Over the summer, I began compiling some of my favorite 45’s to share out with the world. I ended up spinning all-45 sets at LeMellotron in Paris, Danny Halloway’s Blazing 45’s in LA and over at Joey Altruda’s new Shanghai Noir night at General Lee’s in Chinatown (LA).
In case you are in the need of some solid mixes on vinyl, here’s a batch of recent DJ mixes that have surfaced online…
I hope you enjoy these selections as much as I do…
Long-time collaborators Quadron just released a new video for the track “Favorite Star” off of their recent album Avalanche featuring my Brassive Attack horn section: Tracy Wannomae (winds), Elizabeth Lea (trombone) and Pablo Calogeo (winds). Avalanche is a special album with lush vocals, grooves, and textures. Coco O and Robin Hannibal are musical geniuses. Peep this sexy clip courtesy of OkayPlayer.com:
I’m proud to announce that I am the music director for Kelis. I worked extensively on her new album, FOOD, along with producer extraordinaire Dave Sitek providing horn and string arrangements in addition to recording brass. This record has been so much fun to work on. It features some of the finest musicians in LA.
The horns are such a big part of the sound, Kelis has asked me to direct both UK and US bands. I am excited and eager to be a part of this experience. Kelis has always been one of my favorite contemporary vocalists with her brilliant tastes and always impressive voice. It’s a treat working with her. We see eye-to-eye and share the same musical sensibilities.
