A Better Tomorrow spins Todd Rundgren tracks for his <i>Eccentric Soul Mix</i>

    “Todd Rundgren is an artist I discovered in my teens during the mid-’90s while thrift store shopping,” says A Better Tomorrow, a producer and mastering engineer whose addiction to that DJ Premier/Pete Rock classic New York hip-hop sound has fueled his creativity and is evident in his new album, It’s Diamond Dave, out now via iNSECT RECORDS.

    A Wizard, a True Star LP had me tweaking. Into a whole new level. Staggering catalog of music. What can I add to what has already been said about him. He’s a genius. Pretty much could care less about stardom and remained true to his creative spirit. Todd put out records the way he heard them in his mind with such bold experimentation and no rules. From prog-rock to pop songs to psychedelic collages. He remains a creative inspiration to me. This mix is just me enjoying his records & sharing some of my fav tunes like we always do about this time, kicking back at home.”
