Real time Adventures // VALA FM

2020 is sounding amazing despite it’s challenges. Coming into the studio for the past two weeks have been hard. I’ve noticed the homeless population in my community increase, the amount of closed shops. And I take that all with me each time I’m sitting in the studio wondering what my first song will be, and how to reflect what’s happening while at the same time trying to help ease minds. But I’m here for it. We must not stop. And we must vote and continue to help one another.

I’m grateful to soundtrack your weekends. This new Vulpeck w/ Joey Dosik is fire! Also new Sault, Frankie Reyes (Stones Throw), Yellow Days, Omar Apollo, Hudson Mohawke, Okay Kaya and Cautious Clay all sound really amazing! Hope you enjoy!. Be safe + lots of love.
