CULTURE + REAL TIME ADVENTURES
Brand new Mariel Mariel (Chile), Tyler, The Creator, Hiatus Kaiyote, Quiet Dawn (Paris), Illa J w/ Kaytranada + a recent gem from Billy Cobham getting reworked for this Souls Of Mischief tribute track. I’m loving this Psychic Mirrors 12′ as well. Another recent find in the record bins is this Ihan Al Munzer out of Lebanon recorded in 1969.
Brooklyn’s very own joins me for a very candid talk regarding where to eat in their local neighborhood, tour life and the joy of sleeping on different beds in different cities.
Shout outs to 4th and Spring for the invite to check out some cool hidden treasures in DTLA in abandoned living areas and helipads resting high above the city and guarded by patrols.
Another session wrapped in the books! Exclusives from Miles Bonny and Moonchild! Also new gems from Schoolboy Q, Darius, Jesse Boykins III, Kelis and Mara Hruby. This session is definitely all over the musical spectrum. Hope you dig!
My 2 year old French Bull Dog Smedley Butler Chiou swung by the studio for a quick chat regarding his acting career and rumors about his latest Hollywood fling. Smedley always drops knowledge.
Yesterday I was stuck in DTLA with some time to kill and the camera was just sitting there looking at me. I had to go explore Grand Ave, Silverlake and around LA with 3 hours to kill and thats what I did. Hope you dig these snapshots!
I had fun opening for Ximena Sarinana at The Hammer Museum last night. The cool after work folks stumbled in and it was cool to meet some listeners of KCRW and chat it up a bit. The Hammer really did a great job setting up the VIP lounge for members of the museum complete with a ping pong table and cool seating. Peep the pics!
This guy might be the future of music. His new album drops soon. I love it. Start to finish! Middle Of Things, Beautiful Wife really moves me as a music lover. Pre order the record, turn down the lights and thank me later!
