This week’s guest on the podcast is an artist who has been sending me nonstop heat for the past month or so. I think what instantly grabbed me was his ability to play straight instruments and create these great sonic textures over beats. It was unique and just the right flavor for my radio show. For the past couple of podcasts I had chatted with Grammy winners, movers and shakers but I wanted to shed more light on artists who are grinding to get a foot in the door. GDNA is one of those artists who openly discusses he barriers of being recognized for his work but now it’s paying off. I hope you listening to this chat as much as I enjoyed recording it.

Get familiar with his music on his sound cloud page or twitter.

Last night felt good! It was a crazy weekend and to just be able to hit the basement alone, dim the lights and play the music that I love felt good. Some serious healing for my soul and hopefully yours. New music from Tiny Hearts, Pusha T, Foreign Exchange, Elvis Costello w/ The Roots, The Foreign Exchange, Nosaj Thing, The Robert Glasper Experiment plus some Patti Smith, Los Pecos and Donell Jones in the mix .  I appreciate your ears and us keeping each other company every Monday night!  Hope you dig this!

One of my best investments is my camera. Life is short. I often wonder what my seeds might think when they look back at this blog. Im not really sure I keep a blog. Sure I love art, culture, changing tides in fashion and music but this is more than that.  This is a documentation of time and space. From everything I play on the radio to being allowed to have the freedom to do the things that I wish to do (i.e interviews, mixes, chats) and just capturing all that surrounds me.  It allows me to do things my way.  It’s not always the best way but its my creative hub to do the things that I feel get pushed aside.

When I look at these pics I am reminded of folks who took art into a direction that made them content at that time. I was in the right place at the right time to snap these shots of them in a certain place and they were okay with that. The trust between an artist and person with a camera is sacred.  I am grateful to be able to capture these musical movements with a radio show and a camera but I prefer to be on the front lines with camera in two, microphone on and ready to record.  I love to be in that space of creation. Being able to document it with a camera is exciting!  I encourage you to create your blog! Capture whats around you. Create a podcast!  Enjoy these snapshots! Let me know what you think!
