40 Oz Van's Playlist
We recently teamed up with 40 Oz Van for his annual 40 Oz Bounce event, which went down in Washington, D.C., this year. After 40 made his way back to NYC, he came into the office to give us a play-by-play of the event.

It's called 32 Zel / Planet Shrooms, and features a few previously released tracks like "Bwoii" and last week's "Captain Sea Fonk."
