Yesterday, my mix Excuse The Exxxpression, It's Sexual Tension was premiered by LargeUp.com. It's a 100% x-rated dancehall mix, the third in my series of curated concept mixtapes this year. (Peep the others below.) Also honored to be featured on Kingston 2 LA. You're going to be hard-pressed to find a better dancehall mix for your dance party once the lights go down.
Today I released a brand-new DJ mix, Summer Leaves Change To Fall (A Cuffing Season Mix). It's a 97-min concept/theme mix on saying farewell to Summer, saying hello to the Fall (and cuffing season). The cover art is original design by my friend Lily McFly.
I recently had a opportunity to follow up on a 6,500 word story I wrote a few years ago for Forbes.com on the label/collective Soulection by producing and directing a video on Forbes 30 Under 30 2017 list in music honoree, Joe Kay, for Forbes' 30 Under 30 video series.

You may have heard that The REFRESH is currently on hiatus. After more than 45 weeks (Shows # 61 - 106), our venue, The Late Late Bar, had issues with the local community board when attempting to renew its liquor license last week and as a result had to abruptly cancel our show. We hope to be back in the Fall 2017. Always check itstheREFRESH.com for the latest info.
Today, I released a new DJ mix, called Pieces Of My Heart (Mix). Clocks in at 92 minutes and is a thematic mix about love and heartbreak, based on the Japanese concept of Kintsukuroi, the idea of repairing broken ceramics with powdered gold filling their cracks and thus making them more beautiful than before. It was premiered earlier today along with a nice interview and feature on Vashtie.com. The cover art is an original painting by my friend Ambi (with additional design from Sajjad).
