Big thanks to Canyon Cody who has been holding things down for me these past few weeks!  Ive got some new sounds to share. Come lounge and enjoy some of the finest rums on the east side of town. Just mention my name at the door for the hook up!  Cheers!

Taking off for vacation early Sunday morning but wanted to share with you some pics from Cana Rum Bar and The Goods at Zanzibar! Tonight I’ll be at The Sayers Club ducking from ice cubes, watching folks go ape nuts hanging from the the chandeliers and the usual madness.  Aaron Byrd sit in for me this Monday night on KCRW so make sure to tune in to his awesome selections.  But to compensate for lack of time this Monday night you can download my latest mix of PERSONAL FAVORITES.  Los Angeles If I dont see you at Sayers then hope to see you next week for LATIDO on the 16th, The Goods on the 17th etc etc!

It’s the end of Valachella. Where everyone that did not make it out to Indio ends up at the weekend residencies.  LATIDO at Cana Rum Bar is always a great way to kick off the weekend. Chill with the Salsero’s doing their thing. Friday was nice at The Goods at Zanzibar. Not like our usual “rah rah” vibes but nice to switch up the pace of things.  The wrap up at Sayers was the climax. Panties exposed, folks falling to the deck, ladies dancing on couche. Typical Saturday night and most importantly saw lots of fam in the building. Hope to see you next weekend!  Get some rest!

Tonight! It’s LATIDO at Cana Rum Bar! Just one block east of the Staples Center and hidden in a secret spot away from the madness.  Tonight I’ll be back on air w/ Raul Campos asking for your support from 10-11 pm then heading over to Cana for a night of world flavor and tropical rum!  I love this spot!  The staff are well versed on the amazing tastes and rum’s and the door guy actually smiles and ask’s how your day was!  Good vibes and energy.  Dj Destroyer warms up the room with his dancehall selections so get there early!  Just mention Anthony Valadez and/or KCRW for free entry/membership!  Hope to see you tonight LA!

Last weekend was fun! A great LA crowd of folks, friends and KCRW listeners inside this wonderful Rum bar!  I’m excited to be back this Thursday to do it all again!  Are you coming? You should. Come out and explore the amazing rum flavors served up by the very friendly staff at Cana!

The emphasis is world music but you never know really know what will get thrown into the musical soup !  This would be my all night musical curation of sounds from around the globe. As an Angeleno, well, I got a little of that every Sunday morning waking up in the San Fernando Valley.  What I love about the vision is the fact that rum from around the world is showcased and tasty too! The folks behind the bar really know their  drinks. They are cool and fun to chat with. I get to accompany the flavors with sound.  We will explore Brazil, Mexico, Columbia, Jamaica, India, Africa, and even East LA through music. Im excited!

Yes the rumors are true about this exclusive and tucked away gem. You must be a member of the venue for entrance however all you have to do is mention my name at the door and bam! Your good! You automatically become a member, enjoy the drinks and sounds. Through out the weeks I will be inviting guest dj’s and even live sounds.  So come through this Thursday (16 Jan 2013) for our opening night!  Hope to see you there LA!
