Can’t wait to rock a guest set in LA Chinatown on Saturday night with my heavyweight vinyl diggin’ friends from the BARRIO FUNKY crew!! Even more sweet is that the featured live bands, YANGA and EL SANTO GOLPE are also friends with whom I’ve worked on some great shows in recent years. With Chinatown currently showing the sweeping effects of gentrification in LA, a big ¡Salud! to Barrio Funky for keeping it 100% wax with real music and real folks holding down the dance floor each month.
Speaking of wax, I enjoy opportunities like this, to keep it old school and go back to my roots by playing an all-vinyl set. I still buy vinyl weekly, but it just got tedious preselecting, packing and then hauling crates or bags full of records when I began playing multiple nights per week. However, you’ll almost always see at least one bag of wax behind the turntables with me whenever I’m out deejaying. Come through and join us at upstairs at the Grand Star Jazz Club if you feel the need to boogie this weekend!
MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU and MAY the 5th be in DTLA with me. Got two spots where we can clink glasses:
First I’ll be here at MEZCALERO DTLA from 7:30 to 10pm
Then heading over to EL DORADO BAR DTLA to join my fam LA JUNTA as we sip and get down into the wee hours.
