music mix | marina soul club #18

Music is Love, so we can’t stop, won’t stop despite everything happening in Washington, around the country, and around the world. Here in Southern California, we were blessed with another beautiful Sunday, so I’ve uploaded the first Marina Soul Club mix (#018) of 2021 on my Mixcloud page!

Despite setting off with soft rock over the first three tunes, the set exudes energy quickly, sending out buoyant vibes all the way through. The set also expands beyond the familiar shores of America and Brazil with our first Japanese entry: Haruko Kuwana‘s Million Stars, a cover of Hawaiian fave Mackey Feary Band‘s beloved A Million Stars. We hope (and suspect!) that the MSC yacht will continue to be pulled back to the other side of the Pacific rim!

Enjoy these 15 songs over 54 minutes and, remember, it’s more than yacht rock…it’s Marina Soul!

wednesday may 13 | artworx la

Tonight at 7pm PDT, I’ll be doing a feature live stream deejay set from my @glennzenn Instagram account in support of an amazing community organization called Artworx LA, currently hosting an online art auction as part of their 2020 fundraising campaign.

To help infuse some music into the online experience for donors and bidders, the folks at Artworx have invited one of our fantastic Los Angeles deejays to offer a live set on social media.

I’m among some talented company with the likes of Ale Cohen of Dublab, Novena Carmel of KCRW, and DJ degruvme of my own La Junta crew bringing their unique repertoires in support of the cause!

Tune in from Instagram this evening, either from @glennzenn10 or @artworxla. Below is a bit more about Artworx LA’s important mission. Be sure to check out the online auction as well!
