CULTURE + REAL TIME ADVENTURES
New gems from Flamingosis, Lee Bannon, Frank Ocean, Quantic, Panda Bear + more!
Went into this session with a case of the Mondays. Over slept and was not as prepared as I wanted to be. But for the first time I figured this show would be a magic of the moment and it turned out to be a fun session. Broke out some of the vinyl towards the end of the set.
Wheeew! Right before heading into the basement for this show I came straight from a gig in DTLA and recorded two podcasts along the way then went into the studio and it was my cool down time! Dimmed the lights, turned on the turntables and broke out the new and old out of the record bag.
Well this just fell out the sky. One of my favorite tracks from Channel Orange has an official album that documents the life and times of Grammy Award winner Frank Ocean. I dig the vintage aesthetics. Peep!
New James Blake! Contact Field Orchestra! Kool AD formerly of Das Racist! Mister Lies y mucho mas! I began the mix with some old and new gems and had a certain direction I wanted to go in but checked my inbox and due to requests had to end set one with a Donald Byrd tribute including Black Moon’s “Buck Em Down” which was the record I first purchased that introduced me to the sounds of the late great. Listen!
I hate these things. Especially when 2012 was a year of great albums! Not only was this past year an amazing year for music but a great year for self releases. 3 of the albums below were self releases. Check out my Top 10 albums of 2012 here.
