SXSW Preview: Raphael Saadiq

Posted March 16, 2011 by | 0 Comments | 2,861 views]

From KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad:
The year was 1989, I was in 9th grade, and Tony! Toni! Tone! broke the top 10 of the Hot 100 with the single “Feels Good.” The song was electric. It was the gateway to an undeniable mojo that would last the group for a decade, garner them multi-platinum status, and make them critically acclaimed worldwide.
It was during this time …

Posted March 8, 2011 by | 0 Comments | 5,021 views]

Rashida Jones is one of my favorite comedic actresses – from “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation” to “I Love You, Man” (a movie I appreciate more and more as my boyfriend attempts to turn me into a Rush fan).  But, digging into her music tastes, it’s hard to ignore that Rashida is also the daughter of one of the most influential men in …

From KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad:
I love it when people turn me on to music. It’s a huge help when fans, listeners, and friends present me with something they themselves really dig. It’s a kind and very personal gesture that I truly appreciate.

Posted November 17, 2010 by | 0 Comments | 3,283 views]

From KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad:

With a production style slightly akin to German colleagues like Boozoo Bajou, CFCF’s sound is easing down the road of post modern international, instrumental soul-dance-hip hop. His sound is part classic CTI, part dawn after an all night intimate encounter, and part score for the next underwater Imax adventure. …
