THANKS SONOS!

THANKS SONOS!

Thanks to the crew at Sonos and Eddie C at Imprint Projects for the Play 3 player! I have been playing with it for the past few days and have really fallen in love with it. It has opened my eyes to the listening experience and the way we can just listen to any radio station from around the world in such a clean digital way.

Easily my favorite track on his debut Good Kid M.AA.D City. I use to play this track nonstop on my radio show. Then listening to him on a panel with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson really allowed me to gain more respect of this artist. But back to this track! The guitar licks and those rim shots fit perfect with K’s vocals which layer just right over this vibey track. It’s great to see a promo clip for this track.

Just got hip to this new brand based in San Francisco entitled DSPTCH. I have been searching for the perfect bag to transport my laptop and camera bog all in one. For the past 3 years while lugging it through out SXSW and around the country I find it’s much easier to keep the two together and compartmentalized.

IN CONVERSATION – FWMJ OF RAPPERS I KNOW

This week’s guest is someone who’s design work I had long admired having created covers for the likes of Foreign Exchange and many others. Through his work I had began to grow visible of his brand. Thanks to world of Twitter I was able to put a face with this unique aesthetic and i began following him and his opinions which would always give me a chuckle.

CONNAN MOCKASIN “IM THE MAN, THAT YOU WILL FIND”

CONNAN MOCKASIN “IM THE MAN, THAT YOU WILL FIND”

Played this on my radio show last Monday night and my phone instantly blew up friends wanting to know more about Connan Mockasin. This video was sent to me from a friend and I dug the vibes but knew very little other than the fact that he hails from New Zealand and creates some cool sounds. But this track is a heat rock! Certifiable!

RANT # 12 | 29 YEARS CRAMMED INTO 140 CHARACTERS OR LESS. REMEMBERING THE LEGACY OF NELSON MANDELA.

On December 5th we lost one of the most influential figures of our time. I saw the tweets and status updates in regards to the passing of Nelson Mandela but I just felt that being limited to 140 characters could serve his legacy no justice. What could I say or post that could capture my thoughts on such a wonderful life lived?

IN CONVERSATION – LeFTO

World traveler, dj, record collector and nerd/techie LeFTO swings by the basement for a chat about his insight on music, sharing sounds and his personal journey as a record collector. His perspective on life and music is always interesting and I have always wanted to sit LeFTO down and pick his brain about a few topics. Hope you dig!
