Excited to open for the amazing Alfredo Rodriguez Trio! I heard his amazing on NPR of leaving Cuba and wanting to link with Quincy Jones. It became his dream. (Listen to the story here) And somehow, someway it happened. Quincy also produced his debut release and now ART have a new release set to drop! I’ll be on the turntables opening for this amazing talent! Hope to see you there!
If you have listen to my most recent radio shows on KCRW then chances are you heard Mala’s new material forthcoming on Brownswood in October. Mala travels to Cuba and records, samples and produces music there for some time then sequences all the material with a bit of signature style of electronic dance patterns. This video really caught my eye. It’s great to see the locals really get into Mala’s dj set. Cant wait to hear the rest of this project! In the mean time make sure to keep it tuned to KCRW Monday nights for more Mala!
