Since 2009 this band has had my attention. With the release of their self titled debut, Electric Wire Hustle had held my attention. I still pop in that record which stands against the test of time and hits hard. Fast forward to 2014 where Mara TK and Tay drop Love Can Prevail which instantly sounds nothing like the debut but in a very good way. It’s a new sound and a new direction with that timeless soul that only EWH can execute.

The band dropped by the HQ and dropped knowledge on the creative process as well as paying homage and giving love the source of their sound stateside. We were in absolute post party mode and the vibe was just ride and a full on celebration. Hope you enjoy!


Illa J and Frank Nitt swing through the basement for a candid chat about the new album, the selection of beats and what it’s like recording in the middle of parades, honking cars, midgets and folks walking outside in beat to the recording sessions. We also get to know Illa’s journey as a musician and what it was like growing up in the Yancey house. Nitt breaks down the album and all the amazing guests on the new record “Sunset Blvd” which is out now on Delicious Vinyl. Enjoy this week’s chat! Some great knowledge and tales on this one.

Listen to previous episodes with Anthony Valadez here :



I knew Jeedo was in town so I had to grab him and his new project Tiny Hearts for a chat about this brilliant new project featuring Tim K and Dede. One of the magical moments for me to witness was hearing the three vibe off each other while I simply stood back and narrated. There was lots of energy and hearing the three talk about the creation process was informative. You get a sense the three are on a creative high and really really enjoy working with each other. Listen to the chat and go buy the EP! Links are below.  I hope you enjoy this week’s chat w/ Tiny Hearts.
