Super good to be back on LA’s airwaves after a 2 week break thank in part to musical adventures across the country. Nothing beats being at home with my pup, eating at my local eateries and being back in the basement on Monday nights. New gems from Waldo with the Sango revision plus cuts from Jay Electronica, Oscar Key Sung, Jazzanova on the remix tip. On the young rap front, cuts from Nia Keturah, Chester Watson and Bishop Nehru who I saw at SXSW and kilt it to the point Nas had to come out and give this young emcee the co/sign. Speaking of Nas I dropped One Love in honor of the 20 year Anniversary of Illmatic. Personal favorites include the new Metronomy, BadBadNotGood and Schoolboy Q. Everything else is just fire! Hope you dig!

RAJFESTFLYER

Yes! This is really happening. Im trying to figure out a way to hang for all three days to catch some of these amazing acts on this wonderful piece of land. I’m excited to host and dj the kick off night which features some of my favorites including legends Chaka Khan and Roy Ayers! Speaking of which, did you ever download my Roy Ayers tribute mix?!
I’ll be giving away tix next week for day passes and 3 day passes. This might be the best way to escape the madizm of LA and retreat to nature and enjoy some of the best and influential sounds in the world!  I mean, look at that line up!
