CHI TOWN SNAPSHOTS

Big thanks to all who came out and stayed way past last call and the lights coming up! Big love to the Cuerators, Alejandro, Sughey, DjGC Lady Vee, Daveed and also the awesome folk I got to meet last night! Spent less than maybe 24 hours in the city but managed to take some snapshots of some randomness.

Last time I saw these dudes at during their Morning Becomes Eclectic session. They had the entire station shaking and two stepping as they played some of new tunes fresh off their new Stonesthrow release. I played w/ Davis Fetter a few times at Sayers and always lock his sound. Marion Hodges and I rock the turntables through out the night so make sure to swing by and say hello!

IN CONVERSATION | ZACK SEKOFF

IN CONVERSATION | ZACK SEKOFF

16 year old Zack Sekoff caught my attention with his beats and production work. I would later learn that this same kid plays bass, raps and had some production credit on Thundercat’s latest Brainfeeder release. Now 18, Zack opens up about his inspirations, doing musical theatre. what it was like to play Low End Theory and the night he learned of Austin Peralta’s passing.

This new heat out of Montreal on the Domino label caught my attention this weekend while prepping for Monday night’s session on KCRW. The new album is entitled “Flourish // Perish” and I’m looking forward to playing more this. Very hypnotic, soulful with melodic loops

RANT #9 | EDM AND THE CA$H KING$

I was asked by Facebook follower Phillip Clark to comment on Forbe’s article regarding EDM’s Cash Kings who brought in millions of dollars of income. There has been lots of criticism towards EDM culture and accusations that point out to just how crazy it is for someone to make 40 plus million dollars. Well, to be quite blunt, I see no problem with it. Find out why in this weeks rant!

RANT #8 | BREAKING BAD RECAP

RANT #8 | BREAKING BAD RECAP

After a long day around town Derek Taylor of The Park/Wallpaper and I ended up at the Sayers Club kitchen to catch last Sunday’s episode of Breaking Bad. Derek is not only an amazing drummer, funny dude but possibly the biggest tech geek ever. During the broadcast he and his band were on some kind of Google + chat recapping thoughts during commercial breaks. Absolute nerdery!

KCRW PLAYLIST | 6 AUG 2013

KCRW PLAYLIST | 6 AUG 2013

Technical difficulties may occur but the show must go on! Bad connections, changing of mixers and bad needles could not stop the greatness of last night’s show! This is kind of feeling like a Kanye rant but I assure you it’s not! New Sententa, Moses Sumney, Chance The Rapper, Blume feat. Anna Wise, Homeboy Sandman, Derrick Hodge and mucho mas! Take a listen to the show!

MOSES SUMNEY

MOSES SUMNEY

I wanted to post up that night video Mochilla recently did but this raw footage complete with it’s bad sound it perfect! The harmonies, the sampling, the melodies, the falsetto and the ability to watch this man create a song from scratch before your eyes is all inspiring! Watch!

STREET SNAPSHOTS

STREET SNAPSHOTS

Crazy weekend. I had no idea that lack of street mixed with self inflicted anxiety could make your right eye ball develop pressure. The dj residencies were all super fun and cracking. I was super bummed to hear about what went down Saturday on the Venice Boardwalk though. Peep the snapshots.

RANT # 7 | THE CHEATING HUSBAND

RANT # 7 | THE CHEATING HUSBAND

Sometimes this nightlife thing can get you into conversations and situations that you just cant write into movies. But other times you find your self having a human interaction with another human being in the midst of a mid life crisis. Last night I met a gentleman at a venue with his side piece. Meanwhile his wife was hundreds of miles away with his family. Hope you enjoy this week’s rant.
