It’s been a minute since I hopped in an uber with the camera in hand but this was my calling. I wanted to be a fly on the wall and capture the emotions of the people marching in DTLA today but at times caught myself getting choked up. Seeing kids, families and normal folks like myself participating and from all walks of life really gave me hope about the future. Im always optimistic when it comes to hope but I remember not wanting to get out of bed the day after the election. Anyways, here are some of my snapshots from today’s Anti Trump Rally.

Looking forward to having Miles Bonny at City Beats, a monthly hand picked and curated series by yours truly alongside ArtsBrooksField. This all takes place at FIGaAT7th in the heart of DTLA. Joining me on the turntables is KPFK’s Francesca Harding with Miles Bonny making his LA debut!

Miles is an artist that has been long on my radar and in constant rotation on my show Monday nights on KCRW. He is never afraid of exploring any genre or style and adds his unique touch of soul on the mic and/or on the horns.

Hope you can join us this Saturday, July 16th 2016.

I’m super excited about curating this year’s talent at FIGat7th in DTLA. CITY VIBES is about showcasing locals and folks we simply love. I can’t spell the beans just yet but so far things are looking super soulful and I also brought on board a few buddies of mine to curate some special editions.  But our first edition is this Saturday and none other than RES!

RES and I use to do shows at the now defunct TempleBar and Little Temple.  I use to love opening for her cause you never really knew what she would do or who she would bring up stage. There was that one night she had a little known artist by the name of Santigold open up. I also had the pleasure of hitting the road with RES as we opened for Jean Grae and Talib Kweli in various cities. It was a real eye opening experience for me for to work with live musicians and provide the scratches and string samples.

This Saturday I hope you might join us for live music at FIGat7th! Come through and enjoy all the cool eateries in the area! I’ll be there as well hanging out and playing some records. Would love to see you there this Saturday. Swing through! It’s our pre Saturday night get down before I have to head to Sayers in Hollywood! (plug).
