DDfinalDeathbomb Arc – one of our favourite niche labels – have two new cassette releases in the pipeline, one from clipping.’s Daveed Diggs and the other by Tampa, Florida duo They Hate Change. Full details – including streams – can be found below.

We at Louder Than War Towers have long time been fans of the irrepressible and unconventional Deathbomb Arc label. Well, since early 2011 anyway, as evidenced by this interview. They’ve been at the forefront of the alt scene in America for many years though – from way back before 2011 in fact, releasing early material by such artists as; Death Grips, clipping., Signor Benedick The Moor, Black Pus, and Julia Holter amongst others, artists who’ve used the label as a springboard to bigger things and far greater notoriety!

The second cassette is by Tampa, Florida duo They Hate Change who are described as combining…

“…an early 90s bedroom production style typical of K Records and early Beck with laid back, super cool raps of acts like Masta Ace Incorporated and the Pharcyde”
