Return To Oz (+ my 1st time in New Zealand)

Headed back on tour to Australia in a couple of weeks for the 1st time in 8 years, adding a couple stops in New Zealand this time around. Here’s the schedule so far, subject to change with some in the works additions. Got some really dope gigs lined up, both digital and 45s related…

Very much looking forward to getting out of the States and playing music for some different crowds. Peep the dates below and hit me on the socials to stay up on the scoop (i’ll be reporting from the event page as well — rsvp here). Let’s get funky my Aussies!

* here’s the 1st mix I made after my last trip to Australia, with a couple day layover in Malaysia where I scooped a nice chunk of 7s from a flea market in midtown Singapore. Remastered for modern systems — enjoy!

Credit to the edit, & more…

Been busy in the studio working on a lot of random things lately, edits as well as remixes, a 7″ release with Superjock Records outta NOLA, & an EP coming out next year on Needle To The Groove with a dope up & coming MC outta the bay named Edgewize, among other little treats I can’t announce just yet.

Speaking of gettin’ biz in the studio, cooked up this little Talking Heads edit just recently…

Appreciate everyone still paying attention. Throwing shows and 45 Sessions are still on hiatus — might do something early next year but we’ll see. Waiting for the hype around vinyl & 7s to settle down again so I can take it back to the essence, but not holding my breath. In the meantime go check out Hello Stranger in downtown Oakland, a new venue i’m currently music managing.

Thanks for taking the time family. Peace to you and yours!
