Muro   45RPM Cover Museum by Muro Book

Fat Beats Memory Lane: On my first visit to Fat Beats NYC i bought  DJ Muro’s “King Of Diggin vol 1” on cassette a copy of

“On The Go” and  “Stress” magazine.

Known around the world as King of Diggin’, Muro is the Tokyo hip hop legend who is a rapper, DJ and a producer. Muro is known to collect rare vinyls as you would expect and his collection is so diverse that a book is curated showcasing the cover art of the 45’s. The 45RPM Cover Museum by Muro is a peak into the endless archives of Muro and he hand picked 220 covers for your viewing pleasure. It can be used as a reference to vintage sounds or cover art archive and it has been divided into eight chapters, Movie Theaters, Policeman/Cops, Showa Memorial Museum, Beat Museum, The Men, Sensuous Museum, Unharmonized and Highlights. This is definitely a must have book for any vinyl junkie or die hard hip hop heads. via: Rittor Music

    AMEN TO THIS! The lack of natural hasterylis for characters is ridiculous! I have had so many times where I wanted to give my women braids or dredlocks or twists, but couldn’t, because the default hair is always of Eurocentric standards!I also am a black woman with natural hair, and I mostly make black female characters. Game makers STILL have a long way to go .
