World Premiere: Ghost McGrady – The Life of A Doppelgänger

11:11 AM PDT on May 26, 2016

New Los Angeles sends us word of an up-and-coming young producer based in Koreatown who goes by Ghost McGrady. His style of meandering instrumental hip-hop is just what you need to peace out and burn one on a Thursday in Los Angeles. Listen to his first track with New Los, The Life of A Doppelgänger, below. 

The tune is the lead single from Ghost McGrady's "Fugue State" release, available May 27th on cassette tape, as well as a free digital download. More info at

McGrady will appear at tonight's Record Store Night, where several of our favorites, including Groundislava and House Shoes, will also be playing music, usually exclusives and rarities. Check it out at High Fidelity, 1956 Hillhurst Avenue.
