Midori Takada‘s Mkwaju Ensemble fuses percussive African music, early electronic music and jazz with a decidedly Japanese sensibility.
I’m lugging a crate of my favorite jazz, funk, soul, and reggae 45s into the DJ booth for a rare all-vinyl set at The Lodge at Red Rocks!
DJ Day just released his 2nd LP, Land of 1000 Chances, and hot damn it’s an beautiful piece of work. Constructed from samples and live musicians deep in the California desert, the entire record drips with melancholic soul. Great for the headphones, gloomy winter days in the living room, or late-night country drives.
