Once again, I’ve been overwhelmed by various activities, and haven’t been very consistent in my postings…
One of these activities was the third installment of the successful Sunday @ The Training Shed event, which once again brought delicious food (mmm, lamb burgers!), cool beats, and fun vibes to everyone.
This time around I played a funky selection of my latest finds, mainly 60s Italian grooves and some good old Florida funk.
Among the various projects I’m working on are a couple of Christmas parties (one of which is very exciting but I won’t say anything yet in fear of jinxing it), my weekly radio show on Sonar (every Saturday from 8 to 10pm and a repeat on Wednesdays from 3 to 5pm), a guest stint at PS Café (a very colorful Mexican tequila night!), organizing the next latino party at Piedra Negra (most probably for January or February), and other work-related activities.
I’m also working on a couple of 8tracks playlists (a jazzy Christmas one and a hip-hop/funk one) and on an upcoming promo Mixtape for Pushin’ On (I’m hoping to focus it on my latest Blaxploitation discoveries. Speaking of which, I’d like to include soundtrack music from Mexploitation films, but such music is proving harder to find than I had initially expected…).
On top of all that I’m also going through my archives to find all the tracklists for all my Sonar radio shows. This week I streamed my 12th radio show and I haven’t posted any of the playlists for the past 6 or 7 shows…I promise to post it all as soon as possible!
In other news, there are a couple of videos and sounds I’d like to share, mostly stuff that good friends of mine have been doing these past few weeks.
We went all out for the event and decorated the place with lots of traditional Mexican decorations brought back from our travels.
There were food and beer specials, live music downstairs, my friend Adrien prepared some very cool visuals, and all three DJs (including Sanakan, a regular at Lantern) helped the crowd dance their butts off.
Below are my recorded live set, the 8tracks playlist I had prepared for the event, and some photos I took when not sipping on a delicious margarita.
Hope you enjoy!
PS: Make sure you keep checking this space for announcements of upcoming latino parties the Colectivo Boda de Rancho will keep organising at Piedra Negra. Hopefully this will become a regular gig that latinos living or travelling in Singapore will recommend to each other.
Last Sunday afternoon was held the much-awaited second edition of Sunday @ The Training Shed, and just like last time, many people turned out to enjoy sunny weather, great food, cold drinks, fresh air, and outdoor music!
I played some of my newest jazz and funk discoveries, and the Pushin’ On crew later played some great reggae, hip hop, and soul.
