I had a great conversation with Oakland's DJ Platurn a few weeks back, after he made a visit to LA for Boombox's Native Tongue Appreciation night.  I scooped up his new mix CD, "So This is De La Heaven, PT2," which is an amazing De La Soul tribute, and we talked in depth about this project (which took him over a year to make).  Listen and enjoy!

Joining a weekly radio show: Soundwaves Radio

February 2, 2014 at 3:20 pm
soundwaves-logo Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you had a great holiday, filled with friends, family, and good music.  2014 is off to a great start.  Just before Christmas, I was sitting at Aloha Kitchen, one of my favorite breakfast spots in Little Tokyo DTLA, with my wife.  We had been going back and forth  the past week or so about what my plans are for radio, how I'm going to make my dreams happen, and why I'm not there yet.  During breakfast we were having a similar conversation, when I received a phone call from SeanO, whose radio show on KPFK I had recently dropped a guest DJ set on.  Normally I would never interrupt a meal with my wife, but something made me pick up that phone.  I'm glad I did, because Sean was calling to invite me to join the team for his weekly show, Soundwaves Radio.  You can now hear me on LA airwaves late every Friday night, from 2-4am, on 90.7FM KPFK.  Truly the law of attraction in full effect right there, y'all, and I can't thank my wife enough for helping me put that energy out there, and to SeanO for making that phone call.  I'm grateful for this opportunity, and invite you to take this journey with me.  Head to Facebook and LIKE our page to stay in the know about upcoming guests and DJ's, and past show archives. Late Friday/Early Saturdays Soundwaves Radio @ KPFK 90.7FM -2am-4am -Los Angeles airwaves on 90.7FM, worldwide on kpfk.org, and through smartphones via the Pacifica Radio app. -Hip Hop, Funk, World Music, Soul, Jazz, and Electronic goodness, brought to you by SeanO, Frank Foreal, DJ Gro Weyez, DJ Panamami, and Val The Vandal plus guest dj sets and interviews from the world's finest music curators.  

Live Mix: Frank Foreal @ Touch Vinyl “Open Tables” 11/7/13

February 2, 2014 at 3:08 pm
20131119-184223.jpg There's a really cool record store in West LA that I recently discovered (late pass), called Touch Vinyl.  I found out they have an open tables event every Thursday, so I thought it would be fun to spin some records there.  They liked my set enough to post on their Soundcloud page, so now you can enjoy.  The selection there is well curated, from new releases in numerous genres to classic albums in great condition (saw D'angelo's "Voodoo" album on the wall, promo). Music from Little Dragon, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Thes One, John Klemmer, and much more. 20131119-184304.jpg

Lord Echo “Put It In My Head”

November 19, 2013 at 6:31 pm
lordechojpg Great new album from New Zealand's Lord Echo, courtesy of Bastard Jazz Recordings.  Vibes for days here, friends.  From the spacey to the afro-disco sounds, this 6 minute burner features the awesome vocal talents of Mara TK, of Electric Wire Hustle.  Throw this record on and let it take you places.

Choice 37 feat. Lauren Santiago “Back To Cuba”

October 13, 2013 at 9:00 am
  Choice37 I heard my boy DJ A-1 play this at Scenario tonight (a local friendly getdown), and this transported me to about 2006, when my man Choice 37 was putting out some seriously solid material (he has since moved to Korea to pursue music).  The amazing vocal talents of Lauren Santiago can be heard around the break.  Latin, b-boy, funky goodness right here.  It has a danceable vibe with heavy drums, but then hits you with this really soulful keyboard/vocal breakdown that just stops you in your tracks.  So glad I heard this tonight! Free Download here.

Oh Land “Three Chances”

October 1, 2013 at 8:00 am
ohland-wishbone Swoon.  Of course she's Danish.  I randomly stumbled across Oh Land today, and I'm not regretting it.  Great sounds, from dance tunes to dream pop goodness like "Three Chances" below. "Wish Bone" is available now on Tusk or Tooth Records.
