Welcome to this week’s “WHAT I’M DIGGING VOL 4  (THE VALAL ESSENTIALS). I have received great feedback so I thought I’d kick off this week with what I’ve dug up from the blogosphere.

_________________________________

New Little Dragon in the works! Great piece by Yours Truly! A great glimpse to the creation process in this short video. Looking forward to hearing this new record! Watch!

Big up King Deluxe for passing this my way. I have played several cuts from Segilola on my show. Bambooman is behind the production and creates one of the of the coolest sounds!

I just recorded a session for Boston’s WBUR/Here and Now and included this version in my selections. I mean, how amazing and beautiful is this track stripped down and in an acoustic arrangement? The Disclosure version hits hard but this takes the holy cake. Sam Smith really does his thing on the chorus accompanied by the strings.

Have you seen this doc yet? Well what are you waiting for? I believe you can watch it on Vimeo! I had the pleasure of talking music with Cheryl Dunn, the film’s director and producer. Cheryl captures the art of street photography and documents the various styles by folks with cameras. I think this might be my 4th post on her work. Peep below.

Last but not least, if you are not hip to Baratunde Thurston, the please get to know him! I loved his story in Fast Company which he breaks down a cleanse from social media. You can read about it here. He has been a source of inspiration in how I approach social media with on the fly blogs and podcasts.

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. Apologies for the crackles and hisses from the vinyl but it still sounded great at 2 am! New gems from Isaiah Rashad, Takuya Kuroda w/ Jose James, Gilligan Moss out of Chi town and much more. Hope you dig this week’s session. Out of Japan new drops from the Jazzy Sport crew via Dj Nature and Slick Team. And straight from the crates is Kimiko Kasai covering Stevie’s As featuring Herbie Hancock. Heat! Go listen!

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. Excited about the records from Ana Tijoux, Sango, Phife and Sam Smith! Also big thanks to LA band Moonchild for this Jazzy Jeff/James Poyser remix! Got that minutes before my show and was excited to drop it into the set.  Hope you dig this week’s show!
