The Micronauts in Urb

22/03/2018

Urb was a LA-based magazine about urban lifestyle, with the catchphrase “Future Music Culture” and mixing hip hop and electronic music before everyone else. Available in print from 1990 to 2009, it is now online.

The Micronauts was in its annual “Next 100” selection of up-and-coming musicians in March-April 1999. The following month’s issue included a great review of the compilation of early hip hop cuts “Celluloid – The Electro Years – Why Is It Fresh?”, which Christophe overseen for the label Distance. The Urb editorial team was a fan of the single “The Jag”, writing a nice review for the September-October 1999 issue and adding it to numerous playlists. Especially “The Jag” was ranked 6th among the best singles of the year by both Editorial Director Stacy Osbaum and Associate Editor Daniel Chamberlin. Last, the ninth anniversary issue of January-February 2000 featured a much-promoted article on the French New Wave titled “The French Revolution”, which included Cosmo Vitelli, Phoenix, The Tone, Rob and The Micronauts.
