Tune into Beats 1 radio for a history lessons on the Neptunes.
OVO Radio is a good place to discover new music, but if you're looking for some good old-fashioned knowledge, Pharrell's OTHERtone is the way to go. Today's show focuses on Skateboard P's early work with the Neptunes, bringing in his old creative partner Chad Hugo to talk, as well as Justin Timberlake and Tyler, The Creator.
Of course, JT worked extensively with the Neptunes on his debut album, Justified, which has been a subject of conversation on the show so far. Tyler, meanwhile, is a student of the Neptunes, so he comes to the table both as a fan, and a more recent collaborator of Pharrell's.
In between these knowledge darts is a perfect mix of Neptunes hits and deep cuts. You can tune into the show here.
