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!

I met Kissey a few years back while doing some shows in LA as well as joining me for a Dublab session. Her debut release Plethora release caught the attention of lots of djs at the station and somehow a friendship began to develop. It was nice to reunite and talk about her interesting journey as a young Swedish vocalist who transitioned into a NYC beatmaker dabbling into dance music. Hope you dig this one!

If you were there then you already know last night was one of the most amazing parties of the year at Chinatown! The kids, the community, the dancers, our friends, our new friends, our old friends all came out and seriously took the party to the next level! I kicked things with a few of my favorite records that get love every time in Chinatown then broke in some new gems then Dj Puffs followed. KG Superstar actually showed up super early which helped kicked off the night at a 10!  A special thanks to George Yu and the entire Chinatown staff who always curate something special in one of LA’s most exciting parts of town!  We had a blast!
