MBE Aug. 8: 808 and celebrate, chill yer bones, get down with new MJ Nebreda

Hosted by and

The date is August eighth (8/8), so you know we’re celebrating the prolific 808 drum machine! This device transformed music production in the ‘80s, and today can be instantly recognized in everything from underground beats to mainstream hits. Click play immediately for the instrumental version of Snoop’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” and stick around to listen out for that very special kick drum sound throughout the show. Cool points await you for your efforts.

Lean into the unexpected with us via “Bone Marrow Stem Cell'' from Berlin-based duo EASTER, comprised of writer Stix Omar and producer Maximilian Boss. Equal parts intriguing and terrifying. 

Plus, Miami based, Caracas born MJ Nebreda is back with dance floor ready, genre-blending Latin-infused sounds off of her recently released EP “Sin Pensar.” We’re excited about this young artist on the rise, who you may recognize from Ambar Lucid's MBE visit last month. 

Ready to get this week officially started? You’ve come to the right place.
