Not only did he drop an incredible EP entitled PwEP2, but this man is writing grants that incorporate the parallels between insects and African Amercians, teaching courses in Afrofuturism and experimental music, playing out with various communities across LA at the ACE and NY jazz scenes. And then on top of that you find him playing with Karen, the house band for the Late Late Show on CBS! This turned out to be a great chat. Hope you dig!

MoodSwings airs Tuesday nights at 8pm [PST] on Dash Radio.

Last night in Brooklyn was incredible! This whole trip was incredible. It was great to see soo many friends from all over the world come out and get down with us! The jump off at FREE CANDY was something. Big big big love to all the folks at Redbull Sound Select // Move Forward Music and Plug Research for making this event happen.  ALL the acts were incredible and different from one another. I got to see my faves Tanya Morgan and Amp Live but got introduced to the sounds of Rat King, Pegasus WarningYC the Cynic, Wavy Spice, The Ton Tons, Emily Bell. Myth Sizer and his crew got the crowd moving and it was nice to finally meet and enjoy Denitia and Sene in the flesh!  And a big shout out to Wavy Spice the Versace Hottie for her flows! She knows how to work a crowd.

On another note, I am humbled by the amazing turn out of friends who came out and I got to see. Brooklyn really showed love and it was an honor to get the crowd moving through out the night.  It was also great to meet so many listeners of my radio show and fans of my blog as well. Sometimes when Im in the basement I really have no clue as to who is listening but after last night It’s very evident NYC is all ears!  Big love!  Until next time….
