It’s hard to overstate Basta’s contribution to Russian hip-hop. For years, the rap champion has been creating game-changing hits, while also providing a platform for a wide range of talent via his label Gazgolder Records. It’s this keen ear for fresh sounds that he brings to his radio show Musical Bazaar—along with a chance to reconnect with fans after lockdown. Every Tuesday over the next 12 weeks, Basta meets fellow radio host Sam and DJ Karina Istomina to discuss music, sports, events—and, of course, favourite new tracks. Join them as they chat with a rotating cast of in-studio and virtual guests from Russia and the world, trading hand-selected tunes from the best in the game.
