Looking back Saturdays have been super wild. In way’s I’m not sure Im at liberty to share. It’s an experience. You just have to be there to see for yourself. You know your holding down the right fort when the head honcho comes up to you and requests MC Breed, Janet Jackson or Xzibit. Hope to see you at The Sayers Club!
Saturday nights at Sayers is where folks either end up in the air, thrashing into the drum kit, hanging from some elevated place, on the dance floor, head bobbing on the couch or on the deck. Last night we managed to witness 2 out of the previously mentioned. Derek Taylor and I raged through the soundsystem last night inside one of LA’s mysterious and fun spots hidden on the corner of Hollywood and Wilcox. Watching folks faces the second they step into this home of musical wizardry is priceless! I had a lot of fun!
Another fun time w/ Derek Taylor behind the drum kit at Sayers! Peep the footage below!
Truly looking forward to wrapping up the Summer at Sayers in Hollywood! This week we welcome Yael on the drum kit. She and I use to play with RES while on tour w/ Talib Kweli and Jean Grae. Im excited to have her on board rocking out while I try out new ideas on the turntables and keeping the energy up! Should be lots of fun! I hope to see you Saturday night! Info below!
A big humble thank you to all the folks who came out to Sayers this past Saturday night! It was huge on so many levels. It was great being with so many friends in the building and I got to see lots of folks who use to come out to our old shindig at Little Temple/The Virgil and when ever I see these folks in the crowd at my current gigs it makes me want to just dj that much harder! It was also great meeting new folks who listen to the radio show. I am thankful to all of you who made it out! You are all AMAZING!!
Okay, back to the show! The madness began during our soundcheck. I was a bit skeptical of playing with a drummer cause I love to hear music the way it was originally recorded. Derek Taylor made it to the venue after recently landing in LA from a show with WallPaper in Canada and laid down the breaks on the drum kit and I just scratched and layered samples on the Midi pad and I cant quite explain how awesome it all came together. Our set began around 12:30 am and man! It was pure energy and madness that ensued at Sayers! I remember wiping my brow of sweat and out of the corner of my eye seeing people on top of furniture, boxes just going buckwild! Sayers was so packed we had overflow of people on the stage. I normally dont talk about gigs (I sometimes just take pics) but this is one of those moments that has been replaying over and over in my head. Hopefully venting this on my blog will make it stop!
Thanks to Itai for capturing this moment in time of epicness!
