This week I am joined by Oshun out of Brooklyn NY. They stopped by prior to their RedBull Sound Select show with Raury. We chop it up about social media, being indie and their spirituality. Also in the building is my cohost of the Champion City Podcast, Novena Carmel who knocks out a guest Dj Set. Hope you dig!

Long time Community music curator Eddie Cota is the master mind behind this creative entity that explores LA’s relationship with current affairs, music, artistic movements and how the local scene is influencing the world. Long time buddy Novena Carmel and I host and Episode 1 features an LA newbie who approaches music in a very unique way. You might know his work via Antibalas or his previous releases that explore world sounds with 808’s and bass. Hope you dig our chat w/ Chico Mann.

Toronto’s Maylee Todd returns to the podcast for Episode # 80 co-hosted by Novena Carmel. I should note that prior to hitting record, we stuffed our faces w/ pal Sophia Chang at The Line Hotel inside Pot. (Shout out Roy Choi, Jess + Natasha!). On the podcast we discuss woman’s personal issues, Mushrooms in Joshua Tree, SXSW, the influence of Bjork, porno theaters in the 6 and other madness. Lots of nonsense but full of laughs.
A second podcast in week but with multiple brilliant minds covering ground on such topics as TIDAL, police brutality, Waco, Tech apps and silent meditation. I could not think of a better panel to discuss all these great topics with a sprinkle of humor that maybe 2% of you might get! But join in! Listen!
Shout outs to Novena Carmel, Zack Sekoff and Def Sound for joining me!
It’s been a crazy day as I prep for tonight’s get down with Hiatus Kaiyote + Low Leaf at The Roxy. Not exactly what records to bring but always a cool open crowd and vibe.

Joe Frank, Kamasi Washington, Lord Huron’s gear, Def Sound, Novena and Zack Sekoff, my Matt Dillon notes, Palm Springs, Emily King, Purity Ring w/ Jason Bentley, Cazal Organism and Aaron Byrd are all featured.

Here is my final podcast of 2014 and I figured who better to have in the room then two of the most active and open individuals who have intrigued me on social media. Michael Barnes is host of Melting Pot on KPFK and also a Lecturer at CSU Long Beach. This man knows his music! Novena Carmel is small bundle of positive energy and member of musical group Wallpaper. Together we talk about the events of that shaped and impacted 2014 as well as look head to 2105.
We talk Ferguson, Eric Garner, Iggy Azalea, race, Malaysian Airlines, Robin Williams, mental health, music and even compare President Obama to a dj. We also break down Black Messiah and our favorite records of the year. Hope you enjoy! This one is easily one of my faves!
We had a Breaking Bad Finale Party with friends and we had to do a wrap up! Novena Carmel, Shawniece Swain, Nick Rosen, Kim and I all watched not sure what to expect for the finale!
