saturday may 26 | rocky dawuni + afrolicious live

Can’t wait to get behind the turntables for my first time mixing at the Teragram Ballroom! Check out this upcoming show on Saturday May 26th. I go back quite a ways with the leaders of both bands, as Rocky is one of the founders of LA’s Afro Funké event for which I serve as one of the resident deejays, while Afrolicious frontman Joe McGuire was one of the creators and resident deejays of the party bearing the same name as his band, which was a staple of San Francisco’s weekly music scene for seven years. Afro Funké and Afrolicious were definitely contemporaries and became close kin in our respective missions to showcase deep pan-African music on the west coast, with both events happening simultaneously every Thursday evening. I’m thrilled at any chance I have to play my favorite African tunes!

friday april 20 | latitude

My monthly music excursion known as LATITUDE returns this Friday night April 20th to General Lee’s Cocktail House in Chinatown Los Angeles! Alongside the jazz, rare groove, hip hop and groove heavy pan-African tunes that I’ve been mixing, this 420 edition will find me leaning into some extra reggae and dub tunes for the occasion. So roll (in however many ways that means to you)!

friday april 13 | piña

Heyyyy! It’s a PIÑA week!! Big thanks to everyone who came through last month for YUKICITO’s amazing birthday celebration. We’re back at EL DORATO DTLA this coming Friday April 13th, laying down the voodoo extra heavy on the dance floor for the occasion. Come on down under the ground and let’s see if we can make some magic once again!

tight circle.

Had another great outing at General Lee’s in the heart of LA’s Chinatown district this past Friday night. I’m proud to say that Friday’s crowd rallied and provided a little satisfaction and validation (as well as bragging rights!) thanks to the dance cipher they had going out on the floor–my first there in the three installments of my LATITUDE event thus far!

I’ll most likely have to skip the February installment on the 16th, so I’m hoping that whoever ends up covering for me keeps the momentum and the good vibes going. Stay tuned for announcements!
