I was interviewed for Nu-Soul Radio!


One of my side projects is Nu-Soul Radio which is a podcast where Morgan Rhodes, a wonderful radio host from KPFK, interviews the artist that I book at my events. Well I got my chance to sit down with Morgan and we talked about my upbringing, my raver days, my start as a journalist, and finally the creation of Nu-Soul Magazine and all my events. Enjoy this in depth interview!

Hanging with Electric Wire Hustle

As a part of my ongoing support of the Los Angeles music scene, I got the chance to interview the very buzz worthy act from New Zealand, Electric Wire Hustle while they were in town for a big show at Zanzibar. They posted this pic on their blog since we were laughing at all the signs by their hotel pool. These guys were super cool and if you haven't heard of them, please check them out. They mix classic deep soul sounds with futuristic Dilla style prouductions.Gotta love the Kiwis!
