Santana of TRUTHSEEKERS RADIO gave me the opportunity to spin one hour and thirty minutes of "stuff" LIVE on 90.7 FM, KPFK, Los Angeles!! It was a good time for me, even though it was a night of technical difficulties [Damn you Pioneer DJ-SSX!!!]. Please excuse the slight distortion. It gets a little better later in the set.
If you get a chance, take a listen. Santana starts the show with some slow and sensual electronic goodness…namely a cover of the Weeknd's What You Need by Banks, followed by FKA, RU and lovely piece called Honey, by DjRUM. OH -- Also… a new favorite of mine in his set, Reva DeVito's cover of Sade's Sweetest Taboo. If you like it slow and sensual and you never heard of these songs, you need to take the time.
I go on about 30 minutes into the show. I played quite a few songs from Jamila's upcoming EP entitled, Love is Sexy, including the publicly available singles, Feeling Friendly and Crazy (available on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon and more). Check those out. I started my set with a wee snip of a remix in progress called Loaded. I love the original and, of course, the originator. She and her band of merry men paved the path upon which I walk. Speaking of which, I was sure to play the chill ditty I Walk by Mister Lies. I love that tune and the one that follows in the set.
Being on radio is not as stressful as being on TV. After all, no one can see you. But - I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. :)
Later in the set I get into a bit of faster pieces… I Miss You (Ta-Ku), 2652, my Rhianna Remix and, last but not least, my remix of Masia's MakeUp (ft. Isis Salam & Black Molly). Good joints for your new years eve dance floor madness.
Given the recent events surrounding me, I had to close the set with some positivity, notably Ahmed Sirour's Love Another. If you don't know this song, take the time. A friend of some friends was recently shot and killed in an act of senseless violence in Los Angeles. The more I think about it, the more I tear up as I type…and I didn't even know him well. We definitely need to Love Another and this song says it all. I am grateful for the songs existence.
Much love and respect to the entire TruthSeekers crew. I hope to be a part of that community while I am on my journey.
Love & Respect,
Man in a Loft.
