Let the Record Show – the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl – continues with its “Socially Distant Series” of video-conference episodes. Episode 47 features Southern California underground hip-hop duo Blu & Exile.
Having just released their new album “Miles: From an Interlude Called Life”, Blu and Exile join hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace to dig through some of their favorite songs of all time.

Producer Exile also gives a status update on his Emanon reunion album with Aloe Blacc.
