My appearance in Big Time Rush Nickelodeon promo

I was a featured extra in a promo/video for a Nickelodeon boy band called Big Time Rush a while back. I played the engineer in the studio as the band is recording the song. It was a pretty fun day I must say. I finally found the clip and yes I am in it! It came out pretty cool and I definitely look like I belong in a studio setting. Check it out.

My Interview with Flying Lotus

I was lucky enough to do an in-person interview with Flying Lotus about a month ago. He was gearing up for the release of his new album (which comes out today) and I have been wanting to get him up on Nu-Soul for a while. I am really proud of this piece. I think I found out some things about Flying Lotus beyond just his music and it was a great, laid back experience for both of us.

5 Years Of Strictly Social - Thursday August 23, 2012

No matter how you look at it 5 years of doing anything is a pretty solid achievement. On August 23, 2012 I will be celebrating the 5th Anniversary of Strictly Social, the event that I began in August of 2007 with DJ Destroyer and Lucy Beer. While Lucy is no longer on board, Destroyer and I kept things going and produced a night that was unique in Los Angeles. The concept has always been to present soul music with an edge in a very contemporary and party driven way. As the main event showcase for my website Nu-Soul, Strictly Social became the place where I could book the artists that I thought were amazing. Surprisingly enough there were lots of people in LA who thought these artists were amazing as well.

Over the years I have hosted some truly outstanding performers both local and international, all the while helping to foster a community of artists in LA. Strictly Social has become more than I have ever imagined over the years. We have taken the show on the road to New York, San Francisco and San Diego, released several mixtapes and been the first to take a chance on some unknown artists. I have worked with such amazing people as N'Dea Daavenport, Sy Smith, Mark de Clive-Lowe and Lisa Shaw to name a small few.

For our 5th Anniversary we are taking things up a notch and moving to a new venue. The Echo in Echo park is going to be our new home and its a step up for sure. This well loved venue holds 350 people often has a show every day of the week. They have the knowledge, staff, and marketing to help take Strictly Social to the next level.

I am so excited to continue the journey of Strictly Social and I am committed to bringing the best lineups that I possibly can. I have always tried to find a balance between biggers names, buzzy new acts, and underground innovators over the years and I will continue to do so!

To purchase tickets for the 5th Anniversary show go to:

2 Birthday Parties for Me!

Another year another birthday! My birthday is on Thursday April 26 and in my normal eclectic fashion I decided to do 2 parties this year. The reason for this is mainly my very eclectic taste in music as well as the fact that I have friends from a variety of scenes and communities. And also I just happened to have 2 events scheduled at the time of my birthday so it makes sense.

The first party is Broke As F**k, my all breakbeat ans bass party that I throw with Eva. I tried to keep it eclectic this year with Doc Nasty from Florida as the headliner so that true Florida BASS sound that I love so much will be represented. As a special guest I brought on Joe Kay, who has been shaking up my world as of late with his Soulection record label and radio show. This is is all FREE! Plus since it's on Wednesday night it actually turns to my birthday at midnight which will be fun.

My second party is the next night with the one year anniversary of Nappy Thursday. This is for the soul music crowd and as a special treat I will also be celebrating the birthdays of 2 of the performers, Jimetta Rose and Rashondra Angelle. It's only $5 all night.

Check out the flyers for all the info!

It's ART+SOUL time Again!

It's that time once again when I gear up for a wonderful showcase of art and music. I do a lot of various events but ART+SOUL has quickly become my favorite. The last event had over 300 people and we are looking to pull in big numbers once again! What is so fun about this show is that it is a huge team effort. From the performers to the artists to the DJs to the vendors, everyone chips in to make it a success. The best part for people is that it's Free until 11pm so it makes it cheap Saturday night out!See you on March 3!

My Vision For Strictly Social Feb 2012

Really looking forward to this month's edition of my party with DJ Destroyer, Strictly Social, for a number of reasons. For one, it's my first purely electronic show I have done. There will not be any vocalists performing, just producers and beatmakers. And secondly I am re-introducing the B room for the first time really since we had Soul Good rocking Drum&Bass in there. This time, it will be Soulection, an incredible label and brand that I discovered who pretty much embody the Nu-Soul Magazine sound. So the night will be representing some of the best LA has to offer including Brainfeeder, AlphaPup, Plug Research, and Soulection. And of course Nu-Soul! So if all goes well the night will come off like a soulful Low End Theory which I think is the missing link in the LA scene. So excited for this shit!!!!

Check out Strictly Social:

One Year of Nu-Thursdays at Little Temple Feb 9, 2012

This Thursday February 9 I am celebrating another huge landmark. I have been holding down Thursday nights at Little Temple for a full year! I can't even believe that I did it. It was extremely difficult, rewarding, stressful and beautiful. I would have to say the biggest moment for me was getting to work with N'Dea Davenport!!!
So to celebrate I have another big lineup that will feature Plug Research artist and Erykah Badu collaborator Shafiq Husayn performing alongside his new LA movement that features Jimetta Rose, J. Mitchell, Breezy Lovejoy, and I,Ced. Also on tap are East Coast artists Maimouna Youssef and Gloria Ry'Ann.

You can get tickets for just $8 here:

Zo! and Sy Smith at Strictly Social 1.19.12

I return to my main haunt Little Temple this week for my first show of 2012. I am cutting down on the number of Nu-Thursdays nights that I do keeping it to about 2 or 3 per month as opposed to 4 or 5. But I hope to stack really good lineups and give myself enough time to promote each one. So far the year is looking good and the first one back features the always beautiful Sy Smith and the Foreign Exchange's Zo! This is a show a lot of folks have been asking for so I think it is going to be great!

If you are interested in checking it out there is a $10 discount list. Just RSVP to
