Kindness – “World Restart (Ft. Kelela & Ade)”
At every music festival I go to, my favorite set of the day is ALWAYS a band I’ve never seen before. I see a lot of music so an unexpected surprise is always the most impactful and welcome. This weekend at FYF Fest, that band was Kindness.
WOW. They were great.
Kindness is 32-year-old Adam Bainbridge, who performs with …

In the last 2 weeks DJ/Producer Daniel Avery as has in Manchester, London, Chicago and Seattle.
Next 2 weeks he will be in Ibiza, Glasgow, Amsterdam and Croatia.
This weekend at FYF Fest, he’ll no doubt be playing a finely tuned set of pure wavy dancefloor fire. I caught up with him briefly (literally between flights) to see how he’s holding up…

Guy Gerber & Puff Daddy – “11 11″

The long-rumored collaboration between the unlikely duo of Guy Gerber and Puff Daddy (as he is apparently now known as again) is finally here and it’s probably not what you’re expecting.
Gerber is an Israeli-born producer is primarily known for his cerebral tech house productions.
And that’s pretty much what you’re getting with “11 11” — it’s a Guy …

Fyf Fest 2014 final

The time has come, once again, per annual tradition, for KCRW DJ Marion Hodges and I like to share our personal FYF Festival picks.
This year is not a particularly easy one to cover as it’s possibly the best line-up the Fest has had to date (and arguably the best line-up of any festival in Southern California this year).
Like wow.
There isn’t a single kink in the line-up, so you …

Bahamas Covers Bobby Womack: “Please Forgive My Heart”

Posted August 21, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 837 views]
Bahamas by Brian Lowe

When I first heard Bobby Womack’s “Please Forgive My Heart”, what really stood out (aside from his always soul-barring vocal delivery) was the ultra-modern production.
Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz) and Richard Russell (one of the founders of XL Recordings) produced the track, which was part of his first album of original material in 18 years.
It was striking, combining deep emotional depth with the electronic stylings of …

There has been a Queen resurgence that I have really been enjoying.
I recently read an incredible article in Rolling Stone, surviving members of the band are touring for the first time in 30 years, and here in LA the Center Theatre Group is presenting a musical based on their music (I hear the female lead has an extraordinary voice).
I grew up hearing “We Will …

Leftfield UK dance stalwart Richard Norris has been in the game since the early days of Acid House, but unlike his peers Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan, Norris has maintained (and seemingly purposefully fostered) an air of relative anonymity.
The driving force behind The Grid, The Time & Space Machine and as half of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (his collaborative project with Alkan) Norris has …
