One of my favorite producer’s drops by and talks about his musical journey that led him across the midwest to LA and now settled in London. We also play music that demonstrates his ability to jump from different styles but all come from an authentic place. Get to know Tall Black Guy!
Chi town drummer and recording artist Makaya McCraven swings through the basement in support for this Sept. 22nd LA debut at the Del Monter Speakeasy. We talk about his latest album entitled In The Moment as well as his creative inspirations in dropping that perfect beat. Hope you enjoy! For more info on his LA debut show, peep the details!
This week’s guest on the podcast is Dj and Grammy Nominated producer Twilite Tone. Man, do yourself a solid and google him! I really wanted to avoid the obvious questions of “What was it like working with Kanye West” and somehow I achieved it but it was definetly on the back of my mind. How did this one man balance producing for heavyweights and yet still maintain a connection to the streets and dj culture? Listening to this chat I found the answer, true passion for music and creativity. Twilite Tone connects the dots on possibly one of the most interesting but productive conversations in all my podcasts. Hope you dig! And go peep his soundcloud! Some great stuff there.

Big thanks to RedBull Studios in NYC!
The song has been out and floating on the net but finally a video which features the two rolling around in a drop top. Chance is really shaking up 2013 with his ACID RAP mix tape, feature on the new Red Hot Fela feature and appearances on HOT97. This time around we see him with electro soul crooner James Blake for an interesting blend of two separate worlds that work perfectly.
Looking forward to hanging with Miles Bonny once again and Dj Chicken George // DJCG in Chi town! Hope to see you my mid-west folks in the building at The Shrine! Bring your dancing shoes + lets do this!
