DJ Happy Hour : DJ Cee Brown

This week for DJ Happy Hour we have my good friend DJ Cee Brown up to talk about records, most specifically those risque joints you get a thrill out of dropping when DJing out and about. Cee is a super dope DJ based in Los Angeles, and immensely connected within and supportive of the DJ […]

Moment In Time

“And we go round and round, life is just a moment in time” The Pharcyde With it being Mothers Day season – I consume British, American, and French media so Spring brings a slightly groundhog-day-esque sensation with repeated Mothering Sunday ads and blog posts suggesting perfect gifts and brunch spots – I have been thinking […]

DJ Happy Hour : Induce

For this week’s DJ Happy Hour Q&A we have a very special, somewhat emotional, R&B edition with the homie Induce, a really dope L.A. based musician & DJ who I imagine must possess a truly exquisite – and eclectic – record collection. I first met Induce, aka Ryan Smith, through Wax Poetics when he dropped […]

DJ Happy Hour : Alex Asher Daniel

Since starting to play records out at bars and clubs I’ve noticed that often during a DJ set there will come a point, after being super conscientious and perfectly matching the feel of the music you’re playing to the stage of the night and vibe of the crowd, attempting to create the best energy and […]

Wax Poetics x Le Pigalle w/ The Funky Jems

I first met Melissa and Jennette, aka Melissa Witt and Madame Ette, on a Friday night out in Pigalle. We somehow got chatting at the bar of Le Sans Souci and quickly realised we had heaps in common, especially when it came to records. Rick James, Nu Shooz, Digital Underground, Kate Bush, Prince etc., we […]

Reachin’ Mixtape

In case you missed it! Last month we dropped a mix to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Digable Planets’ 1993 debut LP Reachin’ as part of the Wax Poetics x WhoSampled mix series. I always love Chris’ mixtapes .. the way he puts it all together – original sample material, album tracks, alternative versions, interview snippets, etc. – just […]

Wax Poetics x Le Pigalle w/ Bobafatt

It’s always such a treat getting to bring over my buddies from the U.K. for the Wax Poetics x Le Pigalle soiree, and having the homie Bobafatt here in Paris last month was no exception. I first met Bobby when I was working for Delicious Vinyl, and he was working for Rough Trade, back in […]

Los Angeles December 2017

Just before Christmas I made a somewhat last-minute trip out to California to see friends and family. When reflecting back on my time, the thing that really strikes me is how the littlest moments, modest in nature and often unexpected, are the ones that stay with you and seem to somehow mean the most … Don’t […]

Wax Poetics x Le Pigalle w/ DJ Matman

This weekend I had a blast welcoming the homie DJ Matman to Paris for the January edition of my Wax Poetics residency at Le Pigalle. Not only has Matman put together some fine mixtapes for the Wax Poetics x Whosampled series, but, he also edited my video interviews with Prince Paul and Dan the Automator […]

Guest Mix for Rinse France

Last month I was honoured to be invited to put together a guest mix for Rinse France by fellow Le Pigalle resident Onelight. Seeing as it was December and I was on a West End Records binge, my mix ended up being a Larry Levan/Christmas hip-hop song mash up (full tracklist below) – perfect for […]
