Cool Calm Pete presents The Food Theme

When Cool Calm Pete isn’t serving up his trademark slow flow over heavy beats, you can probably find him in the back of his aunt’s restaurant in Manhattan’s Koreatown, chowing down on an array of home-cooked dishes. The New York-based MC and producer is a true lover of food: he used to host a Flushing radio show where he would blindfold guest and do on-air taste tests of Asian snack food and he even did a series of food illustrations for this column before settling on the mouth-watering shrimp sushi option. For this issue’s Soundtrack, Cool Calm Pete did some serious digging and compiled a multi-course menu for hungry music lovers.
