Last month DJ Self Help, he of Dance or Die and Alleyes Path fame, dropped his latest record, a hip-hop production showcase called Spud Love. If previous mixes like "The Ritalin Bounce" showed Danny Johnson's mastery as a party-rocker, this one is all about his skills as a beatmaker. And those skills are considerable.

Listen at Bandcamp to get hyped, then head to our Bands to Watch showcase Jan. 22 at Skully's, where Self Help will be closing the night down with a raging dance party.
