Omid is one of my first guest’s that I had on back when I had a radio show over at KCSN in 03. 12 years later we bring it in full circle and he’s still hard at work with his recent release entitled “Modern Persian Speech Sounds” which I play on my KCRW show. But one of the other reasons I wanted to bring in Omid on the podcast was for him to share his knowledge of Los Angeles’s musical landscape dating back to the late 90’s.

He too was a kid who loved taping radio programs including Michael Mixxin Moor, Mike Nardone and Rob One of the Fly ID show. We also speaks fondly of his days venturing to The Good Life and Project Blowed. He also speaks of his role as Music Supervisor on the recent Good Life documentary which was directed by Ava DuVernay. And little did I know she was an emcee at The Good Life!

** Also as a bonus, Omid crafts a special mix for this episode which includes some unreleased material as well as personal favorites. And it’s got some heaters! Im super proud of this episode! Also make sure to stay up to date with his work via his souncloud page.  Hope you enjoy this week’s episode!

I finally got this brother into the studio! Cazal reached out to me and sent me a batch of remixes and beats that blew my mind. His ability to bridge different genres and sounds together is effortless. Listen in as we discuss his creative journey and process in crafting his sounds. Also big thanks to Cazal for the special mix you can hear at the wrap of our convo.

Joining us is Zack Sekoff on co-hosting duties and has been on this podcast previously. He is currently wrapping up his first year of studies at Yale in addition to having worked with the likes of Def Sound, Thundercat and more. Also make sure to check out his podcast, Mass Minimal!
