This Week on Soul Circle Radio : DJ A-Ski (Unique74)

Sat 03.08.14

Soul Cir­cle Radio Presents.… 

Over the past three decades, A-Ski has become one of the most trusted musi­cal tastemak­ers in the U.S. and beyond. As a Dj, pro­ducer and musi­col­o­gist, he con­sis­tently raises the bar in per­for­mance and show­man­ship. His style, often described as “refresh­ing and energetic”, has earned this music afi­cionado a loyal fol­low­ing and a rep­u­ta­tion as “the life of the party.” His eclec­tic selec­tions, turnta­bal­ism and
skill­ful approach to MC’ing, make him a triple threat to his peers.  Refus­ing to rely on gim­micks or trends, A-Ski’s rep­u­ta­tion is solely built on a sin­cere love of music, dance and atmos­phere. “Improv­ing the qual­ity of life through sound” is his mantra, which has main­tained the longevity of this Los Ange­les native’s career in music.

This Week on Soul Circle Radio : Jansport J (Delicious Vinyl)

Sat 02.22.14 Soul Cir­cle Radio Presents.…..

Jans­port J 

Los Angeles-based Music Pro­ducer Jans­port J offi­cially joins the Deli­cious Vinyl fam­ily to debut whatis arguably his most com­pre­hen­sive work with The Soul Provider LP. Jans­port J has built up a solid resme over the past few years, releas­ing 6 solo projects as well as pro­duc­tion work that have fea­tured artists such as Snoop Dogg, Ab-Soul, DOM Kennedy, Glasses Mal­one and Fred­die Gibbs. 

 With a strong influ­ence from leg­endary pro­duc­ers J Dilla, Pete Rock, Madlib, DJ Pre­mier and 9th Won­der, J cul­ti­vates his very own brand of soul music with his lat­est effort. The Soul Provider LP starts off imme­di­ately with J bring­ing the lis­tener into his world and inter­pre­ta­tion of what soul music is today, with the open­ing  track “A King Before The Crown” assert­ing that the filed of music is “all that I really know”.
He con­tin­ues the voy­age into soul music by pro­vid­ing the sound­track for every­day emo­tions and expe­ri­ences that the aver­age per­son can relate to, with songs such as “New Love”, “Sport’s Ode II (To Feel Love)”, and “Life”. This album, sim­i­lar to J’s pre­vi­ous work, will serve as the back­drop for var­i­ous lifestyles, from the every­day lis­tener at the cof­fee shop, to the upcom­ing emcee in search of instru­men­tals that will ignite their cre­ativ­ity. The Soul Provider LP is yet another sub­stan­tial work to add to what many in the music indus­try and fan­base con­sider to be an impres­sive cat­a­logue from the West Coast Producer.
Get on board with The Soul Provider him­self now…because the legacy has just begun.

This Week on Soul Circle Radio : DJ Cee Brown (Bodega x Delicious Vinyl)

CEE BROWN (Bodega I Deli­cious Vinyl)

Although DJ CeeBrown’s music career started in 1995, his love and pas­sion for music began as a child study­ing his uncle, an avid record col­lec­tor in the 70s and 80s. With an ear trained from his youth, CeeBrown’s pas­sion for DJing was ignited by DMC com­pe­ti­tions, learn­ing bat­tle rou­tines per­formed by greats such as the Beat Junkies, X-man & ISP.

Through stead­fast devo­tion and a nat­ural tal­ent for the art of performance, Cee Brown quickly acquired turntable skills that would lead to sev­eral West Coast Tours in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, and even­tu­ally to Europe and Japan, where he solid­i­fied him­self as an inter­na­tional pres­ence amongst well-respected artists. Between 2004 and 2008, Cee Brown amassed an impres­sive body of work, releas­ing var­i­ous mix­tapes, becom­ing band­mates with Bel­gium lumi­nary DJ Graz­zhoppa, & DJing for The Phar­cyde on their crit­i­cally acclaimed reunion at Rock the Bells Tour (2008).

