chinatown five.

if any of you caught my 30-minute set this past Sunday at LA’s BEAT SWAP MEET in Chinatown, here are five of the eight songs i threw on**.   to put them in context, i’ll just say that i was tryin’ to switch up the vibe after the three deejays before me played mostly 80’s boogie (which seems to be the prevalent sound at BSM these days).


> MELANIE “Brand New Key”


> JULIE DRISCOLL & BRIAN AUGER “Season Of The Witch”


> PAUL SIMON “Peace Like A River”


> DAMON ALBARN w/AFEL BOCOUM, TOUMANI DIABATE & FRIENDS “Le Hogon”


> ZANI DIABATE & THE SUPER DJATA BAND “Facia”

and here’s an extra one i played just because it feels good…


> ARMAND PASCAL LIDO & L’IVOIRO STAR “Dogbo Zo N’Wene”

**i wanted to post Ellen McIlwaine’s cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Up From The Skies”, but couldn’t find a video.   it was the second song in my set. definitely look up her albums, songs and youtube videos 😉
