I'm going to have to pick this up; mellow, but I'm still nodding my head and tapping my feet to it. Some good muted bass that's letting the scratches and other bits stay up front.

shout out to DJ PLATURN - an amazing DJ who has been a guest on this show few times over the years - including one time when he stopped by a remote from the Knitting Factory when it was still in Manhattan and 2 and a half years ago when (with lots of other DJs) did a remote from the Oakland Museum of CA (OMCA)……NOTE that I will be back at OMCA doing another live remote WFMU show - plus some lectures during an upcoming VINYL exhibit at the California museum….More on that later…..WFMU Marathon is coming up in 2 weeks or less……Am going to have copies of this DE LA mix by Platurn as among the prizes…..

Avatar    Fri. 2/14/14 7:51pm Studio B Ben:

Yeah, Grieves is all right some times. Energetic live show, but definitely doesn't have the real punch like a lot of other Rhymesayers people. Step Brothers is a good cure for that.
