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 […]

RARE EARTH : The Avalanches Interview

I often get asked how I fell so in love with hip-hop; it’s not what people expect me to say when asked about my tastes and profession. I didn’t exactly grow up surrounded by the music or culture – I grew up in Leicester, U.K. – and for the most part it wasn’t the music […]

A Family Affair

It was my last day in LA and such a perfect way to end my stay. I first met Jansport J in the summer of 2012 when he played DVTV (back when we used to party on the roof) and have been a fan of his music and vibe ever since. Needless to say, I […]

Sitting in the Park … with Dan the Automator

Back in the summer when I was bopping around California I had the honour of meeting Dan Nakamura, a.k.a. Dan the Automator, in his hometown of San Francisco. Dan is one of those producers who is behind such a varied array of great music, I’ve often felt as though I am constantly discovering that he […]
