Nick Rosen and I have a project we do under the moniker of LOS GIRLS. We have been working on new material since our last EP on Plug Research. Along the way we knocked out this cool rework of Cola by Toro Y Moi. In between sessions we would layer in drums, cello plucks and anything else that would complement this re work. Hope you dig! You can pick up our EP here.  Also you can preview Anthony Valadez’s new EP which drops Tuesday on I Tunes. Take a listen

Turntables // Sequencing // Keys : Anthony Valadez
Cello // Strings // Synths : Nick Rosen
Additional : Shaunte Palmer

Almost there! November 19th is the date for  on my first single set to drop on Plug Research. The forthcoming LP  features some of my favorite artist and musicians from around the world who collaberated on this project  which I am excited to share in early 2014.  The first single features LA emcee/producer/musician Zack Sekoff who kills the track “Zack’s Thesis“. I mean KILLS IT!  You can also get to know Zack, who was a recent guest on my podcast. Listen!  Remixes will also feature my band Los Girls (project with Nick Rosen) and Kalva Won. Both remixes really surprised me and are set into two different musical spectrums.  The video for the single  is set to drop in the coming weeks and features a few of our friends set somewhere in DTLA. You might recognize a few of them.  Big thanks to Holly Port for directing the video for Zack’s Thesis and also Ray Riarratana for camera assistance. Hold tight!

It’s out! This project took months and months to make but it was also the easiest project to created with Nick Rosen. This project began as I started work on my second album for Plug Research and I would have these incredible sessions with Nick. We would record 2-3 songs a day then we would have downtime. We began starting songs from scratch, go grab coffee, return and hit record. Sometimes we would take a dip in the pacific in between takes.  We were under the assumption this might be a great project to release ourselves so we would record with no rules, no structure and no idea where this might land. We involved our friends Derek Taylor (drums and percussions) and Jason Joseph (rhodes) to contribute and slowly the songs began to take form.  I took off for a week to NY and I began capturing these sounds with my I phone from Subways, art exhibitions in the Bowery and chopping them up and placing them through out the EP.  A week later Hurricane Sandy would strike these very locations and I wondered what has become of these places.  LOS GIRLS also became a visual project with the help of Kim and Xochil. We would all wander the streets of East LA and just capture things happening! Life in the process with the LOS GIRLS music as a bed.  We hope you dig!
