Gangs somehow popped up on my radar with the lush and dark track “This Time Around“. I did my research and found out these mysterious folks were in LA and on indie label “New Los Angeles“. I began playing a couple tracks off their EP and knew instantly I wanted to talk and get to know what inspires this sound.

We made home at The RedBull Studios in LA for a Sunday evening and chopped it up alongside Luis Blanco who helps run the label alongside the duo. And we get to hear material from Tom Ward (who is on New Los) as well as an exclusive listen to the bands new material!

Big thanks to Eric Stenman for engineering/production assistance, Red Bull Los Angeles for the studio space and Chase McCurdy for photography.

This week’s guest on the podcast is Dj and Grammy Nominated producer Twilite Tone. Man, do yourself a solid and google him! I really wanted to avoid the obvious questions of “What was it like working with Kanye West” and somehow I achieved it but it was definetly on the back of my mind. How did this one man balance producing for heavyweights and yet still maintain a connection to the streets and dj culture? Listening to this chat I found the answer, true passion for music and creativity.  Twilite Tone connects the dots on possibly one of the most interesting but productive conversations in all my podcasts. Hope you dig! And go peep his soundcloud! Some great stuff there.

Big thanks to RedBull Studios in NYC!

Here is Episode One, the kick off to a series of conversations I had in NYC last week with some amazing artists across the creative spectrum. Jesse Boykins III has one of the coolest and smoothest voices in the game but is also a visual treat to watch on stage. He just dropped his new album entitled Love Apparatus which I finally got to finish on the plane back to LA.. It’s an amazing journey from start to finish that explores human connection with one another with an awesome sound pallet to accompany the record.  We discuss his creative process when working with producers including Machine Drum as well has his vocal studies with Bilal. Hope you dig!

Got to visit the Red Bull NYC building today and explore the Write Of Passage exhibit which explores the impact of American graffiti art on global culture. Mass Appeal did a great job putting this together which includes a giant SKEME piece and a reconstruction of an actual subway setting.  It was also cool to check out the RBMA radio station in the building and meet some of the great folks who are making things happen at this wonderful institution that supports creativity and community. It was also a pleasure to meet co-founder of Ego Trip/Mass Appeal Sacha Jenkins who had lead a workshop  earlier in the space and is also curating the WOP exhibit. It’s open to the public! If you are in the city make sure to swing by and check it out! More info can be found here.  Thanks Shelley + Hannah and all the cool folks for the great visit!
