Black-Atlass

This is my everything at the moment. Black Atlass hails from Canada. No surprise since it seems like so much great soul and electronic sounds are coming from up north.  Part of the Fool’s Good label, his soulful delivery is soft and raspy in such a unique way. But those beats! The instrumentation! All blends well for these gritty songs with out too much fuzz or reverb. I’m digging this. Let me know what you think! And go cop his music!

Here is my second installment of WHAT I’M DIGGIN, my weekly installment of trolling the blogs and sites and blending into a blog post to save you time. I’m not a fashion head (and far from it). I prefer to wake up, throw on whatever is comfy and walk the dog but I think that’s kind of the common theme here.

I had the honor of visiting Pigalle in 2011 while doing some dj dates in Europe. I fell in love with this shop. It had a sense of LA’s Fairfax district. A group of local musicians and producers dragged me to this spot and the vibes were just right. Pigalle has hosted some wildness including a live set from Dead Prez. These kids have captured the LA/NY street wear aesthetic but on their own terms. Cool folks and glad to see them doing it!

Nick Wooster is the kind of dude I want to be when I grow much older in my skin. The stache, the cut, the military inspired attire. At 51 he still has a young spirit and articulates his vision to much youthful audience. I’ve been trolling his videos and secretly in the morning they kind of inspire my attire for the day.

This one is killing two birds with one stone. If you have listened to my radio show late last year odds are you might have heard a lot of Joey Bada$$. One of my favorite video directors Vashtie teamed up with him and shot a video for the track Waves. This “making of” video could have easily been another video for another song. What I love about Joey is his ability to bridge the golden era with the second golden era of today! Back to Vashtie! Did I mention she actually got to design her own Jordan sneaker?!

BEST OF 2013 PT 1

Here it is! Part One is now enjoyable on demand. Part Two’s playlist is up and possibly my greatest show ever in the history of being on radio! Hold tight for that stream. But this one was a great way to reflect back on all the releases that might be under the radar, above the radar, slept on’s and recent finds of old classics that got love on my show on Monday nights.  This one was super fun! Hope you dig!

Kae sent this over my way from Italy via email and I instantly fell in love with this video. After more exploring of her links I began to fall in love with her sounds! Let me know what you think! And Mister Bibal is no stranger! I got to meet him in Paris a few years back as he and his crew took me all over to the cool boutiques and record shops. Great to see him and Myth Sizer hard at work!  But back to Kae’s cool vocals! Go purchase that new project of hers when it drops on November 12th.  She passed it my way so make sure to tune in this Monday to hear some cool tracks on my radio show. You can peep last week’s episode in the mean time! 

Just got hipped to this video. I got to meet and hang with the producer Mr. MISTER BIBAL while in Paris last year and he and the crew really showed me a good time checking out all the cool boutiques. It’s great to see these young kids producing some great music out France! Like this cool video from Pink Tee.
