Of all of the episodes so far, this may be my favorite.
The music of James Dewitt Yancey has been instrumental in my upbringing, and it was actually after I attended his annual Donuts Are Forever celebration/party in New York which compelled me to want to become take my then-hobby of deejaying seriously.
As a sort of full circle moment, I was given the opportunity to participate in Donuts Are Forever this year. Needless to say, this was a relatively major moment in my life so my set for the latest episode of Left Coast Radio reflected that.
In my own way, I tried to memorialize the music of J Dilla as best I could with my set. As is the norm, b-sides, samples and everything in between were included. I hope that you, the listener, enjoy the mix as much as I did creating it.
Left Coast Radio airs every Friday night at 10pm EST (7pm PST) on Dash Radio‘s XXL station.