After decades of refin­ing his craft, Cee Brown is now widely rec­og­nized as one of the key fig­ures in Dj cul­ture, both in his home­town of Los Ange­les and abroad. To date, his Dj sets have been fea­tured on a num­ber of pop­u­lar radio shows across the nation, including South­ern California’s KPFK and New York’s East Vil­lage Radio. Since 2012 he has embarked on sev­eral world tours as a Deli­cious Vinyl Dj with Bizarre Ride Live, a show cel­e­brat­ing the twenty year release of the clas­sic album, Bizarre Ride to the Phar­cyde. He cur­rently holds a res­i­dency at the famed Nokia The­atre, as well as at Bodega, one of LA’s fastest grow­ing and most pop­u­lar par­ties, which he began in 2009.

With an ever widen­ing musi­cal taste that includes hip hop, Brazil­ian beats, samba, soul­ful house and Dub­step, Cee Brown con­tin­ues to rein­vent him­self, while ignit­ing dance floors across the coun­try and beyond.

This Week on Soul Circle Radio : Stro Elliot (The Procussions)

Stro Elliot is a musi­cal mixol­o­gist. As a child of mil­i­tary par­ents, he trav­elled the world amar­i­nat­ing in a record col­lec­tion that spanned from jazz greats like Miles Davis, Stan Ken­ton, and Her­bie Han­cock, to funk/soul lumi­nar­ies like Ste­vie Won­der, Funkadelic, Quincy Jones and Prince. Study­ing trum­pet, piano, and then drums, Stro became a skilled multi-instrumentalist, even as he began to explore the world of hip hop, drawn to the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, The Phar­cyde, and Ice Cube.

Stro began his pro­duc­tion career while study­ing music at the Uni­ver­sity of North­ern Col­orado. As a found­ing mem­ber of critically-acclaimed hip hop group The Pro­cus­sions, Stro pro­duced their debut sin­gle, “All That It Takes,” which hit the top ten on CMJ’s national hip hop chart. Rid­ing this wave of atten­tion, Stro moved with the group to LA, gain­ing praise for his uniquely var­ied beat­work on their inde­pen­dent debut, As Iron Sharp­ens Iron, and his live ses­sion drums and Rhodes piano on their impro­vised EP, Up All Night.

When The Pro­cus­sions were cho­sen to spear­head the relaunch of clas­sic hip hop imprint, Rawkus Records, Stro received even fur­ther crit­i­cal acclaim for his pro­duc­tion work on their major label debut, 5 Spar­rows For 2 Cents. Invited to tour with child­hood heroes like A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and The Roots, Stro found his fusion of hip hop, soul, and jazz-fusion gain­ing praise from tastemak­ers and fel­low pro­duc­ers like J Rocc (Beat Junkies), DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Lefto, and Maseo (De La Soul).

Even while tour­ing the globe with and keep­ing The Pro­cus­sions sup­plied with beats, Stro found time to work with a wide range of respected inde­pen­dent hip hop artists includ­ing Light­headed, Ohmega Watts, Braille, and Shar­lok Poems (of LA Sym­phony). When, in 2007, The Pro­cus­sions took an indef­i­nite hia­tus Stro con­tin­ued pro­duc­ing, pro­vid­ing pro­duc­tion for artists such as Wrekonize (of ¡May­day!), One Block Radius, and Phonte. He has also brought his tal­ents and expe­ri­ence as a writer, arranger, and vocal­ist to mul­ti­ple col­lab­o­ra­tions with his for­mer Pro­cus­sions band­mate, Mr J. Medeiros.

Stro has con­tin­ued to push his bound­aries, pro­vid­ing sound­tracks for work by film­maker Hilton Carter’s short film, Vic­tor, and ani­ma­tion series, Lessons. He con­tin­ues to receive praise from for his unique blends of live instru­men­ta­tion, sam­ples, and pro­gram­ming as show­cased on The Pro­cus­sions’ self-titled return album, due to be released Sep­tem­ber 24, 2013.
