On episode 35 of Noisey on Beats 1, we're bringing a load of world premieres to you. For the majority of our show, we'll be handing the reigns over to Father and Abra of Awful Records, where you'll be the first to hear some new tracks from both artists. But before that, we're giving you an awesome and eclectic mix of songs to put you in the mood for Awful Records' takeover. The show kicks with a new song by Texas rapper Robbie B titled "Falcon Punch," produced by Left Brain of Odd Future. We'll also be playing Chicago's own Lucki Eck$, Sweden's most prized resource Yung Lean, the fun and lovely sounds of Diet Cig, and we wrap it up with the post-punk goodness of Sioux Falls.

Few record labels can create a culture around itself like Awful Records has. With the vision of artists like Father and Abra, they've created a brand for themselves that encapsulates their own crazy, fucked up take on hip-hop and aesthetics. The two of them visited us in our office in London where we talked to them about the label's rise, what they've been up to, and what we can expect in the future. To give a sample of what's on the horizon, we're premiering four new tracks from the label, including Father's new "Why Don't U" featuring both Abra and the super chef himself, iLoveMakonnen. We've also got two solo track from Father and Abra, and a remix of that iLoveMakonnen jam.
