It's been a long time since I've ventured into the depths of my own country. This time I had the honor, and pleasure to rock with my dudes Opio (Souls of Mischief/ Hieroglyphics), DJ Scientific and AaGee. Opio and I just recently started working on some new sounds. Listen to one of our first experiments, "Blow sum Smoke," and stay tuned for more..
Travel Tip #1: When traveling in a group, always check the 1 night AirBnb deals, where you'll find pads like this, that are cheaper than hotel rooms, and come with a bottle of champagne.. #PinkyUp begins..
This is how we chill from 3:30 till.... soundcheck. Much love to Adrian Younge for hosting us, and blessing us with all sorts of previews. Seriously.. stay tuned for the new Souls of Mischief album, as well as anything this guy touches.
Big shout out to Polaroid Jay (polaroidjay.tumblr.com) for always capturing Bay Area galavanting.
I knew I had to come back home for something. Thankfully I got home right in time to write the line-up for the OBEY stage, and send it out to the artists. Big shouts to Moonblock Party, Phil, Ryan, all the bands, DJs, vendors, mutants, and the people for making the first Downtown Santa Ana Block Party happen. lets do it again next year!
Great times on the streets! Joe Kay closing out the evening with new selections from Soulection
