transmissions_011// kamal rasool’s torch of the mystics mix

How important is it to take in what’s around you, or rather, things that aren’t around you? A lot of these songs are from different countries around the world and in some cases have even been assimilated into one cohesive

transmissions_010 // tiana reid’s summer of work mix

When I listen to dancehall I either cry or think of summers spent in Jamaica—or both. Like everything, dancehall is complex. But its complexities won’t wait for you to make up your mind on whether you like it or not.

transmissions_007 // syma tariq’s queendom mix

The seeds of this mix were planted with two artists in mind: the empress of dancehall (turned avant-garde guest vocalist) Warrior Queen, and the feminist voice of hip-hop (turned Oprah figure) Queen Latifah. It grew into a tribute to queendom

transmissions_006 // teju cole’s mushtaq mix

After I made my Capacity Mix for The State’s Transmission series, I realized that there was more I wanted to do with the question. There are any number of possible soundscapes for this cruel and petulant “war.” This new mix
