up being behind the very turntables I djed his music from, but a few years later I moved to another loft in Bushwick and bumped into him. He became a mainstay for our house parties to the point that I wouldn’t let anyone but him DJ my engagement party. That said, it gives me a huge amount of pleasure to be the first one to let the world know and download his upcoming mixtape, “A Tribe Called Tes,” since he sent me the rough cut, I have not stopped bumping it. The mixtape will be your go to summer jam, trust me!
