Our 94th print issue, The Producers Issue, is on newsstands now, and it's one of our favorite things we've dropped this year: a token of appreciation to all the people toiling away behind laptops and stacks of gear to hunt down the sounds that take over our lives. To keep that spirit going, we're spending a week digging into beat culture with the folks that live it. We've got a roundtable of women producers, an investigation into how EDM promoters are trying to keep people safe while keeping drugs around, Fruity Loops tricks, exclusive interviews, and classic FADER features from deep in the archives. Rappers rap, singers sing, dancers dance, but none of it really happens without the beat. First up: Jamie xx shows us his favorite record shops. Don't blow out your speakers before the week's over.
