SNAPSHOTS VIA KCRW LISTENERS | A VISUAL CONVERSATION | WEEK 3

SNAPSHOTS VIA KCRW LISTENERS | A VISUAL CONVERSATION | WEEK 3

Last week I did this experiment where I asked KCRW listeners to send me pics of their listening environments. I wanted to see what they see. This week I think it’s fair to say the show was a bit more international! Big thanks to all the friends and fam who sent in pics this week! Take a look!

IN CONVERSATION | MAYLEE TODD

If you have been listening to my radio show for the past 5 years then odds are you might have heard a Maylee Todd record. I became intrigued after watching her amazing youtube videos that consist of sheer talent and humor. She is this week’s guest on the ANTVALA podcast and after our little chat it all began to make sense where all these elements came from. Take a listen!

THAT MINNIE BREAK

THAT MINNIE BREAK

One of the most famous breaks as used by Jay Dee, A Tribe Called Quest, Electric Wire Hustle and countless others. This sample/portion of the song alone holds its own weight. Mark de Clive Lowe has started his campaign to fund his next album and in conjunction of raising awareness he began creating these great videos. Watch this one!

THE PRECIOUS LO’S “MORE THAN JUST FRIENDS” FEAT. MAYLEE TODD

Seriously. Can someone tell me what is in the water up in Toronto? The Precious Lo’s sent me this track a while back and it fit well into my all radio sets and was in rotation but thanks to this awesome and fun video it looks like I need to break it once again. This one features Maylee Todd who was just featured on my blog a few days back. Grab some popcorn, sit back and hit play!

SNAPSHOTS VIA KCRW LISTENERS | A VISUAL CONVERSATION

I decided to do a little experiment. Traditionally in radio its a very one sided conversation with the dj or host curating the vibe. I always make it a point to interact and engage with listeners via social media weather it be with real time updates or instagrams. I thought about how I can make it a two way visual conversation by asking listeners to send me their environments in which they listen to the program. Check them out!

NYC RECAP | DAY ONE

NYC RECAP | DAY ONE

This morning I wrapped up my KCRW show then headed over to LAX to catch an early flight so I could I make it in time for the Co-Sign/Mophonics CMJ Rooftop party over looking midtown. Caught up with some friends, old friends and fellow dj’s Scribe, Atropololis and Still Born. Also had a chance to stop by and peep the guys from EVR’s Chillin Island. Big up Despot, Dapwell and Himanshu. Peep the pics.

JAMES BLAKE w/ CHANCE THE RAPPER “LIFE ROUND HERE” VIDEO

JAMES BLAKE w/ CHANCE THE RAPPER “LIFE ROUND HERE” VIDEO

The song has been out and floating on the net but finally a video which features the two rolling around in a drop top. Chance is really shaking up 2013 with his ACID RAP mix tape, feature on the new Red Hot Fela feature and appearances on HOT97. This time around we see him with electro soul crooner James Blake for an interesting blend of two separate worlds that somehow work.

Davis Fetter joins me this week for this week’s podcast for a great chat about his obsession with collecting 45’s and conveying his love for music. I first came across his music while opening for him at my Saturday night residency at Sayers and was instantly drawn to his live show. His love and appreciation for music is evident during this chat. Hope you enjoy!

KCRW PLAYLIST | 1 OCT 2013

After a wild weekend at the residencies, it was super nice to hold down the fort on the airwaves, make some tea, turn down the lights and put the needle on the record. Kicked things off with this cool cut from Nickelus F. Also peep the new cut from Japanese hip hop group Gagle as they flip the classic 80’s Spandeu Ballet song. Listen!
