Derrick Curtis
The next BEATLIFE show, thrown by the Asheville Beat Tape Collective, happens Saturday, 9/17, and is a tribute to the late North Carolina producer DFLN (Derrick Curtis). A lineup of special guests and friends of Derrick will show support and love at West Asheville's Mothlight.

PHAZE GAWD
Charlotte rapper PHAZE GAWD (Tony Potts) recently released Definitive Theosis, a new EP produced by deceased artist DFLN, and it's powerful stuff. We talked with the GAWD about music, politics, race, and the state of hip hop in North Carolina and the country. PHAZE GAWD plays BEATLIFE at the Mothlight on September 17th.
