setlist | artworx la ‘gala29’

Much love everyone who tuned in to the La Junta LA Instagram Live earlier tonight for my dance party set celebrating the Artworx LA Gala29 fundraiser! Hope you had the chance to boogie a bit!

After only one brief shutdown by the IG powers that be, we were able to save the last 22+ minutes of the rhythmic, high energy set. They took me down for playing a cover of Nina Simone‘s ‘See Line Woman’, shortened to just ‘See Line’ by Toli & the Femm Nameless [clenching fist!]. I’m bummed that two-thirds of the broadcast was lost, but at least we have the uptempo part still. Catch in on La Junta’s IG feed @lajuntala.

For the several folks that messaged me after my set, here’s my set list below. Thanks for asking and happy hunting!

setlist | artworx la live

Sincere gratitude to everyone who tuned in on Wednesday night for my featured deejay set on the @artworxla Instagram live stream! Leading up to the moment that I dropped the needle on the first tune, I was apprehensive about doing it at all. I hadn’t worked out on my turntables since the COVID-19 lockdown in LA began at 12am on March 16. I had just finished up my Marina Soul Club set at the Bamboo Club in Long Beach when was I learned that the official lockdown/stay home order had been given by California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Up until about a week or so, before the live stream invitations began rolling in, my mixer and turntables were still packed up and I was feeling rusty both physically, and because I had spent zero time listening to the Afro-Latin music for which most people know me. Uncertainty over the robustness of my Wi-Fi bandwidth and if it could convey a quality streaming experience was also a major concern.

However, after spending a few hours with my hands on the records, I felt like I could do it well enough. I was most definitely uplifted by everyone’s positive comments on the chat and the fact that it was beautiful to have friends in the ‘room’ listening! So for those that have asked, here are the tracks from my set. Thanks again and happy hunting!
