Brooklyn’s finest, NICKODEMUS, is back in Los Angeles this week for AFRO FUNKÉ’s Springtime Celebration! He recently announced that his new full length album A Long Engagement hits music outlets on May 4th, so we’re thrilled that we’ll be among the first to hear him drop a few of its gems! Pre-order a copy now via Wonderwheel Recordings Bandcamp Page.

Of course, if you’re in LA this week, don’t miss NICKODEMUS alongside JEREMY SOLE and yours truly at AFRO FUNKÉ, going down at the TOWNHOUSE & DEL MONTE SPEAKEASY in Venice. Afro Funké 2018 Spring Celebration facebook event page

she’s already got it.

One of the best TED Talks that I’ve come across in a while. This is the blueprint for change…and a sterling example of why, as the shirt says and as the softer more nurturing and associative behaviors being championed here by Cleo Wade suggest, THE FUTURE IS FEMALE. Forget the saying “She’s Gotta Have It”, women already got it because they get it.

Did my weekly check-in at TED.com to see if there were any new talks to check out and found this lil’ nugget that I posted above. Though I’m nowhere near as obsessive about finding rare vinyl as are these hardcore collectors or even as are many friends in my community of LA deejays, I’ve been collecting music since I was about eight years old and definitely understand the passion and the lengths diggers will go to in their quests for ‘holy grail’ items. Spend a few minutes with this…it’s pretty cool and his anecdotal material on the importance and relevance of diggin’ is spot on.
