Dutty Artz’ lastest features a remix by myself featuring Afro-Mexican rapper Bocafloja. I took Cocotaxi’s original digital Andean-cumbia influenced track, and injected a little bit of African flavor by tapping into the Afro-Bolivian Saya tradition from the Yungas communities outside of La Paz. Check it out below.

I have to say I am very excited that it is time for me to put this up: Banana Clipz Preview Mega-Mini Mix I’ve been waiting to do this style of mix for years. The influence from all those Dancehall mixes I absorbed as a youth have been smashed into this 8 minute laser extravaganza.

Double posting with Ghetto Bassquake I just spent a few days down south in the land de los angeles. I flew over California and watched trees burn. I landed amongst the pacific haze that the area is known for (a combination of the sea mist, fire smoke, and pollution.) Spending time with a childhood friend of Greek parentage and cultural heritage, who had just come back from 2 months in Greece, we were grooving to some of the latest sounds […]
I’m uploading this mix to promote my regular Wednesday night gig here in San Francisco at the Tunnel Top (601 Bush Street.) It is a mix of African Pop, Caribbean and African American musics that are an indication of some of the styles I play at the night. I call the night African Booty Scratchers. That’s Americans’ derogatory word for African Immigrants in the United States. Being 2nd generational, people called me and my family that when I was growing […]
