Thanks to Christine Mai Nguyen for chance to talk about music discovery among other things. Peep her youtube channel tho! Muy fuego!
Looking forward to joining the KCRW crew this year for SXSW and seeing new and emerging talent. My goal is to check out some of these folks listed below. Also make sure to check out the Tune In jump off on 6th Street! (Flyer below).
Chris is easily one of my favorite young producers of the past few years who drops great material. Wether it’s covers, collaborations, reworks, they are are always on point. It was great to have Chris in the studio to talk about the creative process and what inspires him. Hope you dig this week’s episode!
This man is brilliant. Having a footing in various musical genres, RocNation’s Sam Dew is a songwriter/songwriter who also executes well when it comes to his own material. I first heard his collaboration with UK dance king Julio Bashmore for a track entitled “Holding On” which is just about on Beats 1 just about 10 times a day. Sam kills it! I got to dig deep and learn more about Sam and his work with TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek as well as his comfort zones for writing. Hope you dig!
For the past 20 years, Jeff Staple has followed his gut despite the lack of finances, direction and family support. His name has popped up in so many magazines, blogs, articles and album art pieces that I had to hunt this man down. He’s been on the edge of what’s new and innovative with his creative agency while still maintaining one of my favorite boutiques in the Lower East Side. We talk about his journey as well as this thoughts on the changing landscape of music, life in NYC during the 90’s, why we can never have another Thriller album, the influence of Bobbito + Stretch and so much more. Hope you dig!
