FERNANDO FALCAO 

I’ve noticed I spent way too much time focusing on new artists and wanted to dig in the crates a bit. I came across this album last week and specifically this song which just hits all the vibes with the strings and children’s choir. Album artwork is super fresh too! Fernando is still alive and lives in homeland of Brazil. He lived in exile in Paris as a participant in activism against Brazil.

 

 

JAKOB OGAWA

22-year-old Norwegian Jakob Ogawa hits the spots with this single. Summer vibe for a Fall day is how I would describe this tone.

 

 

SUPER ELCADOS 

This band hails from Nigeria and it spot on in it’s connection to 70’s JB sounds. Sadly the band only recorded 3 albums. Thanks for Mr. Bongo you can grab their sounds.

 

 

SAN SIMON

It was this cover of Stevie Wonder’s Golden Lady that first caught my attention. I thought this was an old recording only to find out it’s an active band out of New York formed in 2014 and blends soul with afro rican rhythms. More info here!

 

 

MAMA’S GUN

Takes guts to name your band off a Badu record but these gents from London nail some gritty soul. They have charted in Japan with a remix from Mitsu The Beats.

New Taylor Mcferrin, BIG K.R.I.T, Blood Orange, The Brand New Heavies cover K Dot, MNDSGN, Khruangbin and new under the radar finds from Schreyer & Bartoli, Laundry Day, Iris Temple, Riz La Vie and more! Enjoy!

Backstory. I normally get into the KCRW basement an hour before MBE when covering for JB. But this morning, I opened my eyes with only 20 minutes to get to the station and be on air. I jumped up with panic, brushed my grill, grabbed some records, my laptop and flew down Pacific to Pico in my Scion. I made it! I was out of breath and not really mentally set and prepared but I was confident. What happened during the next 3 hours was magic.  I ended up knocking out one of my favorite all times sets on the show I had grown up listening to as a kid. What folks may not know, MBE is like flying an airplane. You have to prepare to take off, maintain altitude, check distance and calculate your settings and time.
AIR VALA flight 89.9 seemed like a smooth trip.

This was the final Morning Becomes Eclectic set of the year and I wanted to take it out with a bang. Feedback was so strong I had to post it to my mixcloud account in the event it fades from the KCRW archives. Hope you enjoy. It’s always an honor to serve the community with the music I love.

It’s been a minute since I hopped in an uber with the camera in hand but this was my calling. I wanted to be a fly on the wall and capture the emotions of the people marching in DTLA today but at times caught myself getting choked up. Seeing kids, families and normal folks like myself participating and from all walks of life really gave me hope about the future. Im always optimistic when it comes to hope but I remember not wanting to get out of bed the day after the election. Anyways, here are some of my snapshots from today’s Anti Trump Rally.

This week I am joined by production duo Snakehips. They just dropped one of my favorite singles of the year with “All My Friends” featuring Tinashe and Chance The Rapper. Also, this week new 20 Syl remix of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Pusha T, Dj Snake w/ Bipolar Sunshine + a mix of Snakehips remixes all packed into this one hour set. Hope you dig!

Mood Swings air’s every Tuesday evening on Dash Radio. 11 pm EST/8 PST.

Here is my episode with Colombia’s Bomba Estero. Last time I saw BOMBA was at the Red Bull jump off to help celebrate their latest release entitled Amanecer. We discuss the creative process as well as what it’s like to get a random call from Will Smith who want’s to hop on the remix after a long hiatus from music.

Mood Swings airs every Tuesday evening at 11 pm[EST]/8pm[PST]. It’s a really dope show on Dash Radio. Tune in tonight as I welcome Snakehips!

The past few week’s have been a cooler coaster. Getting re tweeted and grammes by Rosario Dawson was kind of cool but attending Manifest Justice and hearing Trayvon Martin’s mother speak was tough. Also tough was the vigil for Brendon Glenn who was shot and killed by LAPD.  Following all this was our KCRW Pledge drive and hanging out with mother was kind of cool.  Hope you dig!  Follow me on instagram!

Check out 4th and Spring’s work here.  More snapshots on the way! Check back soon!

I had fun opening for Ximena Sariñana 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. The food trucks were also out and I managed to grab a quick Cookies N Cream bite from Cool Haus. Eric J Lawrence was on hand to take the night out with a bang!  Big love to all who came out. Summer Nights at The Hammer continue into August on Thursdays.. Check em out!
